THE INVASION

NICOLE KIDMAN (Carol) is an internationally recognized actress who has been honored for her work in a wide range of films. In 2003, she won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a BAFTA Award and the Berlin Film Festival's Silver Bear Award for her portrayal of Virginia Woolf in Stephen Daldry's "The Hours.”

Kidman had received her first Academy Award nomination in 2002 for her performance in Baz Luhrmann's innovative musical "Moulin Rouge!,” for which she also won a London Film Critics Award. In addition, Kidman garnered dual Golden Globe nominations that year, winning the award for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for "Moulin Rouge!” and earning a nomination for Best Actress in a Drama for her work in writer-director Alejandro Amenabar's psychological thriller "The Others.”

Kidman has a number of films upcoming, including writer-director Noah Baumbach's "Margot at the Wedding,” co-starring Jennifer Jason Leigh and Jack Black, and "The Golden Compass,” writer-director Chris Weitz's screen adaptation of the first volume in Philip Pullman's popular fantasy trilogy His Dark Materials, in which she stars with Daniel Craig. Both films are due out this fall. She is currently filming "Australia,” an epic love story set in Australia's outback, which reunited with her "Moulin Rouge!” director Baz Luhrmann. Kidman stars opposite Hugh Jackman in the film, which is set for release in 2008.

Hailing from Australia, Kidman first came to the attention of American audiences in 1989 with her critically acclaimed performance in Phillip Noyce's riveting psychological thriller "Dead Calm.” She won her first Golden Globe Award, as well as Critics' Choice and London Film Critics Awards, for her wickedly funny portrayal of a woman obsessed with becoming a TV personality at any cost in Gus Van Sant's "To Die For.” She has also been Golden Globe-nominated for her roles in Jonathan Glazer's "Birth,” Anthony Minghella's "Cold Mountain,” and Robert Benton's "Billy Bathgate.”

She recently lent her voice to the Oscar-winning animated feature "Happy Feet.” Kidman's additional film credits include Steven Shainberg's "Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus,” with Robert Downey Jr.; Sydney Pollack's "The Interpreter,” with Sean Penn; Nora Ephron's "Bewitched,” opposite Will Ferrell; Robert Benton's "The Human Stain,” with Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris; Lars von Trier's "Dogville,” with Paul Bettany and Lauren Bacall; Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut,” opposite Tom Cruise; Mimi Leder's "The Peacemaker,” with George Clooney; Jane Campion's "The Portrait of a Lady,” with John Malkovich; Joel Schumacher's "Batman Forever,” with Val Kilmer and Jim Carrey; Harold Becker's "Malice,” with Michael Keaton and Alec Baldwin; and Ron Howard's "Far and Away.”

Additionally, she narrated the documentary "God Grew Tired of Us,” the winner of the 2006 Sundance Grand Jury Award and Audience Award, and the film biography of Simon Wiesenthal, "I Have Never Forgotten You.”

In January of 2006, Kidman was awarded Australia's highest honor, the Companion in the Order of Australia. In addition, she was named Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Development Fund for Women, UNIFEM; has served as the UNICEF Ambassador for Australia; and, in 2003, became the first Chair of the Women's Health Fund at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
