Penelope Ann Miller (born Penelope Andrea Miller; January 13, 1964), sometimes credited as Penelope Miller, is an American actress. She began her career on Broadway, and starred in several major Hollywood films, particularly in the early 1990s, and has continued to appear in supporting roles in both film and television. Miller was born in Los Angeles, the middle daughter of Beatrice (nee Ammidown), a costume designer, publicist, and journalist, and Mark Miller, a television actor and producer. Her mother was Aristotle Onassis's god-daughter and an editor of Harper's Bazaar. She has an older sister, Marisa Miller, who is also a film actress, and a younger sister, Savannah Miller, who is a social worker. Miller graduated from high school in Los Angeles, then moved (aged 18) to New York City to study theatre. Her Broadway theatre break came in 1985 when she was cast in the lead (opposite Matthew Broderick) in the Neil Simon play Biloxi Blues.
