Daughter of an eminent Buddhist scholar and a psychotherapist, Uma Thurman left school at 15 to pursue an acting career in New York. After a brief stint as a model, she gained recognition in films such as Dangerous Liaisons and Henry and June. In 1990, she married the gifted British actor Gary Oldman, but their marriage was troubled and short lived. On the set of the sci-fi thriller Gattaca, she met actor Ethan Hawke, whom she married in 1998. Back in top form after the birth of her second child and her subsequent separation from Hawke, she gave an electrifying performance as a wronged bride on a rampage of revenge in Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 film Kill Bill. This complete biography looks at Uma Thurman’s rise to fame as well as what lies ahead for this mesmerizing star.
