KIDNAP

HALLE BERRY (Karla, Producer) is an Academy Award-winning actress who continues to break down barriers with a multitude of critically acclaimed, diverse roles and continued success at the box office. She has tackled some of Hollywood's toughest roles, making her one of today's most sought-after leading ladies. For Berry's brilliant performance in Monster's Ball, she won the Academy Award for Best Actress, as well as the SAG and Berlin Silver Bear awards. She was also named Best Actress by the National Board of Review.

No stranger to accolades, Berry won a number of awards for her extraordinary performance in HBO's telefilm "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge" (which she also produced), including an Emmy, Golden Globe, SAG Award and NAACP Image Award. In 2006 Berry received Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her acting work in "Their Eyes Were Watching God" and as executive producer for the HBO telefilm "Lackawanna Blues." She was nominated for the Golden Globe for Best Actress for her role in Frankie and Alice.

Next, Berry co-stars in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, alongside Taron Egerton, Channing Tatum, Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Mark Strong and Jeff Bridges. Earlier this year, Berry wrapped production on Deniz Gamze Erguven's English-language directorial debut Kings, opposite Daniel Craig. The movie focuses on the 1992 Los Angeles riots that followed the acquittal of four police officers in the Rodney King case.

Berry was co-executive producer and star of Steven Spielberg's futuristic thriller television series "Extant." Airing for two seasons on CBS, the one-hour drama centered on a female astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns home after a year in space.

Previously, Berry starred in the summer blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past, reprising the role of Storm she originated in 2000's original X-Men. She also starred in thriller The Call, in which she plays an emergency operator who, to save a girl's life, must confront a killer from her past. She also starred alongside Tom Hanks, Susan Sarandon and Hugh Grant in Cloud Atlas, directed by Tom Tykwer and the Wachowski siblings. The film, which earned Berry a 2013 NAACP Outstanding Actress nomination, follows six stories set in different times and places that become intricately related to each other.

Berry was previously seen in Susanne Bier's Things We Lost in the Fire, opposite Benicio Del Toro; James Foley's Perfect Stranger, alongside Bruce Willis; Brett Ratner's X-Men: The Last Stand, which opened No. 1 at the box office; Pitof's Catwoman, with Benjamin Bratt; and Mathieu Kassovitz's Gothika, which helped to cement her status as an international box-office draw. She also provided the voice of Cappy in the animated hit Robots.

Critics and filmgoers first took notice of Berry in her feature debut, Spike Lee's Jungle Fever. She went on to star opposite Warren Beatty in the sociopolitical comedy Bulworth. In 2002 Berry starred opposite Pierce Brosnan in Die Another Day, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Bond franchise, which became the largest-grossing entry to that point.

Other film credits include Losing Isaiah, Executive Decision, The Flintstones, The Last Boy Scout, Strictly Business, Boomerang and Swordfish.

Television credits include the highly rated ABC miniseries "Oprah Winfrey Presents: The Wedding," directed by Charles Burnett, as well as the title role in "Queen," a miniseries based on Alex Haley's novel. The latter performance earned Berry her first NAACP Image Award for Best Actress, as well as the Best Newcomer Award from the Hollywood Women's Press Club. She also starred opposite Jimmy Smits in Showtime's original telefilm "Solomon and Sheba."

In recognition of Berry's achievements as an actress, the Harvard Foundation at Harvard University honored her as its 1996 Cultural Rhythms Artist of the Year.

Berry has garnered praise not only for her numerous leading roles, but for her work with a range of influential organizations. She is an active supporter and chair member of the Jenesse Center in Los Angeles. Founded in 1980, the Jenesse Center assists victims of domestic violence, aiming to change the pattern of abuse in the lives of women and children. Berry has also joined forces with Novo Nordisk and the Entertainment Industry Foundation to launch the Diabetes Aware campaign. This national project was created to help raise awareness about diabetes and help people with the disease manage it successfully. She is also an ambassador for the Callaway Golf Foundation Women's Cancer Initiative, encouraging women to better understand their risks for ovarian cancer and educating them on how to be proactive in the cause.

Throughout her career Berry has supported charities and organizations such as Revlon Run/Walk, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Afghanistan Relief Organization, Stand Up 2 Cancer, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, Love Our Children USA and Clothes Off Our Back.
