Juliet Rylance (born Juliet van Kampen; 26 July 1979) is an English actress and producer.[1]

Early life[edit]

Rylance was born in London. Her stepfather is actor and director Mark Rylance. She graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in 2002, with a BA in acting.

Career[edit]

Rylance is an Obie Award-winning actress.[2] Her first major role upon leaving RADA was as Medea in Neil LaBute's Bash: Latter-Day Plays at the Union Theatre in London. She then went on to play Perdita in The Winter's Tale and Cressida in Troilus and Cressida at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. She portrayed British writer Mary Sidney in I Am Shakespeare, written by her step-father Mark Rylance and directed by Matthew Warchus at the Chichester Festival Theatre and its UK tour. That same year, along with two of her contemporaries, David Sturzaker and director Tamara Harvey, she started her own production company, Theater of Memory. She subsequently starred in the Theater of Memory's productions of Romeo and Juliet and Bash: Latter-Day Plays, portraying Juliet and Medea respectively.[3][4]

In 2009, Rylance played Desdemona at the theater in New York City, in Othello, for which she was nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award.[5] She next appeared in the Sam Mendes-directed Bridge Project, a joint venture between the Brooklyn Academy of Music in Brooklyn and The Old Vic in London. She appeared as Rosalind and Miranda, respectively, with her husband appearing alongside her as Orlando and Ariel.[3] Rylance was awarded a 2010 Obie Award for her performance as Rosalind.[6]

In 2012, Rylance co-starred in the horror film Sinister.[7] She appeared in and produced Days and Nights, written and directed by her husband.[8][9] The film was a critical and commercial failure.

Personal life[edit]

In 2008, Rylance married actor Christian Camargo at New York City Hall. They had met over a decade earlier when he worked with her stepfather at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.[3]
