Giacinta Juanita Cordelia Arabella Luciana Rosalina Barrett (born August 2, 1972), known professionally as Jacinda Barrett, is an Australian–American actress and former model, first became known to audiences as a cast member on The Real World: London (1995) before appearing in films such as The Human Stain (2003), Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004), Ladder 49 (2004), The Namesake (2006), Poseidon (2006), and The Last Kiss (2006). She appeared in the series The Following in 2013 and joined the main cast of the Netflix series Bloodline, which launched in 2015.
Early life and career
Born in Brisbane, Queensland, the daughter of an airport firefighter,[failed verification] Barrett entered and won the annual Dolly Covergirl contest in Australia in 1988, while attending San Sisto College, and started modeling at the age of 17 throughout Europe. In 1995, she had her first television appearance as a cast member on MTV's The Real World: London; she later attended the British American Drama Academy in Oxford and made her film debut in Campfire Tales (1997). Barrett appeared in the September 1998 issue of Maxim, in an article promoting the new fall television series. Her appearance served to promote her appearance in the NBC primetime soap opera Wind on Water, but the show only lasted one season.
Barrett was previously engaged to TV host and comedian Chris Hardwick before her marriage to American actor Gabriel Macht in 2004. The couple had their first child, a girl named Satine Anais Geraldine Macht, on August 20, 2007 in Los Angeles. They had a second child, a son named Luca, on February 26, 2014.
Barrett and Macht appeared together in the film Middle Men (2009), and she had a recurring role in the second season of Macht's TV series, Suits (2012-2013), playing a love interest of her husband's character. Barrett enjoys skydiving, and explained: "it gets scarier the more you do it. After a while, you realize you're flinging yourself out of a perfectly good plane for no apparent reason."
