Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Once hailed as "Audrey Hepburn with a darker edge," actress Rose Byrne launched a successful film career in the United States after an auspicious showbiz beginning on television in her native Australia. Her pivotal role as Trojan princess Briseis in the epic "Troy" (2004) marked her first major exposure to American audiences, after which she lent her effusive charm to mainstream successes like "28 Weeks Later" (2007) and represented a promising new breed of young actor in the youthful thriller "Wicker Park" (2004), the new wave biopic "Marie Antoinette" (2006), and the Judd Apatow-produced comedy "Get Him to the Greek" (2010). An acclaimed co-starring role on the biting legal series "Damages" (FX, 2007-2012) firmly established Byrne's strength for mild-mannered characters who conceal an unexpected strength just below the surface.

Notes

"It's sort of impossible to plan as an actor because it's a very passive job.. really, it's just waiting until you get another gig."---Byrne quoted in Interview July 2004

"Here in L.A. the standard of beauty is kind of ridiculous. I want to be doing this when I'm in my fifties and sixties and this isn't what I'm going to look like."---Byrne to Movieline's Hollywood Life, September 2004.
