REIGN OVER ME
Perhaps best known for her work in critically acclaimed foreign films, SAFFRON
BURROWS (Donna Remar) is set to gain the attention of American audiences once
again with a string of eclectic roles in her upcoming feature films.
She is currently in production on Amy Redford's directorial debut The Guitar. The story
revolves around a woman (Burrows) who, after being diagnosed as having one month
to live, decides to max out her credit cards and start living beyond her wildest dreams.
The film is currently shooting in New York.
Following production on The Guitar, she will join the cast of Roger Donalson's Baker
Street, which is currently shooting in London. She will star opposite Jason Statham. The
story is a re-creation of the famous 1970s Baker St. heist in London. Burrows plays
Martine, the lead instigator of the heist. Baker Street is produced by Myriad Pictures
and Chuck Roven.
In addition, she can be seen in Hal Hartley's Fay Grim, which premiered at the 2007
Sundance Film Festival.
In 2005, Burrows completed production on Klimt and Perfect Creature. Produced by
Tim Sanders (Lord of the Rings, Whale Rider), Perfect Creature centers on a human
cop (Dougray Scott) and a vampire who team up to stop a rogue vampire intent on
creating a war between the two races. Twentieth Century Fox is set to release the film.
In Raoul Ruiz's Klimt, Burrows appears opposite John Malkovich. Klimt is a portrait of
Austrian artist Gustav Klimt, whose lavish, sexual paintings came to exemplify the Art
Nouveau style of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Outsider Pictures will release
the film this spring.
Burrows was last seen in Wolfgang Petersen's Troy with Brad Pitt, Eric Bana, and
Orlando Bloom. Burrows played Andromache, wife of the Trojan hero Hector (Bana).
She also appeared in Mike Figgis's Hotel as part of an ensemble of forty actors
including David Schwimmer, Salma Hayek, and Burt Reynolds.
Additional recent films include Enigma, Gangster No. 1, Mike Figgis' film adaptation of
Miss Julie, Timecode, One Night Stand, the Australian romantic comedy Hotel De Love,
Renny Harlin's Deep Blue Sea, Mark Joffe's The Matchmaker, Pat O'Connor's Circle of
Friends, Jim Sheridan's In the Name of the Father, and Ngozicah Onwurah's Welcome
to the Terra Dome.
For television, her credits include the acclaimed productions of Dennis Potter's
("Pennies from Heaven") "Karaoke" for the BBC and "Cold Lazarus" for Channel 4
Britain. She also appeared in Antonia Bird's "Full Stretch," Simon Cellan-Jones' "Rik
Mayall Presents: The Big One," and Gerard Verges' "Meutre en Ardeche."
A native of Great Britain, Burrows speaks fluent French and Italian. She currently
divides her time between London and Los Angeles.
