THE BOURNE SUPREMACY
FRANKA POTENTE (Marie) played roles in several German films before she gained
worldwide recognition for her title role in Tom Tykwer's Run Lola Run, which won an
Audience Award at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival and the Best Foreign Film award at
the Independent Spirit Awards in 2000. She took on the role of Marie Helena Kreutz
opposite Matt Damon in Universal's The Bourne Identity in 2002. During that year,
Potente starred with Elijah Wood and Mandy Moore in Try Seventeen. Potente was seen
in Ted Demme's Blow, opposite Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz, and she also starred in
the romantic thriller The Princess and the Warrior, which re-teamed her with
writer/director Tykwer in the story of two outlaw lovers. In addition, Potente recently
finished shooting Christopher Smith's Creep and has signed on to play a revolutionary in
Che, a biopic about Che Guevara, which will team her up with Benicio Del Toro,
Benjamin Bratt and Ryan Gosling.
Potente, who was born in MÃ¼nster, Germany, moved to Munich in 1974 to study
drama at the Otto Falkenberg School and also studied at the Lee Strasberg Theatre
Institute in New York.
