Geraldine Chaplin has enjoyed a long and artistically daring career in international cinema. Since her Golden Globe-nominated breakthrough role in "Doctor Zhivago" for Most Promising Newcomer, Chaplin has delivered memorable performances in films such as Richard Lester's Musketeers pictures of the '70s and the acclaimed drama "City of No Limits," for which she won the Spanish Academy Award — the Goya — for Best Supporting Actress. She received her second Golden Globe nomination (Best Supporting Actress) for Robert Altman's "Nashville" and a third for playing her own grandmother in "Chaplin," opposite Robert Downey Jr.

For Alan Rudolph's "Welcome to L.A.," with David Carradine, Harvey Keitel and Sissy Spacek, Chaplin was nominated for a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress. Teaming with Rudolph again on "Remember My Name," costarring Anthony Perkins and Jeff Goldblum, she won the Best Actress prizes of the Paris Film Festival and Miami Film Festival. Chaplin has received lifetime achievement awards at the Las Palmas Film Festival, Munich Film Festival, Malaga Spanish Film Festival, Capri Hollywood Festival and the Giffoni Film Festival.

Other notable film credits include Martin Scorsese's "The Age of Innocence," Franco Zeffirelli's "Jane Eyre," Jodie Foster's "Home for the Holidays," Pedro Almodóvar's "Talk to Her," Alfonso Arau's "The Trick in the Sheet" and "The Orphanage," for which she received a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the Goya Awards.

Chaplin was recently seen in "The Wolfman," opposite Benicio Del Toro. Upcoming film appearances include voicing a role in the animated feature "O Apostolo," the thriller "The Monk," co-starring Vincent Cassel, the romantic comedy "Connemara Days," with Brendan Gleeson and Aidan Quinn, and the mystery "Four Roses."

When she isn't working, Chaplin lives by the beach in Miami.
