Jacqueline Susan McKenzie (born 24 October 1967)[1] is a classically trained Australian actress of stage and screen.

Early life[edit]

Born in Sydney, Australia, Jacqueline attended Wenona School in North Sydney until 1983 then moved to Pymble Ladies' College,[2] where she graduated in 1985 with her Higher School Certificate. Known at school for her fine singing voice, Jacqueline was cast as "Nancy" [3]in Oliver! then in Godspell (both a co-productions with Shore School) and later in Brigadoon (a co-production with Knox Grammar School), sharing the stage with then schoolboy, Hugh Jackman.

Career[edit]

Early Years[edit]

Jacqueline studied for a Bachelor of Arts Degree at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Whilst at University, she began modeling.[4] Represented by Cameron's Management, she worked in both print and television media. She also took regular singing lessons with prominent Australian vocal coach Bob Tasman-Smith. In 1987, Jacqueline was cast as the lead in the pilot of television series All The Way alongside Ben Mendelsohn, Robert Mammone, Rowena Wallace and Martin Sacks. During this time, she came to the attention of the premier casting agent in Australia, Liz Mullinar, who had cast Judy Davis in My Brilliant Career and Nicole Kidman in Dead Calm. Following advice from Liz, Jacqueline auditioned for the prestigious National Institute of Dramatic Art and was accepted. Opting out of both her Arts degree and All The Way, Jacqueline attended NIDA in 1988. She graduated in December 1990.

1991 to 1995[edit]

In 1991, Jacqueline was awarded "Best Newcomer Award"[5] from the Sydney Theatre Critics Circle, which recognized her chameleon-like ability and her consistently high caliber work in theatre productions Child Dancing (as Julie-Ann); Master Builder (as Kaja); Twelfth Night (as Viola) and Rebecca (as Mrs de Winter). During rehearsals for Rebecca, director George Ogilvie allowed Jacqueline time off to audition for a new Australian Independent feature film called Romper Stomper set to star Russell Crowe, who had casting approval on the film. She was subsequently cast in the film and went on to win Best Actress award at the Film Critics Circle of Australia.[6] Russell would later say "Jacqui's range as an actor disappears over the horizon. And I'm not sure it can actually be defined. When I first saw her, in the play "Rebecca", I saw an actor whom I thought was blowing me on the skin from the inside. She is an actor who is both delicate and magical."[7] In her "nothing short of stunning" film debut in Romper Stomper,[8] Jacqueline was described as "especially shining in her courage, truth and skill." [9] The role also garnered her attention overseas, where she won Best Actress at the 1992 Stockholm International Film Festival for her "stark and non-sentimental portrayal of a young woman whose life has turned into a desperate chase for all she has lost: love, serenity, identity. Her character plays an essential part in creating the inexorable force and impact of the film."[10] Over the next couple of years, she came to be regarded as one of Australia's most promising young actresses of stage and screen, showcasing a "phenomenal emotional range." .[11]

In 1994, Jacqueline starred alongside David Wenham, Geoffrey Rush and Richard Roxburgh in Shakespeare's Hamlet, directed by Neil Armfield, for Belvoir St Theatre, Sydney. This sellout production was a critical, award winning success[12] with Jacqueline's performance "so exquisitely pitched it could have shattered glass".[13] "Jacqueline McKenzie’s fragile Ophelia, dressed in cottontails and a tail-coat, turning the stage into a mind-state of shattered glass. Her presence awesomely palpable because of its sheer intangibility...[14] The production went on to tour to Melbourne but Jacqueline was unable to continue due to other work commitments. (Cate Blanchett took over the role of Ophelia for the tour).

