Christina began her film career at the age of nine, quickly making her way
into such modern classics as The Addams Family. Ricci managed to make her way
through her teen years onscreen fairly easily, mostly by working mainly in
independent films. Recently, her work in independents was brought to national
attention when Ricci seemed to be in every other movie in the theatres. Most
notable was her turn in the critically acclaimed black comedy The Opposite of Sex.
Sleepy Hollow marks Ricci's first leading adult role in a mainstream studio
picture. And yes, this is only her first Tim Burton film, despite how
perfectly suited to his style Ricci appears to be. Perhaps she seems just
right because of the fact that she resembles Winona Ryder (one of Burton's
onscreen darlings) enough to have played her little sister in Mermaids.
