Famke Janssen Biography:

Famke Janssen was born in Amsterdam, Holland. Her two sisters are blonde and blue-eyed, while she is the only brunette. "I felt different born into a family with two sisters who are blonde and blue-eyed, with me being the only brunette". She began her professional career as a model in Amsterdam but work for Chanel and other clients brought had her packing and on a jet plane for New York City.

Life as a model wasn't intellectually stimulating for Ms. Janssen, so she enrolled at Columbia University to study writing and literature. Famke is quite intelligent, and says her favorite authors are the Brontë sisters, Vladimir Nabokov, and Jean Rhys. Just two years later, though, her career in acting had begun to take off, so Famke left Columbia. She began studying acting with Harold Guskin.

She then went to Los Angeles, where she continued to study acting under Roy London. Famke made her feature film debut with Jeff Goldblum in "Fathers and Sons". But her turn in GoldenEye (opposite Pierce Brosnan) as the sexy Xenia Onatopp brought her into the spotlight. After the role, Famke took several supporting roles in many films - including Celebrity (with Leonardo DiCaprio), The Faculty (with Jordana Brewster), Deep Rising, and The House on Haunted Hill. Famke was a shoo-in for the role of Jean Grey in the heavily anticipated film, X-Men. The films performed quite well at the box office, and brought Famke further acclaim.

Off the screen, does Famke have a wildly romantic side? "I've never dated," says the beautiful and sexy woman. "I've always just had boyfriends." Famke was married to Todd Williams until 2000, when the couple got divorced. Currently, Famke does not have any boyfriends.

Recently she has appeared opposite the likes of Eddie Murphy, Michael Douglas, and Jon Favreau in a wide range of movies, from comedy to thriller. Coming up, Famke will reprise the roll of Jean Grey in X-Men 2 (2003).