Jacqueline's performance in Hamlet was followed by her role as Joan of Arc in Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan, directed by Gale Edwards for the Sydney Theatre Company at the Sydney Opera House.[15] This was the first time Saint Joan had been staged in Australia since the Zoe Caldwell production in 1962. Regarded as one of "the most revealing tests of an actress",[16] and as "the female Hamlet",[5] Edwards' production was both a critical and box office sensation with Jacqueline's performance unanimously acclaimed: "This play stands or falls on the performance of St Joan and McKenzie is simply superb." [17] "From the moment she enters, she sets the stage ablaze. McKenzie is a Joan to make the theatrical heavens rejoice... McKenzie offers us Joan in all her innocence, ignorance, joyful goodness that seems to light her from within and, almost until the end, a youthful sense of fun. Her slight stature can seem waif thin, piteously vulnerable; but raging into battle she’s tough and sturdy, a young woman of intense and convincing action. Always in focus, like an unwavering flame, is McKenzie’s Joan the Maid..."[18] and "Here is a Joan with such fortitude and faith that seems hardly possible to exist within such a delicate frame. McKenzie’s waif-like image conceals remarkable strength, and an almost inexhaustible supply of emotion. It is a Joan to inspire the tamest among us to stand up as individuals, and listen to the voices inside of us. Shaw himself would have been reluctantly impressed.”[19]

Described by Head of NIDA, John Clarke, as "A chameleon"[20] "one of the most talented actresses we have produced... she's an absolute dynamo, a powerhouse,"[21] Jacqueline had fast earned a reputation [22]as one of the most versatile actresses of her generation, taking on varied and often difficult roles. Equally adept in drama or comedy, she was described as the "Judy Davis of her generation (or funnily enough, the green eyed American actor Meg Ryan)"[23] In 1992, Ben Elton cast her as the lead role of "Rachel", the feisty environmentalist, in the adaptation of his hit novel Stark (novel). The mini-series was a BBC /ABC comedy, was directed by Nadia Tass and co-starred Ben Elton and Colin Friels. Jacqueline received an Australian Film Institute Award nomination for Best Actress in a Miniseries for the role. The same year (1993), McKenzie scored a Best Actress in a Feature Film nomination for her comedic turn In the indie comedy, "This Won't Hurt a Bit!", playing "Vanessa Presscott"- a the nerdy English ingénue with a speech impediment. In 1994, Jacqueline reunited with director George Ogilvie (who had directed her in Rebecca and Twelfth Night) to play the lead role of Dancy Smith in the adaptation of Kylie Tennant's famous depression-era drama The Battlers. The mini-series co-starred Gary Sweet and played on the Seven Network. Jacqueline was nominated again for Best Actress in a TV Drama at the Australian Film Institute 1994 awards. That same year, Jacqueline was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress in the feature film Traps, directed by Pauline Chan. Playing the French girl living in Colonial Vietnam, Jacqueline got to showcase her versatility by speaking in both French and Vietnamese for the role.

In 1995, Jacqueline made Australian Film Institute history[24] by winning the Beyond Best Actress in a Leading Role for Angel Baby and the Beyond Best Actress Award in a TV Drama for Halifax f.p.: Lies of the Mind.[25] She also won the prestigious Silver Logie for Most Outstanding Actress [26] at the Logie Awards for her role in Halifax f.p.. It was for playing the young lover "Kate", opposite John Lynch's "Harry" in the Michael Rymer helmed drama Angel Baby, that Jacqueline received international acclaim: The LA Weekly reviewed: "McKenzie is a find. Whether using answers on the Wheel of Fortune as a kind of daily horoscope, or cringing in terror as the upright legs of chairs in an empty restaurant seem to whisper at her, she is blazingly equal to the extremes of animal panic and hyperconscious insight that are the north and south of this movie's humane compass.".[27] In 1996, Jacqueline was awarded "Australian Star of the Year" at the Australian Movie Convention.[28]

1996 to 2003[edit]

Jacqueline ventured to the USA where she starred in films such as Deep Blue Sea (1999)[29] directed by Renny Harlin[30] with Samuel L Jackson, Thomas Jane and Michael Rapaport; Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (2002)[31] with Sandra Bullock, Ashley Judd, Ellen Burstyn, Kiersten Warren and James Garner; Freak Weather, with Aida Turturro and John Carroll Lynch; Love from Ground Zero with Simon Baker and Pruitt Taylor Vince, as well as tele-movie When Billie Beat Bobby, starring Holly Hunter and Ron Silver.[32] She starred in the UK independent films Eisenstein with Simon McBurney and Kiss Kiss (Bang Bang) with Stellan Skarsgard, Chris Penn and Paul Bettany.

