Who is Kyra Minturn Sedgwick?[1] [2]She is a Golden Globe Award-winning American actress. In 2007, Sedgwick won Best Actress for lead role in a dramatic TV series at the Golden Globes for her role in The Closer.

Sedgwick was born August 19, 1965 in New York City, the daughter of Patricia (née Rosenwald), a speech teacher and educational/family therapist, and Henry Dwight Sedgwick V, a venture capitalist.[1][3][4] On her father's side, she is a descendant of Judge Theodore Sedgwick; Endicott Peabody, the founder of the Groton School; William Ellery, signer of the Declaration of Independence; the Reverend John Lathrop; and Governor Thomas Dudley; as well as first cousin once removed of Edie Sedgwick, a star of Andy Warhol's early films, niece of the writer John Sedgwick, sister of actor Robert Sedgwick and half-sister of jazz guitarist Mike Stern.[5] Her parents separated when she was three and divorced when she was six; her mother subsequently re-married to Ben Heller, an art dealer.[6][1] Sedgwick's father was Episcopalian of English heritage, and her mother was Jewish. Sedgwick identifies her family and herself as Jewish;[7][8] A 1996 interview referred to her as "an all-American Jewish WASP actress", but Sedgwick said in the article that she and her family do not participate in any specific religious activities for any faith except for attending some Passover seders.[9] Sedgwick graduated from the Friends Seminary and attended Sarah Lawrence College.[1] She transferred from Sarah Lawrence to the University of Southern California, graduating with a theater degree.


Sedgwick made her debut on the television soap opera Another World at the age of sixteen. During the 1990s, she appeared in several Hollywood movies, such as Something to Talk About (1995) and Phenomenon, in which she played the love interest of John Travolta's character.[6] She starred in the Emmy Award-winning 1992 made-for-TV film Miss Rose White as a Jewish immigrant who comes to terms with her ethnicity.[10] She played the part of Stella Peck in the 2007 film, The Game Plan.
As of 2005[update], Sedgwick stars in the television series, The Closer, for which she receives roughly US $300,000 per episode.[11] On January 15, 2007, she received a Golden Globe award for her performance as lead actress in that series. She also has been nominated for several awards for that role.


Sedgwick married Kevin Bacon on September 4, 1988. They have two children, Travis Sedgwick Bacon (born June 23, 1989) and Sosie Ruth Bacon (born March 15, 1992).[12] She is also the aunt of R&B/pop singer, George Nozuka and his younger singer/songwriter brother, Justin Nozuka.
