Short biography of Jennifer Connelly

Jennifer Connelly also known by her nickname Jenny C was born in 12 December 1970 in Catskill Mountains, New York, USA. She started her career as a child model and went on to become a movie star. She began appearing in newspaper and magazine ads (among them Seventeen magazine), and soon moved on to television commercials. She appeared on the cover of Seventeen and Muppet Magazine and landed her first lead role in 1985 with the movie Phenomena, a film about a teenage girl with psychic power.

Her next role after that was an episode of the British horror anthology TV series Tales of the Unexpected (1979) in 1984. After Leones movie, horror master Dario Argento signed her to play her first starring role in his thriller Phenomena. She enrolled at Yale, and then transferred two years later to Stanford. She trained in classical theater and improvisation, studying with the late drama coach Roy London, Howard Fine, and Harold Guskin.

The late 1980s saw her starring in a hit and three lesser seen films.
Amongst the latter was her roles in Ballet (1989), as a ballerina and in Some Girls (1988), where she played a self-absorbed college freshman.
The hit was Labyrinth (1986), released in 1986. Jennifer got the job after a nationwide talent search for the lead in this fantasy directed by
Jim Henson and produced by George Lucas. Her career entered in a calm phase after those films, until Dennis Hopper, who was impressed after having seen her in Some Girls, cast Jennifer as an ingénue small-town girl in The Hot Spot (1990),
based upon the 1950s crime novel Hell Hath No Fury. It received mixed critical reviews, but it was not a box office success.