In 2001, Jacqueline made her US Theatre debut, starring as "Rita" in Willy Russell's Educating Rita, at the Williamstown Theatre Festival directed by Bruce Paltrow and co-starring Edward Herrmann. It was a huge success. "This production had the inexhaustible talents of Jacqueline McKenzie, an utterly charming and irrepressible Australian, whose cockney accent was spot on and characterization was full-cocked. Bursting onto the stage like a fire-engine responding to a five-alarm conflagration, McKenzie was a dynamo with enough energy to fill simultaneous performances of this and Pygmalian (a sure bet for her if the WTF wants to bring her back- and it should). Suffice to say, hers will surely be among the most memorable and reason enough to revive Rita.''[33]

She was cast as a lead in the US television pilot for the ABC called "MEDS" (later "MDs"), directed by Michael Hoffman and starring John Hannah. She played Dockdaisy in the National Actors Theatre / Complicite co-production of The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui,[34] by Bertolt Brecht. Directed by Simon McBurney this cast included Al Pacino, Steve Buscemi, Chaz Palminteri, John Goodman, Paul Giamatti, Billy Crudup, Lothaire Bluteau, Linda Emond, Tony Randall and Charles Durning.[35] After this production, Jacqueline returned to Australia to star as Catherine in the Pulitzer Prize Winning play "Proof" by David Auburn.[36] Directed by George Ogilvie and also starring Barry Otto, this "tour de force from McKenzie"[37] broke all previously held box office records at the Sydney Opera House, Drama Theatre. Mckenzie followed the success of Proof by taking the lead role of "Jude" in the Australian Feature Film Peaches, starring Hugo Weaving and Emma Lung. Directed by Craig Monahan, the role garnered McKenzie a Best Actress Award from the Film Critics Circle of Australia with her performance described as a 'revelation':[12]"never more so than in the scene where she sings "The Carnival Is Over" across a pub counter." From Peaches, Jacqueline began work with Paul Cox (Man of Flowers, Innocence) in the feature film Human Touch starring as a young chorister estranged from her husband: "McKenzie makes Anna's sensual awakening both sensual and real".[38]

2004 to 2015[edit]

In 2004, Jacqueline made the switch to Prime Time television in a role that would catapult her to international stardom. Cast as the lead female detective Diana Skouris[39] in the US Prime-time science fiction television series The 4400 from Executive Producer Francis Ford Coppola, Jacqueline was cast alongside Joel Gretsch (Taken, Minority Report) - an onscreen partnership oft likened to Mulder and Scully. Directed by Yves Simoneau with show runner Ira Steven Behr (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), The 4400 was the highest rating debut on US Cable for 2004[12] earning a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Best Mini-Series. The show ran on the USA Network for four seasons, ending in 2007. In 2006, Jacqueline also starred as Linda Landry in "Umney's Last Case" opposite William H. Macy[40] - the third episode of Nightmares and Dreamscapes on TNT. In 2008, Jacqueline starred as psychiatrist Veronica Hayden-Jones in the 13 part series "Mental" on the Fox Network which was filmed at Fox Telecolombia in Bogota, Colombia.[41] Starring Annabella Sciorra, this was the first American T.V. series to be filmed in Latin America for international markets. McKenzie guest starred in Desperate Housewives, Without A Trace, CSI: Miami, Hawaii 5-0 and the Australian TV series Rake. She was cast as Emma Waddell in the Jeremy Sims directed feature film Beneath Hill 60 and starred in the 2010 season finale of NCIS: LA alongside former Deep Blue Sea cast-mate, LL Cool J.

In 2011, Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton, the co-artistic directors of the Sydney Theatre Company, invited Jacqueline to star in their production of Sarah Ruhl's In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play) at the Sydney Opera House, Drama Theatre.[42] Co-starring Mandy McElhinney, this production went on tour to Melbourne Theatre Company, Wollongong, Canberra and Parramatta Riverside Theatre, earning Jacqueline a Best Actress nomination at the Green Room Awards for her role as Mrs Givings. This was Jacqueline's first play since her critically acclaimed turn as Catherine in David Auburn's Pulitzer Prize Winning play Proof (play) , which sold out at The Sydney Opera House in 2003.

