Biography

Kim Dickens est née à Huntsville, Alabama, fille de Pam (Clark) Howell et Justin Dickens, un chanteur de country. Elle est diplômée du Lee High School de Huntsville et rejoint l'université Vanderbilt à Nashville, Tennessee, où elle obtient un « Bachelor of Arts » en communication. Kim Dickens part bientôt à New York City, où elle travaille comme serveuse, pour continuer ses études au Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute et être diplômée de l'American Academy of Dramatic Arts. À la fin des années 1990 elle part à Los Angeles.


Débuts et progression discrète (années 1990)
Elle débute à la télévision par des petits rôles dans des séries et téléfilms, avant de se concentrer sur le cinéma : elle joue dans le thriller indépendant La Dernière Cavale (1997), avec Kiefer Sutherland, puis seconde Bill Pullman et Ben Stiller pour la comédie noire La Méthode zéro (1998), puis tient un petit rôle dans la romance De grandes espérances, porté par Gwyneth Paltrow et Ethan Hawke.

Elle parvient ensuite à jouer dans des grosses productions : le thriller d'action Code Mercury (1998) avec Bruce Willis, Hollow Man (2000), de Paul Verhoeven, Intuitions (2001), de Sam Raimi. La meme année, elle est pour la première fois tete d'affiche d'un film, le drame musical indépendant Things Behind the Sun.


Seconds rôles à la télévision (années 2000)
Finalement, c'est à la télévision qu'elle se fait connaitre durant les années 2000 : après avoir tenu le premier rôle féminin de l'éphémère série policière Big Apple, elle intègre le casting d'une mini-série dramatique, Out of Order, où elle a pour partenaires Felicity Huffman et Eric Stoltz. Puis le créateur de Big Apple lui confie le rôle de Joanie Stubb dans sa nouvelle série, un western appelé Deadwood. La série est cependant arrêtée soudainement par la chaîne HBO au bout de trois saisons, en 2004.

Parallèlement au tournage, l'actrice apparait dans plusieurs films : le thriller psychologique House of Sand and Fog (2003), le drame indépendant Goodnight, Joseph Parker (2004), la satire à succès Thank You for Smoking (2005) ou encore le drame anglais Wild Tigers I Have Known (2006). Mais par la suite, elle ne décroche que des roles mineurs, qui passent inaperçus.

Mais c'est à la télévision qu'elle conserve une visibilité médiatique grace à des petits roles récurrents : dans Lost : Les Disparus (2005), Numbers (2006), FlashForward (2009), Friday Night Lights (2008-2009).

Elle tente aussi de revenir comme actrice régulière d'une série. Mais le projet 12 Miles of Bad Road (2008) n'aboutit finalement pas, malgré six épisodes de tournés, puis l'épisode pilote de la série 1%, créé par Ryan Murphy, n'est pas commandé.


Percée médiatique (années 2010)


Finalement, elle rejoint en 2010 le casting d'une nouvelle série dramatique de HBO, Treme. La série, acclamée par la critique, va durer quatre saisons et 38 épisodes diffusés jusqu'en 2013. elle tourne aussitôt le pilote d'une nouvelle série policière, Second Sight, dont elle partagerait l'affiche avec Jason Lee, mais le projet n'est pas commandé. elle accepte donc un role récurrent dans la nouvelle saison de la série à succès Sons of Anarchy.

Elle garde un pied dans le cinéma en tournant sous la direction de David Fincher pour le thriller psychologique Gone Girl (2014) puis de Tim Burton pour le conte familial Miss Peregrine et les Enfants particuliers (2016). Fincher lui confie un role récurrent dans la troisième saison de sa série politique House of Cards.

Mais en 2015, elle décroche le premier rôle féminin, celui de Madison Clark, d'une nouvelle série fantastique très attendue, Fear the Walking Dead. elle se contente donc d'apparaitre dans deux épisodes de la quatrième saison (diffusée en 2016) de House of Cards, et ne reviendra que pour un ultime épisode en saison 5 (dévoilée en 2017).

L'année 2019 débute avec la sortie d'un téléfilm concluant la série Deadwood, quinze ans après la diffusion du dernier épisode.

Nick Naylor is a handsome, smooth-talking tobacco lobbyist and the vice-president of a tobacco lobby called the "Academy of Tobacco Studies", which for 15 years has been "researching" the link between tobacco smoking and lung cancer. They claim that their research—funded primarily by tobacco companies—has found no definitive evidence of any linkage. Naylor's job consists mainly of reporting the questionable research of the "Academy" to the public and defending Big Tobacco on television programs by questioning opposing health claims and advocating personal choice. Naylor and his friends, firearm lobbyist Bobby Jay Bliss and alcohol lobbyist Polly Bailey, meet every week and jokingly call themselves the "Merchants of Death" or "The MOD Squad".
