Rachel attended the Star of the Sea College, and after matriculating would attend Victoria College, graduating with a degree in Education in drama and dance. She then joined the community theatre group, the Woolly Jumpers during the start of her career. In 1991, she became part of “Barbie Gets Hip” which was shown at the Melbourne Fringe Festival.

Relatively unknown in the industry, Rachel was cast as best friends along with Toni Collette in “Muriel’s Wedding”; her performance there would gain critical acclaim and she won Best Supporting Actress at both the Australian Film Critics and the Australian Film Institute Awards. Two years later, she became part of “Jude” as a rude pig farmer’s daughter. In 1997, she then started controversy when she went to the Crown Casino opening uninvited and topless as a stand against the new casino. She then made her American film debut in “My Best Friend’s Wedding” which was directed by “Muriel’s Wedding” director PJ Hogan. In the same year, she played a Yorkshire prostitute in “My Son the Fanatic”, and then played cellist Jacqueline du Pre in the film “Hilary and Jackie” which would earn her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Her net worth started increasing significantly at this point.

In 2001, Griffiths appeared in “Blow” opposite Ray Liotta and Johnny Depp. She was then cast as one of the leads of “Six Feet Under” in which she played massage therapist Brenda Chenowith; her performance in the show would win her numerous awards including Screen Actors Guild Awards and a Golden Globe Award. She also gained good reviews in her supporting role in “The Rookie” opposite Dennis Quaid. In 2006, Rachel was cast in “Brothers & Sisters” playing Sarah Walker, and her work in the show would earn her two Emmy Award nominations. She also had two Golden Globe nominations before appearing in the mini-series adaptation of “Comanche Moon”. In 2011, she made her Broadway debut in “Other Desert Cities”. One of her latest endeavors is trying her hand at television directing, doing three episodes of “Nowhere Boys”. Her consistent performances – and so being in demand – has meant a steady rise in her net worth.

For her personal life, it is known that Rachel married artist Andrew Taylor in 2002. They have three children, and her second pregnancy was written into the final season of “Six Feet Under”.

  • I’m pretty ruthless about that; I think when you sign over your story, you sign over your story.
  • I’m quite intuitive about what I pick. Often it’s to do with what I’ve just done and how I’m feeling.
  • I’m so motivated to collaborate with people and help them realise the kind of collective vision.
  • People going into the cities for the opportunities and the towns are getting older, no young people.
  • The filmmaker’s got to make it his story and the actors have got to make it their story.
  • You know Texas is – even more now that Enron has bit the dust – it’s held up on the back of small businesses.
  • Why movies are so powerful is because you are right in there and you stay in there until they want you to come out, and then you’ve really gone somewhere.
  • We grew up as kids watching those movies and we were exposed to themes of civil rights, unfairness, bigotry and fathers struggling against the kind of mob of the town, so you remember how you felt as a kid being taken seriously, that you are part of the human drama.
  • And I grew up watching all the British ones so when you hear that from an early age, it makes it much easier than you guys who don’t grow up with Australian television or British television.
  • I found it an interesting portrait of a marriage in exploring notions of how one partner supports the other, whilst not jeopardising the greater good – which is the family.
  • We’ve got our football where no one wears anything and the guys are in little shorts and they beat the crap out of each other, and they can catch it and they can kick it, and it’s the only place it’s played in the world.
  • There’s nothing as exciting as a comeback – seeing someone with dreams, watching them fail, and then getting a second chance.
  • It was a lovely opportunity for the first time in my whole career to stand up and thank people who are really responsible for me getting to realise my dreams.
  • I’m developing some screenplays at the moment with my Australian producer.
  • A Golden Globe is a mood-altering substance, there’s no doubt about that.
  • But just playing the partner of someone famous, I had a lot more freedom.
  • I grew up on cricket and I think Australian kids are getting so Americanized, you know?
  • I just don’t see where I could possibly fit in directing a feature.
  • I think a big part of our attraction to sport movies are the stories contained within the sports.
  • I think baseball – the baseball genre – is this mitt, to use a double pun there, to catch a whole bunch of themes.
  • I think family movies have gotten so rich in this country.


  • Lives on the northern beaches in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. [2000]
  • Lives in Los Angeles, California, USA. [2007]
  • Returned to work one month after giving birth to her daughter Clementine in order to resume filming Brothers & Sisters (2006).

  • Plays Dennis Quaid’s wife in The Rookie (2002) and Val Kilmer’s wife in Comanche Moon (2008). Quaid played “Doc” Holliday in Wyatt Earp (1994), and Kilmer played the same part in Tombstone (1993).
  • Plays Ermine Jung, George’s (Johnny Depp’s) mother, in Blow (2001), although she’s actually five years younger than Depp.
  • Graduated from Victoria College in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia with a bachelors degree in Education.
  • Married her husband in a moonlit ceremony, on New Year’s Eve in their hometown of Melbourne, Australia.

  • Rachel and her husband, Andrew Taylor, are reportedly donating all their wedding gifts and money from sales of their wedding photographs to the Sacred Heart Mission in Melbourne, Australia.
  • Announced her engagement to Australian artist Andrew Taylor. [June 2002]
  • Ran topless through Melbourne’s Crown Casino on its opening night in protest. Was asked by media why she felt the need to do so and replied :”If I didn’t flash my tits, you wouldn’t have put me in the paper!”
  • Once said to Bill Hunter, in a bout of insecurity, on the set of Muriel’s Wedding (1994), “I’m kinda waiting for them to find out that I can’t act”. He encouraged her with the reply, “Rachel, I’ve been waiting 40 years, and they never find out!”
  • Often mistaken for actress Juliette Lewis, to whom she bears a striking resemblance
  • Was involved with actor Eric Stoltz while in Wales filming Very Annie Mary (2001).
