RACHEL WEISZ (Angela Dodson/Isabel) plays a dual role in Constantine, which reunites her with Keanu Reeves, her co-star in the 1996 action film Chain Reaction. Weisz has been extremely busy in the past year. She is currently filming The Fountain, opposite Hugh Jackman. In 2003, she co-starred in the thriller Runaway Jury, opposite John Cusack, Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman. Earlier that same year, the talented actress was seen in Confidence, with Ed Burns and Dustin Hoffman, and in Neil La Bute's The Shape of Things, which she also co-produced.
In 2002, her work opposite Hugh Grant in the insightful comedy About a Boy brought her welcome acclaim. But it was her role as Egyptologist Evelyn Carnahan in the hugely successful Mummy films, The Mummy and The Mummy Returns, for which she is most well known.
Her other films include Jean-Jacques Annaud's war drama Enemy at the Gates, opposite Jude Law and Joseph Fiennes, the independent feature Beautiful Creatures, the British comedy Land Girls and Beeban Kidron's drama Swept from the Sea, with Vincent Perez. She was also seen in Mark Pellington's Going All The Way, with Jeremy Davies and Ben Affleck, and Bernardo Bertolucci's Stealing Beauty, opposite Liv Tyler and Jeremy Irons.
She began her acting career in London theatre while studying at Cambridge University. She formed the Talking Tongues Theater Group, which performed numerous experimental pieces and which won the prestigious Guardian Award at the Edinburgh Festival.
Weisz received the London Drama Critics Circle Award as Outstanding Newcomer for her work in the London production of Noel Coward's Design For Living and also starred in the West End production of Suddenly Last Summer for director Sean Mathias. She most recently returned to the stage in Neil LaBute's latest play The Shape of Things at the Almeida Theater in the West End of London, for which she received excellent reviews. The play had a successful run off Broadway and Weisz went on to co-produce, with Neil LaBute, and star in the subsequent film version.
