Dark-haired American-born beauty Embeth Davidtz was raised and educated in South Africa where she performed classical and contemporary drama in both English and Afrikaans. She made her professional acting debut at age 21 playing Juliet in a National Theatre Company production of "Romeo and Juliet," which won her rave reviews. Having twice earned the South African equivalent of a Tony nomination for her theater work, Davidtz distinguished herself in the politically sensitive South African feature "A Private Life" (1989) as the daughter of an interracial couple, then earned a South African "Oscar" nomination playing a deaf-mute in the psychologically intense Afrikaner feature "Night of the Nineteenth."
