Rogue One star Felicity Jones gets photo in National Portrait Gallery

She has journeyed from Ambridge, which was rocked by her character’s wild affairs with both the young Grundy brothers, to Hollywood, where she is one of the most exciting and in-demand stars.

From 2017 the Birmingham-born actor Felicity Jones will also take her place in the National Portrait Gallery in a new commission through the John Kobal new work award.

In the same week that Jones, 33, can be seen in cinemas as the lead in the new Star Wars film, Rogue One, the NPG unveiled a new photographic portrait, which will go on display next year.

It was taken by the photographer Laura Pannack among the reeds of the Walthamstow Marshes in north-east London.

Pannack said the marshes were near her home and were chosen over other park-based locations because they “felt more unusual and emotive. We both agreed it felt wildly atmospheric.

“Felicity was incredibly enthusiastic and really keen to contribute ideas to ensure the portrait was a creative collaboration.” Read More

The Rise of Felicity Jones: Inside Her Year of Oscar Buzz, Tom Hanks and ‘Star Wars’

If Felicity Jones is having a moment, it’s the type that stretches the very definition of exactly how much time a “moment” consists of. She’s been having this moment for years now, ever since she won the Special Jury Prize at Sundance in 2011 for the indie gem, Like Crazy. It’s a moment that saw her earn her first Academy Award nomination in 2015, for The Theory of Everything. All that being said, 2016 may have been her best year yet, career-wise.

“Look, I have a smile permanently on my face,” the 33-year-old actress recently trilled to ET, pointing to her cheeks, which were in fact dimpled in happiness. “I’m just enjoying it. I love what I do, and it’s lovely to hopefully keep doing. I’m enjoying every minute. It’s a real ride.”

It likely doesn’t feel like a moment anymore, but the Birmingham-born actress is having quite a year: She co-starred alongside Tom Hanks in the third Da Vinci Code film, Inferno, and earned early Oscar buzz for playing a dying mother in the haunting festival darling, A Monster Calls. To cap it off, Jones saved that galaxy far, far away in Star Wars’ first stand-alone “Story,” Rogue One.

Director Ron Howard enlisted Jones for Inferno to play Sienna Brooks, a doctor who attempts to help our hero, Robert Langdon (Hanks), recover his memories as the two go on the run together. And run they did, through Venice and Florence and Budapest, with Jones wearing heels the whole time — to much less fanfare than, say, Bryce Dallas Howard got in Jurassic World.

“Running in heels takes a lot of skill. But it’s something that us women have to get used to,” Jones told ET at the film’s junket in Italy. Heels were a necessity, she explained, mimicking the confusion she would have caused had she worn flats: “Who’s that midget that’s running next to you, Tom?” Read More



Felicity Jones will host the first SNL of 2017

Fresh off stealing the Death Star plans, Felicity Jones will find herself as host of the next Saturday Night Live.

Jones, who stars in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, will emcee the first SNL episode of 2017, on Jan. 14 of next year.

Sturgill Simpson will act as the show’s musical guest.

This will mark Jones’ first time as host of Saturday Night Live. The actress, an Oscar nominee for The Theory of Everything, plays Jyn Erso in the new Star Wars film, the leader of a group of rebels who conspire to steal plans for the Death Star — an event that leads directly into 1977’s Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.
