Liv Tyler made an auspicious film debut with the leading role in Silent Fall,
directed by Bruce Beresford. After another lead in Empire Records,
Tyler portrayed a waitress in a local diner in Heavy, a favorite at the 1995
Sundance Film Festival. Tyler went on to shine in Bernardo Bertolucci's Stealing Beauty, Inventing The Abbotts, Armageddon
and Robert Altman's Cookie's Fortune. She recently reunited with Altman to star in
the critically acclaimed Dr. T and the Women with Richard Gere. For her role in
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Tyler and the rest of the
principal cast were nominated for Outstanding Performance by the Cast of a Theatrical
Motion Picture by the Screen Actors Guild.
Tyler's other recent work includes Onegin co-starring Ralph Fiennes, Plunkett & Macleane and One Night at McCool's
opposite Matt Dillon.
Tyler is currently in production on Kevin Smith's next film, Jersey Girl, in which she will star opposite Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. Miramax will release the film sometime next year.
