Lucille Langston

played by Frances Fisher


Lucille Langston lives with her husband Henry in Arcadia. Though she has a relaxed, lovingly affectionate relationship with Henry, she’s never stopped missing Jacob, her son who apparently drowned years ago when he was just a boy. She fills the emotional hole with various projects and activities, always keeping busy. When Jacob is brought back home by Agent J. Martin Bellamy, Lucille doesn’t waste time asking unanswerable questions, because she’s just too delighted to have her beloved boy back again.


Born in Milford On-Sea, England, Frances Fisher's itinerant childhood in the UK, Columbia, Canada, France, Brazil, Turkey, Italy, Iowa and Texas undoubtedly provided fodder for her thespian career. After graduating from high school in Orange, Texas, Frances cut her teeth acting on Tennessee Williams & Robert Bolt at The Orange Community Theater. She then apprenticed at the Barter Theatre in Virginia before moving to New York City where her career quickly blossomed.

Her diverse film career spans cool indies to blockbusters to Academy Award-winning movies. Her long list of credits include Tough Guys Don't Dance, Can She Bake A Cherry Pie?, Babyfever, Patty Hearst, Female Perversions, Oscar winner Unforgiven, True Crime, The Big Tease, The Rising Place, Blue Car, Mrs. Harris, The Kingdom, House of Sand & Fog, Wild America, Laws of Attraction, In The Valley Of Elah, Jolene, The Perfect Game, Golf in the Kingdom, Sedona and The Lincoln Lawyer. Ms. Fisher is perhaps best known for her memorable performance as Kate Winslet's mother in Titanic, which garnered her a Screen Actors Guild nomination for Best Ensemble Cast, while the film went on to receive 11 Academy Awards.
