‘I was a very boring young girl,’ announces actress Felicity Jones cheerfully. I find that hard to believe. The engaging Birmingham actress, who got her start as a teenager playing Emma Grundy on The Archers and stars opposite Ralph Fiennes as Charles Dickens’s secret mistress in her latest film, The Invisible Woman, strikes me as anything but dull. But she insists: ‘It’s true, I was very earnest and focused from quite a young age – and geeky.’

Geeky is not a word that springs to mind either, observing the wide-eyed actress, who is 30 but looks 20, when we meet on a snowy New York afternoon at the hip Bowery Hotel. Felicity has modelled for Burberry and today is luminous in a Band of Outsiders blazer over a crisp white shirt and J Brand jeans.

‘At school I was called a swot. I always thought that if you just put your head down and got on with work you’d get away with far more [mischief] than if you were being explicitly naughty, so I studied,’ says Felicity.

Her mother, who worked in advertising, and father, a journalist, split up when she was three and Felicity lived in Bournville with her mother and older brother. ‘I’d see my dad every other weekend; I’ve always had a relationship with both of my parents.’ A stellar pupil at the girls’ school she attended, Felicity studied drama at an after-school workshop, began acting professionally aged 11 and landed the role on The Archers four years later. She won a place at Wadham College, Oxford, where her time was divided between literary pursuits (‘my passion was Virginia Woolf’) and her flourishing career.

Felicity has appeared on Total Film’s list of the 50 Most Exciting Actors of 2014, and here’s what they had to say:

#27 Felicity Jones

The Exciting Actor: Jones won the Special Jury Prize at Sundance in 2011 for her role in Like Crazy and has been making interesting movie choices ever since, including Albatross, Hysteria and Ralph Fiennes’ upcoming Dickens movie The Invisible Woman.

Why 2014 Could Be Their Year: Jones has been teasing us about her role in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 all year, and she’s still doing it.

Will she play Black Cat? If anybody was perfect for the role, it’s Jones. Fingers crossed.

If Felicity Jones should ever go missing, there’s probably a simple explanation: She’s just gotten lost wandering the streets of Los Angeles. “Without sounding like a granny, I love walking,” says the London-based actress. So much so that on a recent December morning, she found herself perhaps the only person on Sunset Boulevard who wasn’t in a car. “I go for walks to keep my feet on the ground, because after five hours of press you go slightly insane at the sound of your own voice.” So she popped out of the Chateau Marmont, where she’s been holed up promoting her new role as Charles Dickens’s mistress in the Ralph Fiennes–directed period drama The Invisible Woman. “And I nearly got run over three times.”

Returning to the hotel harried and late to lunch, she admits it was her own fault for jaywalking. “You get halfway out and suddenly there’s a truck in front of you,” she says. “But I hate the idea of taking longer on your journey when you can just nip across the road.”

In her work, though, a slow pace suits her fine. Three years ago, at 27, Jones seemed poised to follow fast-rising starlets like Carey Mulligan and Jennifer Lawrence from Sundance into the mainstream after the film festival awarded her a special jury prize for her performance in 2011’s Like Crazy, Drake Doremus’s mostly improvised romance about a young couple separated by visa problems. Since her initial breakthrough, she spent a brief, hot moment as a muse to Burberry, but as an actress she’s mostly stuck to independent movies, including Doremus’s 2013 Like Crazy follow-up, Breathe In, which debuted with a thud at Sundance and still hasn’t been released in the U.S. She turned down the lead role opposite Julia Roberts in Mirror Mirror to do an eighteenth-century German play, Luise Miller, on the West End.

Felicity has been featured alongside up and coming star Jeremy Irvine in the UK’s The Daily Mail. The short feature is accompanied by another pretty photo shoot.

From 1999 to 2009 Felicity Jones played Emma Grundy in The Archers, but her film breakthrough came in Ricky Gervais’s 2010 comedy-drama Cemetery Junction.

This year, Jones, 29, is set to play the title role in The Invisible Woman, a biopic about Charles Dickens’s mistress Nelly Ternan.

‘I’d grown up listening to The Archers, so my family were very happy when I got the part. It was quite strange eating your cereal and hearing your voice come onto the radio in the kitchen. I really enjoyed doing it, and it’s really good experience as an actor to concentrate on your voice.

‘Working with Helen Mirren on The Tempest in 2010 was such an inspiration – although for the first day, I couldn’t stop thinking I should be curtsying; it’s impossible not to see her as the Queen! Once you’ve recovered from that idea, she’s very straightforward and not intimidating at all. She’s someone I’ve grown up watching, respected and admired.

‘You realise sometimes, after a shoot, that you’ve been through a near-death experience.

