With her height, angular face and piercing stare, Anjelica Huston has carved herself a niche playing women who range from authoritative and only mildly intimidating, to awesome and terrifying evil queens and witches. This is the actress you call upon to play the ideal screen Morticia Addams, the quintessential Evil Stepmother, or anybody with the title of Grand High Witch.

Although she has a warmth if you care to look for it, as Wes Anderson has done recently in The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou and The Darjeeling Limited.

She happens to be the daughter of John Huston, and the granddaughter of Walter Huston. (Since both of them had gotten Oscars, when she won Best Supporting Actress for Prizzi's Honor she became the third generation of her family to get one.) Her brothers are Tony Huston and Danny Huston.
