Julia Ormond

A veteran British stage actress who was once Hollywood's "It" girl in the early 1990s, Julia Ormond weathered the transition from silver screen ingénue to nuanced character actor with grace and style. Thrown into the spotlight with starring roles opposite Brad Pitt in "Legends of the Fall" (1994) and Harrison Ford in Sydney Pollack's "Sabrina" (1995), the ethereal beauty quickly became a household name. Though her A-list actress status waned only a few years after her career break in "Legends," Ormond's sheer force of talent led to her securing more supporting parts in small screen movies like "Varian's War" (Showtime, 2001) and "Iron Jawed Angels" (HBO, 2004). She played motherly roles in a pair of wildly divergent movies, the Lindsay Lohan thriller "I Know Who Killed Me" (2007) and the family oriented "Kit Kittredge: An American Girl" (2008), before reuniting with Pitt for David Fincher's Oscar-nominated drama, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008). Meanwhile, Ormond began wracking up award nominations for her supporting role opposite Claire Danes in the critically acclaimed biographical drama, "Temple Grandin" (HBO, 2010), and made a return to the big screen to play Vivian Leigh in "My Week With Marilyn" (2011), which assured critics and fans that Ormond's star had never truly faded.
