Biography

Model-turned-actress Margaux Hemingway was the granddaughter of great American writer Ernest Hemingway. Amidst much hype, the 6' tall, willowy blonde made her screen debut as a model/rape victim in Lipstick (1976), which also starred her little sister, Mariel Hemingway. She went on to have a sporadic film career in such fare as Killer Fish (1979) and Killing Machine (1986). Afflicted by epilepsy, eating disorders, bouts of alcoholism, and drug addiction, Hemingway died alone in her home in Santa Monica, CA. Her body was discovered on July 1, 1996. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
