Brigitte Millar is an award winning London based bilingual German/English actress. Her family ancestry goes back to the famous painter Emil Nolde and she has inherited his natural creativity. But Emil died in abject poverty and although his paintings now fetch seven figure sums, Brigitte's artistic skills were heavily discouraged, because her parents were afraid that she would not be able to support herself as an artist. Her talent would have been lost forever but for the support and encouragement of her brother. Out of work having been made redundant from the dull and boring day job, Brigitte considered the possibility of a dancing career. But her brother steered her towards acting and a lifelong talent and passion was discovered. Shortly after finishing drama college, Brigitte was cast as Emmeline Vance in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix directed by David Yates and she has worked consistently on many high quality projects since. In 2011 she won the award for Best Supporting Actress at the International Film Festival in Los Angeles for her role as Amelia Holland in the multi-award winning feature film David is Dying directed by Stephen Lloyd Jackson. This film won 8 awards in the United States alone. The first British Independent feature film to do this. Brigitte has worked with a range of highly-respected experienced actors including Dakota Blue Richards in The Quiet Hour which was nominated for the award for Best UK Feature Film at the International Raindance Film Festival in 2014. However Brigitte is not complacent and continues to strive to improve her skills and technique. She is an active member of the Actors' Centre in London and has studied with many of the masters including the American acting coaches Jack Waltzer and Joseph Perlmann. Her latest project is the best yet. She recently finished filming NO TIME TO DIE directed by Cari Joji Fukunaga, which was written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and really enjoyed reprising her role as the villain Dr Vogel in Spectre directed by Sam Mendes. And now with her U.S. O1 visa in her hands, she is ready to take on any challenge. Her hobbies include Ballroom and Latin American dancing, horse-riding, reading and visiting art galleries.
