The daughter of Christopher Plummer (I) and Tammy Grimes, Amanda Plummer was born in New York City on March 23, 1957. Her breakthrough role came when she starred opposite Robin Williams (I) in The Fisher King (1991). However, Plummer may be best remembered for her work in the Quentin Tarantino classic Pulp Fiction (1994). Tarantino wrote the parts of two robbers who hold up a restaurant specifically for Plummer and her partner-in-screen-crime Tim Roth (I). Since that stand-out role, Plummer has continued to appear in a wide variety of films, including The Prophecy (1995), Freeway (1996), and My Life Without Me (2003).

In 1987, she received another Tony nomination as Best Actress (Play) for her role as Eliza Doolittle in a revival of 'George Bernard Shaw' (qv)'s "Pygmalion," opposite 'Peter O'Toole (I)' (qv)'s Henry Higgins.
  • Two of her first four roles were in films adapted from 'John Irving (I)' (qv) novels: _The World According to Garp (1982)_ (qv) and _The Hotel New Hampshire (1984)_ (qv).
