Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Blond, strikingly beautiful young lead, whose debut, in 1983's Class had her exposing one breast in a comic melee. (She got to wear clothes, at least, for her supporting role in the following year's Dune.) Her subsequent output has been extremely variable, from good parts in Electric Dreams (1984), Creator (1985), and Candyman (1992) to forgettable leads in Fire With Fire (1986), Slamdance, Zombie High (both 1987), Hot to Trot (1988), and Highlander II: The Quickening (1991). Despite some strong (and often uninhibited) performances, particularly as the devious and insatiable Southern belle in Dennis Hopper's The Hot Spot (1990), the popular success her talent hints at has yet to materialize. She has fared better in some high-profile made-for-TV movies, including The Hearst and Davies Affair (1985, as Marion Davies), Long Gone (1987), Third Degree Burn (1989), Ironclads (1991), and A Murderous Affair: The Carolyn Warmus Story (1992). She was married briefly to director Danny Huston, in whose films Mr. North (1988) and Becoming Colette (1992) she had juicy supporting roles. Her brother is actor Michael Madsen, featured as Susan Sarandon's boyfriend in Thelma & Louise (1991), as well as in Reservoir Dogs (1992), Free Willy, Money for Nothing (both 1993), Wyatt Earp and The Getaway (both 1994).
