Back in Hollywood Fairuza starred in a string of movies, including Gas, Food Lodging (1992), for which she received an Independent Spirit Award for Best Actress.

Following further TV and film work, she achieved cult status with her starring role as a teenage witch in The Craft (1996), her breakout film. Moreau (1996), in which she did some belly dancing and attracted the attention of Lancashire, England-born co-star David Thewlis.

Her father, Solomon Feldthouse, was a traveling musician and her mother, Cathryn Balk was a belly dancer.

Her parents split up soon after and Fairuza grew up just north of San Francisco, California, on a commune-type ranch.

But she was also already choosing the creepiest cute kid roles around.

The decorators are working on David Thewlis's London flat so all his possessions are stacked, in a towering, shrouded heap, in the middle of the dancefloor. Seven years ago, as developers carved up these ornate Victorian offices on the edge of the City, Thewlis bought the ballroom (all companies should have one): a hangar of a space with a parquet floor as broad as an ice rink and a distant ceiling so covered with fancy twiddles of cornicing that it looks like the work of a master baker. Not that he has thrown that many here, but the ones he has had have been, um, pretty memorable, so much so that he is not exactly popular with the building's other residents.

Having just returned from Budapest, where he has been playing a Nazi commandant in Mark Herman's The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, a film based on John Boyne's novel, Thewlis is expected next in Manchester, on the set of The Street, Jimmy Mc Govern's dark Bafta award-winning BBC series in which he will play identical twins.

'It's great to do all the Harry Potters [he plays Remus Lupin, the reluctant werewolf], it's great to play Nazis or wicked kings and detectives, but this feels more like the stuff I used to do, the sort of stuff I got known for initially: northern TV dramas, Mike Leigh,' he says, acknowledging that he may never find another project to match Leigh's Naked (which, in 1993, won Thewlis the best actor award at Cannes).

At the age of 11, she was chosen from out of 1,200 girls to play the part of Dorothy, starring in Return to Oz (1985).

A year later she starred as, The Worst Witch (1986) TV version, a harbinger of her breakout role in The Craft (1996) ten years later.
