Kate Capstaw

If asked what Kate Capstaw has been doing since her preformance in "Temple of Doom", it tempting to say "born and raised children".

Capshaw worked as a teacher with an MA in Learning Disabilities. Her desire to be an actress led her to New York where she landed a role on the soap "Edge of Night, The" (1956). She met her future husband, Steven Spielberg while beating out 120 actresses for the female lead in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984).

Earthy, vivacious leading lady who made a capital debut as the megatolerant wife in A Little Sex (1982) and was equally fine in the lostyouth comedy/drama Windy City (1984). But her over-the-top performance in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) was savaged by critics, sending her career into a tailspin. More recently, she has come back in smaller, quieter roles in Black Rain (1989), Love at Large (1990), and My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys (1991). She also starred in the shortlived TV parody series "Black Tie Affair" (1993). She is married to her Indiana Jones director, Steven Spielberg.
