For the second consecutive year on this date, we have a WTHH headliner, as Daryl Hannah is celebrating her 57th. She attended USC and studied acting and dance, but had already made her first film appearance, in Brian De Palma’s The Fury, filmed when she was only 16. She first attracted notice as the replicant Pris in Blade Runner, and through the 1980s was a fairly prominent actress, starring as a mermaid named Madison in Splash and as the title character in Roxanne, and appearing in the ensemble cast of Steel Magnolias.
Hannah’s WTHH article details the subsequent course of her career. In the early 2000s, she had something of a resurgence. Indie film fans know this as the time she made Casa de los babys and Silver City with John Sayles, while action film audiences will remember her as Elle Driver in the Kill Bill films. Her most recent major project has been the regular role of Angelica Turing on Sense8.
