Deborah Ann "Debbie" Harry (born July 1, 1945) is an American singer-songwriter and actress, best known as the lead singer of the new wave and punk rock band Blondie. She recorded several number one singles with Blondie and is sometimes considered the first rapper to chart at number one in the United States as well, due to her work on "Rapture". She has also had success as a solo artist, and in the mid-1990s she recorded and performed with The Jazz Passengers. Her acting career spans over thirty film roles and numerous television appearances.

Biography

Deborah Harry est adoptée à l'âge de trois mois par Catherine et Richard Harry Smith, propriétaires d'une boutique de cadeaux à Hawthorne, dans le New Jersey. Elle suit des études à la Hawthorne High School et au Centenary College.

Elle s'installe à New York à la fin des années 1960 et travaille pendant un an comme secrétaire au bureau de new-yorkais de la BBC Radio. Elle est aussi serveuse au Max's Kansas City et dans un Dunkin' Donuts, danseuse à Union City, dans le New Jersey, et Playboy Bunny.

Sa carrière commence dans un groupe folk, The Wind in the Willows, avant qu'elle ne rejoigne un trio féminin, The Stilettos, au début des années 1970. Le groupe d'accompagnement inclut son petit ami, le guitariste Chris Stein, avec lequel elle formera Blondie au milieu des années 1970. Le nom du groupe viendrait des sifflets des hommes sur le passage de Debbie. Blondie se produit de manière régulière au Max's Kansas City et au CBGB's (elle découvre les Fleshtones) à New York avant de connaître un succès commercial international à la fin des années 1970 et au début des années 1980, en particulier avec les chansons Heart of Glass (1978) repris par Superbus et Call Me (1980).

Toujours en activité, Debbie Harry travaille en 2006 avec Moby et sort un tout nouvel album à l'automne 2007, Necessary Evil.

Elle joue également dans plusieurs films, comme Vidéodrome de David Cronenberg ou Hairspray de John Waters.

Fin 2010, elle sort un tout nouvel album de Blondie intitulé Panic of Girls.

En 2013, elle chante avec Étienne Daho en duo sur L'Étrangère, une chanson de l'album Les Chansons de l'innocence retrouvée.

Ann (Sarah Polley) is a hard-working 23-year-old mother with two small daughters, an unemployed husband (Scott Speedman), a mother (Deborah Harry) who sees her life as a failure, and a jailed father whom she has not seen in ten years. Her life changes dramatically when, during a medical checkup following a collapse, she is diagnosed with metastatic ovarian cancer and told she has only two months to live. Deciding not to tell anyone of her condition, using the cover of anemia, Ann makes a list of things to do before she dies. She decides to change her hair, record birthday messages for the girls for every year until they're 18, and tries to set up her husband with another woman. Feeling a longing to experience a life that was never available to her, she seeks out a man to experience how it feels to be in a sexual relationship with someone other than her husband. Her experiment ends up taking an emotional toll when she meets with a man named Lee, who ends up madly in love with her and is left heartbroken when Ann breaks up. He meets with her one last time and says that he will do anything to make her happy, taking care of her daughters and even finding her husband a job. She ends their relationship and never tells him that she is dying. At the end of the film Ann records a message to her husband telling him that she loves him and another one to Lee telling him the same. She then leaves all tapes she has recorded with her doctor asking him to deliver them after her death.

Local Sheriff Freddy Heflin (Sylvester Stallone) is secretly in love with Liz Randone (Annabella Sciorra), whose life he once saved after a car accident.
