Biographie:

Rachel Hannah Weisz (née le 7 mars 1970) est une actrice de cinéma et de théâtre anglaise et mannequin de mode. Elle a commencé sa carrière d'actrice au Trinity Hall de l'Université de Cambridge, où elle a cofondé le groupe théâtral Cambridge Talking Tongues. Le groupe s'est vu décerner le Student Drama Award pour la pièce improvisée Slight Possession pendant le Festival Fringe d'Edimbourg de The Guardian. Weisz a commencé à travailler à la télévision, apparaissant dans Inspector Morse, dans la mini-série britannique The Scarlet and the Black, et dans le téléfilm Advocates II. Elle a fait ses débuts au cinéma dans le film Death Machine en 1994, mais son rôle décisif est apparu dans le film Chain reaction en 1996, menant à un rôle très médiatisé comme Evelyn Carnahan-O'Connell dans les films The Mummy, en 1999, et The Mummy Returns en 2001. D'autres films notables mettant en vedette Weisz sont Enemy at the Gates, About a Boy, Constantine, The Fountain et The Constant Gardener, pour lesquels elle a reçu l'Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, le Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress et le Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role. Weisz a également travaillé sur le théâtre. Sa percée scénique a été la reprise en 1994 de la pièce de Noel Coward Design for Living, qui lui a valu le London Critics' Circle Award pour le nouveau venu le plus prometteur. Les performances de Weisz comprennent également la production en 1999 de Donmar Warehouse de Suddenly Last Summer de Tennessee Williams et la reprise en 2006 de A Streetcar Named Desire. Son interprétation de Blanche DuBois dans cette dernière pièce lui a valu le Critics' Circle Theatre Award de la meilleure actrice de l'année 2009.
