Charlotte Rampling grew up in England in the 1940s and 1950s, spending ample time across Europe. In her late teens, she began a career as a model, which quickly led to her being noticed and appearing many movies and TV shows. She first appeared an extra in The Beatles movie "A Hard Day's Night" (1964) and her official credited debut was a year later in the British comedy "Rotten to the Core" (1965). A few years into her acting career, she became a favorite of the '70s European indie film scene, with notable controversial roles in "The Damned" (1969), "The Night Porter" (1974), and "Max, Mon Amour" (1986). She made a dent in American film as well, with a role in the Woody Allen film "Stardust Memories" (1980), the Sean Connery-starring sci-fi flick "Zardoz" (1974), and the Raymond Chandler adaptation "Farewell, My Lovely" (1975). While Rampling's legacy was somewhat set in stone through her work in the '70s and '80s, she slowed her acting pace down as the century closed. In the early 2000s, she returned to more prominence, primarily in the works of Francois Ozon such as "Swimming Pool" (2003) as well as more mainstream fare like "Spy Game" (2001) and "Babylon A.D." (2008). She continued her late career resurgence with a celebrated turn in the miniseries "Restless" (BBC One 2012) and an award-winning role in "45 Years" (2015), culminating in an Oscar nomination. In 2019, it was accounced that she would co-star in Denis Villeneuve's remake of "Dune" (2020).
