If there is any actress unhappy with the way she handled her career, it’s Ione Skye. Sometime in 2010, the British-American actress divulged that she didn’t pay attention to her career as she should have done. Skye reportedly said she “never struck when the iron was hot.”
Obviously, Ione Skye thinks she ought to have accomplished more in her career. That’s understandable, as most of us can in a way or another, relate to that feeling of unfulfillment.
However, she’s not a loser in the field she chose as her vocation. While her filmography will easily prove that to be true, her number 84 position on VH1’s 2006 “100 Greatest Teen Stars” list emphasized that she has left her mark in the industry.
It’s on record that the British-American actress made her film debut with 1986’s “River’s Edge”. Lee is probably, best known for her role as Diane Court in the 1989 film “Say Anything”. Nevertheless, she gained much attention when she played the title character in “The Rachel Papers” (1986) and in the 2007 David Fincher film – “Zodiac”.
Her appearance in Harvey Danger’s song music video – “Sad Sweetheart Of The Rodeo” also brought her to spotlight just like her directing of the “Against Me!” (American punk rock band) music video did in 2016.
Apart from being an artiste, Ione Skye is equally an artist. She’s a painter and as well, a writer.
