Heche has been adept at comedy and drama, lead and supporting roles and big or small screens. After breaking out on Another World in the late 1980s — in a Daytime Emmy-winning dual role still revered by soap opera fans — she did supporting turns opposite A-list stars in such early-’90s features as I’ll Do Anything and Milk Money before landing a lead opposite Josh Charles in 1995’s Pie in the Sky.
Her career took off from there.
In just three years, Heche starred or had key roles in Walking and Talking (1996); Donnie Brasco, Volcano, I Know What You Did Last Summer and Wag the Dog (all 1997); and Six Days Seven Nights, Return to Paradise and Psycho (all 1998).
She also recurred on TV’s Ally McBeal (2001) and Everwood (2004-05) before starring as a smug NYC relationship expert in the 2006-08 ABC comedy Men in Trees. From there she co-starred in the 2009-11 HBO dramedy Hung, playing the ex-wife of a high school teacher and coach (Thomas Jane) who takes a side gig as a gigolo to her support their kids.
Numerous film and TV roles followed, and Heche most recently appeared in the OWN/ABC drama All Rise and wrapped a role in the human-trafficking telefilm Girl in Room 13.
