Felicity Jones Interview – Rogue One – “We very rarely see a woman like this in film”
In a matter of two years, Felicity Jones has hardly had time to catch her breath. Her Oscar-nominated performance in The Theory of Everything transformed her career from that of a relatively obscure British actress into a major Hollywood star.
Q: How did you imagine your character and her background?
JONES: You need to embrace her past and have a firm grasp of her psychology and sense of determination. While I was playing her, I saw her as being very tough and decisive and I tried to capture that attitude and portray her as an extraordinary heroine. We very rarely see a woman like this in film.
