Keynote Speaker: Christina Ricci
Golden Globe®, SAG®, and Emmy® nominee Christina Ricci is one of Hollywood's most respected actors.
The actress's performance at age seven in a school Christmas play caught the attention of a local theatre critic, who suggested to her parents that she consider an acting career. She made her professional acting debut just one short year later in Mermaids. As a child actor, Ricci won over audiences and critics alike with her winning portrayal in movies such as The Addams Family, Now and Then and Casper.
Ricci’s career continued to take off as she came into adulthood, starring not only in movies such as The Ice Storm and The Opposite of Sex, but capturing the attention of television audiences as well with original series such as Z:The Beginning of Everything, The Lizzie Borden Chronicles and more recently Yellowjackets.
As a guest star on various hit shows such Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Wife and Ally McBeal combined with her Broadway appearance in Time Stands Still, Ricci can literally do it all and has been a trailblazer in Hollywood through her on-camera presence while advocating to end family violence. We are honored she has chosen to support The Family Place's mission to empower survivors and provide resources to individuals and families in need.
You can look forward to seeing Ricci in Tim Burton’s upcoming show “Wednesday” which will release with Netflix later this year.
