Actress Juliet Rylance

She only has three movies to her credit as of this writing, yet Britain's Juliet Rylance is already held in great esteem.

She produced and acted in the 2013 movie Days and Nights, inspired by Anton Chekhov's The Seagull.  Though the film received negative reviews, Ms. Rylance earned plaudits for her performance as an artist's muse.

She also stars in the controversial movie A Dog's Purpose as the mother of a little boy who owns the dog that is reincarnated throughout the story.  Her character is named - I kid you not - Elizabeth Montgomery.

Her stage work includes lots of Shakespeare: as Juliet (how appropriate!) in Romeo and Juliet in London, and as Desdemona in Othello and as Rosalind in As You Like It, both in New York on Off Broadway.  The former performance got her a Lucille Lortel Award nomination  for Best Featured Actress.
