I saw The Princess Diaries and was very impressed with Anne Hathaway's performance. Can you tell me more about her?

Anne Hathaway's first high-profile television role was that of Meghan Green on the Fox family drama Get Real. Her breakthrough movie role in Disney's romantic comedy The Princess Diaries followed last summer, and she co-starred in the independent feature The Other Side of Heaven. The 19-year-old Brooklyn native was in London shooting the big-screen adaptation of Charles Dickens' Nicholas Nickleby this spring. Next, she'll appear in Miramax's fairy tale, Ella Enchanted. Hathaway, who has appeared in Jane Eyre and several other theater productions, recently starred in an off-Broadway musical production of Carnival, for which she won the Clarence Derwent Award. An accomplished singer, Hathaway contributed a track to the score of The Princess Diaries. Her extensive training includes work with the Broadway Dance Center and the New Jersey School of Ballet. She lives in New York and attends Vassar College.
