Biography

This talented, strawberry-blond British actress came to art-house audience's attention with her tour de force performance as a woman coping with the death of her lover (Alan Rickman) who seemingly is haunting her, in Anthony Minghella's charmingly offbeat "Truly, Madly, Deeply" (1991). In a role written expressly for her, the actress brought an enchanting wit to a part that required her to negotiate a wide range of emotions. The actress has further demonstrated her capabilities in a handful of other features and TV appearances.
