Guinevere Turner biography (bio):
Guinevere Turner is an American actress, writer and director. She was born in Boston, Massachusetts. Amongst other recent films, she starred in the 1997 British BDSM/fetish comedy film Preaching to the Perverted as the New York dominatrix "Tanya Cheex".
Guinevere Turner and I Shot Andy Warhol director Mary Harron wrote the screenplay which ended up being selected for the film version of Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho. She has a brief cameo in the film, in which she delivers the in-joke, "I'm not a lesbian!". (Turner has publicly acknowledged her lesbianism.) This line is a further in-joke, as she references Sarah Lawrence College, from which she graduated.
Turner emerged on the scene with the groundbreaking film Go Fish, which she co-wrote and co-produced with her then-girlfriend, Rose Troche. Turner also starred in the film, portraying a young woman whose friends help her find a new girlfriend. Director Kevin Smith was a fan of the movie, particularly a scene in it wherein, in an imagined sequence, some of a character's friends chastise her for "selling out" and sleeping with a guy, and used it as an inspiration for his rather unusual take on a similar theme in his own film Chasing Amy. Turner has cameos in both Chasing Amy and Smith's later film Dogma; her name is used as that of Joey Lauren Adams' character in Smith's Mallrats.
A writer and story editor for the first two seasons of The L Word, Turner also made several memorable guest appearances on the show as Alice Pieszecki's screenwriter ex-girlfriend, Gabby. Recently Turner wrote the script for BloodRayne directed by Uwe Boll, and the script for The Notorious Bettie Page, with Mary Harron, who directed it.
