Tuesday Weld Biography


Home > Actresses > W > Weld, Tuesday > Biography


Birth Name: Tuesday Weld
Born: 08/27/1943
Birth Place: New York City, New York, USA


Weld's tempestuous off-screen adventures made her fodder for the gossip columnists, but she went on to display a quirky, unique talent in several fine dramas, including "The Cincinnati Kid" (1966) and "Pretty Poison" (1968)--in which she suggested both innocence and evil as few performers had since the heyday of Louise Brooks. Her reputation fully rehabilitated, Weld carved a niche as a dependable lead in a number of fine films, from "Lord Love a Duck" (1966), "A Safe Place" (1971), with Orson Welles and Jack Nicholson, and "Play It as It Lays" (1972). Beginning with "Looking for Mr. Goodbar" (1977), which earned her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination, she began alternating second leads and character roles with leads in films like "Thief" (1981). She worked more in TV as the 80s progressed, but still performed well in features including "Once Upon a Time in America" (1984). By the 90s, she had all but abandoned acting, appearing in only two features to date, "Falling Down" (1993) and "Feeling Minnesota" (1996).
