Ellen attended the Manhattan High School of the Performing Arts, with becoming an actress being her goal. After Ellen graduated from high school, she studied at Hunter College with a double major in history and drama, with plans to teach ancient history. Ellen decided to go for what she really wanted to do, be an actress, and give that endeavor a try first.

She studied for three years under acting teacher Lloyd Richards, at the Actor's Studio in New York City. She got roles in Off-Broadway productions:SHOUT ACROSS THE RIVER;" (1979), EXTREMITIES;(1983), FOOL FOR LOVE;(1984) and EDEN COURT;(1985). She wowed the critics and fellow actors as well.

A big year for Ellen Barkin was 1983. She was in TENDER MERCIES, DANIEL, and EDDIE AND THE CRUISERS.

In 1987, Ellen Barkin had a steamy stint as a prosecutor in THE BIG EASY.
