Family & Companions
After a good start playing the mother of the titular tot in the popular "Three Men and a Baby" (1987), Travis was lost amid a passel of colorful crazies in a small supporting role in "Married to the Mob" (1988) and suffered a similar fate amid the male bonding of "Eight Men Out" (1988). Despite major roles in films toplining the likes of Gene Hackman, Dan Aykroyd and Mel Gibson, Travis received little exposure in "Loose Cannons" (1989) and "Air America" (1990). She did, though, make an indelible impression as a sensuous art dealer in the uneven melodrama "Internal Affairs" (1990). "Passed Away" (1992) and the American remake of "The Vanishing" (1993), though, quickly followed the suggestion of their titles. Travis had a good cameo role as Joan Barry, the woman who brought a paternity suit against Charles Chaplin, in "Chaplin" (1992) and followed up with a lead as the suspected killer wedded to Mike Myers in "So I Married an Axe Murderer" (1993). She made her TV series debut in the CBS sitcom, "Almost Perfect" (1995-96) as an ambitious TV producer of an "NYPD Blue"-like cop show conducting a romance with an overworked district attorney. After a hiatus to start a family, Travis returned to the small screen in the short-lived CBS sitcom "Work With Me" (1999).
