REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

Carrie Preston Biography

Carrie Preston's breakout role as Miranda on the Broadway production of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" led to roles in major television series such as "Lost" and "Desperate Housewives," along with acclaimed 2008 films such as Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona," the Oscar-nominated "Transamerica" and the Daisy 3 Pictures (her production company) film "Ready? ok!"

Born and raised in Macon, Georgia, where her mother was an artist and art therapist and her dad a geo-technical engineer, Preston discovered her true calling in life was in performing arts. At the age of 12, she became the impresario of her own front-yard theater company as producer, writer, casting director, costumer, director, and of course, actress. Preston later obtained a Bachelor's degree from the University of Evansville followed with an acting diploma from the prestigious Juilliard School.

Her first big break after Juilliard came when she starred as Miranda in the Broadway production of Shakespeare's "The Tempest," opposite Patrick Stewart. She soon ventured to Los Angeles to appear in such feature films as "My Best Friend's Wedding" (as a sassy Southern bridesmaid to star Cameron Diaz) and "Mercury Rising" (starring Bruce Willis and Alee Baldwin).

She also appeared as Idalyn Greaves in the Robert Redford directed film "The Legend Of Bagger Vance'"with Will Smith and Charlize Theron. She played Barbara in "The Stepford Wives" with Nicole Kidman and also appeared in "Lovely By Surprise."

With her original roots in theatre, Preston completed a starring role as Honey in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis (again with Patrick Stewart and Mercedes Ruehl) Preston's other stage credits include "Antony & Cleopatra" with Vanessa Redgrave, "She Stoops to Conquer," and "Hamlet."

After forming the production company Daisy 3 Pictures with Mark Holmes and James Vasquez, Preston directed the films "29th and Gay," "Feet of clay" and 2008's "Ready? ok!"

When not working, she does yoga and almost anything outdoors. She also maintains an extensive music collection, including many vintage vinyl records.
