Lili Taylor

An acclaimed figure in American independent movies of the 1990s, Lili Taylor worked with some of the best filmmakers of the era and went on to align herself with quality productions on HBO. Throughout her career, Taylor offered soulful performances of outsiders and complicated misfits in films including "Household Saints" (1993) and "I Shot Andy Warhol" (1996), a fact-based biopic of a troubled would-be assassin. Taylor's insistence on only working with fully developed, three-dimensional characters limited her options in mainstream film, though she was occasionally tapped to lend her quiet intensity to supporting roles in Hollywood movies such as "Say Anything" (1989), "High Fidelity" (2000) and "Public Enemies" (2009). Increasingly visible on primetime cable television, Taylor appeared in a recurring role on "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-05) and co-starred in box office hits like "The Conjuring" (2013) and "Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" (2015) while maintaining her title as an independent film mainstay, known for imbuing a remarkable stillness and vulnerability into her well-chosen roles.
