UPLOADED RESUME
  • * In her native country The Netherlands, Carice van Houten (1976) has become
    one of the most beloved actresses. She won several awards, including Best
    Actress at Tribeca Film Festival for her role in BLACK BUTTERFLIES in 2011,
    four Dutch Golden Calves for Best Actress and was voted 'Best Dutch Actress
    of All Time' by the Dutch audience in 2008. Her stunning performance in
    Paul Verhoeven's war epic BLACK BOOK marked the beginning of Carice's
    international breakthrough. In the Tom Cruise/ Bryan Singer film VALKYRIE,
    she stars in the female lead as Nina Von Stauffenberg. In the summer of
    2011 Carice joins the cast of HBO's hit series GAME OF THRONES.

    Carice Anouk van Houten was born in Leiderdorp (near Leiden) on 5 September
    1976. In 1995 she was rather uniquely accepted by both the Maastricht and
    Amsterdam drama academies, and started her TV career (LABYRINT, VPRO TV
    1997) as a student of the Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam. There she was
    awarded the 1999 Pisuisse Prize for most promising graduation student, and
    the 2000 Top Naeff Prize for her theatre work. A day before the Top Naeff
    Prize she was awarded the Golden Calf as best TV actress in Martin
    Koolhoven's SUZY Q.

    In 2006 Carice shines as Jewish singer Rachel Stein in Paul Verhoeven's
    critically acclaimed BLACK BOOK, which launches her international career.

    Bryan Singer's VALKYRIE is the first major Hollywood production for Carice
    to appear in. She stars as Nina von Stauffenberg, the wife of Tom Cruise's
    character Claus von Stauffenberg who makes an attempt on Hitler's life. In
    the same year New York Magazine proclaimed her Woman of the Year and Vanity
    Fair featured a Vanities article on her.

    Carice plays with Maggie Smith in the ghost story FROM TIME TO TIME, with
    Jude Law in REPO MEN, together with Sean Bean in the horror film BLACK
    DEATH and Clive Owen in INTRUDERS (2012). In 2010 Carice stars in BLACK
    BUTTERFLIES (dir. Paula van der Oest), an English-language romantic epic
    about South African poet Ingrid Jonker, played by Carice.

    In 2011 Carice is added to the cast of GAME OF THRONES. She will portray
    Melisandre in the second season of HBO's hit series, a seductive woman
    with prophetic powers.
