Felicity Jones as Mom

Felicity Jones is best known for her BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild, Golden Globe, and Academy Award-nominated starring role opposite Eddie Redmayne in James Marsh’s The Theory of Everything, also for Focus Features.

Ms. Jones next stars in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, directed by Gareth Edwards; Ron Howard’s Inferno, opposite Tom Hanks; and Collide, opposite Nicholas Hoult and Ben Kingsley.

American audiences first took notice of her in 2011 as the star of Drake Doremus’ romantic drama Like Crazy, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival to critical acclaim, earning the Grand Jury Prize for American Dramatic Film and earning her a Special Jury Award for Acting.  Ms. Jones subsequently went on to win the Gotham Independent Film Award for Breakthrough Actor, the National Board of Review Award for Best Breakthrough Performer, and the Empire Award for Best Female Newcomer. 

Her other feature credits include The Invisible Woman, in which she starred with Ralph Fiennes, who also directed; Rupert Goold’s drama True Story, opposite Jonah Hill and James Franco; Breathe In, which reteamed her with director Drake Doremus; Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2; Julie Taymor’s film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest; Stephen Merchant’s Cemetery Junction; and Julian Jarrold’s Brideshead Revisited.

Ms. Jones’ extensive television credits include David Hare’s telefilms Page Eight and Salting the Battlefield, both with Bill Nighy; the critically acclaimed BBC adaptation of The Diary of Anne Frank and Jane Austen’s Northhanger Abbey, both directed by Jon Jones; and a guest-starring role on HBO’s hit series Girls.

A veteran of the stage, she recently earned rave reviews in Michael Grandage’s Donmar Warehouse production of Luise Miller.  Additional theater credits include Jeremy Herrin’s staging of That Face, at the Royal Court; and The Chalk Garden, also directed by Mr. Grandage at the Donmar, which earned Ms. Jones an Outstanding Newcomer nomination at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards.
