Life and career
Born Madeleine Cornman in Manhattan, New York, she is stepdaughter-in-law of Edwin Sherin and daughter-in-law of Jane Alexander. She began her career as a child actress in the 1980s, at the age of 14. Corman's first television appearance was in the 1985 ABC Afterschool Special episode "I Want to Go Home" where she co-starred with John Getz, Seth Green and Marge Redmond.
That same year she was cast in the Linda Feferman-directed teen comedy-drama motion picture Seven Minutes in Heaven. Corman starred opposite actress Jennifer Connelly as Polly Franklin, Connelly's character's intervening and overzealous best friend who is in love with a Major League baseball player named Zoo Knudsen (Billy Wirth).
In 1987, Corman appeared in the John Hughes penned film Some Kind of Wonderful as Laura, the little sister of Keith Nelson, played by Eric Stoltz.
Her follow-up film was the 1990 Renny Harlin-directed comedy The Adventures of Ford Fairlane opposite Andrew "Dice" Clay, Priscilla Presley, Wayne Newton, Lauren Holly and Gilbert Gottfried.
Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, Corman has frequently appeared on numerous popular American television series. She has made several appearances as various characters on the television drama Law & Order and the HBO comedy Tracey Takes On... opposite comedian Tracey Ullman. She had a recurring role as Ruthie on the ABC comedy series All-American Girl (1994–1995) starring Margaret Cho. She has also appeared small roles in such films as Swingers (1996), Mickey Blue Eyes (1999) and Maid in Manhattan (2002).
She is currently starring in the Off-Broadway play Accidentally Brave, an autobiographical play about her husband Jace Alexander being charged with and convicted of possessing and sharing child pornography.
She was married to Roger M. Dickes from 1992 to 1997.
Corman married Jason "Jace" Alexander, a television and stage director on September 6, 1998, in Carmel, New York. They have three children. The couple formerly lived in Dobbs Ferry, New York, but moved shortly after Alexander pleaded guilty to possessing and sharing child pornography.
