Thandie Newton: Thandie Newton is the
daughter of a Rhodesian (now Zimbabwean) mother from the Shona people and a
British father. She lived in Zambia until political unrest caused her family to
move back to the UK. She then lived in Cornwall in the southwest of Britain
until the age of 11. At that time she enrolled in London's Art Educational
School, where she studied modern dance. However, a back injury forced her to
quit dancing. This led to her auditioning for films and receiving her first role
in John Duigan's Flirting (1991). She then moved to Los Angeles, California, to
pursue acting and her then-boyfriend. However, her British accent limited the
amount of work she was getting, and she returned to Britain, where she went to
Cambridge University to study, eventually receiving a degree in anthropology.
Between semesters, she continued her acting and became noticed and in-demand for
future film roles.
