Mary Louise Parker was born in Fort Jackson, South Carolina. Her mother was Swedish and her father was a judge and served in the U.S. Army. They were stationed in Thailand where she attended the International School Bangkok. Parker majored in drama at the North Carolina School of the Arts. She then got her start in a bit part on the soap opera Ryan’s Hope. In the late 1980s, Parker moved to New York, where she got a job measuring feet at ECCO. After a few minor roles, she made her Broadway debut in a 1990 production of Craig LucasPrelude to a Kiss, playing the lead role of Rita. She won the Clarence Derwent Award for her performance and was nominated for a Tony Award. Parker also briefly dated her co-star Timothy Hutton during this time.

In 2005, Parker took on the lead role in the television series Weeds, a Showtime comedy-drama. Parker’s character, Nancy Botwin, is a suburban mother who, following the death of her husband, decides to sell marijuana to make money, while also attempting to maintain her community reputation. She stars alongside Kevin Nealon, Elizabeth Perkins, and her Angels in America co-star Justin Kirk. The show is currently in its fifth season, and has been confirmed to return for at least one more season for 2010.

In November 2005, Parker was honored with an exhibition of her career at Boston University, where memorabilia from her career were donated to the University’s library. Parker received the 2006 Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy, given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, for her lead role in Weeds. In that category, she defeated the four leads of Desperate Housewives. She dedicated the award to the late John Spencer, best known for his work as Leo McGarry on The West Wing. After receiving the award, Parker stated: “I’m really in favor of legalizing marijuana. I don’t think it’s that controversial.”

On January 7, 2004, Parker gave birth to her first child, William Atticus Parker. The boy’s father is actor Billy Crudup, whom Parker met on set when they co-starred in a 1996 revival of the William Inge play Bus Stop. After nearly eight years together, the couple split when the actress was seven months pregnant. Shortly after, Crudup openly admitted that he was dating actress Claire Danes, whom he met on the set of Stage Beauty. Crudup denies the rumor that the breakup was caused by Danes.
