Марианн Жан-Батист / Marianne Jean-Baptiste
Дата рождения: 11 ноября 1967
Marianne Jean-Baptiste's brilliantly calm performance as the illegitimate daughter of a white mother in Mike Leigh's Secrets and Lies earned her an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress in 1996; making her the first black British person to be nominated for the award.
But the film roles did not exactly come rolling in, and when Jean-Baptiste was excluded from a group of young British actors invited to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival she led a blistering attack on the not so latent racism present in the British film industry.
Since then the acclaimed actress, who is also a playwright and blues singer, has been working mostly in America in such films as Mr Jealousy (1997), The 24 Hour Woman (1999) and The Cell (2000).
