Criminal Minds Wiki

Mimi Kennedy (born Mary Claire Kennedy) is an American actress, author, and activist.


Born on September 25, 1963, in Rochester, New York, to Nancy Helen and David Gerald Kennedy, Kennedy's birth name was Mary Claire Kennedy. She began her acting career in theater, appearing in Spider Web when she was twelve years old. She graduated from Our Lady of Mercy High School and Smith College. Her theater credits also included her work in both the national tour and the original Broadway production of Grease. Kennedy also made frequent TV appearances following her leading role on the critically-acclaimed series 3 Girls 3. She went on to star in Homefront, for which she earned an American Television Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She has also worked behind the cameras as story editor for Knots Landing. Kennedy has costarred in a number of made-for-TV films and miniseries, including Robert Kennedy & His Times, Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color: Mr. Boogedy (#30.11), and Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color: Bride of Boogedy (#31.23), as well as the Peabody Award-winning adaptation of Beverly Cleary's The Mouse and the Motorcycle. In addition, Kennedy has appeared in feature films, with her credits including Buddy and Death Becomes Her.

In her personal life, Kennedy is involved in progressive activism and is the Chairperson of the Board for the Progressive Democrats of America. Her midlife memoir, Taken To The Stage: The Education of an Actress, was published by Smith&Kraus in 1996 and garnered praise from advice columnist Abigail Van Buren and playwright Wendy Wasserstein, who called it "one of the great theatrical memoirs". She is also a signatory to the 9/11 Truth Statement, a charter member of Artists United to Win Without War, and a leading supporter of Dennis Kucinich's antiwar presidential campaign in 2004. Kennedy has worked on human rights and environmental and labor issues. She and her husband, Larry Dilg, met while attending college, and they had two children, Cisco and Molly, together.
