Who is Radha Mitchell?

Radha Rani Amber Indigo Ananda Mitchell was born on 12 November 1973, in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, and is an actress, best known for finding popularity in several Australian television series and films, before making her breakthrough in Hollywood films.

The Net Worth of Radha Mitchell

How rich is Radha Mitchell? As of mid-2018, sources estimate a net worth that is over $4 million, mostly earned through a successful career in acting. Some of her most notable films include “Phone Booth”, “Finding Neverland”, and ‘Silent Hill”, and as she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.

Beginnings – Early Life, Education, Career

Radha was born into a family that was very familiar with the entertainment industry, with her mother working as a fashion designer while her father was a filmmaker. However, her parents divorced when she was young. According to an interview, Radha’s name comes from Hinduism and other names she has originate from India based on her mother’s experience exploring India during the 1970s. She would go on to attend St. Michael’s Grammar School and would complete her studies in 1992.

Prior to completing her studies, she was already getting acting work, starring in the television show “Sugar and Spice”, set in the 1920s and revolving around two 11 year-olds from the Australian bush (rural region). After completing school, she would then have a guest role in “Neighbours” and would later return to the show when she was given the role of Catherine O’Brien. The story often revolves around the domestic and professional lives of people who supposedly live in a typical suburb of Melbourne, Victoria.

Hollywood Breakthrough

In 1997, Mitchell started gaining Hollywood roles, aside from her local roles in Australia. She became a part of two Independent Spirit Award winners, namely “Everything Put Together”, and “High Art”. One of her first notable Hollywood films was “Pitch Black” in which she starred alongside Vin Diesel; the film is about a dangerous criminal being transported to prison but was damaged by comet debris and has to make an emergency crash landing on a desert planet o which predatory aliens live in. Her next film would be “Phone Booth”, appearing alongside Colin Farrell in a story about a young publicist being put in a conflict inside a phone booth when a sniper decides to call him; the film was a box office hit.

Mitchell then starred opposite Denzel Washington in the film “Man on Fire” which is a crime thriller based on the 1980 novel of the same name by A.J. Quinnell. She would then gain a lot of recognition for her performance in the Academy Award winning film “Finding Neverland”, which also starred Kate Winslet and Johnny Depp in a film based on the play by Alan Knee, “The Man Who Was Peter Pan” depicting the life of J. M. Barrie, and his inspiration for creating “Peter Pan”.

Later Work

Radha then worked alongside Chloe Sevigney as co-stars in the film “Melinda and Melinda”, before appearing with Josh Hartnett in the film “Mozart and the Whale”. Afterwards, she would become a part of the film adaptation of the video game “Silent Hill” alongside Sean Bean and Laurie Holden, which follows a woman and her daughter as they go to Silent Hill. The film received mixed reviews but took a lot of money at the box office. In 2008, she had parts in several films, including “Rogue”, “Henry Poole Is Here”, and “The Children of Huang Shi”, which also stars Jonathan Rhys-Meyers.

In 2010, she was cast in “The Waiting City”, directed by Claire McCarthy, and for her performance she would win Best Actress at the Antipodes Film Festival held in St. Tropez, France. In 2013, she had a lead role in the series “Red Widow”, before appearing in the film “Olympus Has Fallen”, starring Gerard Butler and which depicts a North Korean assault on the White House, and she would go on to reprise her role in 2016’s “London Has Fallen’. Some of her recent projects include “The Darkness” and “Swinging Safari”.

Personal Life

It is known that Mitchell was previously in a relationship with New Zealand actor Martin Henderson in 2006, but they broke up and there haven’t been any reports of whom she has been linked with romantically since. Radha practices yoga and is also a vegetarian, and although she also practices Hinduism, she has stated that she doesn’t follow one religion in particular, with her parents being Christians. There was also a point in her life during which she didn’t want to watch any movies, but got back into it after meeting filmmakers, which reignited her love for films.

1[Explaining why she dropped the Rani] ... on my first day of school. Someone asked me if my name was Macaroni.
2I went through a phase of not wanting to watch any movies at all, and lately I've got back into watching films, I think because I meet people that make them all the time, and I feel like if I've seen their movie I know more about them, and it's a better discussion to have. And in doing that I rekindled my love of movies.
3Any situation today could be a tragedy or a comedy, it just depends on the mood that you're in when you're experiencing it, and the mood of the storyteller who is telling it.