‘Filming Cemetery Junction, I was with another actor, and we were running for a train in the scene. We had to run along the platform, then jump onto the moving carriage.

‘We did this several times, and then I lost my footing. I was about to fall between the moving train and the platform when the actor next to me, Christian Cooke, swooped down and hauled me back up. The irony was, there was a poster in the station pointing out exactly this hazard!’

BEST FILM ‘Skyfall (eight Bafta nominations) was excellent, and Argo (seven nominations) was great too.’

Later: Thanks to the very kind Ashley, we now have some screen captures from Felicity’s very first film The Treasure Seekers and from one of her newer movies Hysteria in the gallery.

Last night Felicity’s newest film Breathe In premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Felicity joined her co stars where she took part in 2 new photo shoots, attended the premiere and visited some special events. I have added the photo shoots and other photos to the gallery thanks to the very kind Nicole.

   

   

Finally, last week Felicity appeared in the daily London commuter newspaper the Metro. In the article Felicity opened up about the rumours surrounding the 50 Shades of Grey movie and it too features a lovely new photo shoot picture. Read a summary of the article here.

Felicity has been featured in today’s Independent Magazine (available in the UK when you buy The Mail on Sunday). The article features a lovely interview with Felicity and a gorgeous new photo by the talented Kalpesh Lathigra.

Maybe it’s how her eyes light up, all wide and innocent. Or maybe it’s the ever-so-slightly buck teeth revealed under that plump, up-turned top lip. Or, quite possibly, it’s the chirrup of a giggle that bubbles up in most of her performances. Felicity Jones has never had any problem in nailing likeable.

The British actress has charmed on screen, playing winsome ingénues (Miranda in Julie Taymor’s The Tempest; Catherine in an Andrew Davies’ telly adaptation of Northanger Abbey; Cordelia in the 2008 Brideshead Revisited) and relatable girl-next-door types (in Brit-com, Chalet Girl, 2011’s Sundance film festival favourite, Like Crazy, or low-budget British flick, SoulBoy).

The camera loves her, and so do critics – one even suggested Like Crazy, about the trials of long-distance relationships and having to choose between love and your career, didn’t really work because “any young man forced to choose between Felicity and [making] furniture would be on the first flight to Heathrow”. Audiences agree; there’s been a YouTube campaign for her to play Anastasia Steele in the movie of Fifty Shades of Grey, a role which seems an easy fit: the chosen actress must be totally gorgeous, and combine wide-eyed guilelessness with just a shade of feisty self-determination.

Last night Felicity attended a pop up Miu Miu Q&A Event alongside Harry Potter star Bonnie Wright to talk about her films. The full transcript and a photograph can be seen below.

Here is the full interview from lunch yesterday at George with Caroline Harvey, Felicity Jones and Bonnie Wright:

the–miumiu–london is a very collaborative event, as is film. What have you learned through collaborating?

Caroline Harvey: Film is so collaborative. Working with Felicity so closely has given me a new perspective on how I would write a character in terms of what she would need and the muscle of how you write one. Her questions have really guided me as I continue to write. We’re quite like-minded so we’re heading toward the same goals.

Felicity Jones: I’ve learned so much. I think we bring totally complimentary aspects: Caroline’s worked for years in script development and with incredible directors, and my experience is in front of the camera, so it’s been a healthy fusion of the two.

Caroline Harvey: I’ve always been in the office with the writer and the director and my set visits were few and far between. The set is quite an intimidating place for me. It’s a big thing to direct a film when you’re little and used to being in the office, and suddenly have one hundred people with you. So having Felicity as my partner and collaborator — somebody who isn’t scared by that environment at all — gave me a lot of confidence moving forward. That really helped me. And we’re friends anyway.

Yet another image from Felicity’s D&G campaign has made it’s way into our gallery alongside a larger version of the official poster photo.

Felicity also took part in a little interview with Vogue.it about the collection:

What do you immediately think about when you hear the word Animalier? (memories, fashion, painters, journeys)?
I immediately think leopard print! I love how this print which is so intrinsic to the brand’s heritage has become a motif in the make-up collection. I remember when the Animalier Bronzer launched a while back, so now to be face of the new and extended Animalier line is wonderful. Leopard print is so iconic in the Dolce&Gabbana world, it is striking and luxurious which I love about the brand – it is a print which will always be around, and in my opinion we should all have at least one item of leopard print in our wardrobes!

