What she’s up to now

Wright returns as Claire Underwood in the fifth season of the hit Netflix drama series “House of Cards,” which is available on May 30, 2017. The show has marked a comeback for Wright after years of raising her two children by actor Sean Penn. In 2016, Wright demanded equal pay for her “House of Cards” role after learning that co-star Kevin Spacey was earning more than she was. Wright co-produced and narrated the 2015 documentary “When Elephants Fight,” which brought attention to the scandal in the Congo involving the use of the country’s minerals to make consumer electronics.


Wright won a Golden Globe award in 2014 for best actress for “House of Cards.” In 1995, she was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role as Jenny in “Forrest Gump.” She was nominated for three Daytime Emmys for her work on the 1980s soap opera “Santa Barbara.” She was inducted into Austin’s Texas Film Hall of Fame in 2013.
