She is one of the few actresses who have won the four most important cinema awards: Two Oscar Awards, three Golden Globes, three BAFTA and three Screen Actors Guild Awards. He also owns a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Childhood and education.

Cate Blanchett was born in Ivanhoe, a suburb in Melbourne, Australia, as the daughter of US police officer and senior advertising executive Robert Blanchett and his wife, June Gamble, an Australian school and business teacher. When she was ten, Cate and her two brothers, Bob and Genevieve Blanchett, saw when their father died after suffering a sheer a heart attack at the age of forty. For this reason, Cate defines herself as “an extroverted girl, but at the same time closed.” It is a story that she resists explaining since her father’s death affected her deeply.

Cate completed her secondary studies at the Methodist Ladies College in Melbourne, where she made her first artistic attempts by participating in various plays. She subsequently went to the University of Melbourne to study economics and fine arts; But, uncertain about her professional future, she left to devote herself to travel and gain experience before deciding on a career. At the age of 18, during her visit to the United Kingdom she was forced to leave the country due to her visa expiration.

Artistic beginnings.

Her career began on stage in Australia the same year of her graduation (1992) with the play Electra of Sophocles. From then on, she went into the stage world and worked with Geoffrey Rush in 1993, representing David Mamet’s Oleanna, and in 1994 acting as Ophelia in Hamlet. Her film debut came in 1994 when she landed a role in the Australian Film Police Rescue. From that moment, Cate made her own space in the cinema world in her native country participating in television series like Heartland and Parklands while maintaining, at the same time, her work in the theater.

Consolidation as actress.

In 2004 she worked with Martin Scorsese in The Aviator, a biopic of the great American businessman Howard Hughes, who was portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio. With this project, Cate had to face the challenge of her life by having to interpret one of the great classic Hollywood actresses, Katharine Hepburn. The result, however, was excellent. It not only satisfied the audience, but also the experts of the Academy. So in 2005, she received her second Oscar nomination and, this time, to win the statuette as best supporting actress.

Personal life.

Her husband is the Australian scriptwriter and playwright Andrew Upton, whom she met in 1996. They were married on December 29, 1997 in the Blue Mountains National Park of New South Wales, Australia, just before Cate began filming Elizabeth. Since then, they have had three children: Dashiell John, born in 2001, Roman Robert in 2004, and Ignatius Martin in 2008.
