Daryl Christine Hannah (born December 3, 1960) is an American film actress. She is best known for her performances in the films Blade Runner, Splash, Roxanne, Wall Street, Steel Magnolias, and Kill Bill.
Hannah was born in Chicago, Illinois, to tugboat/barge company owner Donald Christian Hannah and producer/former schoolteacher Susan Jeanne Metzger. Her parents divorced and her mother subsequently married businessman Jerrold Wexler, brother of cinematographer Haskell Wexler. She grew up with siblings Don and Page Hannah and half-sister Tanya Wexler, in Long Grove, Illinois.
Hannah became interested in movies at a young age, partly due to insomnia. She says she was very shy growing up. Hannah attended the progressive Francis W. Parker School (where she played on the soccer team) before enrolling at the University of Southern California. She spent a lot of time studying ballet and acting.
Hannah wrote, directed and produced a short film, The Last Supper, which won an award at the Berlin Film Festival. She directed, produced and was cinematographer for the documentary Strip Notes. It aired on Channel 4 in the UK and on HBO and was about the research Hannah did for her role as a stripper in Dancing at the Blue Iguana. Hannah currently has several projects in post-production, including Shannon's Rainbow and A Closed Book.
She had long-term relationships with John F. Kennedy, Jr. and singer Jackson Browne. Music producer Lou Adler is married to Hannah's sister, Page.
Hannah is a strict vegan.
