'''Catherine Élise "Cate" Blanchett''' (born in 1969) is an award-winning Australian actress and stage director who burst onto the international stage in 1998 in an Oscar-nominated performance as Queen Elizabeth I in ''Film/{{Elizabeth}}''.

Her most high-profile role since has been that of the elf queen Galadriel in Creator/PeterJackson's ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' trilogy, but she has also played BobDylan in ''ImNotThere'', Daisy in ''TheCuriousCaseOfBenjaminButton'', Creator/KatharineHepburn in ''TheAviator'' opposite LeonardoDiCaprio (for which she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, making her the first actor to win an Oscar for playing a real-life Oscar winner), Sheba Hart in ''Notes on a Scandal'' with Judi Dench, the completely awesome [[strike:Maid Marian]] Lady Marion Loxley in ''Film/RobinHood2010'' and [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull an oddly sexy Russian scientist]].

She is known for her smoky voice and ethereal, almost elfin face as well as her tremendous talent and ability with accents. MerylStreep has listed her as one of her favorite actresses currently working, and she has been called multiple times "the greatest actress of her generation."

* TheCameo: ''HotFuzz'' (not only uncredited but also masked).

* [[strike: [[EnglishRose English]]]] [[LandDownUnder Aussie Rose]]

* FakeRussian: Averted by her role in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull''. Her accent was noted to be pretty accurate.
* FieryRedhead
* TheHighQueen: Her roles as [[Film/{{Elizabeth}} Elizabeth I]] and [[Film/LordOfTheRings Galadriel]] pretty much embody the trope.
* LandDownUnder
* OneOfUs: She took the role of Galadriel so she could wear pointy ears, kept them, and had them bronzed.
* RapunzelHair: Although she normally wears her hair short, three of her most famous roles ([[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Galadriel]], [[TheVirginQueen Queen Elizabeth]], and [[Film/RobinHood2010 Lady Marion Loxley]]) also have her with hair worn well past her waist.
* [[ShakespearianActors Shakespearean Actor]]: Not with the [[RoyalShakespeareCompany RSC]] but has the classical background training and, yes, did Shakespeare, including Miranda (''Theatre/TheTempest'') and Ophelia (''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'') - and also the "redoubtable acting skillz."
* SlapSlapKiss: Says Cate of hubby Andrew Upton:
-->'''Cate''': He thought I was aloof and I thought he was arrogant.... but once he kissed me that was that.
* StatuesqueStunner
* SweetOnPollyOliver: Her role as BobDylan in ''ImNotThere'' created rather a few drag-king fetishes.
