Like Anne Heche, Kyra Sedgwick kicked off her acting career with a sudsy stint on the NBC soap “Another World" back in 1982. Unlike Anne Heche, Sedgwick didn’t notoriously parlay her “World”-ly gig into an otherworldly alter ego named Celestia. Instead, 16-year-old Sedgwick spent a year cutting her acting teeth as Julia Shearer and went on to study theatre at USC. “By the time I was 18, I was a goner,” Sedgwick once told The Daily News. “I didn't want to do anything else but act."
