    (September 5, 1976- )
    Born in Leiderdorp, Netherlands
    Portrayed Melisandre of Asshai (The Red Woman) on Game of Thrones
    Appeared in ‘Suzy Q,’ ‘Undercover Kitty / Miss Minoes,’ ‘Valkyrie,’ ‘Repo Men,’ ‘Brimstone,’ and ‘Race (2016, as Leni Riefenstahl)’
    World Wildlife Fund ambassador (2009– )
    Had a child with Guy Pearce (August 29, 2016)
    She described her pre-adolescent self as a ‘shy grey mouse.’
    She is a fan of The Simpsons (on which she was a guest voice in 2015 as Milhouse Van Houten's cousin -- a casting decision reportedly inspired by her last name).
    Originally asked to test for the part of Cersei Lannister, she was on the set of ‘Intruders’ that season.
    While she had a significant part in ‘Body of Lies’ (with Leonardo DiCaprio), all of her scenes were cut out of the final product.
    ‘Playing evil is just not interesting. I don’t think anyone who does evil stuff thinks they’re doing evil stuff. That’s the scary part.’
    Raised on silent films – and being a Laurel and Hardy fan – she interviewed that she preferred being in scenes where there was no speaking.
    Performing seems to run in the family — her parents cut their teeth in the Dutch television scene.
    Paul Verhoeven's ultimate endorsement of her in ‘Black Book’ (where she did all her own soprano vocals), versus Sharon Stone in ‘Basic Instinct’: ‘Carice can really act.’
    Having learned English mainly from her father’s Beatles collection, she is also fluent in German and French.
    Much to the shock of her agent, she has little interest in relocating to the U.S.: 'If Hollywood offers me a great part, of course I'll take it, but I just don't want to live there.'
