Huffman started her career at theater while Speed the Plow production was her first Broadway experience. She first appeared on TV in 1978 in an episode of ABC Afterschool Special. In 10 years, Felicity obtained her first movie part in Things Change. However, the real popularity came in the mid-2000s after she had a part in Desperate Housewives series and earned Emmy plus SAG Awards. At that time, the performer also made a big screen breakthrough by portraying the lead character in Transamerica. That role brought her the Golden Globe and made her an Oscar nominee.
