British­born MIRANDA RICHARDSON began her career in English regional theater and television before making a stunning film debut in Mike Newell's haunting Dance With A Stranger. The performance caught the eye of director Steven Spielberg who cast her in Empire of the Sun.

Richardson proved her versatility with impressive back­to­back performances in Mike Newell's romantic comedy Enchanted April; as a sexy IRA terrorist in Neil Jordan's The Crying Game, which earned her a Golden Globe Award; and as a neglected wife in Louis Malle's Damage, for which she received an Oscar nomination.

In Tom & Viv, Richardson met critical acclaim as the gifted but mentally troubled Vivienne Haigh­Wood, the first wife of poet T.S. Eliot.
