Essie Davis (born 1970) is an Australian actress. Born and raised in Hobart, Tasmania, she is the daughter of locally famed artist George Davis.

Quote:
Essie Davis emerged from the Old Nick Company at the University of Tasmania in the late 1980s. She is also a graduate of the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) in Sydney. Her acting career began with the Bell Shakespeare company when, straight out of NIDA, she was cast as Juliet in the 1993 production of Romeo and Juliet.[1] Her film career started after her role in the all Australian movie Dad and Dave: On Our Selection (1995), also starring other prestigious actors such as Geoffrey Rush, Leo McKern, and Joan Sutherland. Her most famous movie roles are in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, Richard Flanagan's 1998 Tasmanian film The Sound of One Hand Clapping, and Girl with a Pearl Earring.

In 2003 she won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actress for her UK performance in the Tennessee Williams play A Streetcar Named Desire. In 2004 she starred in a Broadway production of Tom Stoppard's Jumpers, for which she earned a Tony nomination. In 2005 she appeared as Mrs. Nellie Lovett in the BBC production of Sweeney Todd with Ray Winstone. In the 2008 film Hey, Hey, It's Esther Blueburger she plays Esther's controlling mother. Also in 2008, she appeared in the movie Australia with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, directed by Baz Luhrmann. In 2008 Davis played Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof for the Melbourne Theatre Company.[2]

She returned to Tasmania to launch the "The Tasmanian Theatre Company" in 2008 and help support local theatre while encouraging youth to continue participating in the arts.


She plays Miss Phryne Fisher on the ABC's Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries and has done some mildly raunchy scenes in it.

I was lucky to catch Essie in Playschool recently. Didn't know she was the actress who played Miss Fisher she looked so different.

Thanks Tombslayer, I don't get a chance to cap the show.

If anyone every catches it, there was an episode in the last season where she played her lover, a French artist, nude model and flashed some breasts.

It was all hidden by camera angles, apart from a slightly blurry long shot. These are from the DVD.
