Husky voiced, poker loving, and undeniably alluring in a "she might be able to kick my ass" kind of way, lovely Linda Fiorentino's first role was of the standard love-interest type in the teen romance Vision Quest (1985). That led to her skinsational first nude scene as a downtown artist in Martin Scorsese's Soho nightmare After Hours (1985) and then an equally revealing arthouse turn in Alan Rudolph's The Moderns (1988). Years of relatively low-key projects came next, few of which offered Linda an opportunity to let loose her raw, Philadelphia-bred sexuality. That changed—really changed—with Linda's inimitable turn as a cold-as-nails femme fatale in the neo-noir The Last Seduction (1994), highlighted by Linda's head-on encounter with addled dupe Peter Berg against a chain-link fence, followed a year later with a heaping helping of sizzling screen sex sans wardrobe in the sordid thriller Jade (1995).
