Multilingual former model Famke Janssen's breakthrough came as a killer sadomasochistic Soviet Bond Girl who killed men by squeezing them between her thighs, but she quickly proved to be an intelligent, hardworking actress eager to be taken seriously. Following up her "GoldenEye" (1995) success with a string of well-received turns in "Rounders" (1998) with Matt Damon, Woody Allen's "Celebrity" (1998) and "Love & Sex" (2000) with Jon Favreau, Janssen proved her chops by entering the Marvel Comics universe. Adding mainstream luster to her ever-growing indie cred, Janssen appeared in the blockbuster "X-Men" franchise as Dr. Jean Grey-turned-Phoenix. Coming off of that high, Janssen starred in "Taken" (2008) and its two sequels as Liam Neeson's ex-wife, and played memorable recurring roles on "Nip/Tuck" (FX, 2003-2010), "How To Get Away With Murder" (ABC 2014- ) and "The Blacklist" (NBC 2013- ). A striking beauty and fanboy favorite, Janssen continued to carve out a respected, impressive career filled with fascinating leading and character roles.
