  • Birth Place: Albuquerque, New Mexico
  • Birth Name: Anne Elizabeth Gish
  • Biography: Annabeth Gish is a contemporary American actress known for starring roles in The X-Files, Mystic Pizza and Double Jeopardy. Gish was born to Robert and Judy Gish. Her grandmother was named Lillian, but Annabeth is neither related to actress Lillian Gish nor her sister Dorothy Gish. When she was 2, her family moved to Cedar Falls, Iowa, where she grew up with her brother Tim and sister Robin. Her father was an English professor at the University of Northern Iowa. Her mother was also an educator. In addition to acting during her formative years, she was active in the Lutheran denomination. She attended Duke University and is fluent in Spanish. She was a member of Professor Reynolds Price's long-running Milton course while at Duke, and has kept in touch with Price since. She was also a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority and focused her energies on the drama program, film studies and women's studies. In 2001, Gish joined the cast of The X-Files, after series star David Duchovny announced his intent to leave. During the eighth and ninth seasons, Gish and fellow newcomer Robert Patrick were designed to be the replacements once Duchovny and Gillian Anderson left. While fans now agree that their performances were good, the primary reason for many fans watching the show had been the interaction between Duchovny and Anderson's characters Mulder and Scully, and the ratings continued to drop. The ninth season became the show's last. In 2003, Gish guest starred on The West Wing playing Elizabeth Bartlet Westin, eldest daughter of President Josiah Bartlet (Martin Sheen). She appeared several times over the following seasons, rounding out the fictional Bartlet family also consisting of First Lady Abigail Bartlet (Stockard Channing) and daughters Ellie (Nina Siemaszko) and Zoey (Elisabeth Moss). She was also seen in July, 2006, as part of the cast of the Stephen King miniseries Desperation. Annabeth went to Northern University High School in Cedar Falls, IA where she graduated in 1989. Her mother, Judy Gish, also taught at the attached elementary; Malcolm Price Laboratory School.
