Miranda Richardson stars opposite Cynthia Nixon in Starz' epic miniseries "World Without End," based upon the global bestseller by Ken Follett. Richardson also recently reprised her role as Rita Skeeter from "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" in the final films of the franchise, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" and "Part II." Next up is the comedy "Churchill: The Hollywood Years" with Christian Slater and Neve Campbell.

Miranda Richardson first startled audiences in Mike Newell's "Dance with a Stranger," in which she played Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in England. Subsequent roles confirmed her as an actress of consummate ability and consistency. In 1992, she garnered rave reviews for her performances in Neil Jordan's "The Crying Game," Mike Newell's "Enchanted April" and Louis Malle's "Damage." The New York Film Critics cited her work in all three films in naming her Best Supporting Actress. She received a Golden Globe for "Enchanted April" and was nominated for an Oscar for "Damage." In 1995, she received a second Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Vivienne Haigh Wood, the wife of poet T.S. Eliot, in Brian Gilbert's "Tom and Viv."

Films include "Get Carter" with Sylvester Stallone and Michael Caine; "Sleepy Hollow" for Tim Burton and the animation film, "Chicken Run," in which she voiced Mrs. Tweedie for Nick Park and Peter Lord. Other credits include "The Apostle" with Robert Duvall, "The Designated Mourner by Wallace Shawn," directed by David Hare; Robert Altman's "Kansas City," Steven Spielberg's "Empire of the Sun," David Cronenberg's "Spider," Stephen Daldry's "The Hours" and Conor McPherson's "The Actors." Her recent credits include "Churchill — The Hollywood Years," "The Prince and Me," "Phantom of the Opera," "The Young Victoria," "Paris Je t'aime," directed by Isabel Coixet, and "Made In Dagenham."

On television, recent exploits include a series regular role in AMC's conspiracy thriller series "Rubicon," three films for Hallmark Hall of Fame — "Merlin," "Alice" and "Snow White" — as well as Showtime's "The Big Brass Ring" and BBC's "A Dance to the Music of Time." She displayed her comedic talents in "Absolutely Fabulous" and three "Blackadder" television series, including playing Elizabeth I in the second season and the film version. She also starred in a film for Stephen Poliakoff, "Gideon's Daughter" with Emily Blunt.

The UK actress trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and subsequently performed in many plays, the highlights being Mamet's "Edmond," Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf," Terry Johnson's "Insignificance," Sam Shepard's "A Lie of the Mind" and the one-woman piece "Orlando" working with Robert Wilson.
