Naomi Watts Biography
Naomi Watts (born September 28, 1968) is an English-born Australian actress and producer. Watts was born in Shoreham-by-Sea, England, but migrated with her mother to Australia in 1982 after the death of her father. She studied acting with Nicole Kidman in Sydney, first appearing in television commercials and then the drama series Home and Away in 1988 in the role of Julie Gibson. Her first big break came with the 1995 movie Tank Girl with the part of Jet Girl.

In 2001, Watts appeared in David Lynch's Mulholland Dr., a performance which won high praise but failed to gain her an Academy Award nomination. The quality and size of Watts' roles improved after Mulholland Dr., and she starred in the highly successful US remake of The Ring, a Japanese horror movie. In 2004 she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress for her performance in the film 21 Grams.
