From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Cherry Jones (born on November 21, 1956, in Paris, Tennessee) is an American actress. She is best known for her stage work, including her Tony Award-winning leading performances in Lincoln Center's 1995 production of The Heiress and John Patrick Shanley's play Doubt, which opened at the Walter Kerr Theatre in March of 2005. Other Broadway productions in which Jones has appeared include Nora Ephron's play Imaginary Friends (with Swoosie Kurtz); Angels in America: Millennium Approaches and Perestroika; and Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good, for which she earned her first Tony nomination in the role of Liz Morden.

In recent years, Jones has played some supporting roles in movies, including Hallie Flanagan in Cradle Will Rock, Edie Bailey in The Perfect Storm, Molly Star in Ocean's Twelve, and Officer Paski in Signs.

In 1995, when Jones accepted her first Tony she thanked her then-lover, architect Mary O'Connor. In 2005, when she accepted the Tony Award for Best Actress in a play for Doubt, she thanked "Laura Wingfield"-- a character in the revival of The Glass Menagerie played by Sarah Paulson.
