Jacki Weaver

Jacki Weaver embarked on her acting journey at a tender age, making her debut at 19 in the Australian television series "Wandjina!" in 1966. From there, she immersed herself in numerous Australian TV productions, spanning series and television films.
Although deeply rooted in theater and television, Weaver's foray into cinema came later in her career. It was in 2010 that she garnered widespread recognition, portraying the character Janine 'Smurf' Cody in David Michôd's mafia drama "Animal Kingdom" alongside Guy Pearce and Joel Edgerton. Her portrayal of this psychopathic matriarch earned unanimous acclaim from critics and secured her an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. The film's success marked a pivotal moment in Jacki Weaver's career.
Following her breakout role, Hollywood beckoned, and Weaver starred in her first American production, the comedy "The Five-Year Engagement" directed by Nicholas Stoller in 2012. Shortly after, she appeared in "Silver Linings Playbook" alongside Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Robert De Niro, portraying the latter's wife in the film. Weaver continued her international presence with a role in Park Chan-wook's horror drama "Stoker" in 2013.
