From The Archers via Brideshead to major acclaim at Sundance, Chalet Girl star Felicity Jones is now a hot property.


When I arrive at the Soho hotel to interview Felicity Jones, there are two paps, Ian and Perry, lurking outside the entrance. They’re after Ed Westwick, Jones’s co-star in the new British romcom Chalet Girl who is best known for his role in Gossip Girl, and there’s also the prospect of a few leftover celebs from the film’s premiere the night before – Bill Nighy, who plays the father, and Brooke Shields, the mother. And what about Felicity Jones?

“Oh, she’s such a pretty little thing,” says Ian. “Tiny. Gorgeous.”

“What’s the name of that actress in Breakfast at Tiffany’s?” asks Perry.

Audrey Hepburn?

“Exactly, she’s got a real Audrey Hepburn look about her.” (Read More)

With another thank you to Nancy, I have added some more behind the scenes images from the filming of Chalet Girl, due out in March. Check them out in the gallery:

We have also learnt that the title role of Snow White, in Snow White and the Huntsman, for which Felicity was a keen favourite, has been given to Kristen Stewart instead.

According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR), the deal is not sealed but Universal made a firm offer over the weekend after several rounds of screen tests of competing stars.

And finally, I have now added scans from Felicity’s appearance in Tatler, which went on sale today – enjoy!

I bring with me a jam packed pretty picture update today! First and foremost, Felicity and Ed Westwick are due to appear in Tatler magazine, available to buy this Thursday, and a little sneak peak has been released. Lucky us!

They both began their acting careers with regular television roles.

And Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick and The Worst Witch star Felicity Jones look to be the epitome of Hollywood glamour as the pose together for a new photo shoot.

The hot young pair got cosy together for the Tatler magazine shoot to promote them hitting the big screen together for a new film, Chalet Girl.

Secondly, Nancy has very kindly sent over lots of new Chalet Girl stills which I have added to the gallery. Don’t forget to watch the film when it is released in cinemas next month!

Last, but certainly not least, with a huge thank you to Hilary I have replaced yesterday’s photo shoot with a higher quality version of the image.

The Independent has written a feature of Felicity, and published a brand new photo to go with it!

It is a long way from Borchester to Hollywood. But Felicity Jones, who worked her way into the nation’s affections playing village tease Emma Grundy in The Archers, is now being touted as the movie industry’s hottest young talent.

This weekend the 27-year-old Oxford-educated star of the long-running BBC Radio 4 drama was hailed as the leading light of the Sundance Film Festival when she was awarded a special jury prize for her performance in Like Crazy – an independent film about the joys and strains of a transatlantic love affair.

Having already been snapped up after its world premiere by Paramount Pictures last week, Drake Doremus’s quirky long-distance love film was also selected for a prestigious grand jury prize. Presenting the award, Ugly Betty star America Ferrera said: “The 2011 Sundance Film Festival will go down as the year of the actress.”

According to the LA Times, Ms Jones and her co-star Anton Yelchin “couldn’t be more appealing as they sort through their issues, green card and otherwise”. It is heady praise indeed for Ms Jones. As well as being the most talked about performer at Robert Redford’s independent film festival in Utah, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary, comparisons are also being drawn between her and fellow Briton Carey Mulligan, who similarly took Sundance by storm in 2009 for her role in An Education.

Ms Jones began her acting career at the age of 11 at the Central Junior Television Workshop in her native Birmingham and has been talked about as the heir apparent to Keira Knightley for some time. But while British audiences may know her best as serial heartbreaker Emma Grundy, success looks certain to lead to a deluge of offers for starring roles in 2011.

Yet it is unlikely she will have to go to the same lengths for her next part as she did for the last one. Aware that other actresses were chasing the Like Crazy part, she decided to show Mr Doremus exactly what she could do. “There’s a scene in the shower with no words, but it conveys so much and I felt it would get the director’s attention, so I clambered into my shower and shot the moment. I had a handy assistant to hold the camera and that was it,” she said. Having posted the home-shot video to Los Angeles, the rest was sorted out in a series of telephone calls with Mr Doremus.

In Like Crazy she plays Anna, a young British student who falls for an American while studying in Los Angeles. Their love is put to the test courtesy of the US’s notoriously bureaucratic immigration system.

Although Hollywood beckons for Ms Jones, she has insisted that The Archers retains a unique place in her affections and even covets a return. She first played the role of Emma Grundy (née Carter) when she was just 15, but gave it up last year, to be replaced by Emerald O’Hanrahan.

Her career as a child star was interrupted by her studies at Oxford, where she read English at Wadham College, though she continued to act. Since then, she has appeared in ITV1’s Northanger Abbey and a number of stage plays at the Royal Court Theatre and the Donmar Warehouse, where she starred in a revival of The Chalk Garden. Last year she was cast in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s Cemetery Junction. Later this year her fans will be able to catch her in romantic comedy Chalet Girl, alongside Bill Nighy.

Ms Jones was unable to collect her award in person as she had to return to the UK to finish filming for David Hare’s BBC film Page 8.

A press archive will be opening soon to house all these fabulous new articles!
