However,when she was seven years old, her family entered a cult group called Moral Re-Armament. During that time, Close performed with an MRA group and traveled for several years later. After 15 years, she rebelled against the movement because she wanted to go to college.

In 1990, she received critical acclaim for her role on Reversal of Fortune. In recent years, she has dedicated time to work in television.
