    Dianne Wiest is the oldest child and only daughter of an army pilot and a nurse. During her youth, Dianne was moved around a great deal due to her father's military career; he later went on to serve as dean of the School of Social Work at Louisiana State University. At sixteen, Dianne abandoned the study of ballet at the School of American Ballet in New York in favor of the theater. Eventually she entered the University of Maryland where she was a theater major, but later dropped out.
          During the mid to late seventies, Dianne honed her acting skills performing with the Arena Stage in D.C. in such productions as Whose Afraid Of Virgina Woolf?. For a time she toured with the American Shakespeare Company and went on to win the Obie, Clarence Derwent and Theater World Awards for Best Actress for her performance in the off-Broadway play The Art of Dining. 1980 marked her feature film debut with It's My Turn, followed by I'm Dancing as Fast as I Can, and the surprise hit Footloose in 1984. But it was 1985's The Purple Rose of Cairo that earned her wide exposure, including being listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1985", and kicked off an incredibly rich string of performances in five Woody Allen films, two of which earned her Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actress.
