Known for her raspy voice and quirky sensibilities, Lili Taylor was born Feb. 20, 1967, in Glencoe, Ill., and solidified her reputation as a relatable character actress with memorable "best friend" roles in Mystic Pizza (1988) and Say Anything (1989).

But mainstream leading-lady status eluded Taylor, so she opted for offbeat indie fare, most notably with a standout performance as a would-be feminist assassin in I Shot Andy Warhol (1996), which earned her special notice at the Sundance Film Festival.

On television, Taylor received an Emmy nod in 1998 for an appearance on "The X Files." A year later, she shared the big screen with Catherine Zeta-Jones in the remake of The Haunting and then reteamed with Chicago pal John Cusack for High Fidelity (2000). Taylor's subsequent work includes a recurring role on the HBO series "Six Feet Under" (2002-05) and the Netflix original series "Hemlock Grove" (2013).
