Greta Scacchi /ˈskækiː/ (born 18 February 1960) is an Italian-Australian actress known for her roles in the films White Mischief, Presumed Innocent and The Player. She won an Emmy Award in 1996 for her portrayal of Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna of Russia in the television film, Rasputin: Dark Servant of Destiny.

Biography

Scacchi was in a relationship with New Zealand musician Tim Finn from 1983–89. She has a daughter (born 1992) with actor Vincent D'Onofrio Scacchi also has a son (born 1998) by Carlo Mantegazza.

Scacchi applied for British citizenship after turning 18, but was turned down because her father was not a British citizen. After appealing unsuccessfully, she decided not to apply for it again, and retained her Italian citizenship. In January 1995, she became an Australian citizen and has since had dual nationality.

She lived for many years in Hurstpierpoint until moving in early 2011 to a rented property in East Grinstead because of a dispute with her neighbour.

Scacchi is an active supporter of campaigns and organisations that promote environmental causes. She has supported Greenpeace and, more recently, Christian Aid's climate change campaign. In 2009, she posed nude with a Codfish to promote the documentary End of the Line, a film exposing the effects of over-fishing.

In October 2013 she was made a Cavaliere dell’Ordine al Merito for her services to the Arts.

Kyle Pratt (Jodie Foster), a U.S. aircraft engineer employed in Berlin, Germany, is widowed with a six-year-old daughter Julia (Marlene Lawston) after her husband David (John Benjamin Hickey) falls off the roof of their building to his death. Kyle decides to bury him in their hometown back in the U.S., on Long Island, NY. They fly aboard a passenger aircraft, the engines of which Kyle helped design. After falling asleep, Kyle wakes to find that Julia is missing. She begins to panic, and Captain Marcus Rich (Sean Bean) is forced to conduct a search. None of the passengers remember seeing her daughter, Julia has no register in either the Berlin airport or the passenger manifest, and Kyle cannot find Julia's boarding pass. Marcus and the other crew members suspect that Kyle has become unhinged by her husband's death, and has imagined bringing her daughter aboard. One flight attendant Stephanie (Kate Beahan) is particularly unsympathetic. Faced with the crew's growing skepticism regarding her daughter's existence, Kyle becomes more and more desperate. Because of her increasingly erratic, panicked behavior, air marshal Gene Carson (Peter Sarsgaard) is ordered to guard and handcuff her.
