Making herself a well-respected actress in the early 90s with hit movies like ‘The Fly.’ ‘Beetlejuice,’ ‘ The Accidental Tourist,’ ‘ A League of Their Own’ and her most memorable appearance in the 1991 critically acclaimed film ‘Thelma & Louise.’ Davis had a promising career.
Standing at an astounding six feet, Davis initially worked as a model after graduating from college in the early 1980’s. After a few years of appearing in photo shoots and the like, she eventually landed a role in the comedy film, Tootsie in 1982it was also her debut on the big screen. Some of her other early projects as an actress include Knight Rider (1983), Buffalo Bill (1983), Fantasy Island (1984) and Riptide (1984).
