In Gone Baby Gone, Tony Award® winner and Best Supporting Actress nominee Amy Ryan is utterly believable as Helene McCready, the drug-addicted single mother in Boston who hires two private investigators after her 4-year-old daughter is abducted.
Although she's acted on stage and on television, Gone Baby Gone is Amy's first major role in a motion picture. "It's insane," she says. "It's a roller coaster ride, but it's the first hill that you're excited. Then it's the dizzying, nauseating turns, and you didn't tell me there's going to be a corkscrew and a loop and a tunnel! But it's fun."
