Caroline Goodall

Caroline Goodall began her career on the British stage before embarking on a successful career as a supporting player on the international film scene. Her American breakthrough came with her casting as the wife of reluctant adult Peter Pan in "Hook" (1990), after which she turned in solid performances in films including "Schindler's List" (1993) and "Disclosure" (1994). Her "mom" role in the super popular "Princess Diaries" films (2002, 2004) raised her profile and led to a string of similar castings in family films like "Chasing Liberty" (2004), though her visits to big budget Hollywood were regularly tempered by independent film dramas and overseas productions in Europe and Australia. In every respect, Goodall proved herself a competent and dependable character actress comfortable in any genre or medium.
