Sienna Guillory Biography
Born in Fulham, London, Sienna Tiggy Guillory is the daughter of Cuban-born guitarist Isaac Guillory and his first wife, Tina. She has a brother named Jace, and also a much younger half-sister and half-brother, Eleanor and Jacob.
Sienna grew up in a Bohemian household in London and later North Norfolk, surrounded by performers, so it seemed natural that she took up acting. Sienna Guillory made her screen debut in the British TV series Riders (1993) - Sienna was talent-spotted for the role while still at Gresham's School. Though the role was small, she made her mark. Her performance landed her in another small role in the miniseries The Buccaneers. She took a short break from acting in 1995, to continue with her studies, working as a waitress to pay her way. At the age of twenty-one, she returned home to Norfolk after filming an independent movie in Russia, bringing a friend, a ballerina who wanted to become a model. Sienna went with her friend to an agency, Select Models, which signed both of them on the spot.
Guillory as Jill Valentine in the action/horror film Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Sienna Guillory became one of Britain's most sought after models in the four years she worked in modelling. In 2000, readers of Esquire magazine voted her Britain's Most Eligible Woman. And in 2002, she was number 89 on Maxim's list of The 100 Sexiest Women. But it was acting she was interested in, and to study drama she took classes at the New World School of the Arts and the Paris Conservatoire. By the time she returned to the screen in 2000 with a thriller, Sorted, she had developed a style of her own. Soon, Sienna took to Hollywood, with movies like The Time Machine and Resident Evil: Apocalypse. However, Sienna is still apprehensive about Hollywood, knowing how fickle producers and directors can be. She commented "That experience of Hollywood taught me a lot, but I still feel like I'm a Hollywood virgin."
Sienna has been called a rising star. However, she would rather be called an actor than a star and eschews star status. In an interview on the Chatshow Network in 2000, she said what she most liked about acting was its therapeutic quality. Many actors are lured by fame and fortune, but Sienna enjoys her acting for more humble reasons.
Her career has not been without controversy. For instance, she made headlines by criticizing fellow actress Kate Beckinsale for undergoing breast enhancement surgery.
Sienna Guillory was married to the British actor Nick Moran from July, 1997, until 2000. She later married the actor Enzo Cilenti, and they live mostly in London.
Guillory made her first appearance on the small screen in 1993, with the UK television series Riders, and followed it up with The Buccaneers, opposite Mira Sorvino. Since 1995, she took a break from acting and started working as a model for the agency, Select Models. As a model, she worked for respected labels like Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, Paul Smith, and also the face of Hugo Boss's fragrance campaign for three years. She returned to acting in 2000, by beating 200 hopefuls, with the BBC television series Take a Girl Like You. She garnered critical acclaim for playing the coveted role of the virginal heroine, Jenny Bunn, in the series, based on Kingsley Amis' novel of the same name.
Her potential as an elite actress is evident in the quality of the roles that she has attracted. Guillory is best known for her role as Jill Valentine in Resident Evil Apocalypse and in the TV miniseries Helen of Troy, opposite Rufus Sewell, enacting the title role of Helen, considered to be the most beautiful woman to have graced the earth. About the latter, she has said, "I can't think of a bigger compliment than to be cast as the woman whose beauty has become legendary." The role of Helen required some partial nudity. Though Guillory didn't mind too much, she is quoted in Playboy magazine as saying that she "didn't like [her] nipples showing because they [looked] like targets.
Guillory took to the big screen as a natural progression. She starred in movies like The Time Machine, Principles of Lust and Love Actually, amongst others. But it was Resident Evil: Apocalypse, which Guillory did with Milla Jovovich, that gave her a firm footing in Hollywood. She beat out 2000 hopefuls to play Arya, an elven princess in Eragon, the film adaption of the novel by Christopher Paolini. She is also supposedly involved in the filming of Resident Evil: Extinction, but there has been much speculation as to whether or not she is really in the movie due to conflicting statements from various sources. The latest news is an official statement from Screen Gems (August 28, 2006) which suggests that she is, due to casual mention of her name among others.
