July 21: Actress & “singer” Juno Temple is 24-years-old today.

Juno Violet Temple was born in London, England on 21 July 1989. She grew up in Somerset, England.

Temple began her career as a child actress in the 1997 film Vigo: Passion for Life. Another film directed by her father starred Juno in 2000 when she played Emma Southey in Pandaemonium. A few of her other film credits include Celia in St. Trinian's and St. Trinian's II: The Legend of Fritton's Gold, Drippy (Jennifer Logan) in Wild Child, and Jane Parker in The Other Boleyn Girl.

In 2009, Temple starred as Eema in the comedy Year One alongside Jack Black and Michael Cera. She also played Anna in Jaco Van Dormael's Mr. Nobody and Di Radfield in the adaption of Sheila Kohler's Cracks. She starred in Abe Sylvia's Dirty Girl, in 2010, at the Toronto International Film Festival, co-starring Milla Jovovich, Jeremy Dozier, William H. Macy, Mary Steenburgen and Tim McGraw.

In the final scene of the movie she sings the Melissa Manchester hit,  "Don't Cry Out Loud." (See below.)

Temple has also appeared in Kid Harpoon's music video "Milkmaid" and Plushgun's "Just Impolite."

In 2010, she appeared in an sketch for FunnyOrDie called "Cycop" which premiered on 12 July 2010 and featured the protagonist, from the indie film The Mother of Invention in a poorly made film of his creation. The sketch starred Temple, Andrew Bowser, Ryan Cartwright and Zelda Williams.

She also had a major role in the film Kaboom, first winner of the Queer Palm. In 2011, Temple appeared in Paul W.S. Anderson's 3D film adaption of The Three Musketeers, as Anne of Austria, the Queen Consort of France. In 2012, she appeared in The Dark Knight Rises as a "street-smart Gotham girl."

From Little Birds

She also portrayed Diane in the lesbian  tale Jack & Diane and appeared in the Elgin James film Little Birds. Temple and James worked on the film together for two years, becoming close. They continue to collaborate and in interviews refer to each other as "best friends" and "family." James has said he made Little Birds to honor the strong women in his life, including Temple.

In February 2013, Temple won the EE Rising Star BAFTA, voted for by the public. Also in 2013, she starred in Lovelace as Patsy- along with Amanda Seyfried who portrayed the porno star - and in Afternoon Delight as McKenna, a stripper who becomes a live-in nanny.
