 Felicity Jones Biography

Felicity Jones is an English actress, best known to television audiences for her role as the school bully Ethel Hallow in the first series of "The Worst Witch" and its sequel "Weirdsister College." Jones also co-starred in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's feature "Cemetery Junction." She appeared in 2011 in the drama "Like Crazy" opposite Anton Yelchin and in the romantic comedy "Chalet Girl" opposite Ed Westwick.

After Kings Norton Girls School, Jones attended King Edward VI Handsworth School, to complete A Levels and went on to take a gap year (during which she appeared in the BBC series "Servants"). While studying English at Oxford, she appeared in student plays, including "Attis" in which she played the title role, and, in 2005, Shakespeare's "The Comedy of Errors" for the OUDS summer tour to Japan, starring alongside Harry Lloyd.

Jones was encouraged to take up acting by her uncle, the actor Michael Hadley. Her mother was also passionate about film and theater. She began acting at 11 years at an after-school workshop funded by Central Television. Jones appeared in the first series of "The Worst Witch," after which she was replaced by Katie Allen. She left the series because she missed home. When "Weirdsister College" began in 2001, Jones returned as Hallow. During the shooting of "Weirdsister College" she was just 17, lived in a flat in Richmond and had a private tutor to get her through her A levels. Her longest and probably best known role overall was on the BBC Radio 4 soap opera "The Archers," where she played Emma Carter (who is now played by Emerald O'Hanrahan).

In 2003 she starred as Grace May in the BBC drama "Servants." She took the leading role in the 2007 ITV adaptation of Jane Austen's "Northanger Abbey" and made her stage debut in Polly Stenham's "That Face" at the Royal Court Theatre in April 2007.

In 2008, she appeared in the films "Brideshead Revisited" and "Flashbacks of a Fool," the "Doctor Who" episode "The Unicorn and the Wasp" and a revival of Enid Bagnold's "The Chalk Garden" at the Donmar Warehouse theater in London. In January 2009, the five-part TV serial "The Diary of Anne Frank," in which Jones played the role of Margot Frank alongside Tamsin Greig (as Edith Frank-Holländer) and Iain Glen (as Otto Frank), was broadcast on BBC One. Later that year in May, she performed in a rehearsed reading of Anthony Minghella's "Hang Up" at the High Tide Festival. Jones played the role of Julie in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's 2010 film "Cemetery Junction." She also appeared in "Soulboy" and in Julie Taymor's big screen adaptation of "The Tempest" as Miranda.

In 2011, Jones won a Special Jury Prize (Dramatic) at the Sundance Film Festival for her performance as Anna in Drake Doremus's "Like Crazy." She had to do her own hair and make-up in the film, while the dialogue was entirely improvised. Her performance earned comparisons to Carey Mulligan's Academy Award-nominated role in "An Education." She also received the Best new Hollywood Award for this film at the 2011 Hollywood Film Awards. She appeared alongside "Gossip Girl" actor Ed Westwick in "Chalet Girl," a romantic comedy released in March 2011, for which she had to undergo two months of snowboarding training and work undercover in a chalet at St Anton, scrubbing toilets and partying at the Krazy Kanguruh bar in preparation for the role.

In 2011, Jones was announced as the new face of Burberry. In November, she was also announced as the new face of Dolce & Gabbana.

Jones co-starred in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," which was released in May 2014. She played Felicia Hardy; an assistant of Harry Osborn. In March 2014, Jones appeared as Dot, the daughter of Jessa's love interest Jasper, on the HBO Series "Girls." Personal life[edit] Jones currently lives in Bethnal Green, in London's East End, with her long-term boyfriend, Ed Fornieles, who is a sculptor and internet artist.[2][19] She and Fornieles met at Oxford when he was at the Ruskin School of Art.[2]
