Life and careerEdit
Green is best known for her roles as a young teen in a string of teen flicks in the 1980s, including Summer Rental (1985), in which she starred as the daughter of a stressed-out air traffic controller (John Candy). Her big break came in the 1985 film The Goonies, in which she played cheerleader-turned-adventurer Andrea "Andy" Carmichael.
She gained further critical acclaim for her performance in Lucas (1986), in which she starred as the center of a love triangle between the characters of Corey Haim and Charlie Sheen. However, her next film, Three for the Road (1987), which featured Charlie Sheen and Alan Ruck, did not fare as well. Green later appeared in a 1990 episode of In the Heat of the Night , performed in an independent film called Blue Flame, and played the role of secretary of Paul Reiser's character in two episodes of the television sitcom Mad About You. She then took a break from acting to study art at Vassar College, where she was roommates with Marisa Tomei's brother, Adam, and with BioShock developer Ken Levine.
Green eventually co-founded a film production company, Independent Women Artists, with Bonnie Dickenson. With Dickenson, she co-wrote and directed the film adaptation of a play about teen pregnancy called Bellyfruit (1999).
