Among the credits for EMILY MORTIMER (voice of Holley Shiftwell) is her breakout role in the critically acclaimed "Lovely & Amazing,” a comical, bittersweet tale of four hapless but resilient women and the lessons they learn in keeping up with the hectic demands of their individual neuroses. The film brought Mortimer great critical acclaim and a 2003 Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Mortimer has been seen in a wide range of performances, including Martin Scorsese's box-office hit "Shutter Island,” in which she played a mysterious patient of the clinic where the story is set; the hit comedy "City Island,” opposite Andy Garcia; the crime drama "Harry Brown,” in which she played a detective opposite Michael Caine; the thriller "Transsiberian,” directed by Brad Anderson and co-starring Woody Harrelson and Ben Kingsley; and "The Pink Panther 2,” reprising her role of Nicole opposite Steve Martin.

Mortimer's film credits also include starring in Shona Auerbach's "Dear Frankie,” for which she earned a London Film Critics Award nomination; acclaimed filmmaker David Mackenzie's first film, "Young Adam,” starring Ewan McGregor, for which Mortimer earned a nomination as Best British Actress at the 2004 Empire Awards and a nomination for Best British Actress in a Supporting Role at the 2004 London Film Critics Circle Awards; Stephen Fry's directorial debut "Bright Young Things”; Kenneth Branagh's "Love's Labour's Lost”; Shekhar Kapur's award-winning "Elizabeth”; "The Ghost and the Darkness,” with Michael Douglas and Val Kilmer; "Formula 51,” with Robert Carlyle and Samuel L.

Mortimer has starred in a range of television projects for the BBC and played the recurring role of Phoebe, a love interest for Alec Baldwin's character, during the 2007 season of the hit NBC series "30 Rock.”

Mortimer's theater credits include making her off-Broadway debut at the Atlantic Theater (February 2008 to April 2008) in the world premiere of acclaimed playwright Jez Butterworth's "Parlour Song.” Directed by Neil Pepe, the play looks at what happens when two ordinary people discover they hate what they have become. The story revolves around Dale (Chris Bauer), a demolitions expert, who comes to believe that his wife (Mortimer) is stealing from him. With sly and incisive writing, the play is set in a heightened comic world where all is not what it seems, and the looming sense of a wolf at the door becomes ever more intense. The play also starred Jonathan Cake.

Prior to "Parlour Song,” Mortimer's theater credits included productions of "The Merchant of Venice” for the Lyceum Theatre and "The Lights” for the Royal Court. While studying English at Oxford University, Mortimer had starring roles in numerous stage productions, including "Hamlet” at Oxford Shakespeare Festival, "Hamlet” and "Top Girls” at the Edinburgh Festival, "The Trial” at the Oxford Playhouse and "A Midsummer Night's Dream” at the Old Fire Station, Oxford. She also devised, directed and acted in a production of "Don Juan,” which was a Drama Cupper's Winner.

In November 2007, Mortimer was invited by Eric Idle (Monty Python) to take part in his tryout run of his new play "What About Dick?” for two public performances at the Ricardo Montalban Theater. The stellar cast included Billy Connolly, Tim Curry, Eric Idle, Eddie Izzard, Jane Leeves, Jim Piddock and Tracy Ullman. Subtitled "A Film for Radio,” Idle's work-in-progress comedy involved the eight actors gathered together on stage to perform a classic radio drama at the original Lux Radio Theater.

Mortimer was born in London, England. She is the daughter of famed writer Sir John Mortimer and Penelope Glossop. Mortimer attended the highly respected St. Paul's Girls School in Barnes, London. She then studied English and Russian at Oxford University from 1990 to 1994. She married actor Alessandro Nivola in 2002; their son was born in 2003 and their daughter was born in 2010.
