Kyra Minturn Sedgwick was born on August 19, 1965 in New York City, to Patricia (Rosenwald), a family and speech therapist, and Henry Dwight Sedgwick V, a venture capitalist. Her mother was from an upper-class German Jewish family, and her father was from a wealthy Massachusetts clan of English descent, with many prominent ancestors (including judge Theodore Sedgwick and educator Endicott Peabody).Sedgwick attended private schools. She made her professional acting debut at age 16 on the soap opera Un autre monde (1964). A graduate of USC, Kyra has pursued a career that includes stage, screen and television.

Her first brush with stardom came in Né un 4 juillet (1989) as "Donna", the high school sweetheart of Tom Cruise. Two of her roles led to Golden Globe nominations: Miss Rose White (1992) and Amour & mensonges (1995). She met her husband, Kevin Bacon, when they played leads in the television movie Lemon Sky (1988). They have two children.
