Meg Tilly

One of the most promising actresses of the 1980s, Academy Award-nominated actress Meg Tilly won the hearts and minds of critics with her sensitive portrayals in such films as "The Big Chill" (1983) and "Agnes of God" (1985). The younger sister of flamboyant actress Jennifer Tilly, Meg Tilly semi-retired from acting in the mid 1990s to focus on other creative endeavors; most notably, her writing. Tilly's first novel, a well-received compilation of vignettes entitled Singing Songs, was published in 1994, followed by the tragically autobiographical, Gemma, in 2006.
