Daughter of British actress Jane Birkin and French singer Serge Gainsbourg, Charlotte was born in London in 1971 and raised in Paris. She made her musical debut with her father with the duet 'Lemon Incest' at the age of twelve. She is also a César and Cannes Film Festival award-winning acress, considered to be controversial Danish director Lars von Trier's muse after appearing in 'Antichrist' (2009), 'Melancholia' (2012) and 'Nymphomaniac Vol. I. & Vol. II.' (2014).
Bruno Ganz was born in 1941 in Zurich, Switzerland. He made his debut in theatre where he gained his reputation as a solid young actor. He is known as the 'sad-looking leading man of the 'New German Wave'', known for doomed, self-tortured protagonists. Ganz most internationally recognized role was his portrayal of Adolf Hitler in the 2004 Oscar nominated 'Downfall'.
Jeff Goldblum was born in Pennsylvania, USA in 1952. He began his acting career onstage, moving onto the big screen in the mid-1970s, notably having one line in Woody Allen’s ‘Annie Hall’ (1977). His breakthrough role came in 1986 when he starred in David Cronenberg’s ‘The Fly.’ Goldblum has also appeared in ‘Jurassic Park’ (1993), 'Independence Day' (1996), and ‘The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou’ (2004).
Gianni Di Gregorio was born Trastevere, Rome, where he still lives and works. Originally enrolling at university to study modern literature, Gianni left before graduation to attend the Academy of Performing Arts in Rome. After three years of theatre, he decided to begin working in film as an assistant director, before moving into screenwriting. His is best known for 'The Salf of Life' (2008), which he made at the age of 60.
After a few small roles and a promising lead performance in 'October Sky' (1999), Jake Gyllenhaal took a chance on a young first-time director and his bizarre, off-beat script. 'Donnie Darko' (2001) – which also starred his sister Maggie – gave the young actor cult kudos. He followed it with solid performances in 'Lovely & Amazing' (2001) and 'The Good Girl' (2002). 'The Day After Tomorrow' (2004) showed he could carry a lead in bigger Hollywood productions, but his Jack Twist in 'Brokeback Mountain' (2005) showed just how compelling he could be. He deserved his BAFTA and although he has been eclipsed by Heath Ledger, his performance is no less impressive. Then came the series of roles that carved out his place as a charismatic leading man: 'Jarhead' (2005), 'Zodiac and Rendition' (both 2007). He didn’t fit in 'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' (2010), just as he is fine but surplus to requirements in 'Everest' (2015). He is solid and watchable in 'End of Watch' (2012), 'Prisoners' and 'Enemy' (both 2013), but exceptional in 'Nightcrawler' (2014). His physicality in that film is more impressive than the transformation for 'Southpaw' (2015). He is understated in Tom Ford’s 'Nocturnal Animals'.
