Creator: Cate Blanchett

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 Elizabeth.

Her most high-profile role since has been that of the elf queen Galadriel in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy, but she has also played Bob Dylan in I'm Not There, Daisy in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator opposite Leonardo DiCaprio (for which she won her first 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 Lady Marion Loxley in Robin Hood (2010), Colonel-Doctor Irina Spalko in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Jasmine Francis in Blue Jasmine, for which she won her second Academy Award, this time for Best Actress.

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