Nicholas Hoult Felicity Jones

In the high-speed car-chase thriller Collide, Nicholas Hoult plays a guy who goes to extreme lengths to pay for emergency medical treatment for his girlfriend, played by Felicity Jones. "I would describe it as thrilling and exciting," Hoult says. "It's an action-packed rush!"

The 27-year-old has been acting since he was a young boy, and enjoys drawing on his experiences. "I've managed to work with a lot of people I look up to," he says. "I remember while shooting the last X-Men watching James McAvoy do a couple of scenes, I was thinking 'Damn, this guy is so good,' and then being like, 'Oh sh*t! Nick, don't forget that you're in it too!'"

Felicity Jones Opens Up About Her Gruelling Fitness Regime For 'Rogue One'


Star Wars Felicity Jones

Having slayed the box offices on both sides of the Atlantic in the new Star Wars spin-off Rogue One, Felicity Jones opened up about the intense training regime she undertook in order to play the movie’s lead character, Jyn.

“After I got the call from Gareth [Jones, director] I was obviously ecstatic, but then I thought, ‘I’ve got to get to the gym REALLY quickly, I’ve got to get in shape for this film!’”

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opened in the U.K. on December 15th, and is intended a spin-off from the Star Wars canon, and Jones’ character leads a mission to steal the blueprints from the Empire’s new weapon the Death Star, meaning this is probably set immediately before the events of the first ever Star Wars film A New Hope.

Felicity Jones Was Inspired By Princess Leia For Rogue One


Felicity Jones

After being Oscar-nominated for her role in 2014's The Theory of Everything, Felicity Jones takes a surprise trip into space for the Star Wars spin-off Rogue One. But she thinks her character Jyn Erso is just as complex as anyone she's played.

"Jyn was a bit of a child delinquent," she laughs. "She has grown up without her parents. She's had to survive on her own a lot of the time. But she's also very perceptive. She kind of has an animal awareness, and acts on her feelings."

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Review

Extraordinary

With the tagline "A Star Wars Story", this first spin-off from the saga isn't actually a stand-alone movie. It requires some understanding of the context as it chronicles events that lead directly into 1977's Episode IV: A New Hope. It's also a seriously rousing action film with a riveting cast of characters and a surprising willingness to embrace even the darkest elements of storytelling. In other words, it might be the first Star Wars movie made specifically for grown-ups.

It opens as the Empire is systematically crushing the rebellion, leaving them wondering if there's any point to continuing the fight. Rumours are swirling that the Empire is building a massive Death Star, and rebel Jyn (Felicity Jones) discovers that it was designed by her long-lost father Galen (Mads Mikkelsen), who sends her a message saying that he left a flaw in the system specifically for the rebels to exploit. So she joins a team to contact him, led by Cassian (Diego Luna), who doubts that Galen is on their side. They're accompanied by pilot Bodhi (Riz Ahmed) and the sarcastic robot K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), plus the blind wannabe Jedi Chirrut (Donnie Yen) and his battling sidekick Baze (Jiang Wen). And as their mission goes rogue, they come up against the slimy Imperial Director Orson (Ben Mendelson) and the vicious Darth Vader (again voiced by James Earl Jones).

Director Gareth Edwards (Monster) packs the movie with visual references to A New Hope, cleverly matching the design work by avoiding fakey digital effects in lieu of more practical, battle-scared models and lively settings on a series of new planets and a familiar one. This gives the film an electric atmosphere that's edgy and unpredictable even though we all know exactly how this mission has to end. At the beginning, the plot feels a bit splintered, but the strands come together with power, building a gnawing sense of momentum and some real gravitas along the way.

But especially of her, as is shown in one of the new clips where he panics at the sight of her weapon.

Felicity Jones Speaks Out On Gender Pay Gap In Hollywood


Felicity Jones Star Wars

Hollywood star Felicity Jones has weighed into the debate around the gender inequality in the movie industry, saying that it should be an expectation that female stars get paid as much as their male counterparts.

Speaking to the January 2017 edition of Glamour magazine, the 33 year old English actress, who stars in the upcoming Star Wars spin-off movie Rogue One, said: “I want to be paid fairly for the work that I'm doing.”

“That's what every single woman around the world wants,” she continued. “We want to be paid on parity with a man in a similar position. And I think it's important to talk about it.”
