Amy Landecker is an American film, stage and television actress. Landecker was born on September 30, 1969 in Chicago, Illinois. She is the daughter of John Records Landecker, a Chicago radio personality. Her maternal great-grandfather was lawyer Joseph N. Welch. She is known for her supporting roles in films that include, Dan in Real Life, A Serious Man and All Is Bright. In 2014, Landecker began starring as Sarah Pfefferman in the Amazon Studios critically acclaimed comedy-drama Transparent. Landecker earned her Screen Actors Guild card doing a voiceover for a Tampax commercial. She solely focused on stage work, and did not move to Los Angeles until she was 38. Since then, she has appeared in numerous films and television shows, including a supporting role as Mrs. Samsky in the Academy Award for Best Picture-nominated film A Serious Man, directed by the Coen brothers.

That performance received praise from many professional film critics. In 2011, Landecker was a regular cast member of The Paul Reiser Show on NBC, playing Paul Reiser's wife, Claire. On television, she has guest starred on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, NCIS, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Revenge, and many more series. She has also appeared in a number of Off-Broadway theatrical productions. Later in 2013, Landecker co-starred in films All Is Bright, Clear History and Enough Said. In 2014 she began starring alongside Jeffrey Tambor and Judith Light in the Amazon Studios comedy-drama series, Transparent. She co-starred in the Michael Bay-produced time travel thriller Project Almanac, which was released in January 2015. She was said to star in Doctor Strange. Yet her role is not disclosed.

With all the mystery surrounding the Doctor Strange cast, and the film in general given the lack of an official plot synopsis it’s quite unsurprising that Landecker's role is kept under wraps. The secrecy may be an indication she will be playing a known character. Landecker and her Transparent co-star Bradley Whitford began dating in early 2015. Before dating Bradley she was married to her then husband Jackson Lynch which didn’t work for a long time and they filed for a divorce in 2011. Their affair started while filming together. Her net worth or salary is not disclosed yet. More on her bio can be learned in the internet.
