Amy_Irving’s Biography

Amy is of Jewish origin, her father Jules Irving born in Israel, was a theater director and his mother Priscilla Pointer, an actress, of English, French and also Jewish roots. Jules was the artistic director of the Lincoln Center Theater Repertory from 1965-1972. Irving spent three years in England, where he received professional training at the London Academy. He also studied at the High School of Music and Art (New York, NY) and American Conservatory Theater (San Francisco, CA).

His first television appearances include: The Rookies (1975), Police Woman (1975), Happy Days (1975), I’m a Fool (1976), James Dean (1976), James Michener’s Dynasty (where Harrison also appears) Ford) (1976), Panache (1976) and The Three Musketeers (1976).

Irving met Brian De Palma at the Star Wars audition. She had never heard of him before. When he read Carrie’s script, he did not like it: “But I did not know that he [Brian] could do magic.” When I saw the movie, I liked it, I knew the day I met him that he would be in Carrie, George George Lucas was very shy and When he was doing the interviews, I had just left the hospital, I was at rest for six weeks and had not gone to any auditions at that time. ” Priscilla Pointer played her mother. In addition to her mother, she also coincided with William Katt, who played her boyfriend in this film. Katt was her boyfriend in real life a year before she auditioned for Carrie. In relation to his character Sue Snell, he said in 1977: “Some people think I was the bad one, which bothered me, that does not make sense, I read some criticisms saying that I was the bad one. Even when we were at the Avoriaz Festival, the jury asked me “Are you the good one or the bad one?” I could not believe it. “

At that time I was already living with Steven Spielberg: “It was not a blind date, Brian sent me to the Close Encounters of the Third Kind set to meet him, I would like to work with Steven but, for now, I want to work alone. I do not want to be known as “Steven Spielberg’s girlfriend.” First I want to be Amy Irving, I grew up as Jules Irving’s daughter, and every time I went to the theater, it was like “Oh, she’s Jules Irving’s daughter.” Steven and I’m very independent, as far as I’m concerned, we’ve been together for a year and a half, and it’s wonderful, but I do not want any kind of tension. “

In 1978 he returned to work with De Palma in the film, The Fury, his first film as a protagonist. From this film, Irving says: “I do not think it was as good a movie as Carrie was.” Irving was going to appear in the John Milius film The Great Wednesday. He auditioned for this movie, but in the end Frank Yablans told him he loved her in Brian De Palma’s movie. After The Fury, he would appear in Voices (1979), in which he plays Rosemarie Lemon, a deaf teacher who falls in love with Drew Rothman, an aspiring singer.

In 1979 Honeysuckle Rose is shot, in which Willie Nelson plays Buck Bonham, a married singer (Dyan Cannon) who has a son (Joey Floyd). An ambitious guitarist (Amy Irving) seduces him and they become lovers. According to Peter Biskind, the reason why Irving ended Spielberg was that she had fallen in love with Nelson.

In 1980 he starred opposite Richard Dreyfuss in the dramatic film The Competition. Dreyfuss plays Paul Dietrich and Irving to Heidi Joan Schoonover. It is about the romance between two piano virtuosos, who fall in love during a competition. For Dietrich it is the last chance, he feels that if he does not win this competition he should abandon his dream of being a concert player. In this film you can admire the skill of the actress in the piano, although she insists that everything was the product of the essay.

In 1983 appears in Yentl, the first film directed by Barbra Streisand. “It was Barbra’s dream, she was very charming at work, very clear, very funny,” Irving recalls. One of the most famous scenes is the seduction of Hadass: “We never really kissed each other.” When it was time to shoot, [Barbra] said “We’re going to make some shots with the kiss and others without it.” After the first shot of the kiss, it was obvious that no more shots were needed. ” Yentl falls in love with his yeshiva partner, played by Mandy Patinkin, while he looks at Hadass, a girl educated to serve and be self-sacrificing, played by Irving. The family of Hadass forbids him to marry Avigdor, he persuades his friend Yentl to marry her. To prepare for the role of Hadass, Streisand gave Amy some books: “It was about how to make kosher food, how to prepare fish, how to prepare bread, Barbra wanted me to know what Hadass knew.” For this film Irving was nominated for the Oscars of April 9, 1984.

The Far Pavilions is a 1984 mini-series (six hours) shot in Jaipur, India. Irving plays an Indian princess. She received riding lessons, “now I walk as a princess and ride a horse as a cowboy”. While Irving was filming this series (1983), he learned that Spielberg was looking for locations in India for the sequel to In Search of the Lost Ark. She surprised him at the airport, months later they resumed their relationship. That same year (1984), appears with Dudley Moore in the comedy Micki and Maude, in which Dudley plays an unfaithful husband who gets a girl pregnant [Amy Irving] and coincidentally his wife [Ann Reinking] also gets pregnant.

On her birthday (September 10) she became pregnant with her first child, Max Samuel. Steven and Amy were married on November 27, 1985 in Santa Fe, going to live with Spielberg at their home in Coldwater Canyon. In 1986 he made Anastasia: The Mystery of Anna for television, followed by Rumpelstiltskin (1987) and Crossing Delancey (1988), which was an unforeseen success. In 1989 he divorced Spielberg and met director Bruno Barreto during the filming of Show of Force with whom he started a romance, becoming pregnant that same year. At the beginning of 1990 his second son, Gabriel, was born. That year, while Kathleen Turner voiced Jessica Rabbit, Amy uses her voice to sing in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, directed by Robert Zemeckis, she clarifies: “That was not a job, Bob Zemeckis needed someone to do background so that the animators will animate the song, I did it as a favor for Bob, I was not paid for it. “

She was an executive producer in the film Carried Away, “It was something Bruno and I wanted to do together, it was like a baby we created, it took us five years to make it.” In this film the actress shows a long nude scene with Dennis Hopper: “I think it’s an extraordinary film, so it’s the best thing I’ve ever done”.
