Actress Felicity Jones

Felicity Jones is a young actress from Great Britain.  She turned thirty in October 2013.

She has appeared in many movies, both televised and theatrically released, but she's probably best known for one movie so far - 2011's Like Crazy. She played Anna, a British college exchange student in Los Angeles who falls for an American student.  She decides to stay with him in LA for the summer, after graduation . . . unaware that her visa expires as soon as she gets her degree.

Ms. Jones' performance in this movie earned her Empire Award for Best Female Newcomer, a National Board of Review Award for Breakthrough Performance, and a Sundance Film Festival U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Prize for Breakout Performance.  The Detroit Film Critics Society Award nominated her for both a Best Actress award and a Brekathrough Performance award.

More recently, she played Charles Dickens' secret mistress, Nelly Ternan, in The Invisible Woman.  Ralph Fiennes, who directed, also played Dickens.
