Ormond was born in Epsom, Surrey, the daughter of Josephine, a laboratory technician and John Ormond, a computer software designer. She attended independent schools, first Guildford High School and then Cranleigh School, where early lead performances in Guys and Dolls and My Fair Lady began to draw special attention.
Ormond's stage credits include The Rehearsal, Wuthering Heights, The Crucible, Christopher Hampton's Faith, Hope and Charity, for which she won the London Drama Critics' Award for Best Newcomer, and David Hare's My Zinc Bed, for which she won an Olivier Award nomination for Best Actress.
Her film credits include Jerry Zucker's First Knight; Captives with Tim Roth; Legends of the Fall with Brad Pitt, Anthony Hopkins and Aidan Quinn; Sydney Pollack's Sabrina with Harrison Ford; Resistance and Bille August's Smilla's Sense of Snow.

Her TV credits include HBO's Stalin, Iron-Jawed Angels and Temple Grandin, the drama series Traffik, Varian's War and Animal Farm. She has an independent production company, Indican Productions, based in New York City, and she executive-produced the Cinemax Reel Life documentary Calling the Ghosts: A Story of Rape, War and Women, which won a CableACE Award and a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, and was an official selection of the Toronto and Berlin International Film Festivals. Ormond appeared as a guest star during the 2008-09 season of the CBS Crime Scene Investigation series, CSI: NY. She guest starred in the tenth and final season of USA Network's hit series, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, starting on May 1, 2011.
She starred in four projects released in 2008. She was reunited with Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and also appeared with Benicio del Toro in Che, with Abigail Breslin in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl Mystery, and with Bill Pullman in Surveillance, working with acclaimed directors such as David Fincher and Steven Soderbergh in two of the these projects.
Ormond married Rory Edwards, an actor she had met while performing in a production of Wuthering Heights. The marriage ended in 1994. In 1999, she married political activist Jon Rubin. The couple's first child, daughter Sophie, was born in the autumn of 2004. She is no longer married to Rubin.
Ormond has been an activist engaged with fighting human trafficking since the mid-1990s, and has recently partnered with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. She is also an advocate for Transatlantic Partners Against Aids, which attempts to raise awareness about AIDS in Russia and Ukraine, and is founding co-chairman of FilmAid International.
On 2 December 2005, Ormond was appointed as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador. Her focus has been on anti human-trafficking initiatives, raising awareness about this modern form of slavery and promoting efforts to combat it. In her capacity as ambassador, Ormond has appeared as council to the United States House of Representatives, Committee on International Relations, Subcommittee on Africa,[dead link] Global Human Rights and International Operations, and has travelled the world as an ambassador.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
