• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Anjelica Huston in 2010.

With her height, angular face and piercing stare, Anjelica Huston has carved herself a niche playing women who range from authoritative and only mildly intimidating, to awesome and terrifying evil queens and witches. This is the actress you call upon to play the ideal screen Morticia Addams, the quintessential Evil Stepmother, or anybody with the title of Grand High Witch.

Although she has a warmth if you care to look for it, as Wes Anderson has done recently[when?] in The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou and The Darjeeling Limited.

She happens to be the daughter of John Huston, and the granddaughter of Walter Huston. (Since both of them had gotten Oscars, when she won Best Supporting Actress for Prizzi's Honor she became the third generation of her family to get one.) Her brothers are Tony Huston and Danny Huston.
