Irish actress Kerry Condon has achieved acclaim at a young age for her work in feature films like "Ned Kelly" and the cable series "Rome." Her first role, while she was still a teenager, was in the critically acclaimed U.K. show "Ballykissangel" in 1999, and she had a small part in the Frank McCourt adaptation "Angela's Ashes" the same year. Her first supporting role was in the satirical film "Rat," before she reached an international audience in 2003 with the biographical adventure "Ned Kelly." She had an even bigger role in "Intermission," co-starring with Colin Farrell and Cillian Murphy in the ensemble film. 2005 was a breakout year for Condon, who appeared in the Jet Li action film "Unleashed" and began a recurring role as Octavia of the Julii in the epic series "Rome." She also appeared in the 2009 Tolstoy biographical drama "The Last Station" and had a supporting role in the BAFTA-nominated miniseries "Five Days" in 2010.
