Rachel attended the Star of the Sea College, and after matriculating would attend Victoria College, graduating with a degree in Education in drama and dance. She then joined the community theatre group, the Woolly Jumpers during the start of her career. In 1991, she became part of “Barbie Gets Hip” which was shown at the Melbourne Fringe Festival.

Relatively unknown in the industry, Rachel was cast as best friends along with Toni Collette in “Muriel’s Wedding”; her performance there would gain critical acclaim and she won Best Supporting Actress at both the Australian Film Critics and the Australian Film Institute Awards. Two years later, she became part of “Jude” as a rude pig farmer’s daughter. In 1997, she then started controversy when she went to the Crown Casino opening uninvited and topless as a stand against the new casino. She then made her American film debut in “My Best Friend’s Wedding” which was directed by “Muriel’s Wedding” director PJ Hogan. In the same year, she played a Yorkshire prostitute in “My Son the Fanatic”, and then played cellist Jacqueline du Pre in the film “Hilary and Jackie” which would earn her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Her net worth started increasing significantly at this point.

In 2001, Griffiths appeared in “Blow” opposite Ray Liotta and Johnny Depp. She was then cast as one of the leads of “Six Feet Under” in which she played massage therapist Brenda Chenowith; her performance in the show would win her numerous awards including Screen Actors Guild Awards and a Golden Globe Award.
