Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Bella Heathcote is emerging as one of Hollywood’s most
sought-after talents. In 2010, after being honored with the Heath Ledger Scholarship Award for her
performance in the Australian war epic, “Beneath Hill 60,” Heathcote moved to Los Angeles to further
pursue her acting career, working with an impressive roster of award-winning directors. Heathcote was
named one of Variety’s “10 Actors to Watch” in 2012.
In February 2017, Heathcote joined Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson and Kim Basinger in “Fifty Shades
Darker,” the second installment of the trilogy based on E.L. James’ worldwide bestselling Fifty Shades

2016 for season two of the acclaimed series.
In 2016 Heathcote co-starred with Lily James, Sam Riley, Lena Heady and Jack Huston in the big

Reeves, Christina Hendricks and Jena Malone in the Nicolas Winding Refn-directed horror thriller “The

Heathcote’s past film credits include “The Re-Write” alongside Hugh Grant and Marissa Tomei; David

Jersey, trying to make it big in the 1960s; and Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows,” as the romantic lead
