MIAMI VICE

One of London's most promising imports, NAOMIE HARRIS (Trudy Joplin) takes on Hollywood with an innate acting ability, strength and beauty that emanates on screen. She achieved leading lady status in the critically acclaimed thriller 28 Days Later and continues to grow with numerous upcoming films and roles starring opposite such actors as Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Pierce Brosnan, Woody Harrelson and Colin Firth.

This summer, Harris also stars in the highly anticipated film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. She plays the gypsy queen Tia Dalma, opposite Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley. Directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Harris will reprise the role in Pirates of the Caribbean 3.

She recently starred in the critically acclaimed Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, playing an eager AD in a complicated love triangle. She also starred in Brett Ratner's New Line film After the Sunset, with Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek and Woody Harrelson. In it, she played a Bahamian cop who is part of an ensemble who manages to pull off an elaborate heist.

Raised in North London, Harris has studied acting since she was nine years old. She graduated from Cambridge University (Pembroke College) and went on to train at the prestigious Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Fellow alumni of this school include Daniel Day-Lewis, Brian Blessed, Miranda Richardson and Jeremy Irons.

Complementing her training in 2000, Harris spent her first year of drama school doing theater before auditioning for Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, The Beach, Shallow Grave) in 2001 and securing the co-lead of Selena in 28 Days Later. A machete-wielding urban survivor role, her character required a month's personal training to prepare for the stunt work that she performed.

Harris then went on to play Clara in the Channel 4 adaptation of Zadie Smith's Whitbread winning novel White Teeth, and then starred with Matthew Macfadyen (Spooks) as Maggie in Peter Kosminsky's (White Oleander) two-part political docudrama The Project, for the BBC. Since then, Harris has starred opposite Colin Firth and Mena Suvari in Marc Evan's (My Little Eye) film Trauma.

Harris currently resides in London.
