Martha Plimpton (born Martha Carradine ) was born with showbiz blood with actor parents Keith Carradine and Shelley Plimpton.

She began her career in the 1980s in the film The River Rat.  After her part in the cult classic The Goonies she built up a reputation for being able to play rebellious tomboys, appearing in such films as Shy People, Silence Like Glass and Stars and Bars.  In the film The Mosquito Coast, which starred Harrison Ford and Dame Helen Mirren, she met her then-boyfriend, the now-deceased River Phoenix, whom she later left, presciently, because of his drug use.

In the 1990s she developed a reputation for being a very professional actress, taking many smaller roles in mainstream films like Beautiful Girls and in films like 200 Cigarettes and John Waters' Pecker. She was the lead in a short-run television show on HBO called The Defenders.

In 1994, Martha played the part of Earlene Pormerleau, in the film 'Forbidden Choices', with Rutger Hauer.
