Jones, Catherine Zeta 1969 --
Catherine Zeta Jones Biography and FilmographyActress. Catherine Zeta-Jones was born on September 25, 1969 and raised in Swansea, Wales. Born to a working class family, Catherine displayed all of the traits of a true entertainer - she became an accomplished singer and dancer at a young age. Her first role ever was in the musical Annie, and then roles in other musicals followed. She became a member of an actor's guild by the time she was 15. Not long after that she landed her first leading role; she played Peggy Sawyer in West End production of 42nd Street. After appearing in a movie directed by the French director Philippe De Broca's Scheherazade, Catherine signed to play a part in a British TV series The Darling Buds of May. This role got Catherine enough recognition to become a star, at least in the U.K. After starring in an English National Opera production of Street Scenes, Catherine decided to move on, this time to Hollywood. After starring in some TV shows and movies, Catherine was discovered by Steven Spielberg who saw her performance in a 1996 titanic miniseries. Spielberg recommended her to the director Martin Campbell, who was to direct The Mask of Zorro. Even though Mask of Zorro was a silly and a cheap attempt at a movie, Catherine made a great impression on the audiences and the critics. Catherine Zeta-Jones's status quickly rose to that of a mainstream actress when she continued to star in such movies as Entrapment (with Sean Connery) and High Fidelity, directed by Steven Frears. There is no doubt that Catherine Zeta-Jones is here to stay, all though it is hoped that she starts to use caution in picking her movies; she starred in Jan de Bont's much awaited remake, The Haunting, which proved to be a real disappointment to critics and audiences alike. Maybe Catherine is enjoying her success too carelessly, and maybe she can still learn a thing or two from actors who pick their roles with caution, like Leonardo DiCaprio. Catherine Zeta-Jones should allow us savor her talent.
