Possessing a dark and delicate beauty enhanced by an alluringly hypnotic pair of large and deeply expressive eyes, actress Joanna Going gained notice early on with appearances in such soap operas as Another World and the early-'90s revival of Dark Shadows. Though her early work would consist mostly of soap operas and made-for television features, the mid-'90s found Going making a slow but steady transition into feature film territory. A Washington, D.C., native who was raised in Newport, RI, Going was the oldest of six siblings and graduated from Rogers High School in 1981. Later moving on to Emerson College, Going would subsequently study acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. Her television debut in Search for Tomorrow followed shortly thereafter, and by 1987 Going was entering into a two-year stint on the long-running soap opera Another World. Remaining on the small screen for Dark Shadows immediately following Another World, Going made her feature debut in 1994's Wyatt Earp. A touching performance in the little-seen 1996 feature Eden ensured that Going would continue to climb the credits, and subsequent roles in Keys to Tulsa and Inventing the Abbots (both 1997) continued to find Going in good company. Though appearances in Still Breathing (1997) and Cupid & Cate (2000) would go largely unseen, Going would later maintain visibility opposite Helen Mirren in the television series Georgetown. In 2003 Going could be spotted in the dramatic thriller The Runaway Jury (2003).
