In a relatively short span of time, JACINDA BARRETT (Maggie James) has burst upon
the scene and left an indelible mark as a beautiful and extremely talented performer. This year,
Barrett can be seen in four very different roles that will showcase her range.
Following the release of Poseidon, she stars in two films out this fall. First is the romantic
comedy Last Kiss, which is written by Paul Haggis and stars Zach Braff. The film will be
released on September 29th. Barrett will then be seen in the Todd Phillips-directed comedy
School for Scoundrels, starring opposite Billy Bob Thornton and Jon Heder. The film will be
released in October.
In addition, she will be seen in Mira Nair's drama The Namesake, an adaptation of the
novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jhumpa Lahiri, scheduled for release this winter.
Barrett most recently appeared opposite Joaquin Phoenix and John Travolta in Ladder 49
and in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, starring Renee Zellweger. In 2003, she received
critical acclaim for her performance in Robert Benton's The Human Stain, which co-starred
Nicole Kidman, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris.
Barrett got her start in her hometown of Brisbane, Australia. She studied acting at the
British Academy of Dramatic Art in Oxford, England, an experience she used in her first film
project, Dave Semel's Campfire Tales. Additional film credits include Immaculate Springs,
Dominique Faix and Art House. Her television credits include Dick Wolf's WB series DC and
John Wells' series Citizen Baines for CBS.
Barrett has her private pilot's license.
