- "What really helped me get into the character of Dormé was definitely her costume. It was so regal that it made me walk and behave very differently than a twenty-two-year-old Sydney girl. Her entire role really is to support Amidala, and her safety is Dormé's top priority. That helped give me focus."
- ―Rose Byrne
Rose Byrne (born July 24, 1979) played the handmaiden Dormé in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones. She was discovered by Robin Gurland, the casting director for Attack of the Clones, while she was performing with Leeanna Walsman (Zam Wesell) in the play La Dispute for the Sydney Theatre Company.
Byrne is of Irish and Scottish descent, and was born in Balmain, a suburb of Sydney, Australia. She attended Hunters Hill High School, Bradfield College, and the University of Sydney. She also studied acting at the Australian Theatre for Young People and the Atlantic Theater Company.
The Australian actress's other credits include films such as Troy, Wicker Park, Marie Antoinette, Sunshine, 28 Weeks Later, Bridesmaids, X-Men: First Class, The Place Beyond the Pines, and I Give It a Year.
In 2001, she played alongside Star Wars co-star Joel Edgerton (Owen Lars in Episodes II and Episode III) in the short movie The Pitch. The film was directed by Joel Edgerton's brother, Nash Edgerton (Ewan McGregor's stunt double in the prequel trilogy). She played once again with Joel Edgerton in the 2003 film The Night We Called It a Day. She also appeared along with Alethea McGrath (Jocasta Nu) in the 2003 film Take Away and in the 2009 film Knowing. In 2005, she shared screen with David Tennant (voice of Huyang in The Clone Wars) in the BBC TV miniseries Casanova. In 2006, she played in Marie Antoinette, a film directed by Sofia Coppola (Saché). She also played with Adam Driver (Kylo Ren) in the 2014 film This Is Where I Leave You, and will appear with Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) in X-Men: Apocalypse.
From 2007 to 2012, Byrne has played the role of Ellen Parsons in the TV series Damages, which has earned her two Golden Globe and two Primetime Emmy nominations, and an Australian Film Institute award for Best Actress.
