Australian actress Rachel Griffiths burst onto the big screen as Toni Collette's spitfire sidekick in the sleeper hit "Muriel's Wedding" (1994) before going on to appear in over a dozen Australian, British and American films including "Hilary and Jackie" (1998), "Blow" (2001) and "Ned Kelly" (2004). In 2001, the actress - best known for emotional and intellectual characters - was perfectly cast in the highly acclaimed HBO series "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-05), earning a number of award nominations for her five-season run as a woman weighted down by the effects of a dysfunctional family. She turned around to join another dysfunctional family - this time as its anchor - on "Brothers & Sisters" (ABC, 2006-2011) and was again nominated for a Golden Globe award in 2007. Griffiths had a successful run on the popular show until the network decided to end it, allowing the actress to make her Broadway debut and return to appearing in feature films ranging from Hollywood biopic "Saving Mr. Banks" (2013) to WWII drama "Hacksaw Ridge" (2016) which never failed to showcase her unique onscreen appeal.
