Felicity Jones, a rising star, is officially breaking through into the acting spotlight and her new film, Like Crazy, a love story starring Jones and Anton Yelchin, is currently playing at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

You may know her from her 2008 role in Brideshead Revisited or her 2010 films, Albatross, Cemetery Junction, SoulBoy and The Tempest (as Miranda in the Shakespeare adaptation).  But now the versatile actress is expanding her repertoire again.

The 27-year-old British actress from Birmingham was born 19 January 1984 and went on to study English at Wadham College in Oxford.

While at school she appeared in many student plays such as Attis, in which she starred, and Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors.  She has also been on the television programmes The Worst Witch where she played Hallow and Weirdsister College with a reprised roll.  Her best-known roll was probably as Emma Carter on The Archers.

In 2008 Felicity was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Standard Theatre Awards for The Chalk Garden at the Donmar Warehouse.

This coming year alone her projects include Chalet Girl, which also stars Ed Westwick and Brook Shields, Hysteria, and an announced role in Page 8.  She is projected in 2012 to act in the films This Beautiful Fantastic, Trap for Cinderella, and a rumored Snow White and the Huntsman.

We’ve been watching Felicity for a while now, and her career seems to be blossoming before our eyes.  We can’t wait to see what else she has in store for the stage!
