About Oona Castilla Chaplin

She is a Spanish actress, flamenco dancer, and ballerina. Castilla is also the granddaughter of Charlie Chaplin, and uses the stage name Oona Chaplin.

Chaplin, who was named after her grandmother Oona O'Neill, the fourth wife and widow of Charles Chaplin, is the daughter of Geraldine Chaplin and the Chilean cinematographer Patricio Castilla. She grew up in Switzerland and Madrid and from age 15, she was educated, primarily in art history and dance, at Gordonstoun in Duffus. At the age of 17, she impersonated her grandfather in a school play, an adaption of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Edinburgh International Festival. After leaving Gordonstoun she was accepted to study at the famous RADA. One of her first cinema appearances was a cameo appearance in the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace. Oona was considered for the role as the main Bond girl, however the role eventually went to friend Gemma Arterton. Starting with a small role in the comedy Inconceivable, from 2007 onwards, she professionally worked with her mother. Together with her first leading role, in the horror movie Imago Mortis, these have been the first collaborations of two Chaplins on screen for decades.
