When Felicity Jones was about 5 or 6 years old, one of her favorite things to wear was a pink bathing suit with a belt around the middle. One of her favorite things to do, while clad in this amazing outfit, was to climb to the highest diving board at the pool and fearlessly fling herself into the water below.

“I was like a little piggy floating through the air,” she told Parade.com during a recent interview at the Roxy Hotel in New York City. Why are we not surprised she ended up playing a showstopping, stunt-pulling hot air balloon pilot in The Aeronauts?

However, it hasn’t been a consistent climb to get to this point. At 36, the Birmingham, England, native said she isn’t quite so quick to find the highest point on a structure and stare down at what awaits her below: “Now, I would think twice…I’ve become more fretful. Now in high hotels or buildings I think, ‘Where’s the exit?’”

For her latest film, though, she had to access a little of her inner 5-year-old daredevil.

In The Aeronauts, Jones plays the fictional aeronaut Amelia Wren, who in 1862, attempts to fly higher than any human has ever gone. She is joined by non-fictional scientist James Glaisher, played by Eddie Redmayne.

Jones’s character, she explained, is based on real-life, 18th-century French aeronaut Sophie Blanchard, who would put on big shows complete with fireworks as she charmed audiences from the air. At one point in the movie, Jones, as Wren, has to climb to the very top of the balloon, which is a scene that will make anyone—fearful of heights, or not—queasy. This is the scene that clinched it for Jones; she wanted to be the woman to complete that feat onscreen.

“It felt like there was a real kind of responsibility to bring this woman aeronaut to audiences, and I loved the scene toward the end where she climbs on top of the balloon—not to give anything away—and the blend of emotion and action,” she says.

Wren is a young widow, much like the real Blanchard whose husband fell to his death after having a heart attack while they were flying in a balloon over the Hague. As the film progresses, audiences learn that Wren’s husband’s death was also a traumatic one that left her with a lot of pain. Even still, she slaps on stage makeup, climbs to dangerous points of the balloon and waves to the audience as she and her flying partner take off high into the sky. She even attaches a parachute to her dog and sends it floating down to a mesmerized crowd.

How does someone have the energy to be that level of an entertainer while still harboring so many painful memories? “She’s naturally a businesswoman, and she knows that the show helps get the audience involved and gets the tickets, which helps fund the balloons, so there’s a real agenda going on when she’s doing her entertainment,” Jones said. “I think that’s what was so intriguing about her. She’s exploring these emotional traumas, but she’s doing it in a very physical way. Her climbing to the top of the balloon is overcoming the death of her husband, and she’s overcoming those fears.

This film is the second that Jones has appeared in with Redmayne, who played Stephen Hawking to her Jane Hawking in 2014’s The Theory of Everything. Seeing the two of them reunite for a film five years later has a sort of Tracy-Hepburn quality about it.

“We’d been looking at other actors in history who had reunited, and there was something sort of classic Hollywood about doing that,” Jones said. “You put all that work and that time into building that trust. It felt like it was so nice to come back to something that was already known; at base it was a wonderful actor.”

Jones’s character certainly needed the support of Glaisher while they were on a death-defying flight high into the air. When it comes to real life fears and anxieties, Jones doesn’t need to climb high up in a balloon to get over them, but she has her own tactics.

“I find embracing [fears] is the way to get past them,” she said. “I think there’s a lot of truth in that. It’s no longer a fear—is it?—once you’ve got to the bottom of something.” [Source]
