Ione Skye Biography

Home > Actresses > S > Skye, Ione > Biography

Birth Name: Ione Skye
Born: 09/04/1970
Birth Place: Hertfordshire, England, GB

In 1992, Skye married musician-actor Adam Horovitz, the son of playwright-director Israel Horovitz. The pair appeared together in small roles in "CITYSCRAPES los angeles" (lensed in 1994; shown at festivals in 1996) but have since divorced. Meanwhile, Skye made appearances on the small screen. She made her television debut as the Emperor's younger sister in the miniseries "Napoleon and Josephine: A Love Story" (ABC, 1987), was a regular on the short-lived medieval adventure "Covington Cross" (ABC, 1992) and co-starred in the 1994 Showtime remake of the 50s drama "Girls in Prison." After portraying a newlywed forced to deal with a possessive and controlling mother-in-law in the TV movie "The Perfect Mother" (CBS, 1997), Skye went back to film, playing the ex-girlfriend of a young man (Rick Stear) whose financial problems and descent into alcoholism ended their relationship in the independently released "Went to Coney Island on a Mission from God Be Back by Five" (1998).

Skye made a small appearance in the little-seen and critically panned "But I'm a Cheerleader" (2000), a teen black comedy about a seemingly perfect high school student (Natasha Lyonne) who is sent to a rehabilitation camp because her parents think she's a lesbian. She then starred in an episode of the revamped "Twilight Zone" (UPN, 2002-2003) as a woman whose brush with death from a speeding car unravels her once happy life. After playing Blythe Danner's daughter in the made-for-TV movie "Back When We Were Grownups" (CBS, 2004), Skye went to bat in "Fever Pitch" (2005) as the friend of a corporate executive (Drew Barrymore) whose developing relationship with a rabid Boston Red Sox fan (Jimmy Fallon) begins to deteriorate when the season begins.
