Felicity Jones, the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story actress, will take her place in the National Portrait Gallery with a specially-commissioned photograph shot at Walthamstow Marshes.
The striking image, taken by photographer Laura Pannack, was commissioned through the John Kobal New Work Award, a prize awarded annually to a photographer under 35 whose work is selected for display in the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition at the London gallery. Ms Jones chose a casual and relaxed style for her photograph, which was taken on a cold day at a reed bed in Walthamstow Marshes.
The London-based Pannack said: “‘Felicity was incredibly enthusiastic and really keen to contribute ideas to ensure the portrait was a creative collaboration.”
The portrait will go on display in the gallery next year.

In the many interviews Felicity is undertaking to promote Rogue One, Felicity has revealed how she stays healthy with such a busy film schedule.
The Theory of Everything star enjoys going to a place in East Londoncalled Frame because they have many classes, her favorite being box fit. She says she swims, which is an excellent exercise for the cardiovascular system and helps build strong arm muscles. And yoga helps her to unwind. The life of an actress can bring some very long days, so relaxing is likely needed for her after exhausting days on the set.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actress doesn’t have a diet per se. She starts her day with breakfast, making sure to never miss this most important meal of the day. She fills herself up with nutritious food, which is often an omelet, oatmeal, and whole wheat toast with tea or juice. Eggs and oats are a powerhouse duo because of all the protein, which not only keeps you feeling full longer, your body genuinely will be.
For lunch, Jones has some sort of lean protein, such as chicken or fish, with fruit and vegetables. This makes a great lunch because it combines protein with vegetables.
Dinner is often chicken or a tuna sandwich with some fresh soup. Tuna is an excellent source of protein due to its essential fatty acids, which are important to helping the body limit inflammation.
She loves food, so she likes to snack between regular meals. Snacks are mostly nuts, yogurt, and fruit. Every so often, she will indulge and give in to her cravings. Potato chips, muffins, and burgers are some of her favorite cheat day foods, but she will eat them in moderation.

Hello everyone, we are very sorry for the recent downtime and slow loading the site has had. The problem should now be fixed as I have moved the site to a new host which is much speedier! Sadly Metter, who was maintaining the site for the past year, has decided to step down and hand the site back to me. I originally began building Captivating back in 2009 before I took a break from running it in 2015, I’m still a huge Felicity fan and I’m really pleased to be back! As you can see I have also put up a new layout by my very talented friend Jennifer. Lot’s more additions and little changes will be happening over the next few weeks so please do hang around and let us know what you think of the new look in the comments!

As one of the most prestigious awards in cinema the BAFTAs do create a huge amount of excitement. I am delighted to share (though not surprised of course because we already know she’s brilliant) that Felicity has been nominated for the Leading Actress award! She is nominated alongside the also fabulous Rosamund Pike and the very experienced Reese Witherspoon.
I am sure you will join me in wishing her all the luck at this year’s BAFTAs!
Reese Witherspoon (Wild) and Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) have received nominations, along with Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), and will go against each other in the fight to win this year’s Leading Actress gong.
The other two actresses in the running are Julianne Moore (Still Alice) and Amy Adams (Big Eyes).
Speaking shortly after learning the news of her BAFTA nod, British actress Felicity told the Press Association from Los Angeles: ‘It’s midnight here. We’re just about to go to bed, but we’ve all been emailing each other and exclaiming with excitement.
‘I’m looking forward to celebrating with a glass of champagne and Skyping my family.’
Eddie Redmayne has also received a nod for Leading Actor for his role in the critically acclaimed biographical movie about Stephen Hawking’s life, The Theory of Everything.
The popular film has done well in the early stages of awards season, getting nominated across the board for various awards ceremonies, and it has received nine BAFTA nods in total: as well as Leading Actor, it’s up for Best Film, Outstanding British Film and Director for James Marsh.

While Felicity news is slow I decided to work on the finer details of the site. I have cleaned up our affiliates page so there is plenty of room if you feel like applying to join our link exchange.
I have also been searching for some tidbits about Felicity, and thus have updated the trivia and quotes pages at the site – I think you will like these!
Finally, we are looking for people to share their artwork which features Felicity with Captivating. If you have done any drawings, paintings or digital art that you would like to appear on the web site, please email it over to firstname.lastname@example.org.