Does the typical Dolce & Gabbana woman look like you? What do you like about her?
To me the Dolce&Gabbana woman exudes complete confidence which is something I love about her. She is independent, charismatic and sensual. To me, she is a woman who feels beautiful in her own skin and captures the attention of those around her so effortlessly. I don’t think there is a specific look to The Dolce&Gabbana woman, but certainly much of her charm comes from the magnetic feeling she radiates. I love how Dolce&Gabbana has such a strong knowledge as to how to make women feel amazing in their designs, they have that magic formula – I instantly feel incredibly feminine and confident whenever I wear one of their pieces.


How do you usually make up?

I like to have fun with make-up, be experimental. I’ve been wearing lipstick more since it’s become more popular again. Lately I am in love the Passion Duo Collection; it has an eclectic, gorgeous palette of colours, something for every occasion. I alter my look according to what I’m wearing. I like the process of applying make-up – its cathartic. My favourite shade at the moment is Incognito from the new Passion Duo range. It’s a gorgeously vibrant red which is so easy to apply (always a bonus!) The pigment is really rich but it has a lovely hint of gloss which I love, it makes the look sensual yet soft and feminine.

Make up products you can’t renounce?
My essentials are black Khol eyeliner and Rosebud blusher. If ever I need a quick fix these are the products I turn to – I love a little definition on the eyes and a sweeping of pink on my cheeks. It makes me feel refreshed and a little more together when I don’t want to wear a full face of make-up. I can’t forget to mention the Nail Lacquers too – I have fallen in love with the gorgeous shades in the Animalier Collection, the Honey shade in particular is the perfect autumnal shade.


Animalier is byword of sensuality: what do you do, what do you wear, how do you act to be sensual? 

The reference for the Animalier look was 50s pin-up so it was very playful, irreverent, not too serious – and I think this is sensual in a more understated way. I wore a structured dress, a berry lip and a feline tick of eyeliner and it felt really powerful and that definitely helped me take on that sensual character.

Which is your favorite product of Animalier collection?
I think it has to be the Animalier Bronzer, to me it’s the true essence of Dolce&Gabbana Make Up – it instantly makes me feel really confident and glamorous. The bronzer give the skin a warm, radiant glow which works well on so many skin tones. I’m quite pale so tend to steer away from bronzers that could look too much, but this is just perfect – its subtle tones have a light shimmer which looks so lovely. It really brings the whole look together and, of course, the leopard print just screams: ‘Dolce & Gabbana’.

Which is the animal you look alike most?
I have no idea! Possibly when I wear the ‘feline’ cat’s-eye flick which Pat McGrath taught me to do with my eyeliner I take on that feline look!

Anecdotes and stories about the shooting backstage?
The shoot was incredibly intense and focused, but I felt relaxed at the same time. To help relieve the pressure we played some dance music which really helped! It’s about letting go and being in character. I adored working with Pat. Within seconds of looking at your face she can see how to make the best of it.  She’s doing the make-up for the film of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and I love that crossover between fashion and film. It made me more comfortable because she is someone who understands that an actress has to explore different roles.

My apologies for the slight delay in updates here at Captivating, while I was away Felicity shared some make up and beauty tips with Teen Vogue magazine and attended a Miu Miu event at Paris Fashion week on October 3rd.

What’s your beauty philosophy?
Let it be all about the eyes and keep the skin natural so your natural beauty can come through.

How would you describe your personal style?
Classic and simple, but with a little bit of edge.

Where do you get inspiration for hair and makeup looks you’d like to try?
The movies. I love French films and I copy things I see in them. I read magazines and also look at tumblr. I love nails, so I literally just search the word nails on tumblr and start looking.

What type of nail looks do you like to wear?
I love everything! I just bought a florescent green nail polish. I love glitter because it makes me feel about ten years old. I’m totally up for experimenting.

What’s your go-to makeup look for a red carpet event?
I always highlight my eyes and keep everything else neutral. I love blush! A strong black eyeliner and black eyeshadow can look cool too.

What products are always in your makeup bag?
Dolce & Gabbana blush, Dolce & Gabbana black mascara, MAC Lip Balm in Clear, and a concealer. My bag always weighs a ton. I carry my whole bathroom with me. You never know what’s going to happen in a day!

Can you describe a memory involving makeup from your teen years?
You know when you’re young and makeup becomes really exciting? Well, I was never really allowed to wear makeup. I was only allowed to wear clear mascara and Vaseline on my lips.

If you could go back in time and tell your teenage self one thing, what would it be?
Wear better clothes! Teens are so cool now. When I was like thirteen, I looked disastrous. I tried to be a skater and looked like an idiot. I even wore chains!

What’s your skincare routine like?
I always take off my makeup. My mother always told me to do this and I never go to bed without doing it. I use a good moisturizer and Mario Badescu face wash.

What’s your current favorite fragrance?
I have many, but right now it’s The One by Dolce & Gabbana.
