Jessica Chastain recently wrapped up a limited run on Broadway in THE HEIRESS, but that was far from her first time on stage. According to Celebuzz, Chastain led San Francisco Bay's Theatreworks production of Romeo and Juliet back in 1998.

A noted alum of the Drama Division at The Julliard School, since graduating from the school with a BFA in 2003, Chastain has received major accolades for her roles in films like Ralph Fiennes' CORIOLANUS, John Madden's THE DEBT, John Hillcoat's LAWLESS, Jeff Nichols' TAKE SHELTER, Terrence Malick's THE TREE OF LIFE and Tate Taylor's THE HELP (for which she received her first nomination last year for an Academy Award).
She can currently be seen in Andrés Muschietti's MAMA and Katherine Bigelow's Academy Award nominated film, ZERO DARK THIRTY (for which she recently won Best Actress at the National Board of Review, the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama and for which she is currently nominated for Best Actress for the upcoming Academy Awards), as well as her Broadway-debut turn in THE HEIRESS.
Chastain is taking theatre with her to the silver screen as well: she's been cast in Liv Ullmann's adaptation of August Strindberg's MISS JULIE.
