      Cara Seymour

      Cara Seymour

      Highest Rated: 100% Widow Clicquot (2023)

      Lowest Rated: 11% Beyond the Fire (2009)

      Birthday: Jan 6, 1964

      Birthplace: Essex, England, UK

      With her distinctive presence and impeccable taste in roles, actor Cara Seymour quickly became a favorite amongst viewers and critics alike. Born in Essex, England, Seymour attended the University of Cambridge, where she originally intended to study education. Soon, however, she fell in love with theater, so much so that after graduation, she and six friends formed a troupe known as Trouble & Strife. The group would tour around Europe for seven years, even earning a Time Out award for the play "Now and at the Hour of Our Death" in 1988. Seymour also went on to appear in a New York production of Mike Leigh's "Ecstasy," a performance that won her an Obie and caught the attention of director Katherine Dieckmann, who cast Seymour in her Southern Gothic film "A Good Baby" (2000). Seymour next appeared as a victimized prostitute in Mary Harron's "American Psycho" (2000). Though the MPAA slapped the film with an NC-17 rating, Seymour took pride in personally appealing the decision, speaking publicly about the importance of recognizing satire, and of the hypocrisy of censoring sex while celebrating violence. Nonetheless, her performance was impressive and led to more prominent roles in acclaimed films like "Adaptation" (2002), "Gangs of New York" (2002), and "An Education" (2009). In 2014, Seymour donned a nun's habit, starring with Clive Owen in the historical series "The Knick" (Cinemax, 2014-15).
