CORPSE BRIDE

Over the last several years, EMILY WATSON (Victoria) has quickly become one of the entertainment industry's most acclaimed actresses. She first caught the world's attention for her memorable performance as Bess in Lars von Trier's Breaking The Waves, her first feature film. For her heartbreaking performance, she received Oscar and Golden Globe Award nominations and won the New York Film Critics' Circle Award and the Felix Award for Best Actress, as well as the London Film Critics' Circle Award for British Newcomer of the Year in 1997.

She received her second Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, in addition to SAG and BAFTA nominations, for Best Actress in 1999 for her riveting performance as Jackie in Hilary and Jackie. The film is the poignant and tragic story of famed classical cellist Jacqueline du Pré, directed by Anand Tucker.

This fall, aside from her role in Corpse Bride, Watson will also star in Separate Lies, which will release on October 7th. The film is written and directed by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park) and marks his directorial debut. Watson stars as Anne, who enjoys a seemingly perfect marriage to James, Tom Wilkinson (The Full Monty, In the Bedroom), until the arrival of Bill, Rupert Everett (My Best Friend's Wedding), and a tragic accident in their idyllic country village looks to unravel their lives forever.

Some of Watson's other upcoming films include: Wah-Wah, written and directed by Richard E. Grant. This family drama set in Swaziland in 1969 follows 13 year-old Ralph (Nicholas Hoult) and how he deals with the break-up of his parents' (Gabriel Byrne and Miranda Richardson) marriage. Ralph finds the break-up all too difficult and asks to be sent to boarding school. He returns two years later, on the eve of the Independence celebration of Swaziland, to find that his father has married an American ex-flight attendant, Ruby (Watson) after a two week whirlwind romance! The new wife does not fit in with the English colonial community, she doesn't even understand the way they talk, a mix of languages which she calls "Wah Wah.” The Proposition tells the story of a local law enforcer in outback Australia who pits three notorious outlaw brothers against each other. The film also stars Guy Pearce, Danny Huston and Ray Winstone. Crusade is the English-language adaptation of Thea Beckman's novel Crusade in Jeans. This film about a time-traveling teen is currently shooting in Germany, Luxembourg and Spain until the end of September.

This year Watson received a Golden Globe nomination for her performance as Anne Sellers in HBO's critically acclaimed film The Life and Death of Peter Sellers. Over the past several years, Watson has starred in a number of prestigious films including: Paul Thomas Anderson's off-beat romantic comedy Punch-Drunk Love, in which she co-starred with Adam Sandler; Red Dragon, the prequel to Silence of the Lambs, directed by Brett Ratner and co-starring Edward Norton, Ralph Fiennes and Sir Anthony Hopkins; Robert Altman's Gosford Park; Tim Robbin's Cradle Will Rock; as the title character in Alan Parker's Angela's Ashes, an adaptation of Frank McCourt's Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir; Alan Rudolph's Trixie, in which she starred with Nick Nolte. She also starred with John Turturro in The Luzhin Defense, directed by Marleen Gorris, based on the Nabokov novel; Jim Sheridan's The Boxer with Daniel Day-Lewis; and Metroland with Christian Bale, which is based on the Julian Barnes novel.

On television, Watson starred as Maggie Tulliver in the acclaimed BBC Masterpiece Theatre production of George Eliot's The Mill on the Floss.

A veteran of the London stage, Watson's theatre credits include Three Sisters, The Children's Hour at the Royal National Theatre and The Lady From The Sea. In the Fall of 2002, Watson starred at the Donmar Warehouse Theatre in two concurrent productions – U
