Continuing to emerge as one of the industry's most engaging talents, Anne Hathaway is an accomplished actress, singer, and dancer.
She memorably starred as Princess Mia Thermopolis, opposite Julie Andrews, in Garry Marshall's The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, both of which were boxoffice hits.
Ms. Hathaway's other films include Tommy O'Haver's Ella Enchanted, Douglas McGrath's Nicholas Nickleby (for which she shared, with her fellow actors, the National Board of Review's Best Acting by an Ensemble award), and Mitch Davis' The Other Side of Heaven. Prior to working in films, she attracted industry attention with her acclaimed performance in the television series Get Real.
While in high school, she was nominated for the Rising Star Award, sponsored by New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse. She studied acting at the Playhouse, and was the first and only teenager ever admitted to the intensive acting program at NYC's award-winning Barrow Group. She also studied in the musical theatre program of the Collaborative Arts Project (CAP 21), which is affiliated with New York University.
Additionally, Ms. Hathaway studied dance at the Broadway Dance Center; is a first soprano, and has performed twice at Carnegie Hall with the All-Eastern U.S. High School Honors Chorus; and, in 2002, received the prestigious Clarence Derwent Award following her performance in the City Center "Encores!" series production of Carnival.
In January 2005, she traveled to Cambodia to participate in a documentary production organized by Angelina Jolie. The project placed 25 participants in various locations on the same day, with each videotaping their surroundings at a specific "moment in time" (the working title for the documentary).
