Most people know Felicity Huffman from the hit television drama Desperate Housewives, but despite earning her an Emmy and several Golden Globe nominations, it wasn’t the project that put her on Hollywood’s map. When Felicity was 20 years old, she made her first debut on stage and over the years caught attention of several casting agents, who helped her transition to TV and film. Huffman’s first major role was on comedy-drama series Sports Night in 1998, and a year later she shined alongside Tom Cruise and her husband William H. Macy in Magnolia (1999). Her biggest movie role still remains Transamerica (2005), in which she played a transgender woman. Felicity’s performance earned her an Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe award.
