Glenne Headly

Glenne Aimee Headly (born March 13, 1955) is an American actress of film, stage and television. Glenne Headly was born in New London, Connecticut and her first years were spent living under the care of her mother in San Francisco and her maternal grandmother in Pennsylvania. Early in her elementary school years, she joined her mother who was then living in Greenwich Village, New York City and grew up having a rich cultural life. She studied ballet at the Robert Joffrey school of ballet and modern dance at the Martha Graham Studios. In New York, she attended public schools, including P.S. 41, where she was placed in an IGC class (for intellectually gifted children). It was here that a fifth grade teacher introduced her to the work of Jacques Cousteau in an oceanography class, spawning a lifelong interest for her in preserving the natural world. She later went on to the High School of Performing Arts, majoring in drama and graduated with honors. Rather than continuing to study the dramatic arts in college, she opted to spend her freshman year at a small American college in Switzerland.
