Born in the northern Polish town of Bialystok, Izabella Scorupco moved to Sweden with her mother as a young child. She studied drama and music and, at 17, was discovered by a Swedish film director who cast her in the movie Ingen kan älska som vi (1988), which made her a local teen idol. She then became a successful model in Sweden and throughout Europe, where she made good use of her fluency in four languages. In 1989, Scorupco displayed another facet of her talents, launching her career as a pop singer with her first single, Substitute. The single and subsequent album, IZA, both went gold, and she followed with another hit single, Shame, Shame, which she recorded in 1991. Returning to acting in 1994, she immediately won the lead role in the Swedish film The Tears of Saint Peter (1995). Scorupco stars as a woman who lives her life as a man in the medieval drama, which was released in August 1995. Shortly after Izabella received international attention after landing the leading female role in the Bond movie “Goldeneye” starring against Pierce Brosnan. In 2000 she played one of the adventurers in “Vertical limit” and went on to the lead female in the science-fantasy movie “Reign of fire” against Matthew Mc Conaughey and Christian Bale. In 2004 Izabella acted against fellow Swede Stellan SkarsgÃ¥rd in the Renny Harlin film “The Exorcist- the beginning”. After a couple of roles in American TV-series, Izabella decided to work on the Scandinavian market again, first in the crime/thriller story “Solstrom” against Michael Persbrandt and and then onto the drama “Guardian angel”, a heartbreaking story opposite Michael Nyqvist. Izabella tried a whole different genre in 2014 when she starred the in the hit comedy movie “Micke and Veronica”. Izabella resides in Los Angeles with her two teenage kids and three dogs.
