Oscar-nominated Charlotte Rampling most recently appeared in hit ITV drama Broadchurch, the BBC's London Spy and HBO's Dexter, and the feature film 45 Years.

Her career has spanned popular entertainment and arthouse cinema, having starred in English, French and Italian films from 1966's Georgy Girl (opposite Lynn Redgrave), to films with French director Fran├žois Ozon, including 2003's Swimming Pool.

Having shied away from biographies and autobiographies ('too personal') Rampling has now written Who I Am (first published in French) a lyrical, and intimate self-portrait via reminiscences. Highly personal, packed with photographs from her personal archive, Rampling recounts her childhood and youth as the daughter of an army officer (who won a gold medal for the 4 x 400 relay in the infamous 1936 Berlin Olympics), and the memories and passions that would inspire her life and later work as an actress.

Written in a style that gives a unique insight into her screen persona, it is an idiosyncratic and beguiling insight into one of the most consistently adventurous and interesting actors.

    Comments about Who I Am:

    I have been a fan of Charlotte Rampling for years and bought this book thinking that I would like to know more about her. It was most insightful but was written in the way of a conversation and was most unusual because most of what she said was implied and it was left to the reader to 'read between the lines'. I really enjoyed reading this book which will require several readings, it goes very fast and is a short book, to really understand what her life was like. I really loved this book - it is a keeper.
