Rhiana Griffith (2004)

Actress, artist and model Rhiana Jade Griffith was born on April 16, 1985 in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales, Australia. She began modeling as a child, doing runway work and catalogue ads, and progressed from there to television commercials.

From there, she got her first guest-starring role on the Australian medical drama Children's Hospital, and won her first film role, as Mercia in the 1998 film 15 Amore. Shortly thereafter, she won ModelQuest98's Grand Final for the 12-to-15 division, and was cast as Jack/Jackie in the Universal science fiction film Pitch Black.

Rhiana continued to act throughout her teenage years, balancing her career with schooling. She starred in Desperately Seeking Brandi, a short film that was broadcast on the Nike website to coincide with the 2000 Sydney Olympic games. Her costars in the film were Brandi Chastain and Oliver Ackland. That same year, she was also a guest-star on the Australian comedy TV series Backberner.

In 2001, she starred in the short film Search by director Hannah Hilliard. In 2002, she did a three-month guest-star stint on the popular Australian soap opera Home & Away and then guest-starred on an episode of the crime drama White Collar Blue. 2003 saw her appearing in a music video by rocker Ben Lee, called "Running With Scissors," directed by Nash Edgerton.

In 2004 she reprised her role as Jack/Jackie from Pitch Black in the anime The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury. For whatever reason, she and her character had been dropped from the feature film The Chronicles of Riddick, being replaced with a character named Kyra played by another actress, despite massive fan protests. However, she still ended up making an uncredited cameo as Jack/Jackie in the film, making her the only actress yet to appear in three Vin Diesel movies.

2004 also saw Rhiana embark upon her art career in earnest, with two major solo gallery showings. Her first, Chrysalis, was held at the Tighes Hill Gallery in Newcastle, Australia in January 2004. Her second, A Month in Kaos, was held at the Surry Hills Cafe 249 art gallery in Sydney, Australia in May, 2004. Rhiana also acted in another short film, A Whole New You, and guest-starred in an episode of the hit Australian medical drama All Saints. As the year came to a close, Rhiana portrayed Barbarella in print and television ads promoting the Flickerfest film festival.

In 2005, Rhiana held her third art exhibition, a collaboration with her brother, poet Damien Griffith, called Sibling Revelry. In conjunction with the art show, they released a limited-edition book of their work, pairing her paintings with his poems. Rhiana also contributed to a Wearable Art Festival, and will launch a line of clothing later in 2005. She is working on her second book, a children's book, for release in late 2005, and portrayed the starring role of Clare Newell in a short film, Wrong Answer, which will be continued in the psychological thriller called Volunteer, to be directed by JD Cohen.
