Raised by a free-spirited Philosopher Queen in various ghettos across America (Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, New York) with stops in London and the jungles of Yucatan where they lived in a hut in a village of 80 Mayan Indians,O-Lan Jonesbegan her professional acting career at 16 in the hotbed of New York's off-off Broadway scene in the late '60s and early '70s. When she was 19 she married playwright Sam Shepard with whom she has a son, Jesse Shepard, author of Jubilee King, a collection of short stories published by Bloomsbury Press. Shepard and Jones divorced in 1983. Since that time, of the more than 80 plays she's acted in, only two have been performed prior to her involvement in them; part of her lot in life is as accomplice to new/experimental projects.

Since moving to Los Angeles in 1990 she has had a broad range of roles in film and television. Equally at home in comedy or drama she is often asked to walk the line between the two. In features she has worked with directors Tim Burton, Jonathan Demme, Ivan Reitman, Paul Schraeder, John Schlesinger, Oliver Stone, Peter Weir and Paul Bartel who directed Shelf Life a movie she wrote and starred in with Andrea Stein and Jim Turner.
