Biography

Early life and career

Naomie Harris is the daughter of British sitcom-writer Lisselle Kayla. She graduated in 1998 from Pembroke College, Cambridge with an undergraduate degree in Social science and Political science. Harris trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. While she has acted in TV and film since she was nine, she only became a high-profile actress in 2002, with her performance as Selena, a co-lead in the film 28 Days Later. Since then, she has been cast in supporting roles in more high-profile movies, such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Michael Mann's Miami Vice. She also had a lead role in the television adaptation of Zadie Smith's White Teeth.

Pirates of the Caribbean

After the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, two sequels followed, Dead Man's Chest and At World's End. It was in these films, which were filmed back-to-back, that Naomie Harris starred as Tia Dalma, also known as the goddess Calypso bound in human form.

In 2011, Naomie Harris confirmed being somewhat involved in the making of the fourth film On Stranger Tides, even though her character didn't appear in the film. Harris stated that she got a call and was asked to do some Tia Dalma lines that would be said in the film by Penélope Cruz's character, Angelica.[1]
