Biography

Patricia Arquette got her first acting role at age 17, appearing in the 1986 film Pretty Smart. She broke out in the same year's A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, where she held the starring role. She has since appeared in numerous films such as Wildflower, Ed Wood, Little Nicky and Holes.

Arquette only rarely branched out on television: her most notable TV role was in the NBC drama Medium, which she headlined, as psychic Allison DuBois. She won an Emmy for the role in 2005. She stayed with the series until its eventual cancellation in 2011, two years after the show moved to CBS.

Arquette was married to her Bringing Out The Dead co-star Nicholas Cage in 1999, but their marriage lasted only for less than a year. She then married actor Thomas Jane in 2006, but the two divorced four years later. The two have a daughter together.
