THE MASK OF ZORRO

CATHERINE ZETA-JONES (Elena Montero) is undertaking her first major screen role in a Hollywood film in The Mask of Zorro.

Zeta-Jones was brought to the attention of the filmmakers by Steven Spielberg, who had been watching television one night when he spotted her in "The Titanic" miniseries. The next day, he called Campbell and suggested the director consider her for Elena. "Steven convinced me," said Campbell. "Few people outside England have seen her work, and it is exciting to think we are introducing this great new talent."

Producer Foster said, "This is a huge opportunity for Catherine, starring opposite Hopkins and Banderas. She distinguishes herself both as an actress and as a true professional, having endured the physical aspects of her role."

The Mask of Zorro reunites the Welsh-born Zeta-Jones with Hopkins, who previously directed her in a 1992 theater production of the Dylan Thomas play "Under Milkwood."

"I loved working with Catherine, both in the play and in The Mask Of Zorro," Hopkins says. "She is wonderful. I'm only sorry they didn't need her to sing in Zorro. She has a beautiful voice."

Zeta-Jones first came to prominence in England in 1991 when she appeared in "The Darling Buds of May," a popular British comedy/drama series from Yorkshire Television based on the novel by H.E. Bates. Before undertaking the series, Zeta-Jones appeared on the London stage in the lead role of the musical hit "42nd Street."

She made her film debut in French director Philip de Broca's 1990 film Scheherazade.

A versatile actress, Zeta-Jones segued back to theater work in "Street Scenes" with the English National Opera after wrapping "The Darling Buds of May." She then returned to television in the title role of the miniseries "Catherine the Great." Additional film roles include a featured role in The Phantom and parts in Splitting Heirs and Christopher Columbus: The Discovery. The actress will next be seen starring opposite Sean Connery in the film, Entrapment.
