With her height, angular face and piercing stare, Anjelica Huston has carved herself a niche playing women who range from authoritative and only mildly intimidating, to awesome and terrifying evil queens and witches. This is the actress you call upon to play the ideal screen [[Film/TheAddamsFamily Morticia Addams]], the quintessential [[Film/EverAfter Evil Stepmother]], or anybody with the title of [[Film/TheWitches Grand High Witch]].
Although she has a warmth if you care to look for it, as Creator/WesAnderson has done recently in ''Film/TheRoyalTenenbaums'', ''Film/TheLifeAquaticWithSteveZissou'' and ''Film/TheDarjeelingLimited''.
She happens to be the daughter of Creator/JohnHuston, and the granddaughter of Creator/WalterHuston. (Since both of them had gotten Oscars, when she won Best Supporting Actress for ''Film/PrizzisHonor'' she became the third generation of her family to get one.) Her brothers are Creator/TonyHuston and Creator/DannyHuston.
