Geraldine Hughes stars in National Geographic Channel's television movie "Killing Lincoln," opposite Billy Campbell and Jesse Johnson, as Mary Todd Lincoln.

Geraldine Hughes may be best known for her big screen debut as Little Marie in the movie "Rocky Balboa" (2006), starring Sylvester Stallone and Milo Ventimiglia, and later as Clint Eastwood's daughter-in-law in "Gran Torino" (2008). She was also seen in the comedy "Duplex," starring Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore.

She was born and raised in Belfast as an Irish Catholic from a poverty-stricken neighborhood in the middle of a war. It was a time, during the 1970s and '80s, now known as The Troubles.

In 1984, she was cast in "The Children in the Crossfire," a television movie with Kirk Cameron, Karen Valentine, Juliet Duffy and Charles Hade that was shot in Ireland, which started her on a trajectory toward acting. After high school, she moved to the United States to study at UCLA's School of Theatre, Film and Television.

Geraldine Hughes has earned considerable praise for writing and acting all 24 parts in the autobiographical play "Belfast Blues," which was originally produced in Los Angeles at the 35-seat Black Dahlia Theatre, financed by The Virtual Theatre Company. It was scheduled to run four weeks, but was so well received that it played for 15 weeks. Since then, the show has been staged at a thousand-seat opera house in Belfast, playing twice in the city, and in Galway, Ireland, as well as London, Chicago and New York. Angelica Huston came on board to produce the show with The Culture Project, and Carol Kane served as contributing director.

Hughes' television credits include guest appearances in episodes of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," "Nurse Jackie," "Mercy," "The Good Wife," "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "The Guardian" and "ER," among others.
