Estella Dawn Warren (born December 23, 1978 in Peterborough, Ontario) is a Canadian actress, fashion model, and former synchronized swimmer, best known for her roles in Driven and Planet of the Apes.
This actress provides examples of the following tropes:
- The Cast Showoff: Warren displays her swimming skills in a very plot-unrelated scene in Driven.
- Deleted Role: Warren planned to make a big comeback with a supporting role in Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) following the flop of Kangaroo Jack, but her part - she and Adam Brody play a husband and wife who get wrapped up in the film's plot - was deleted from the final print (although Brody remains in the movie).
- Fake American: In Kangaroo Jack, she plays an American woman who moved to Australia for a semester abroad and decided to not return to the States.
- Ms. Fanservice: She's a very beautiful woman, and many of her roles are designed to take advantage of this, most notably that of Jessie in Kangaroo Jack.
- Star-Derailing Role: She hasn't had a supporting role in a blockbuster since the release of Kangaroo Jack, and only had a few more acting roles overall before troubles in her personal life saw her take a break from acting (albeit she eventually made a comeback in the mid-2010s).
