Profile Bio Text
Suzy Amis (born January 5, 1962) is an American film actress and former model. Amis was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Advertised as "the face of the 1980s", one-time Ford model and Actors Studio graduate Amis made her film debut in Fandango (1985). While making the film, she met her future husband, actor Sam Robards (born 1961), the son of actor Jason Robards Jr. and actress Lauren Bacall, to whom she was married between 1985 and 1993. She followed Fandango with an off-Broadway appearance in Fresh Horses and next essayed an unprepossessing "goody-two-shoes" film role in The Big Town (1987). Despite having the least interesting assignment in that film, Suzy managed to steal scenes from on-screeen villainess Diane Lane. She further proved her acting mettle as the titular heroine of The Ballad of Little Jo (1993), portraying a young woman who passes herself off as a man to survive a harsh existence in the Old West. Unfortunately, although Amis earned a number of plaudits for her performance, the film all but disappeared at the box office.
Suzy turned up in lead and supporting roles in a number of varied films, including Plain Clothes (1988), Rocket Gibraltar (1988), Rich in Love (1993), Blown Away (1994, opposite Jeff Bridges), The Usual Suspects (1995) — which casts her as the film`s only substantial female character, opposite Gabriel Byrne and Kevin Spacey — and the movie blockbuster Titanic (1997) in which she played Lizzy Calvert, the granddaughter of Rose DeWitt Bukater (Gloria Stuart). That same year she starred opposite Tom Selleck in the western Last Stand at Sabre River. Suzy has been married to Canadian-born film director James Cameron since June 4, 2000 whom she met while filming Titanic and while he was still married to Actress Linda Hamilton. James and Suzy had an affair and later married. They have four children: Claire (born April 4, 2001), Quinn, and Elizabeth Rose (born December 29, 2006). She also has a son, Jasper, by ex-husband Sam Robards.
