Biography:
 
The daughter of a Jewish-Hungarian inventor and an Austrian psychoanalyst, Rachel Weisz was born in London on 7 March 1971. She spent her teenage years in modeling, and after attending Cambridge to study English, she broke into acting with a role in Design for Living. Her performance in the play won her the Critics' Circle Best Newcomer award, and she next took a starring role in the BBC's TV adaptation of Scarlet Black (1993).

Weisz first earned the attention of international audiences with her role as the spoiled daughter of a sculptor in Stealing Beauty (1996). This recognition was furthered as she starred opposite Keanu Reeves in Chain Reaction that same year. Weisz followed it with leads in smaller films such as The Land Girls (1997), a World War II drama that cast her as a young socialite sent to work on a farm; and Going All the Way (1997) alongside Ben Affleck, in which she played as Affleck's Jewish girlfriend.

After returning to Britain to star as a hairdresser in I Want You (1998), Weisz reappeared in the summer blockbuster The Mummy (1999), alongside Brendan Fraser. That same year, she played another love interest alongside Ralph Fiennes in Sunshine, an epic drama about three generations of a Hungarian Jew’s family.

Weisz next appeared in Enemy at the Gates (2000) as a Russian-American sniper caught between the affections of a Russian party official, played by Joseph Fiennes, and a legendary sniper, played by Jude Law.

After making a return in The Mummy Returns (2001), Weisz starred alongside screen legend Dustin Hoffman in the crime drama Confidence (2003) which gained positive reviews from critics. She then appeared in the courtroom thriller Runaway Jury (2003) and the comedy Envy (2004).
