Kristin Scott Thomas biography (bio):
Kristin Scott Thomas was born in Redruth, Cornwall in 1960. She was educated at Cheltenham Ladies' College.
She speaks French fluently, having studied acting at the École nationale supérieure des arts et techniques de théâtre (ENSATT) in Paris; she previously worked in the city as an au pair. She is married to a French doctor, François Olivennes, and has three children: Hannah (1988), Joseph (1991), and George (2000). She lives with her husband and children in France.
Both her father and step-father were pilots in the Fleet Air Arm, and both died in flying accidents. She is the older sister of the actress Serena Scott Thomas.
Kristin Scott Thomas was given an OBE in the 2003 Queen's Birthday Honours list, and was also awarded the Légion d'honneur by the French government in 2005. She has also played in many TV movies, and as an actress in the theatre.
-In the British motoring program Top Gear, she is used as a standard of reference for "good taste." During the "Cool Wall" segment of the programme, presenter Jeremy Clarkson rates a car's coolness based mostly on what he thinks Kristin Scott Thomas's level of distaste for it would be. Kristin Scott Thomas made her long-awaited appearance as the "Star In A Reasonably Priced Car" on the episode broadcast on 25/02/2007. On this episode, amid excessive kow-towing from Clarkson and joking from Richard Hammond and James May, she proceeded to rubbish most of the decisions Clarkson had made over the past years of the Cool Wall. She completed her lap in a time of 1.54, placing her just above Phillip Glenister although still near the bottom of the leaderboard.
-One of Jeremy Clarkson's donkeys was named after her, perhaps showing a humorous fondness of her by Clarkson. It is called "Kristin Scott Donkey." According to Clarkson, the donkey was "the beautiful one."
-She was nominated for "Worst New Star" in the 1986 Golden Raspberry Awards for her role in Under The Cherry Moon (and lost).
-Once she performed in 1993 on Absolutely Fabulous; her part was called "Plum Berkeley."
-Katherine Clifton in The English Patient.
-Gloria Goodfellow in Keeping Mum.
