THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY
JUDE LAW (Dickie Greenleaf) is probably best known to American audiences as the murder victim in "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil." The British born actor played Lord Alfred Douglas in "Wilde" and co-starred with Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman in "Gattaca."

Law began his stage career in George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion." At London's Royal Court he starred in a revival of "Live Like Pigs" and was nominated for a Tony Award for the Broadway production of the National Theatre's "Les Parents Terribles" ("Indiscretions") in which he co-starred with Kathleen Turner, Eileen Atkins and Roger Rees. In England he received the Ian Charleson Award for Outstanding Newcomer for the same role which he originated on the London stage.
As a youth, Law worked with the National Youth Music Theatre and has appeared in several productions in the West End and at the Royal National Theatre.
He is currently starring in "'Tis Pity She's a Whore" at the Royal Court Theatre in London where he previously starred in "Ion" in 1995. Law played the lead in "The Crane," a short film made for the British Film Institute which was shown as part of the 1992 London Film Festival. He played the lead opposite Sadie Frost in Paul Anderson's "Shopping," a film about joy-riding car thieves.
Law lives in London with his wife Sadie Frost and their two year-old son Rafferty.