In 2012, she accepted Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton's invitation to star in the Australian premiere of the two-hander Sex With Strangers by American Playwright Laura Eason (House of Cards) for the Sydney Theatre Company. This critically acclaimed production co-starred Ryan Corr and was directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse. An award winning director of may films including How to Make an American Quilt, this was Jocelyn's first play. In 2013, Jacqueline starred in the seminal role of Margaret (aka "Maggie") in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams for Belvoir St., directed by Simon Stone, co-starring Ewen Leslie (as Brick) and Marshall Napier (as "Big Daddy"). A sell out production with an extension season at the Theatre Royal, Sydney, Jacqueline's performance, in the role that made Elizabeth Taylor famous, was highly acclaimed: “Jacqueline McKenzie has far more scope in this play than she had in the recent “Sex with Strangers” to display her mesmerizing and neurasthenic talents that are so reminiscent of the early Judy Davis. She squirms, hops, skips and flops through the drama with a manic intensity that is breathtaking to watch from the first scene when she works her way through about a dozen changes of clothing and many pairs of ‘hot’ shoes during her long and intense opening monologue...[43] and “McKenzie has been playing some major roles in Sydney recently but here is a great one, finally worthy of her ability, and she rises to it magnificently. Her Maggie is full of feverish energy, and hard-won, hard-edged glamour that a woman who has clawed herself up out of poverty to become the wife of the descendent of a crass but very rich family might be expected to display. She is better than them. She is beautiful, her smile is always bright but brief glimpses of self-doubt betray her origins, and her eyes betray her desperation....”[44] "This is a good production, made great by McKenzie's beautiful performance." Jacqueline returned to The Sydney Opera House in 2014 to play Liza in Andrew Upton's adaptation of the Gorky classic "Children of the Sun" for The Sydney Theatre Company. Co-starring with Justine Clarke and Toby Truslove, under the direction of Kip Williams, the production was immensely successful garnering Jacqueline a nomination for Best Actress at the 2014 Sydney Theatre Awards.[45]

In 2014, Jacqueline reunited with her Romper Stomper co-star, Russell Crowe, to perform in his feature film directing debut, The Water Diviner, in which he also stars. With a hand-picked cast [46] that included Yilmaz Erdogan, Olga Kurylenko, Ryan Corr, Jai Courtney, Steve Bastoni and Cem Yilmaz The Water Diviner was nominated for 8 AACTA awards including Best Supporting Actress in a feature film for Jacqueline, who played the role of Russell's grieving wife Lizzie. For this performance, Jacqueline won Best Supporting Actress at the 2014 Film Critics Circle of Australia Awards.[47]

Films to be released: Force of Destiny, written and directed by Paul Cox and starring David Wenham, Shahana Goswami; Fell,[48] written and directed by Kasimir Burgess and starring Matt Nable and Daniel Henshall.

2015, Jacqueline is to star alongside Richard Roxburgh and Cate Blanchett in the Sydney Theatre Company production of "The Present",[49] by Anton Chekhov. Adapted by Andrew Upton, this production will be directed by John Crowley. She is also starring as "Orlando", in the Sarah Ruhl play Orlando,[50] based on the novel by Virginia Woolf (made famous by the 1992 Sally Potter film starring Tilda Swinton). Directed by Sarah Goodes, Orlando will run at the Sydney Opera House for The Sydney Theatre Company.

Other Works[edit]

Jacqueline's hobbies include composing and recording music. Past collaborators include Vic Levak (Balligomingo) who co-wrote Shy Baby and Jim Hayden (Electrasy). When her 4400 co-star Joel Gretsch heard her song Shy Baby, he took it to the producers of the show and as a result, it was used in the second season finale "Mommy's Bosses"[51] of The 4400. Shy Baby went on to be included in The 4400 soundtrack CD, released in April 2007. Also an avid painter (since working with Aaron Blabey on the Paul Cox film The Human Touch),[52] Jacqueline's paintings have appeared in several publications, including Venice Magazine[53] and OK!.[54] In the Fox TV series Mental, her paintings became set dressing, adorning the walls of her character's office in the final episodes of the show.

Personal life[edit]

In 1996, a portrait of McKenzie by Australian narrative painter Garry Shead was a finalist in the Archibald Prize[55] and the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize.[56]

McKenzie became mother to a daughter in June 2009.[58]
