JDB Actor Surprise: Kim Dickens

0000034486_20061021000251Watching tonight’s episode of FlashForward I was reminded of another great, underused actress.  Kim Dickens showed up tonight as the mysterious Kate who I hope we’ll see more of.  You might recognize Kim as Cassidy Phillips from Lost or Shelby Saracen from Friday Night Lights but I know and love her as Joanie Stubbs, the headmistress of the whore house oh Deadwood.  Joanie was a strong, independent character who cared for her girls and the people in the community.  She made out with Calamity Jane that one time and boy does she know how to wear a sweet hat.

Kim Dickens was born (1965) and raised in Alabama and has had a plethora of feathered haircuts that remind me of my mom.  She went to University in Tennessee for Communications and studied Drama in New York.

Trivia:   Her bio makes reference to how bad Hollowman was.
She received a 2007 SAG award for Deadwood – Outstanding Performance by and Ensemble in a Drama Series, specific, but highly deserved.
