“It’s nice playing someone who maybe morally isn’t always acting in the best way.” Felicity Jones has made her name playing ambiguous characters in low-budget indies like Breathe In and Like Crazy, for which she won a Sundance award.
But she might be about to become a Hollywood name. The 30-year-old British actress is appearing in upcoming blockbuster The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – although her role has been kept under wraps.
In an interview for the 2013 movie The Invisible Woman – in which she starred alongside Ralph Fiennes as Charles Dickens’s secret lover – Jones revealed she would be wearing a costume in the superhero sequel, leading to suggestions she might be appearing as the Black Cat.
Jones talks to Tom Brook about keeping her role a secret, as well as playing roles with a darker edge.
