Full Biography

A star of stage and screen, Swoosie Kurtz has been in the biz now for four decades.



Her movie credits include Liar, Liar, Cruel Intentions, Dangerous Liasons and Reality Bites and Citizen Ruth.



On telly Swoosie has appeared in ER, Heroes, Desperate Housewives and the awesome-sounding Texas Cheerleading Murdering Mom.



More recently she popped up in Nurse Jackie and played the eye patch-wielding Aunt Lily in Pushing Daisies.



Oh and if you’re wondering where she got her unique name from, her father, an Olympic diving champion and the most decorated Air Force pilot of World War II, named her after ‘The Swoose,’ the B-17 plane he flew in the war. Fancy that!
