Patricia Davies Clarkson is an American actress. After having a dramatic education on the East Coast, Clarkson launched her acting career in 1985, and has worked steadily in both film and television. She won the Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in Six Feet Under, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in Pieces of April (2003).
Born December 29, 1959, her primary personality traits are represented by the Chinese Zodiac elemental animal sign, the Earth Pig. The Earth Pig may not be a dynamo like the Fire Pig, but it is a steady, reliable sort that doesn't suffer as much from the emotionalism of other Pigs. She is probably known for her patience and is perhaps among the most tolerant of all people. What she might lack in charisma, she more than make up for with her steadiness and calm persistence.
