Wanting to be a dancer, Elizabeth Hurley
went to ballet boarding school at 12, but soon returned home. When it came time
to go to college, Hurley won a scholarship to the London Studio Centre which
taught courses for dance and theater. Soon, Hurley wore the punk rock look with
pink hair and a nose ring, but to get work, she had to change her image to one
that was castable. After college, Hurley worked in the theater and made her
screen debut in Aria (1987). Roles in Television and a film, Remando al viento
(1988), which included a young actor named Hugh Grant, soon followed. European
films followed her appearance in the BBC serial Christabel (1988) (TV). Her film
debut in a Hollywood movie was in the Wesley Snipes action drama Passenger 57
(1992). When Hugh Grant was picked up with Divine Brown, Hurley became headline
news. Added to this was the fact that she was the model representing top
cosmetics house Estée Lauder, and there was nowhere Hurley could go to get away
from the press. In 1994, Hurley and Hugh Grant set up Simian Films in
partnership with Castle Rock Entertainment. As Head of Development, Hurley found
the script and produced her first film Extreme Measures (1996), which stars Hugh
