Famke Janssen
Famke's Signature

Famke Janssen took-on her first starring role in Lord of Illusions. Immediately following, she landed the female lead in the new James Bond movie, GoldenEye, in which she stars with Pierce Brosnan, the new Agent 007. GoldenEye came out to excellent reviews on November 17, 1995.

Famke's unique name means 'little girl' in Frisian. She was born in Holland, where she began her professional career as a model. From there she moved to the United States, where she has made her home since 1984. Initially settling in New York, she majored in writing and literature at Columbia University and studied acting with Harold Guskin. She then went to Los Angeles, where she continued to study acting under Roy London. Famke made her feature film debut with Jeff Goldblum in Fathers and Sons. She has completed work on her next film, The Leading Man, a low-budget independent project starring Jon Bon Jovi and Thandie Newton, and has just wrapped filming on the John Irvin directed Largo movie City of Industry with Timothy Hutton, Harvey Keitel, Stephen Dorff and Coolio.

Bond Girl Janssen Set For 'Deep Rising'
By Anita M. Busch
HOLLYWOOD (Variety)
- Famke Janssen, who played the sadomasochistic Bond girl in ``Goldeneye,'' is replacing Claire Forlani in the action thriller ``Deep Rising,'' sources said.
Forlani was dismissed Saturday during the first day of shooting in Vancouver. She had last portrayed Sean Connery's daughter in ``The Rock.'' Sources cited friction on the set.
The project, which also stars Treat Williams and Wes Studi, is about a gang of thieves aboard a luxury cruise liner who discover the ship is mysteriously empty of passengers but is occupied by a killer creature.
Stephen Sommers is directing the Disney movie from his own script and it is slated for a summer 1997 release.
