Actress nominated in February, 1999, for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in Hilary And Jackie, the story of brilliant musician Jacqueline du Pre, the celebrated 1960s English cellist who died young from multiple sclerosis.

On hearing the news, 32 year old Rachel shrieked " I'm chuffed. I'm just so bloody chuffed. It's great, it's unbelievable, it's so bloody good."

At the Oscars she wore a dress made by Richard Tyler.

Rachel is previously best known for her wheelchair-bound role in Muriel's Wedding.
