Though De Mornay's role lasted just five episodes, it remains one of the more memorable season 6 guest appearances that also included turns from Emile Hirsch, David Krumholz, Shia LaBeouf, Anton Yelchin, Martha Plimpton, Gabrielle Union, and Vincent Kartheiser.
Maggie Gyllenhaal had been deep within the film industry since a little kid.
As one might expect with The Outer Limits, there are twists and turns to be had throughout the narrative.
Her breakthrough film role came in 1983, when she played Lana in Risky Business.
De Mornay plays a key role in those twists as a mysterious woman who may or may not be pulling the strings.
It as the cast and crew may have hoped, but De Mornay made the most of the moment, delivering a memorable performance that put her leading lady chops on full display.
