Actress Faye Dunaway is considered one of the greatest Hollywood legends of her generation. Her 50-year career in films and Broadway gained her international stardom, with three Golden Globes, an Oscar, an Emmy and a British Academy Film Award.
After attending the University of Florida to pursue a career in education, she transferred to Boston University's School of Fine and Applied Arts, where she earned a bachelor of fine arts. Dunaway accepted a role in the American National Theatre and Academy Production of “A Man for All Seasons,” and three years later won critical acclaim for her role in William Alfred’s “Hogan’s Goat.” Her television and film debuts followed shortly after.
Dunaway’s breakout role as Bonnie Parker in “Bonnie and Clyde” placed her among Hollywood A-listers. She continued to star in notable films such as “The Thomas Crown Affair,” “Little Big Man,” “Chinatown” and “Network,” which won her an Academy Award in 1976. Dunaway released her autobiography “Looking for Gatsby” in 1995 and in 1996 received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
After an eight-year hiatus from feature films, Dunaway returned to the big screen this year with roles in “Inconceivable,” “The Case for Christ” and “The Bye Bye Man.” In honor of the 50th anniversiary of “Bonnie and Clyde,” she presented at the 2017 Academy Awards alongside her former co-star Warren Beatty.
