Winona Laura Horowitz (born October 29, 1971), known professionally as Winona Ryder, is an American actress who played Call in the 1997 film Alien Resurrection. Other notable films Ryder has appeared in include Beetlejuice (1988), Edward Scissorhands (1990) and A Scanner Darkly (2006).
Ryder has been nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Actress for Little Women, Best Supporting Actress for The Age of Innocence) and has won a Golden Globe. For her role in Alien Resurrection, she was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress. Ryder suffers from an acute fear of drowning, owing to a traumatic near-drowning she endured at the age of 12, and her condition meant many of the underwater shots in Alien Resurrection had to be reshot multiple times.
