Born April 8, 1966, in Dallas, Robin Wright leveraged her good looks into a recurring role on the soap opera "Santa Barbara" that netted the young actress two Daytime Emmy nods and the chance to shift her talents to film.

After charming audiences as the titular heroine in director Rob Reiner's The Princess Bride (1987), Wright appeared in a mixed bag of successes and misfires, including State of Grace (1990), which paired her with Sean Penn. But it was her performance as the lifelong crush of Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump (1994) that caught the eye of Hollywood critics and garnered the actress her first Golden Globe nomination.

Since then, the versatile Wright has opted for a blend of mainstream and indie works, including She's So Lovely (1997), Hurlyburly (1998), Unbreakable (2000), Sorry, Haters (2005) and Moneyball (2011). Her later projects include the Netflix original series "House of Cards," opposite Kevin Spacey.
