She was born on 4 January 1965 in Epsom in Surrey. She was a tomboy who was good at hockey, and went first into art school before turning to drama. She appeared in TV series Traffik and Capital City in 1989, then three made-for-TV films, before starring in her first feature, Peter Greenaway's The Baby of Mâcon in 1993, alongside Ralph Fiennes. Among the later pictures she's appeared in are:
Ormond has also produced a film, the 1996 Croatian-US documentary Calling the Ghosts, about the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. She has said that, like Godzilla and everyone else in the film industry, she'd like to direct.
