Felicity Jones

This just might be her breakout year! Some are saying her starring role in LIKE CRAZY with Anton Yelchin is being compared to 500 Days of Summer and is possibly the sleeper indie film of the year.

LIKE CRAZY STORYLINE:A British college student falls for an American student, only to be separated from him when she's banned from the U.S. after overstaying her visa.

Felicity is also in Chalet Girl with Ed Westwick.

STORYLINE: Pretty tomboy Kim Matthews (Felicity Jones), 19, used to be a champion skateboarder - but now she's stuck in a dead end job trying to support her Dad. Opportunity comes knocking in the form of a catering job in the one of the most exclusive chalets in the Alps. At first, Kim's baffled by this bizarre new world of posh people, champagne and skiing - but then she discovers snowboarding, and the chance to win some much-needed prize money at the big end-of-season competition. But before she can become a champion again, Kim's going to have to dig deep to overcome her fears. Hard enough, without the complicating factor of Jonny, her handsome - though spoken for - boss...

She's also showing up in Albatross with Jessica Brown Findley.

STORYLINE: Beth(Felicity Jones), a bookish teenager, befriends Emilia, an aspiring novelist who has just arrived in town. Emilia soon begins an affair with Beth's father that threatens to have devastating consequences.

Felicity Jones has been in such period pieces as NORTHANGER ABBEY and THE TEMPEST honing her acting craft. There is something slightly Emily Browning about her. She's been acting since the late 90's and has been much a supporting character even in the mini series Diary of Anne Frank. She's been a guest star on DR. WHO.

She was born in Birmingham, England. In 2006 she graduated with a 2:1 (Second-class Honours, upper division) in English from Wadham College, Oxford, where she'd acted in a few student plays.
