SIENNA MILLER (Frankie Burns) was born in New York, educated in England, and studied drama at the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York. Miller's film debut came opposite Daniel Craig in Matthew Vaughn's Layer Cake in 2004. From there she excelled in movies, including Factory Girl, Casanova, The Edge of Love, Interview and Paramount's GI Joe: Rise of Cobra.

Miller has received a number of accolades, including a British Independent Film Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Edge of Love. That same year she was nominated for the BAFTA Orange Rising Star Award and in 2006 was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for her role as Katya in Interview. In 2013 Miller was nominated for both a TV BAFTA and a Golden Globe in the Best Actress in a Mini-Series or TV movie category for her work in HBO's The Girl, where she played Alfred Hitchcock's muse Tippi Hedren.

In 2015 Miller starred in Bennett Miller's movie Foxcatcher, which was nominated in five different categories by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. That same year, Miller starred opposite Bradley Cooper in the box office hit American Sniper, directed by Clint Eastwood. The movie earned a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards and broke box office records in the U.S. Other projects released in 2015 included the comedy Unfinished Business with Vince Vaughn; Burnt, also starring Bradley Cooper; and High Rise, directed by Ben Wheatley, starring Tom Hiddleston and Luke Evans. Miller was nominated for a British Independent Film Award for best Supporting Actress for her role as Charlotte.

Miller played the enthralling Emma Gould in Ben Affleck's Live by Night, set during the Prohibition era in Boston. Next, she was seen as the early feminist Nina Fawcett in James Gray's Lost City of Z, which closed the New York Film Festival in October 2016 and had its international premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2017. The movie tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett, who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the twentieth century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization.

Miller recently starred in American Woman, directed by Jake Scott, produced by Scott Free Productions, from a screenplay by Brad Ingelsby. Also starring Aaron Paul and Christina Hendricks, the film is set in a blue-collar town in Pennsylvania, where, after a 32-year-old woman's teen daughter goes missing, she is left to raise her infant grandson alone. The story is told over the course of 11 years.

On stage, Miller has appeared in the 2015 Broadway Sam Mendes production of Cabaret, After Miss Julie on Broadway, Flare Path at London's Haymarket Theatre, As you Like It at The Wyndham's (West End), and most recently an Old Vic production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (2017) at the Apollo Theatre, London.
