Madeleine Marie Stowe Mora
CLAIM TO FAME:
She is well-known for her role as Cora Munro in The Last of the Mohicans.
She has been married since 1982 to actor Brian Benben. They have one daughter, May Theodora Benben (born 1996).
Stowe took piano lessons as a young girl as a way to avoid socializing with other kids. However, when her music teacher Sergei Tarnowsky died at the age of 96, she decided to quit piano altogether and went to the University of Southern California to study cinema and journalism. While she was performing at a Beverly Hills theater, a movie agent spotted her and found her several offers to appear on television and in film.
Stowe acted in mostly supporting roles for many years, until she finally got a little more recognition playing the wife of Kurt Russell in the crime drama Unlawful Entry in 1992. That same year, she played Cora Munro in The Last of the Mohicans, which also starred Daniel Day-Lewis.
Director Robert Altman cast her in 1993's Short Cuts as the wife of a compulsive liar and adulterous police officer played by Tim Robbins. She has also played a blind musician in the thriller Blink, a psychiatrist in the science-fiction thriller Twelve Monkeys, and appeared in 1998's The Proposition, and The General's Daughter in 1999.
When not filming, she spends her time at her ranch in Texas, which she shares with her husband Brian Benben.
Is half British (father) and half-Costa Rican (mother).
Chosen by Empire magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history (#90). 
Pretended to be a reporter just so she could meet John Travolta before she became famous.
Replaced Faith Hill as Julie Moore in We Were Soldiers (2002).
In 1982 she married her boyfriend of a year Brian Benben, whom she met on the set of the NBC miniseries The Gangster Chronicles (1981).
Coincidentally, Stowe appeared in the 1990 theatrical film "Revenge" and also appeared on an unrelated TV series also titled "Revenge".
WHERE IS SHE NOW:
Stowe and her husband own a working cattle ranch outside of Fredericksburg, Texas. This is where they spend their spare time. She recently appeared on the Syfy series 12 Monkeys, after starring in the 1995 Terry Gilliam film.
