KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS (Kay Chandler) was last seen on screen as Annie
MacLean in Robert Redford's western epic "The Horse Whisperer." She
was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress for her performance as Katharine
Clifford in 1997's Best Picture "The English Patient." She also made
an indelible impression on audiences in two films released in 1994: Roman
Polanski's "Bitter Moon," in which she played a spiteful wife, and
"Four Weddings and a Funeral," in which she appeared as a supremely
elegant and beautiful Englishwoman with an unrequited passion for the film's
hero. "Four Weddings," one of the most popular British films ever
made, earned her two of England's most important acting prizes, The Evening
Standard Award and Best Supporting Actress Award from the British Film and
Television Academy (BAFTA).
Her performance in "Angels and Insects," directed by Philip Haas,
won her another Evening Standard Award, this time as Best Actress. Born in
Dorset and educated at the Central School of Speech and Drama and the Ecole
Nationale des Arts et Techniques de Theatre in Paris, Scott Thomas made her film
debut opposite the artist formerly known as Prince in "Under the Cherry
Moon." She then appeared in a series of French films and theater pieces by
such authors as Marguerite Duras and Roland Dubillard. In 1988, she was cast in
the leading role in Charles Sturridge's screen adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's
"A Handful of Dust" and won the Evening Standard Award as Best
Newcomer. That year she also appeared on television in the Hallmark Hall of Fame
presentation of "The Tenth Man." A mix of films in French and English
followed including "Force Majeur," "Titmus Regained,"
"Endless Game," "Aux Yeux du Monde," "Body and
Soul," "Unforgettable Summer" and Ian McKellen's "Richard
III." She also co-starred in the blockbuster "Mission:
Impossible," and will soon be seen in "Up at The Villa," which
reunites her with director Philip Haas. Scott Thomas lives with her husband and
children in Paris, France.
