Rebecca De Mornay was born on August 29th, 1959 in Santa Rosa, California with the birth name Rebecca Jane Pearch, born to former television host and disk jockey, Wally George.  Her parents divorced when she was still a young girl and her mother re-married a man by the name of Richard De Mornay who adopted Rebecca and raised her like his own daughter.  Unfortunately, he passed away unexpectedly and her mother decided to take Rebecca and relocate to Europe where Rebecca was raised in mostly England and Austria.  After she graduated from a German high school in the Swiss Alps, Rebecca decided to relocate to Los Angeles, California in pursuit of a career as an actress.
She began by studying the art at Lee Strasberg's Institute and was then given a chance to work an apprenticeship at Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope Film Studio.  In 1982 she had her film debut in, "One from the Heart" followed by roles in such features as, "Risky Business" (1983), "Runaway Train" (1985), "The Trip to Bountiful" (1985), "And God Created Women" (1988), "Backdraft" (1991), "The Hand that Rocks the Cradle" (1992) and "Guilty as Sin" (1993).    

Along with working as a film actress she also added a number of stage and television credits to her resume.  Some of her stage productions include, "Born Yesterday", "Marat/Sade" and "Closer".  On television, Mornay appeared in the television movies, "Getting Out" (1984), "An Inconvenient Woman" (1991), "The Shining" (1997) and "Night Ride Home" (1999).  She also made appearances on such television series as, "Boomtown" and "The Practice".
In the mid 90's, she also was given a chance to work on the other side of the industry as a producer.  She added such producing credits to her resume for the films, "Never Talk to Strangers" (1995), "The Winner" (1996) and "A Table for One" (1999).
Rebecca De Mornay has married twice throughout her lifetime.  Her first husband was Bruce Wagner whom she wed in 1989 and remained together with him until divorcing in 1990.  She then married Patrick O'Neal in 1995 and together they had two children before this marriage also came to an end in 2002.
