Madigan was nominated for an Oscar for the 1985 film Twice in a Lifetime. From 2003 to 2005, she starred in the HBO series Carnivàle as Iris Crowe, the sister of sinister preacher Brother Justin Crowe (Clancy Brown). Madigan also played keyboard, percussion, and vocals behind Steve Goodman on tour throughout the late 1970s. Later she briefly recorded with Danny Sheridan's Eli Radish Band[2] replacing former Pure Prairie League vocalist Starr Smith.[3] She was (with singers Fred Bliffert and Jesse Roe) one-third of the group Jelly whose only album, A True Story, was released by Asylum in 1977. At the 71st Academy Awards, Madigan was one of several performers who refused to applaud Elia Kazan, due to his controversial activities during his career.

Madigan appeared in four episodes of Season 3 of Fringe as Olivia's mother.[4]
