Catherine Zeta-Jones biography

David Jones, the owner of a candy factory, and his wife Patricia, a seamstress, gave birth to Catherine Zeta-Jones on September 25, 1969, in Swansea, Wales. Her mother is Irish Catholic and her father is Welsh. She was given the names Catherine Fair and Zeta Jones, which were taken from the names of two ships that her great-grandfather sailed.

Lyndon, her younger brother, was a sales representative before he decided to pursue a career in film production. She has two brothers: David, her older brother. She was raised in Swansea’s Mumbles neighbourhood. Zeta-Jones’ mother enrolled her in the Hazel Johnson School of Dancing when she was four years old because of her hyperactive nature.

She received her education at Swansea’s Dumbarton House School, a private institution. The family had a low income before winning £100,000 in a bingo game, which allowed them to pay for their daughter’s dance and ballet tuition.

Zeta-Jones began performing in school plays at a young age, and she caught the attention of the local media when her performance of a Shirley Bassey song won the Junior Star Trail talent contest.

She frequently travelled to London with a dance group where she attended theatre auditions. In the original West End production of the musical Annie, Zeta-Jones was cast as July, one of the orphan girls, when she was nine years old. In her early teens, she won the national tap dance championship. In a Swansea production of the musical that took place at the Swansea Grand Theatre in 1981, she portrayed Annie in the title role.

In a West End production of 42nd Street in 1987, Zeta-Jones, then seventeen, was chosen to serve as the second understudy to the main actress. In one of the performances, Zeta-Jones was requested to take on the role of Peggy Sawyer—a chorus girl who becomes a star—because the star and the first understudy were both unable to perform.

She was given the part for the next two years after the producer was impressed by her acting skills. Her subsequent performance was as Mae Jones in Kurt Weill’s Street Scene with the English National Opera at the London Coliseum in 1989.
