Biography


Talented, witty, attractive, charming, and consistently able to display convincing portrayals in every character she played, Rachel Weisz indeed possesses all the qualities needed to place herself firmly among other influential British thespians to acquire the same respect and laudation they have been showered with. A lovely blend of Jewish, Hungarian, Austrian, and Italian descent who was born into an intellectual family of an inventor and psychoanalyst on March 7, 1971 in London, England, she is the first child of George Weisz and Edith Ruth whose relationship as husband and wife did not go on too well throughout their eldest daughter's early life. Probably tried to keep them bound together or perhaps just wanted to gain their full attention in this dark situation, she frequently did something rebellious which caused her to pass through a series of schools in consequence. Still, her disruptive behavior could not prevent her parents to have a separation when she turned 15.

By the time she finished her high school study at St. Paul's Girls' School in 1989, Rachel already had her mind set to become an actress, a profession Edith had often encouraged the teen to carry out after making her a model at the age of 14. Taking English Literature major at Trinity Hall of Cambridge University, she then began to be involved in various student stage productions, like "The Romans in Britain" and "Removal", even founded a theater group, Talking Tongues, together with her college friends. Through this drama troupe, the hazel-eyed beauty wonderfully received her first accolade when one of their improvised pieces entitled "Slight Possession" unexpectedly won a Guardian Student Drama Award at the Edinburgh Festival in 1991.
