Karvan, Claudia

Biographical Notes & Trivia

Birthday: 19 May 1972 (Sydney, NSW, Australia)

Claudia's daughter Audrey was born in 2001.

From ATIA:

Claudia Karvan was academically inclined at school, but acting had already become a big part of her life by then. Now she is one of Australia's most highly regarded film actors. When she was nine years old, a friend's father cast her in a feature film—Molly. Next up was a small role in Philip Noyce's feature, Echoes of Paradise. Then she was cast opposite Judy Davis in High Tide. Claudia was 14 years old. [...]

Claudia has won an Australian Film Institute Award for her work on G.P. (best actress in a television drama) and has been nominated for AFI Awards nine times in all — mostly for her film work. She has won an Action & Adventure Film Festival award for Best Actor (Redheads), an Australian Film Critics' Circle Award for Best Actress (Heartbreak Kid) and a short film she appeared in — Two Girls and a Baby — was acclaimed at Sydney's Mardi Gras Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival. Claudia says she loves television drama for its immediacy — "the modern-day theatre" — and says the pace of producing a show a week requires her as an actor to be "less precious and more resourceful with my performance". When she is not at work, Claudia may be found on a yoga mat or a surfboard.
