CATE BLANCHETT (Connie Falzone) won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress and is nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her work in Elizabeth. Since graduating from Australia's National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) in 1992, Blanchett has worked extensively in the theater. She is a long-standing member of Company B, a loose ensemble of actors including Geoffrey Rush, Gillian Jones and Noah Taylor, based at Belvoir St. under the direction of Neil Armfield. With them, Blanchett has played Miranda in The Tempest, Ophelia in Hamlet, for which she earned a Green Room Award nomination, and Nina in The Seagull.

For the Sydney Theatre Company (STC), Blanchett appeared in Caryl Churchill's Top Girls, and David Mamet's Oleanna, for which she was awarded The Sydney Theatre Critics Circle Rosemount Award for Best Actress. Her new work includes Sweet Phoebe by Michael Gow and Kafka Dances by Timothy Daly, for which she received The Sydney Theatre Critics Circle Rosemount Award for Best Newcomer.

For Australian television, her credits include leading roles in the mini-series Heartland and Bordertown, both for the Australian Broadcasting Commission.

Blanchett's feature film credits include her first film role as Susan Macarthy in Bruce Beresford's Paradise Road, followed by Lizzie in Thank God He Met Lizzie, an anti-romantic comedy directed by Cherie Nowlan for which Blanchett was awarded the AFI for Best Supporting Actress. Most recently, she appeared opposite Ralph Fiennes in Oscar and Lucinda, which was directed by Gillian Armstrong.

Upcoming projects for Blanchett include Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband, directed by Oliver Parker, and The Talented Mr. Ripley, directed by Anthony Minghella. This spring Blanchett will return to her theater roots to star in a revival of David Hare's play Plenty at the Almeida Theatre in London.
