Natascha is a daughter of Michael Taylor and Noreen McElhone, who both worked as journalists. She grew up with her brother Damon, who now lives in Los Angeles and works as a scriptwriter, and also has two step-brothers, Alexander and Nicholas, who live in Stockholm, Sweden. Natascha’s parents divorced when she was two, and she moved with her mother to Brighton, England. McElhone took Irish dancing lessons between the ages of six and twelve, and went to the St. Mary’s Hall School for Girls in Brighton. Natascha later graduated from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art in 1993.

Meantime, McElhone debuted on the stage in 1990, with starring roles in “Richard III” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at the Open Air Theatre, Regent’s Park, London, and then played in “The Count of Monte Cristo” and “The Cherry Orchard” at the Haymarket Theatre, London. Her television debut came in 1990 when she played in two episodes of “The Ruth Rendell Mysteries”, and continued with minor roles in various series until 1996 when she starred in James Ivory’s “Surviving Picasso” alongside Anthony Hopkins and Julianne Moore. Natascha then became a more common figure in Hollywood films, appearing in “The Devil’s Own” (1997) starring Harrison Ford and Brad Pitt, and in “Mrs Dalloway” (1997) with Vanessa Redgrave. She ended the ‘90s with roles in Peter Weir’s Oscar-nominated “The Truman Show” (1998) alongside Jim Carrey, Ed Harris, and Laura Linney, and played a supporting role in “Ronin” (1998) with Robert De Niro and Jean Reno. Her net worth was rising sreadily.

In 2002, McElhone had parts in “Killing Me Softly” starring Heather Graham and Joseph Fiennes, and also in “Laurel Canyon” with Frances McDormand, Christian Bale, and Kate Beckinsale, and continued the same year with Matt Dillon’s “City of Ghosts” (2002), and the lead role in Steven Soderbergh’s “Solaris” (2002) with George Clooney, which only increased her net worth. In the mid-2000s, Natascha appeared in such movies as “The Other Boleyn Girl” (2003), in Charles Dance’s “Ladies in Lavender” (2004) with Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, and in the comedy “Big Nothing” (2006) alongside Simon Pegg and David Schwimmer. In 2005, McElhone played Sister Josepha Montafiore in Primetime Emmy-nominated TV mini-series “Revelations”. She ended the decade with “The Secret of Moonacre” (2008) and “Blessed” (2008) starring James Nesbitt.

McElhone also played alongside David Duchovny in the series “Californication”, appearing in 84 episodes from 2007 to 2014. She had notable roles in “The Kid” (2010), alongside Rupert Friend, “Thorne: Sleepyhead” (2010), and “The Sea” (2013) with Ciaran Hinds. Most recently, Natascha starred with Eddie Murphy in the comedy “Mr. Church” (2016), starred alongside Jonathan Rhys Meyers in “London Town” (2016), and is currently playing Alex Kirkman in the series “Designated Survivor” (2016- ).

Regarding her personal life, Natascha McElhone was married to plastic surgeon Dr Martin Hirigoyen Kelly from 1998 until his death in 2008 from cardiomyopathy; she had three sons with him. She later compiled and published a book of letters she wrote to him after his death – “After You” – essentially a diary of how the family was coping after their loss.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on '"Californication" (2007)'] David (Duchovny) always said the thing that drew him to the story originally was this idea that a couple met and they had 'it.' They had that thing, they had the spark. They were in love. And they lost it, destroyed it, and then tried to get it back. And couldn't. That maybe you don't get a second chance.
2I think TV, I think right now, and I speak for many shows. Not just our show. That TVs now in it's zenith. It's how the 70s were for movies-the 2000's are for TV. I think it's a phenomenal time for TV and to be involved in it. And I, as you know, this show slightly preempted me that curve, but God am I glad that it worked out that way. Because I really, I didn't have much experience with TV. I had mostly done movies and some plays. So I was very lucky to end up in a show that was not only successful, but was sort of groundbreaking in its own way, or at least it pushed some boundaries!
3My kids are still flourishing, it's remarkable to me. And growing and learning more and more. I did think that if perhaps the roots of the tree were gone, the branches would no longer flower, but they are. That's remarkable.
4I think the difference between finding happiness, or moments of happiness, is how you choose to interpret things. That's a rather shocking responsibility. That we're responsible for our own happiness. It's not those around us.
5Extraordinary things have come about since Martin's death. And I don't know if that's to compensate... it's also an attitude, it's how you look at things. It's a choice how you perceive the events of your life.
6Somebody said something wonderful to me the other day, Martin's best mate, he said, 'But Tash, you talk about status quo, there is no such thing as status quo, things change all the time, and if this hasn't taught you that...
7I always keep myself busy. I'm writing. Or I'm creating something. Or I'm doing stuff with the kids. I'm up incredibly early in the morning; I go to bed incredibly late at night.
8Now I'm the sole breadwinner... I have to work. I have to try and work non-stop, actually, to make things work.
9I think I was ambitious. I still am. A lot of the stuff that was coming my way was stuff I just didn't want to do, so it might have seemed like lack of ambition to shy away from that, but if it sticks in your throat... I just wanted to do what I wanted to do and which I thought said something.
10I wanted to know whether the character was going to be 'the wife' or 'the girlfriend', which bores me to tears and is endemic. I think it's incumbent on actresses to bring something else to the part which isn't in the script.
