Heather Matarazzo

Heather Matarazzo has almost 3 decades of award-winning and critically-acclaimed performances in both major studio film as well as independent cinema. Her brilliant work at age 11 as the lead in Todd Solondz' "Welcome to the Dollhouse" (winner of the Grand Jury Award at Sundance and prizes from the Berlin Film Festival and The National Board of Review) brought Heather international recognition as one of the finest actors of her generation. She garnered universal raves as well as the Independent Spirit Award for Best Debut Performance.

She appeared in a succession of studio films beginning with Taylor Hackford's "The Devil's Advocate" opposite Keanu Reeves, "54" with Ryan Phillippe, and Wes Craven's horror hit "Scream 3." She co-starred with Anne Hathaway in Garry Marshall' s comedy hits, "The Princess Diaries" and "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement" and then did an about face blowing critics away with her performance in the indie cult fave, "Saved!"

Her extensive TV work includes guest starring roles on "ER," "Strangers with Candy," "Life on Mars" and "Law and Order," "The L Word," and an exceptional performance in Guy Ferland's ABC telefilm "Our Guys: Outrage at Glen Ridge," as well as a heart wrenching episode arch on "Greys Anatomy."

Ms. Matarazzo can soon be seen starring in the indie comedy, “Stuck”, with Joel McHale, Kate Flannery and Amir Talai (writers, Heather Turman and David Mickel) as well as her recent appearance
in Gus Van Sant’s “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot”. Making the transition behind the camera, Heather and her producing partner, Heather Turman, launched their production company, "Life Death Life," earlier this year. They have several projects in development. Ms. Matarazzo will be directing an upcoming episode of Chance Calloway’s “Pretty Dudes”, this fall.
