DIANE KRUGER (Lisa) recently made her international screen debut as the legendary
Helen in Wolfgang Petersen's highly anticipated epic Troy. Starring alongside Brad Pitt and
Orlando Bloom, Kruger plays the woman whose face launched a thousand ships in the
war between the nations of Greece and Troy. Eric Bana, Rose Byrne, Peter O' Toole and
Julie Christie also star.
In November, Kruger will co-star with Nicolas Cage in the action adventure National
Treasure, directed by Jon Turtletaub for producer Jerry Bruckheimer. In October, she will begin
filming Copying Beethoven, which will be directed by Agnieszka Holland; Kruger will star
opposite Ed Harris.
Born and raised in Germany, Kruger first studied dance in London with the Royal Ballet.
She then returned to her native country and became a European cover model. At the suggestion
of filmmaker Luc Besson, Kruger began taking classes at the Ecole Fleuron in Paris, eventually
winning the school's Classe Libre award for Best Actor.
Kruger began her acting career opposite Dennis Hopper and Christopher Lambert in the
2003 independent production The Piano Player. She followed with roles in the highly acclaimed
French film Mon Idole (which was nominated for a Cesar Award) and Michel
Kruger was honored at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival with the Chopard Trophy for
Female Revelation of the Year.
Kruger currently resides in Paris.
