Biography

English actress Naomie Harris won over moviegoers with a pair of extremely opposite characters - the ruthless, machete-wielding Selena in Danny Boyle's science fiction thriller "28 Days Later" (2002); and Tia Dalma, the grotesquely bedecked witch in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" (2006) and its sequel, "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" (2007). In between these roles, she assumed a more down-to-earth persona, such as a comely detective in Michael Mann's big-screen "Miami Vice" (2006).
