Thandie Newton

Date of birth: November 6, 1972

Place of Birth: London, England, UK

Height: 5' 2" (1.57 m)

Thandie Newton is the daughter of a Zimbabwean mother of the Shona Tribe 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 England 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 from 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 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.
