  • Was considered for the role of Jane Smith in Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005).
  • 1995: Nominated for Best Female Performance by the Melbourne Green Room Awards, for the Belvoir St Theatre Company's production of "Hamlet".
  • Was originally going to play the role of Anna in Mike Nichols's latest film Closer (2004/I), but due to her second pregnancy she had to drop out, so it was recast with Julia Roberts instead.
  • Appeared next to Hugo Weaving in 9 different projects: "Bordertown" (1995) (mini), "Drama School" (2000), Little Fish (2005), The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003), The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age (2004) (VG), The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002), The Making of 'The Lord of the Rings' (2002) (V), Quest for the Ring (2001) (TV).
  • In "The Lord of the Rings", she worked with Elijah Wood and Sean Astin, who played "Frodo" and "Sam", respectively.
