Hayley Atwell’s career gained momentum with starring roles in two big hits in 2008, The Duchess and Brideshead Revisited. Her breakout role in The Pillars of the Earth (2010) was nominated for the 2011 Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Mini-series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Not only because of her English rose looks and her quaint accent made her a household name, but also her undeniable talents. This summer, she is going to lead in action-adventure film Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) as Peggy Carter, the superhero’s girlfriend who secretly worked for the French Resistance.

Hayley is a native Londoner and chose her career path when she turned down her place at King’s College where she would have studied theology and philosophy, instead choosing to train at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Wise choice we think!

Hayley has appeared in theatre and television series after graduating, most notably Dr. Who and Mansfield Park. In January 2009, she made her West End début in Lindsay Posner’s revival of A View from the Bridge at the Duke of York’s Theatre, which earned her a Laurence Olivier Award Nomination.

MTV Networks’ NextMovie.com named Hayley one of the “Breakout Stars to Watch for in 2011.” Her talents and uprising popularity definitely paved her a wider and more thrilling future career path. This British rising star and her role in Captain America: The First Avenger are definitely worth to watch this summer!
