Kim Dickens stars in "Treme" on HBO as Janette Desautel.

Born in Hunsville, Alabama, Kim Dickens attended Vanderbilt University, heading to New York City upon graduating to study at the prestigious Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, graduating from The American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

While in New York, Dickens began landing supporting roles in theater and independent films; her debut was Alan Taylor's 1995 indie-comedy hit "Palookaville." From there, she appeared as the female lead in Keifer Sutherland's feature directorial debut, "Truth or Consequences, N.M." She starred opposite Bruce Willis in the Harold Becker-directed thriller "Mercury Rising," then alongside Ben Stiller and Ben Pullman in the Jake Kasdan-helmed cult-hit comedy "Zero Effect." In 2000 she co-starred with Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth Shue in the Paul Verhoeven summer blockbuster "Hollow Man."

Further acclaim came in the summer of 2001, when she played an up-and-coming rock singer spiraling out of control in Allison Anders' semi-autobiographical "Things Behind the Sun." This performance garnered Dickens an Independent Spirit Award nomination for best female lead. 2003 found Dickens busy on both the big screen and small, starting with a prime role in Showtime's miniseries "Out of Order," opposite Eric Stoltz, Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy. Next was a small yet well-received role in the Academy Award-nominated "The House of Sand and Fog."



From 2004-2005, Dickens portrayed Joanie Stubbs, the Madame of the Bella Union in HBO's acclaimed series "Deadwood." Other credits include Arne Glimcher's "The White River Kid" with Antonio Banderas, Sam Raimi's "The Gift," with Cate Blanchett and Jason Reitman's hit comedy "Thank You for Smoking," starring Aaron Eckhart.

Dickens' most recent work includes the film "The Blind Side," starring Sandra Bullock, as well as appearances on hit series "Lost," "Friday Night Lights" and "FlashForward." She also appeared in the dramatic thriller "Red," which screened at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.

Dickens lives in both Los Angeles and New York City.
