Angela Marie Bettis is an American actress, film producer and director best known for her lead role in the horror film May.
Bettis was born in Austin, Texas to Mary Lynn and Richard Joseph Bettis and graduated from Westlake High School. Her debut role was a lead in the romantic tragedy, Sparrow, directed by Franco Zeffirelli, at the age of eighteen. After that film she attended The American Musical and Dramatic Academy. She later went on to star in a movie called The Last Best Sunday, before supporting Wynnoa Ryder in Girl Interrupted and Kim Basinger in Bless the Child.
Bettis is most famous for her work in independent horror movies, and especially her working relationship with writer/director Lucky McKee. Her title role in McKee's 2002 gem May won her something of a cult following. Since then, she has appeared in McKee's Masters of Horror episode, Sick Girl, and provided a voice-over for his film The Woods. In 2006, their May roles reversed, when McKee acted for Bettis in her directorial debut, Roman.
Bettis also starred as Carrie White in Carrie, a made-for-TV remake of Brian de Palma's 1976 classic, and headlined Tobe Hooper's Toolbox Murders, an in-name-only remake of an obscure 1970s horror film. Next up is crime thriller Scar.
In addition, Bettis has produced many short films through her production company, MoFreek, which she co-owns with her husband, Kevin Ford.
