Olga Kurylenko

Biography

Olga Kurylenko came to international prominence when she starred opposite Daniel Craig in Quantum Of Solace, directed by Marc Forster. She garnered excellent reviews as Camille, a woman focused on avenging the murder of her family.

In 2012, Kurylenko completed production on the Universal feature Oblivion where she stars opposite Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman. The film is slated for a worldwide release on April 14th 2013. Most recently, she wrapped production on the second season of Mitch Glazer's critically acclaimed Starz series "Magic City" where she stars as Vera Evans, wife to Ike, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

This year, Kurylenko will be seen in To The Wonder, the new Terrence Malick which premiered in competition at The Venice Film Festival in September 2012 and was also screened at Toronto. Kurylenko plays the lead in Malick's film, which co-stars Javier Bardem, Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams. Critics have singled out her performance; Variety wrote 'the radiant Kurylenko... gives a physically vivacious turn with a deeply melancholy core', Collider commented 'Kurylenko has never been better', and Indiewire observed 'Kurylenko is a revelation.

In late 2012, Kurylenko could be seen in Seven Psychopaths opposite Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Christopher Walken, Tom Waits and Abbie Cornish. The film was released on 12th October in the US and on December 7th in the UK. Also upcoming, Kurylenko will be seen in The Expatriate, opposite Aaron Eckhart directed by Philip Stolzl.

2011 saw Kurylenko take the female lead in the emotional story of love, betrayal and personal sacrifice, set in the time of the Spanish Civil War, entitled There Be Dragons, from director Roland Joffe and Michale Boganim's Land Of Oblivion about the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

Kurylenko took her first English-speaking role in the film adaptation of the graphic novel, Hitman. Directed by Xavier Gens and produced by Luc Besson, Kurylenko gave a powerful performance as Nika Boronina. In 2008 she starred alongside Mark Wahlberg in John Moore's Max Payne and in the role of Mina Harud in John Beck Hofmann's Tyranny. In 2010 she was seen in the Warner Bros/Pathe production of Centurion, an action thriller set in ancient Rome by director Neil Marshall, alongside Dominic West and Michael Fassbender.
Her early career was established in France. She gave her debut performance as a leading actress, in the role of Iris, in Diane Bertrand's L'annulaire (released in the UK and US as The Ring Finger). She followed this with a role starring alongside Elijah Wood in Paris Je T'aime, an independent film in which a cooperative of acclaimed international directors told their stories of Paris. In 2006, Kurylenko played Sofia in Eric Barbier's acclaimed thriller, Le Serpent, co-starring with French luminaries Yvan Attal, Clovis Cornillac and Pierre Richard.

Whilst training as an actress, she had also achieved success in the worlds of fashion and beauty - working in Paris, Milan, New York and London. By the age of 18 she had graced the covers of magazines such as Vogue and Elle.

Kurylenko lives in London. She is fluent in French, English, Russian, and has also acted in German and Spanish.
