With her expressive blue eyes, soft, Southern-tinged voice and an acting range that can carry her from hysterically funny to terrifying in seconds, Patricia Arquette is one of the most underrated, talented actresses of her generation. Though she's been working for years, she's always stayed just under the radar of true stardom, despite a 1995 marriage to Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage. Patricia was born on April 8, 1968, in Chicago, though the family soon moved to a commune near Arlington, Virginia. Her parents, Lewis Arquette and Mardi, had 4 other children: Rosanna Arquette (nine years older), Richmond (5 years older), Alexis Arquette(one year younger) and David Arquette (three years younger). At 15, Patricia ran away from home to live with Rosanna and, after initial insecurity, got her start in showbiz at 18 in Pretty Smart (1987). A year later, she gained attention for her starring role in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987), considered by many to be the best film of the Nightmare series. In 1989, Patricia's son, Enzo (father is Paul Rossi), was born. Soon after, her career took off, and she has since appeared in such critically acclaimed movies as True Romance (1993), Beyond Rangoon (1995), Ethan Frome (1993), Lost Highway (1997) and Flirting with Disaster (1996). She won a CableACE award in 1991 for her portrayal of a deaf epileptic in Wildflower (1991) (TV). In 1997, after her mother died of breast cancer, Patricia took the lead in the fight against the disease. She's run in the annual Race for the Cure and in 1999 was the Lee National Denim Day spokesperson.
