Saffron Burrows Biography

Saffron Dominique Burrows was born on New Year's Day, 1973, into a politically charged household. Her parents were active socialist-feminists who had Saffron distributing flyers and attending rallies throughout her childhood. Young Saffron even had to share her house with striking miners. Who knew that she would end up with a successful modeling and acting career?

At age 15, Burrows was discovered in London's Covent Garden, by the same scout who had discovered Naomi Campbell. An impressive modeling career in France and England ensued, with several major companies building on her precocious looks. However, by the age of 17, Saffron sought something more fulfilling and decided to return to her childhood love of acting.

In 1993, she won her first movie role in the drama, In the Name of the Father, which introduced her to Daniel Day-Lewis, whom she ended up dating for a few years. Making steady progress in her career, Burrows won her first major part in 1995's Circle of Friends. The film was a respected romantic drama and co-starred Colin Firth, Minnie Driver, and Alan Cumming, with whom Saffron also became romantically involved.

Television was Saffron's medium of choice in 1996, with a successful turn on the BBC mini-series Cold Lazarus and Karaoke (she starred as the same character in both features, which had the same director). But it was the following year, 1997, which determined the course of her career.

After appearances in the films Nevada and Lovelife, Saffron worked with the critically-acclaimed director of Leaving Las Vegas, Mike Figgis, on One Night Stand. Their personal and professional relationship has endured through The Loss of Sexual Innocence, Miss Julie, and the split-screen experimental outing, Timecode.

Meanwhile, Saffron's career has seen its share of ups and downs. In 1998, she was fired from Woody Allen's Celebrity for "not being vulgar enough." She starred as a lieutenant commander in the 1999 flop Wing Commander, and as a scientist in the high-budget action flick, Deep Blue Sea. The following year, Burrows appeared as a tough girl in 2000's Gangster No. 1.

In 2001, Saffron kept busy with roles in Enigma, Tempted and Figgis' Hotel. Audiences could also spot her in 2002's critically-acclaimed Frida, starring Salma Hayek. Saffron then appeared in the Spanish film, The Galindez Mystery, and the much-anticipated Troy in 2004.

Saffron Burrows lives with Mike Figgis and splits her time between her Hollywood and London residences.
