With a number of high-profile projects, a variety of magazine covers, and a spot on Teen People's 21 Hottest Stars Under 21 list in 1999 under her belt, actress Julia Stiles has come a remarkably long way in a very short time. Born March 28, 1981, in New York City, Stiles was interested in performing from a very young age. When she was eleven years old, she wrote a letter to a Manhattan theater director asking to be cast in a production and was soon acting on-stage in avant-garde plays at both the La Mama and Kitchen Theaters. In 1996, Stiles made her film debut with a small part in I Love You, I Love You Not and the following year had her television debut in the Oprah Winfrey Presents: Before Women Had Wings, in which she played an abused child. The same year, she made a brief appearance as Harrison Ford's daughter in The Devil's Own and followed with roles in two 1998 films, Wide Awake and the Sundance entry Wicked. The year 1999 proved to be Stiles' breakthrough year, as she played a prominent part in the television miniseries The '60s and the lead role in 10 Things I Hate About You, the latest film to mine gold and produce endorsements out of William Shakespeare. The film was a hit, and Stiles was soon being heralded as one of the hottest, young actors of her generation. With her name attached to a number of future projects, it seemed that Stiles would indeed have success in living up to this label.Sure enough, Stiles was almost immediately cast in two modernized-for-MTV-generation Shakespeare flicks, namely director Michael Almereyda's Hamlet (2000) with Ethan Hawke and O, a teen-oriented adaptation of Othello starring Josh Hartnett and Mekhi Phifer. As classic literature once again fell in place behind predictable romantic comedies, Stiles could be found playing the romantic lead in Down to You with teen movie veteran Freddie Prinze Jr., and alongside Sean Patrick Thomas in Save the Last Dance, which featured Stiles in the role of a grieving ballet dancer who attends an inner-city school and eventually finds love within a primarily black high school. Though the film was not a critical success, Save the Last Dance (2001) and 10 Things I Hate About You nonetheless helped construct Stiles a respectable fan base, and the young actress -- now with a Saturday Night Live credit under her belt -- would continue to build her resumé throughout the early 2000s. In the film adaptation of novelist Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity, Stiles had the chance to participate in a film starring Hollywood golden boy Matt Damon and returned to the role in 2004's The Bourne Supremacy. Stiles was praised for holding her own against Stockard Channing in The Business of Strangers (2001), which was shown at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival and fared decently in A Guy Thing, a romantic comedy-of-errors co-starring Jason Lee and Stiles' fellow Down to You alumna Selma Blair. In 2003, Stiles would play opposite the Oscar-winning Julia Roberts in Mona Lisa Smile, which finds Stiles playing a conservative '50s college student whose beliefs undergo some serious scrutiny after coming in contact with an uncharacteristically progressive teacher (Roberts). The year 2004 promised more teen-styled roles; Stiles played the eccentric title character in Carolina under the direction of Dutch filmmaker Marleen Gorris and worked with director Martha Coolidge and 28 Days Later's Luke Mably in The Prince & Me. A key role in opposite William H. Macy in director Stuard Gordon's critically lauded but little seen David Mamet adaptation Edmond served well to remind audiences of Stiles acting abilities, and the following year the wholesome-looking beauty would serve as mother to the ultimate evil in the high profile horror remake The Omen. Jumping genres to action with The Bourne Ultimatum the following year, Stiles quickly ventured back into dark territory when she joined the cast of the popular Showtime series Dexter in late 2010.

Jason Bourne says: I know who am I, I remember everything.

Nicky Parsons says: Remembering everything doesn't mean you know everything.

Joanna Reece says: Stay off the roof tops, Martin.

Joanna Reece says: Stay off the roof tops, Martin.

Nikki says: (after Sara and Nikki's fight) It ain't over, bitch.

Nikki says: It ain't over, bitch.

Sara Johnson says: I don't even know why it started, bitch.

Sara Johnson says: You know what? Derek and I like each other and if you have a problem with that, then screw you.

Sara Johnson says: You know, Snook, you talk a lot of shit for someone who never says anything.

Pat says: Nikki always said " Ronnie's wife keeps his social calendar where she keeps his balls: in her purse."

Pat says: Nikki always said, " Ronnie's wife keeps his social calendar where she keeps his balls: in her purse."

Ronnie says: That's not true.

Veronica says: Ronnie? What are you doing?

Ronnie says: Ok, it's a little true.

Veronica says: It's a fireplace!

Tiffany says: In the middle of the wall?

Joan Brandwyn says: Do you think I'll wake up one morning and regret not being a lawyer?

Katherine Watson says: Yes, I'm afraid that you will.

Joan Brandwyn says: Not as much as I'd regret not having a family, not being there to raise them. I know exactly what I'm doing and it doesn't make me any less smart. This must seem terrible to you.

Katherine Watson says: I didn't say that.

Joan Brandwyn says: Sure you did. You always do. You stand in class and tell us to look beyond the image, but you don't. To you a housewife is someone who sold her soul for a center hall colonial. She has no depth, no intellect, no interests. You're the one who said I could do anything I wanted. This is what I want.

Nicky Parsons says: Its been..... hard for me with you.

Nicky Parsons says: Its been... hard for me with you.

Katherine Watson says: It says here you're pre-law. What law school do you want to go to?

Joan Brandwyn says: I hadn't really thought about it. I always thought that after graduation I'd get married.

Katherine Watson says: And then?

Joan Brandwyn says: And then... I'd be married.

Katherine Watson says: You can do both.

Katherine Thorn says: Don't let him kill me.

Patrick Verona says: Who knocked up your sister?

Katarina Stratford says: Tell me something true.

Patrick Verona says: Something true... I hate peas.

Katarina Stratford says: No, something real, something no one else knows.

Patrick Verona says: Okay, you're sweet, and sexy, and completely hot for me.

Joan Brandwyn says: "She is too old for him,"

Joan Brandwyn says: She is too old for him.

Giselle Levy says: "No, she is too smart for him"

Giselle Levy says: No, she is too smart for him.

Katarina Stratford says: Romantic? Hemingway? He was an abusive, alcoholic misogynist who squandered half of his life hanging around Picasso trying to nail his leftovers.

Katarina Stratford says: I hate the way you talk to me, and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots, and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick; it even makes me rhyme. I hate it, I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh, even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when you're not around, and the fact that you didn't call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

Walter Stratford says: Hello, Katarina. Make anyone cry today?

Katarina Stratford says: Sadly, no. But it's only 4:30.
