An Australian actress with expressive eyes who's been compared to Audrey Hepburn, Rose Byrne was born July 24, 1979, in Sydney. She launched her acting career at age 8 with the Australian Theatre for Young People and landed her first film role in 1994's Dallas Doll.

Eagled-eyed sci-fi fans will recognize Byrne as one of Senator Amidala's aides in Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002). But Byrne appeared more prominently in the 2004 historical epic Troy alongside Brad Pitt and fellow Aussie Eric Bana. Two years later, she played a confidant to the youthful French queen in director Sofia Coppola's biopic Marie Antoinette.

On television, Byrne is best known for her Golden Globe- and Emmy-nominated supporting work on the breakout cable hit "Damages," in which she plays a young attorney who's learning the ropes from her ruthless boss (Glenn Close).
