While studying at the London School of private Godolphin, Kate, while still a teenager, twice awarded the prize the young writer named W. Smith – the first time in a short story, the second – for 3 poems. Already at school, Kate was fascinated by the actor’s craft.

In the autumn of the same year, Kate admitted to the University of Oxford by the French and Russian literature as a core competence. And though even then she was determined to become an actress herself, Kate still decided to expand their horizons, preferring a full university education training school of acting.

During his studies at Oxford, Kate co-starred in three films: during the Easter vacation in 1993, she managed to take part in the filming of historical drama Prince of Jutland (1993). During the same year she received a more significant role in the mystical drama “Without a cover” / Uncovered /. The third year of study at the University Beckinsale held in Paris, as part of the familiarity with the French language and culture.

The following year, Kate was invited to the adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel “Emma” / Emma /, as she starred in the comedy “Sell” / Shooting Fish /.
The real breakthrough for Beckinsale was the big-budget historical drama – a joint project of Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay – “Pearl Harbor”, which gave a strong impetus to his career as Josh Hartnett, who played along with Affleck and Beckinsale starring roles. Despite the rather lukewarm response from critics and mediocre script, the film grossed over $ 200 million worldwide, and the actors starring in the lead roles gained mega and multi-million army of fans. But initially the role of Evelyn was given to Charlize Theron, who, however, refused to participate in this project, preferring him shooting the romantic drama “My Sweet November”.
