MISSION TO MARS

CONNIE NIELSEN (Mars Rescue Mission specialist Dr. Tern Fisher) recently completed production on the Ridley Scott epic "Gladiator" in which she stars opposite Russell Crowe, Joaquin Phoenix and Richard Harris.

She also starred in the recent 'Soldier," a futuristic story about the American Force's fighting elite. It was her performance as the pioneer woman Sandra, who nurses Kurt Russell's character — a veteran soldier — back to health, that vaulted Nielsen to her leading-lady status. She also recently completed filming "Dark Summer," co-starring French actor Jean- Hughes Anglade.

Her breakthrough performance came in 1997 as the devil's daughter in "The Devil's Advocate," starring Al Pacino and Keanu Reeves. Additionally, she made memorable appearances in the Touchstone Pictures comedy "Rushmore," with Bill Murray and "Permanent Midnight," opposite Ben Stiller. Other film credits include "Voyage," with Rutger Hauer and Eric Roberts, and the foreign film "Le Paradis Absolument," with Christopher Malavoy.

Since the age of 15, Nielsen has been captivating audiences with her charisma. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, Nielsen began her acting career working alongside her mother in local revue and variety shows. At 18, she headed to Paris to continue her pursuit of acting, which led her to further work and study in Rome, Milan and South Africa. In addition to being an accomplished actress, Nielsen is also a trained singer, dancer and is fluent in English, German, Danish, Swedish, French and Italian.

She studied acting in Italy and New York, where she now lives.
