Hollywood’s Up-and-Coming Actress, Emilia Jones
British actress and ICM Partners’ client Emilia Jones has become one of the most talked about up-and-comers in Hollywood this past year. After starring in the hit Netflix original drama “Locke and Key,” the 19-year-old went on to secure one of the most coveted roles of the past festival season, starring as Ruby Rossi in Siân Heder’s multi-award-winning film “CODA.” Her notable appearances and dedication to her craft landed her a spot on Variety’s “10 Actors to Watch for 2021” list.
Up next, Emilia will star in “Cat Person,” based on Kristen Roupenian’s well-received short story published in The New Yorker in 2017. The story follows the brief relationship between Margot, a twenty-year-old sophomore college student, and Robert, an older man who is a regular at the movie theater where Margot works. Exploring the horrors of modern-day dating, the “Nuclear” actress will star as the young protagonist. When questioned in a recent interview with Vanity Fair if she feels tired jumping from project-to-project, Emilia responded that she never gets tired. “They say a change is like a little bit of a break,” she said. “All my life I’ve had to do audition after audition after audition—sometimes, for one project, eight auditions. But since ‘CODA’ and since Sundance, I think I’ve been very, very lucky.”
Congratulations to Emilia Jones for making Variety’s “10 Actors to Watch in 2021” list. We look forward to her blossoming career and all the work she has in store!
