Robin Weigert (born July 7, 1969) is an American actress who portrayed Calamity Jane on HBO's Deadwood, and later reprised her role in Deadwood: The Movie.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Weigert was born in Washington, D.C., the daughter of Dionne Laufman and Berlin-born Wolfgang Oscar Weigert, a psychiatrist. She is Jewish. After graduating from Brandeis University in 1991, Weigert attended New York University, earning a Master of Fine Arts degree in the Graduate Acting Program at the Tisch School of the Arts. After a decade as a stage actress based in New York City, she moved to Los Angeles and has appeared in various films, television shows and mini-series.[1]

Weigert is best known for her much-lauded portrayal of the unkempt, cantankerous and foul-mouthed drunkard Calamity Jane in the HBO television series Deadwood, which ran from 2004 to 2006. In 2004, Weigert was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for the role. In 2006, she won Hollywood Life magazine's "Breakthrough of the Year" award.[1]

In 2010, it was announced that Weigert would be joining the cast of the FX drama Sons of Anarchy. She plays the motorcycle club's lawyer. As of 2014, she plays a recurring role on Chicago P.D. In 2017, she appeared on the HBO series Big Little Lies as Dr. Amanda Reisman, sharing scenes opposite Alexander Skarsgård and Nicole Kidman.[1]
