Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An almond-eyed and otherwise prim-featured beauty with a jawline to die for, Izabella Scorupco first emerged in her native Poland as a teenage model and then a punky pop singer before committing herself fully to the world of acting. In the late 1980s, director Staffan Hildebrand plucked her from relative obscurity for a part in his tender, melodramatic romance "Nobody Loves Like Us." Portraying a girl on the verge of womanhood who comes across her first moment of seemingly true love, Scorupco immediately stood out as a performer of spunky, unadulterated, and downright authentic sensuality. In '95, after just a handful of performances in Polish films, she caught the eye of the producers behind the James Bond franchise, who were gearing up to re-launch the series after a six-year hiatus and were in search of a Bond girl capable of exuding contemporary sex appeal. As such, Scorupco landed the role of the brainy but fun-loving computer programmer Natalya Simonova in the racy post-Cold War 007 adventure, "Goldeneye," which turned out to be one of franchise's most popular entries.

Notes

"I'm a boring person, because I have a child and I love to be with her as much as possible. One of the most exciting things for me was to go to the Carousel of Hope Ball -- I saw Ricky Martin! And he was hot! Really hot. Ricky's one of my daughter's idols. She loves Britney, the Backstreet Boys, everything."-Scorupco
