BIOGRAPHY

This talented, atypically beautiful teenage lead trained as a ballet dancer and made her film debut at age 12 in "East of Sudan" (1964), playing an Arab child. Jenny Agutter came to international attention, however, in Nicolas Roeg's "Walkabout" (1971), as a girl lost with her brother in the Australian outback who comes to rely on an aborigine in order to survive. She has since made a smooth transition to adult roles--although usually in supporting parts--in such diverse films as "Sweet William" (1979), "An American Werewolf in London" (1981), "Darkman" and "Child's Play 2" (both 1990).
