Juno Violet Temple (born 21 July 1989)[1] is an English actress. A diverse character actress, Temple has appeared in films such as Killer Joe, Black Mass, The Other Boleyn Girl, Wild Child, Atonement, Maleficent, The Three Musketeers, and The Dark Knight Rises. She also had a starring role in the HBO period drama series Vinyl and Bravo true-crime drama series Dirty John.

Early life

Temple was born in Hammersmith, London,[2] the daughter of producer Amanda Pirie and film director Julien Temple.[3][4] Her aunt is politician Nina Temple. She grew up in Taunton, Somerset, and attended Enmore Primary School, Bedales School, and King's College, Taunton. She has two younger brothers: Leo and Felix.

Film career

Temple began her career as a child actress in the 1997 film Vigo: Passion for Life, a film about Jean Vigo.[5] Her father directed her in the role of Emma Southey in the 2000 film, Pandaemonium.

She has won critical praise for several supporting roles. One reviewer said that she played her part in Notes on a Scandal with "petulance and angst",[6] while her performance as Lola Quincey in Atonement has been called "impressive".[7] She auditioned to play Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,[8] though the role ultimately went to Evanna Lynch. Some of her other film credits include Celia in St Trinian's and St Trinian's II: The Legend of Fritton's Gold, Drippy (Jennifer Logan) in Wild Child, and Jane Parker in The Other Boleyn Girl.[9] In 2009, Temple starred as Eema in the comedy Year One alongside Jack Black and Michael Cera. She also played Anna in Jaco Van Dormael's Mr. Nobody and Di Radfield in the adaptation of Sheila Kohler's Cracks.

She starred in Abe Sylvia's Dirty Girl, which premiered on 12 September 2010, at the Toronto International Film Festival, co-starring Milla Jovovich, Jeremy Dozier, William H. Macy, Mary Steenburgen, and Dwight Yoakam.

Temple has also appeared in Kid Harpoon's music video "Milkmaid" and Plushgun's "Just Impolite".[10]

In 2010, she appeared in a sketch for FunnyOrDie called "Cycop" which premiered on 12 July 2010 and featured the protagonist from the indie film The Mother of Invention in a poorly made film of his creation. The sketch starred Temple, Andrew Bowser, Ryan Cartwright, and Zelda Williams.[11] She also had a major role in the film Kaboom, first winner of the Queer Palm.

In 2011, Temple appeared in Paul W.S. Anderson's 3D film adaptation of The Three Musketeers, as Anne of Austria, the Queen Consort of France. The film also starred Matthew Macfadyen, Logan Lerman, Luke Evans, Milla Jovovich, Christoph Waltz, Orlando Bloom, and Mads Mikkelsen. The same year, she also appeared as Dottie in Killer Joe, a role that required full frontal nudity.

In 2011, she was named a Brit to Watch by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.[12]

She appeared in The Dark Knight Rises (2012), as a "street-smart Gotham girl."[13] She also portrayed Diane in the lesbian lycanthropic tale Jack & Diane.[14]

Temple appeared in the Elgin James film Little Birds. James offered her the choice of playing either of the two female leads and she chose to portray Lily, citing that she connected with the character more and "wanted to set her free".[15] Temple and James worked on the film together for two years, becoming close. They continue to collaborate[16] and in interviews refer to each other as "best friends"[17] and "family".[18] James has said he made Little Birds to honor the strong women in his life, including Temple.[16]

In February 2013, Temple won the EE Rising Star BAFTA Award, voted for by the public.[19][20]

Temple had a supporting role in the 2015 true-crime film Black Mass, which starred Johnny Depp.

Temple had a supporting role in the 2016 HBO series Vinyl, playing an A&R assistant for the fictional American Century record company. The show is jointly produced by Mick Jagger and the producing team of Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter who had previously collaborated on Boardwalk Empire.

Personal life

In mid-2014, Temple lived in Los Feliz, Los Angeles, with her then-boyfriend, actor Michael Angarano, whom she met in 2012 during production of their film The Brass Teapot.[21] As of 2016, they are no longer together.[22]
