Marcia Gay Harden stars as Claire Maddox on FX Network's "Damages." Claire Maddox is Walter Kendrick's chief adviser. A legal bulldog who thrives on confrontation, she's a worthy adversary for Patty Hewes. But Maddox's devotion to Kendrick is challenged as she's drawn deeper and deeper into the web of his conspiracy.

Award-winning Marcia Gay Harden has forged a remarkable body of work, always staying true to her chameleon style of "becoming the character." Her character portraits have been described by critics as "searing," "heartbreaking," "inventive," "pure and profane simultaneously," "astonishing," "authentic," and "sensuous." From the glamorous Ava Gardner in "Sinatra," to the artist Lee Krasner in "Pollock" (for which she won best supporting actress Oscar), to the down and out Cecelia in "Mystic River" (another Academy Award nomination) Harden has created a signature style based in character transformation. Harden's versatility and wide-range have been praised in such films as "Millers Crossing," "The First Wives Club," "Meet Joe Black," "Mona Lisa Smile," "The Hoax," and "Used People."

Harden's most recent works include "Canvas," "Rails and Ties," Stephen King's "The Mist" (for which she won a Saturn Award) and Sean Penn's "Into the Wild." Harden can also be seen in "Home for Christmas" with Peter O'Toole and the comedy "The Lonely Maiden" with William H. Macy, Morgan Freeman, and Christopher Walken.

Harden has chosen a life away from mainstream Hollywood, crossing between independent and studio films, and television and theatre. Harden won a Tony nomination for Tony Kushner's "Angels in America" (for which she won the Drama Desk and Theatre World Awards), an Emmy nomination for her guest appearance on "Law and Order: SVU," and an Independent Spirit Award nomination for "American Gun."

Harden graduated from the University of Texas with a B.A. in Theatre and an M.F.A from the Graduate Acting program at New York University. Harden resides in Harlem with her husband and three children.
