Dutch actress Thekla Reuten speaks five languages. After graduating from Amsterdam's Academy of Dramatic Arts, she landed a starring role on the television series Wij Alexander.
Film and theater roles also followed, notably in two features that were both Academy Award-nominated for Best Foreign-Language Film; Dominique Deruddere's Ledereen beroemd! [Everybody's Famous!] and Ben Sombogaart's De Tweeling [Twin Sisters].
Ms. Reuten's other films include Tom Roberts' In Tranzit, alongside Vera Farmiga and John Malkovich; Alex Van Warmerdam's Ober [Waiter]; and Margarethe von Trotta's award-winning Rosenstrasse.
In the spring of 2006, she starred in the U.K. opposite Gael GarcÃa Bernal in the sold-out Almeida Theatre run of Federico GarcÃa Lorca's Blood Wedding, directed by Rufus Norris.
Ms. Reuten's work in U.S. film and television has included starring roles in the second series of Sleeper Cell, as a series regular, and Brett Leonard's telefilm Highlander: The Source. She will soon be seen in the highly anticipated new season of Lost, premiering in the winter of 2008.
