Get to know the name Felicity Jones, because she is about to become one of the biggest actresses in the world. The 32 year old British actress only made her major motion picture debut 8 years ago, but ever since then, she’s been on a steady ascension to stardom.
Starting with her role as Felicia Hardy, AKA The Black Cat, in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Jones has been grabbing bigger and bigger roles ever since. In 2014, she starred in the Theory of Everything as Jane Wilde Hawking, and received widespread praise for her performance, including an Academy Award nomination. In 2015, she starred in True Story alongside James Franco and Jonah Hill.
Now, in 2016, she has 4 (!!!) movies coming out, one of which is the starring role in the upcoming epic Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. She’ll also be starring alongside American icon Tom Hanks in Inferno, the latest movie in The DaVinci Code film series.
I think it’s safe to say that once you’re starring in Star Wars and alongside Tom Hanks, you’ve made it.
