We Love Laura Linney

Big C Season Finale Tonight

BeansTalk is loving Showtime's series "The Big C," which has its season finale today.

A few fun facts about star Laura Linney: She graduated from Brown University in 1986 and Julliard in 1990.

And her co-stars must love working with her.

She has played the wife of Gabriel Byrne in three films: Jindabyne (2006), P.S. (2004), and A Simple Twist of Fate (1994).

She's played Liam Neeson's wife in Kinsey (2004) and The Other Man (2008) and starred with him in Love Actually (2003). Neeson also guest starred on "The Big C."

She's played opposite Richard Gere in both Primal Fear (1996) and Mothman Prophecies (2002), and Mark Ruffalo's sister in 2000's You Can Count On Me, and will star opposite him in the upcoming Sympathy for Delicious (Ruffalo also directs).

In "real life" she was married to David Adkins from 1995 to 2000. Last year she married Marc Schauer.
