This week, we look at an up and comer to the cinematic stage with Felicity Jones. Jones first caught fan boy’s eyes when she played Felicia Hardy in the Amazing Spiderman 2 though unfortunately no sign of the Black Cat. She then went on to star opposite Eddie Redmayne in the Theory of Everything, the latter of which won the Academy Award for Best actor for playing Stephen Hawking. Jones played his wife, Jane Hawking.
Up next, Felicity will surely wow us in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as the lead character of Jyn Erso, a female leader of a team of rebels who will attempt to steal the plans for the Death Star (I wonder how that plays out). Jones will play the second strong female lead in a Star Wars film since the property was bought out by Disney which is really cool, solidifying her status as strong female role model to all the fan girls and a few boys too which is pretty awesome.
