Anne Celeste Heche was born in Aurora, Ohio on May 25, 1969, as the youngest of five children to Donald “Don” Joe Heche and Nancy Heche. Throughout her childhood, the Heche family lived in several towns throughout Ohio, including Cleveland and Akron suburbs.
Heche’s parents were conservative Christians, and she grew up in a very religious setting, which she later compared to being “raised in a cult.”
What made Anne Heche famous?
Anne Celeste Heche was a screenwriter, director, and actor from the United States. She rose to prominence as Vicky Hudson and Marley Love in the soap opera Another World (1964), for which she received a Daytime Emmy Award and two Soap Opera Digest Awards.
Heche had finished filming many films that were still in post-production at the time of her death in August 2022, and in which she would feature posthumously. Girl in Room 13 was one of these films, which aired as part of Lifetime’s “Ripped from the Headlines” film series.
In a January 2018 interview with Theo Von and Matthew Cole Weiss on the podcast Allegedly, Heche said that Harvey Weinstein had exposed himself to her and demanded oral sex, and that she had been sacked from an unidentified Miramax picture in reprisal for refusing Weinstein’s overtures.
