Graced with a classic, timeless beauty and equally adept at both high drama and low comedy, British actress Romola Garai had long drawn the admiration of film critics. Born and raised throughout Asia and southeast England, Garai was first spotted by a casting director while performing in a school play in London. Cast in a small role as the young Judi Dench in the ITV teleplay "Last of the Blonde Bombshells," the 17-year-old soon was soon inundated with offers for more work. Garai dove into subsequent assignments with a great sense of purpose and was soon winning raves for her performances in the feature films "I Capture the Castle" (2003) and "Vanity Fair" (2004), as well as for her work in the made-for-TV movie "The Incredible Journey of Mary Bryant" (2005) and the miniseries "Emma" (2009).
