Juno Violet Temple (born 21 July 1989) is an English actress. She has starred in films such as The Other Boleyn Girl, Wild Child, Atonement, Kaboom, St Trinian's, Little Birds, Killer Joe, The Dark Knight Rises, Afternoon Delight, Maleficent and Horns.

Early life[edit]

Juno Temple was born in London, and is the daughter of producer Amanda Pirie and film director Julien Temple.[1][2] Her aunt is politician Nina Temple. She grew up in Somerset, England, and attended Enmore Primary School, Bedales School, and King's College, Taunton. She has two younger brothers, Leo Temple and Felix Temple.

Film career[edit]

Temple began her career as a child actress in the 1997 film Vigo: Passion for Life, a film about Jean Vigo.[3] Another film directed by her father starred Juno in 2000 when she played Emma Southey in Pandaemonium.

She has won critical praise for several supporting roles. One reviewer said that she played her part in Notes on a Scandal with "petulance and angst",[4] while her performance as Lola Quincey in Atonement has been called "impressive".[5] She auditioned to play Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,[6] though the role ultimately went to Evanna Lynch. Some of her other film credits include Celia in St. Trinian's and St. Trinian's II: The Legend of Fritton's Gold, Drippy (Jennifer Logan) in Wild Child, and Jane Parker in The Other Boleyn Girl.[7] In 2009, Temple starred as Eema in the comedy Year One alongside Jack Black and Michael Cera. She also played Anna in Jaco Van Dormael's Mr. Nobody and Di Radfield in the adaption of Sheila Kohler's Cracks.

She starred in Abe Sylvia's Dirty Girl, which premiered on 12 September 2010, at the Toronto International Film Festival, co-starring Milla Jovovich, Jeremy Dozier, William H. Macy, Mary Steenburgen and Dwight Yoakam.

Temple has also appeared in Kid Harpoon's music video "Milkmaid" and Plushgun's "Just Impolite".[8]

In 2010, she appeared in a sketch for FunnyOrDie called "Cycop" which premiered on 12 July 2010 and featured the protagonist, from the indie film The Mother of Invention in a poorly made film of his creation. The sketch starred Temple, Andrew Bowser, Ryan Cartwright and Zelda Williams.[9] She also had a major role in the film Kaboom, first winner of the Queer Palm.

In 2011, Temple appeared in Paul W.S. Anderson's 3D film adaptation of The Three Musketeers, as Anne of Austria, the Queen Consort of France. The film also starred Matthew Macfadyen, Logan Lerman, Orlando Bloom, Milla Jovovich, Christoph Waltz, and Mads Mikkelsen. The same year, she also appeared as Dottie in Killer Joe, a role that required full frontal nudity. She appeared in The Dark Knight Rises (2012), as a "street-smart Gotham girl."[10] She also portrayed Diane in the lesbian lycanthropic tale Jack & Diane.[11]

Temple appeared in the Elgin James film Little Birds. James offered her the choice of playing either of the two female leads and she chose to portray Lily, citing that she connected with the character more and "wanted to set her free".[12] Temple and James worked on the film together for two years, becoming close. They continue to collaborate[13] and in interviews refer to each other as "best friends"[14] and "family".[15] James has said he made Little Birds to honor the strong women in his life, including Temple.[16]

In February 2013, Temple won the EE Rising Star BAFTA Award, voted for by the public.[17][18]

Personal life[edit]

Temple lives in Los Feliz, Los Angeles with her boyfriend, actor Michael Angarano.[19]
