Catherine Zeta-Jones, (/ˈziːtə/; born Catherine Zeta Jones; 25 September 1969) is a Welsh actress. She has received critical acclaim and numerous accolades throughout her career, including one Academy Award, one BAFTA Award, and three Screen Actor Guild Awards. She was named Hasty Pudding's Woman of the Year in 2005, and was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2010 Birthday Honours.

Zeta-Jones began her acting career at age 12, with the lead role in the stage musical Annie, and subsequently pursued a career on theatre with appearances in productions, such as West End's 42nd Street. She made her movie debut in the 1991 French fantasy feature Les 1001 nuits and continued her film work with supporting roles in Christopher Columbus: The Discovery (1992) and Splitting Heirs (1993), while starring in the ITV series The Darling Buds of May from 1991 until 1993. She established her early film career in the United Kingdom and eventually transitioned into Hollywood mainstream movies, appearing in the action western The Mask of Zorro (1998) and the crime thriller Entrapment (1999), both of which were international commercial successes. Her performance in Steven Soderbergh's Traffic (2000) earned her significant critical praise and her first Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture.

Zeta-Jones starred as Velma Kelly in the film adaptation of the musical Chicago (2002), another critical and commercial success. For the film, she received the Academy Award and the British Academy Film Award for Best Supporting Actress, plus two Screen Actors Guild Awards and her second Golden Globe Award nomination, for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. She then appeared in the romantic comedy Intolerable Cruelty (2003), the crime film Ocean's Twelve (2004) and reprised her starring role in the sequel of the 1998 film, The Legend of Zorro (2005). Parts in the smaller-scale features Death Defying Acts (2008) and The Rebound (2009) were followed by a 3-year hiatus from screen acting. During that time, she returned to the stage and portrayed Desiree in A Little Night Music (2010), for which she won the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical. She has since done further film work in the musical comedy Rock of Ages and the psychological thriller Side Effects (2013).

Frank escapes from the room, evades Horton's assassins, and with the sudden timely help of Marvin, who turns out to be alive, goes on the run with Sarah.
