1Statuesque, model-like figure
2Natural brunette hair
1[on character's past and future versions in the "X-Men" films] I'm actually really excited about it. And its not the first time obviously that it's happened. In the 'X-Men' series, they've been doing this for years. Although women, it's interesting because they're replaced, and the older versions - or more mature, whatever the politically correct version of that is - are never to be seen again. Whereas the men are allowed to be both ages. Sexism. I think that I should be back along with my younger version and the way that we've seen it with Magneto and Professor X.
2As long as corruption exists, human trafficking will likely flourish. I'd like to give something back on an issue that matters to me.
3I'm a firm believer in taking risks in life, because you'll never get anywhere unless you do, and the more risk involved the greater the outcome - or the worse, but you never know so you've got to go for it.
4Looking back, boy, has there ever been a stigma in being a Bond Girl. That's what my mission in life is, just to prove them wrong. That's why I have such an urge to keep going and proving that. It's so silly. What on earth does the way you look have anything to do with whether you can act or not.
5[on her character's change in X2 (2003) (aka X-Men United)] I love darkness. I am attracted to the dark side of life! I thought it was really interesting that Jean Grey went through some changes in this film.
6I think acting is just like that. There is something childish and fun about it.
7I don't even like talking about dating. It's like having a stamp on your forehead: 'I'm available and I'm looking'.
8I don't want to be exploited. That of course, as an actress, is a real challenge, not to be exploited. So I'm just going to keep looking for as many different types of roles as I can find in different genre movies. That's my goal, my aim. I like doing that. I've had a pretty varied career so far.
9We've always been ready for female superheroes. Because women want to be them and men want to do them.
10I would rather not work than play in a movie that nobody watches.
11I felt different born into a family with two sisters who are blonde and blue-eyed, with me being the only brunette. [interview with People Weekly magazine, July 31, 2000. Volume 54, Number 5]
1Was inspired to become an activist against corruption after playing Lenore in Taken (2008). She now serves as the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Office against Drugs and Crime.
2Sister-in-law of Rik Launspach.
3Lives in New York City.
4Is a vegetarian.
5Is a fan of Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep.
6Her favorite horror movie is The Shining (1980). Her all-time favorite movie is The Awful Truth (1937).
7Turn the River (2007) was written for her by her The Treatment (2006) co-star Chris Eigeman.
8Her favorite movies of her career are Love & Sex (2000) and Turn the River (2007).
9Used to eat almonds and dried cranberries every day while filming X-Men: The Last Stand (2006).
10Did all her own pool shots in Turn the River (2007).
11Ex-sister-in-law of director Joram Lürsen.
12Originally, Famke Janssen was cast for the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) series after her work on the Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) episode, Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Perfect Mate (1992), and was to reprise her role as "Kamala". However, she wanted to leave herself open for feature film work and turned the role down. The role of "Jadzia Dax" was created to take the place of this character, which was performed by actress Terry Farrell.
13Her sister was visiting Southeast Asia during the Tsunami on December 26, 2004, and had to flee the water to save her life.
14Ranked #69 in Stuff magazine's "102 Sexiest Women in the World" [2002].
15Has a Boston Terrier named Licorice.
16While appearing on Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993) to promote her role of the sex-crazed assassin in the James Bond film GoldenEye (1995), Famke gave Conan a first hand experience of her character's signature moves by performing them on him using the top of his desk. When she asked him if he would like the demonstration, Conan responded with "This is what we in the industry call a 'no-brainer'."
17Provides the Dutch-language narration for the Studio Tram Tour at Disney parks.
18Wears size 11 shoes. Because of their large size, her shoes had to be especially made for her for the film GoldenEye (1995). In Love & Sex (2000), Jon Favreau's character jokes about how big her character's feet were.
19Sisters Antoinette Beumer and Marjolein Beumer are a director and actress respectively.
20Offered the lead female role in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), but turned it down.
21Speaks Dutch, German, English and French.
22Was cast as Serleena in Men in Black II (2002) but had to drop out due to a death in the family. Lara Flynn Boyle was cast in her place.
23Her two sisters are blonde and blue-eyed, while she is the only brunette.
