Genies Poll: Favourite Rachel Weisz Character?

As the clock continues to count down to tomorrow's 32nd Annual Genie Awards, we offer another installment of our favourite characters poll - this time around, Cambridge alumnus Rachel Weisz.

Weisz's performance in the Genie nominated film The Whistleblower has garnered her a Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role nomination at this year's Genies. But prior to this year she's had a long string of successes.

Fans loved her in her breakout role, 1999's The Mummy, where she starred alongside a dashingly goofy Brendan Fraser. The film grossed $416 million worldwide and Weisz was nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Actress.

That same year, Weisz got her first Genie nomination for her turn in Sunshine, which snagged the Genie for Best Picture in 1999.

From there, Weisz starred in several critically acclaimed films, including Enemy At The Gates, About A Boy, The Shape of Things and Constantine. She also starred in 2005's The Constant Gardener, which earned her a slew of awards, including the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

If that's not enough she's married to 007 himself - actor Daniel Craig - and she'll be starring in this year's The Bourne Legacy, which is getting a ton of buzz already.
