Background - The eldest of five children, Kristin grew up near Land's End in Cornwall, England. She attended Cheltenham Ladies College, then entered a convent, then trained to be a teacher at the Central School of Speech and Drama. Drama was more to her liking. She took a holiday in Paris and decided to stay, taking a job as an au pair. There she continued her drama study at L'Ecole Nationale des Arts et Techniques de Theatre.
Film Debut - Having played bit parts, Kristin was offered the lead role of the rebellious heiress in "Under the Cherry Moon". Her co-star was TAFKAP (The Artist Formerly Known As Prince). The only direction her career could possibly go from there was up.
Critical Acclaim - Having studied in Paris and being fluent in French, Kristin appeared in many French films. Scott Thomas became known to the public with her portrayal of Fiona, the aristocrat obsessed with the character played by Hugh Grant in "Four Weddings and a Funeral". However, she captured audiences in "The English Patient" playing Katherine Clifton, the married aristocrat who finds love in the arms of the Hungarian cartographer-adventurer, played by Ralph Fiennes. This role garnered many award nominations.
Personal - Kristin Scott Thomas is married to a French obstetrician, Francois Oliviennes. They have a daughter, Hannah and a son, Joseph.
