Virginia Davis is a producer and actress professionally known as Geena Davis. Davis made her acting debut in 1982 in the film “Tootsie,” and then she starred in the thriller, “The Fly.” Her role as Barbara Maitland in 1988’s “Beetlejuice” brought acclaim, but her roles in “Thelma & Louise” and “The Accidental Tourist” brought her to widespread prominence. Davis also starred in “A League of Their Own,” which earned her a Golden Globe nomination. However, her roles in box office duds like “A Long Kiss Goodnight” and “Cutthroat Island” led to a slump and break in her career.

Coming back from her break, Davis starred in “Stuart Little” as the adoptive mother and in “Commander in Chief” as the first female president. In 2004, she started the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, which works to increase the presence of female characters in media.
