Embeth Davidtz

Embeth Davidtz, was born in America but from the age of nine, was raised in South Africa, and is bilingual, speaking English and Afrikaans. She had a major role in the politically sensitive South African made-for-television film APrivate Life, as the daughter of an interracial couple.

She moved to Los Angeles in 1992 and has appeared in a variety of films from the love interest in the third instalment of the zombie classic, Army of Darkness to starring as Helen Hirsch in Schindler's List.
