Made feature-film debut in 1996 in Breaking the Waves; she won the role after Helena Bonham Carter, who was to play the part, dropped out. Turned down the lead in 2001 romantic comedy Amélie, which was written with her in mind, in part because she didn't speak French well enough. In 2003, received an honourary master's degree from her alma mater, Bristol University. As a supporter of the children's charity, the NSPCC, was inducted into the society's hall of fame for leading the successful campaign to appoint a Children's Commissioner for England in 2004. In 2007, wrote Mood Indigo with her husband, a film script set in the Second World War about a young woman who falls in love with a pilot. Appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2015. Active in the British children's charity Scene & Heard.
