On returning to England the following year, she was ca-st in the role of “Mariette”, in the hugely successful television series “The Darling Buds of May” (1991-1993).

Following her success in the UK, Zeta-Jones left to conquer Hollywood and was soon noticed by the director, Steven Spielberg, who recommended her for a role in Martin Campbell’s “The Mask of Zorro”.

Not only was she nominated for a Golden Globe for “Best Supporting Actress”, she also met her future husband during filming. Michael Douglas, 25 years her senior, with whom she shares the same birthday, became the love of her life in 1999.

The couple were married in November 2000 and have two children together, a son, Dylan Michael, born in August 2000 and a daughter, Carys Zeta Douglas, born in April 2003.
