Uma Bio

Thurman will next be seen in Down a Dark Hall directed by Rodrigo Cortés, and Tim Hill's The War with Grandpa opposite Robert De Niro.

Thurman's recent television and film credits include an arc on Bravo's "Imposters," NBC's miniseries "The Slap," created by Jon Robin Baitz, and Lars Von Trier's NYMPHOMANIC: Vol. 1.

Thurman is best known for her portrayal of "Mia Wallace," a sexy mobster's wife, in Quentin Tarantino's critically lauded PULP FICTION. In 1995, she received an Academy Award(R) nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the cult classic. Referred to as Tarantino's "muse," Thurman continued to work with the director for many years and garnered Golden Globe(R) Award nominations for her role of "The Bride" in his highly successful KILL BILL film franchise. ROLLING STONE likened her to "an avenging angel out of a 1940s Hollywood melodrama."

Thurman's entrance into mainstream film began following her role as the goddess Venus in Terry Gilliam's fantasy THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN. She went on to receive critical acclaim for her portrayal of a virginal 18th century convent girl, "Cecile de Volanges," in Stephen Frears' DANGEROUS LIAISONS, opposite John Malkovich. The following year, she starred opposite Fred Ward and Maria de Medeiros in Philip Kaufman's HENRY & JUNE. Additional film credits include BATMAN & ROBIN, LES MISERABLES, PRIME with Meryl Streep, BE COOL, THE PRODUCERS and MY SUPER EX-GIRLFRIEND. She has appeared in over 50 films to date.

Thurman earned a Golden Globe(R) Award for HYSTERICAL BLINDNESS, which she produced and starred in. She received her first Emmy(R) nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Dramatic Series for her arc on NBC's series SMASH.
