Pierce Brosnan's last evil Bond-girl and Keira Knightley's beloved sister in Pride and Prejudice.
An Education, Pride and Prejudice, Barney's Version, Made in Dagenham
We like her
because she is the beautiful British girl who always nails the supporting parts, even though she has leading lady-quality.
Little Known Fact
She was the first choice for the role of Rita Skeeter in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but turned it down to play Jane Bennett in Pride and Prejudice instead.
Strangely enough, I don't think she had one just yet...she is consistently great in consistently good to great films...unfortunately she also gets consistently overlooked.
What does her career need ?
A baity role in an acclaimed director's film...if the film becomes a player, so could she.
