LARS AND THE REAL GIRL

EMILY MORTIMER (Karin) is an award-winning actress who is quickly building an impressive list of film credits both in the U.S. and in her native England. In 2003 she won an Independent Spirit Award for her performance in Lovely and Amazing. More recently, Mortimer was recognized with an Empire Award nomination for her work in Young Adam, opposite Ewan McGregor, and with a European Film Award nomination for her work in the romantic drama Dear Frankie.

Mortimer was most recently seen in Match Point, then with Steve Martin, Beyoncé Knowles and Kevin Kline in the remake of the classic comedy The Pink Panther. Mortimer next began production on the soon-to-be-released romantic comedy Chaos Theory, opposite Ryan Reynolds under the direction of Marcos Siega.

Born in London, England, Mortimer studied English at Oxford University before pursuing her acting career. After a number of television roles and work in the theatre, she made her feature film debut in The Ghost and the Darkness, opposite Val Kilmer and Michael Douglas. Her earlier film credits also include The Saint, starring Kilmer; Shekhar Kapur's acclaimed biopic Elizabeth, starring Cate Blanchett, Geoffery Rush, Christopher Eccleston, and Joseph Fiennes; the romantic comedy hit Notting Hill, with Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts; and the horror sequel Scream 3.

In 2000, Mortimer joined the ensemble cast of Kenneth Branagh's modern take on Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost, and also starred opposite Bruce Willis in the comedy fantasy The Kid. Mortimer has since been seen in such films as Ronny Yu's The 51st State with Samuel L. Jackson, A Foreign Affair, The Sleeping Dictionary, and Stephen Fry's Bright Young Things.
