Biography 
  • Minnie Driver
  • . Minnie Driver is a master of accents.  She is so perfected that most find it hard to believe she's English, not a New York/New Jersey girl. 

    Minnie Driver has other talents including singing and playing guitar. 

    After receiving her drama degree she had a part in a BBC mini series and her own series "My Good Friend". 

    Driver's first screen role, for which she had to gain twenty pounds, was in the coming-of-age hit "Circle of Friends".  This launched her career and made her a much sought after actress. 

    Driver followed with such films as "Goldeneye", "Sleeper", "Big Night", "Gross Pointe Blank", "Good Will Hunting" and "Hard Rain".
