a successful model and a producer. She reprises her co-starring
role from Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.
As an actress, Hurley starred in the critically acclaimed Permanent

scriptwriter and heroin-addict Jerry Stahl. She was most recently
seen in Disney's My Favorite Martian with Jeff Daniels

Blue Eyes, a romantic comedy starring Hugh Grant, Jeanne Tripplehorn
and James Caan, that is currently in post production. Hurley also
developed and produced their first film Extreme Measures,
starring Hugh Grant and Gene Hackman, which was released in 1996.

Hurley initially worked in the theatre after studying dance and
drama at the London Studio Centre, and made her screen debut in
the 1987 film Aria directed by Bruce Beresford. This was followed
by a string of television parts in shows such as "Rumpole
of the Bailey" and "Inspector Morse," before she
landed her first starring role opposite Hugh Grant in the Spanish
feature film, Remando al Viento. In addition to acting and producing,
Hurley represents Estee Lauder in its worldwide advertising campaigns.
