BIRDS OF PREY

MARY ELIZABETH WINSTEAD (Huntress) is an immensely talented actress with a gift for taking on challenging roles and bringing dynamic characters to life on screen. As she fearlessly evolves her body of work with each new project, Winstead is fast becoming one of today's leading talents across both independent and mainstream platforms.

Winstead is currently in production on Netflix's assassin thriller "Kate," opposite Woody Harrelson. The story revolves around a female assassin who, after being poisoned and given less than 24 hours to live, must go on a manhunt through the streets of Tokyo to take vengeance on her murderer before she dies. The film is written by Umair Aleem and directed by Cedric NicolasTroyan. David Leitch, Kelly McCormick, Patrick Newall and Bryan Unkeless, who worked with Winstead on "Birds of Prey...," serve as producers on the film.

Previously, Winstead was seen in "Gemini Man," opposite Will Smith and directed by Ang Lee. She stars as Danny, an operative who is ordered to surveil Henry Brogan (Smith), an elite assassin who becomes the target of a mysterious operative who can seemingly predict his every move, and soon finds herself immersed in the action.

Winstead made her theater debut this Spring in the off-Broadway psychodrama "Dying City," in which she starred opposite Colin Woodell. Set in a sparse Manhattan apartment, "Dying City" explores the human fallout of global events, including the Iraq War and 9/11. The play, which received its world premiere at London's Royal Court in 2006, is the story of a young widow who receives an unexpected visit from the twin brother of her deceased husband.

On the silver screen, she was most recently seen in Season 3 of the critically acclaimed FX show "Fargo," as the crafty and alluring Nikki Swango who is focused on always being at least one move ahead of her opponents. This role earned her a nomination for a Critics Choice Award in the category of Best Supporting Actress in a Movie or Limited Series.

Last year, Winstead starred in the raw dramedy "All About Nina," in which she leads with an outstanding central performance as Nina, a bracingly funny and blisteringly provocative standup comedian whose personal life is a near-complete disaster. Written and directed by Eva Vives, the film was nominated for Best Narrative Feature at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival.

Winstead's other recent credits and award nominations include J.J. Abram's psychological thriller "10 Cloverfield Lane," in which she was the female lead opposite John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr.; reprising her role as Lucy Gennaro McClane in John Moore's action thriller "A Good Day to Die Hard"; "The Spectacular Now," alongside Shailene Woodley; Timur Bekmambetov's film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's novel "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"; James Ponsoldt's critically acclaimed "Smashed," for which she received a 2013 Indie Spirit Award nomination for Best Female Lead; "The Thing," opposite Joel Edgerton; Edgar Wright's comic-tofilm adaptation of "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," alongside Michael Cera and Anna Kendrick; Emilio Estevez's drama "Bobby," alongside William H. Macy, Sharon Stone and Anthony Hopkins, which received two Golden Globe nominations in addition to a Screen Actors Guild nomination for Best Ensemble Cast; "The Hollars"; "Swiss Army Man"; "Kill the Messenger"; "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III"; and "Live Free or Die Hard."

Her television credits include a starring role in the TBS mini-series "Mercy Street," produced by Ridley Scott, alongside Josh Radnor and Gary Cole; CBS's "Braindead" with Aaron Tveit and Tony Shalhoub; and A&E's "The Returned."
