Nicky tells me that Felicity's new film Souled Out starts shooting next week in Stoke-on-Trent. The makers are looking extras! First of all here is the story:
1974. Power cuts, strikes and boot-boy aggro on the terraces. Flares,Chopper bikes and beer at fourteen pence a pint. JOE MCCAIN, 17 and restless, is bored with the flatline tedium of a life that seems like it´s going nowhere. Enter JANE, moving to the beat of a music that Joe´s never heard, a vision of loveliness who opens the door to a whole world of sound, movement and all-nighter dancing at The Wigan Casino - the home of Northern Soul! Swept along on this tide of pulsating dance and lust, Joe finally finds somewhere he belongs and the acceptance and true love he yearns for.
And here is the stuff about the extras:
SOULED OUT is an exciting independent feature film set during the Northern Soul scene of the seventies, shooting in Stoke-on-Trent this summer. We’re seeking volunteer extras for a number of big scenes, some of which include dancing. The film’s big club scenes take place between 18th August and 1st September, but we need extras and dancers for the whole shoot too. If you’re based in Staffordshire or the surrounding area, available in August and September and would like the chance to be in the film, fill out your details in the form below. We’ll be in touch!
Check out www.ipsofactofilms.com for more info.
Nicky also tells me that Felicity is in a Johnny Flynn video for Tickle Me Pink.

And here are some Fliss-flavoured photos...
11 June 2008
Thanks to Enrique who found some more Fliss articles.
Anyway, a generous nod of the head from the Whingers also goes to Felicity Jones who makes excellent work of what could be an intensely irritating Laurel. The role of the pert and absurdly bright 16-year-old (Jones is actually 24) is the kind that would normally have the Whingers reaching out to wring the character’s neck but no such feelings here. The actress already has her own appreciation page [this one!] so the Whingers can take no credit for discovering her. Although we probably will one day.
Prime examples, he [Andrew Davies] says, include Felicity Jones, who plays heroine Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey. "Absolutely perfect," he pronounces. "I couldn't have imagined anything better. I could have sworn she was about 16. In fact, I didn't meet her until I'd already seen her audition tape and seen some rushes. And I'd sort of fallen in love with her as the character. And I was almost disappointed to find out that in real life she was much more sophisticated and intelligent and grown-up and educated, because it was just such a delightful performance."
10 June 2008
On Sunday Felicity was in the Independent newspaper in relation to her part in The Chalk Garden. Here's the article. (If you have the actual paper please let me know if there was a photo or any other content.)
Close-Up: Felicity Jones
The young actor has her eyes on Hollywood but her feet in Ambridge
By Liz Hoggard Sunday, 8 June 2008
Felicity Jones's idol is Vivien Leigh: "She was so beautiful and had a look of wild abandon. I re-watched A Streetcar Named Desire and there's something so nutty about her that's great."
With her delicate, heart-shaped face and glossy dark hair, Jones, 24, is no slouch at doing pure and wild herself: in the £30m big-screen Brideshead Revisited she has just shot with Emma Thompson and Ben Whishaw, she plays Cordelia Flyte, who is, in Jones's words, "very sprightly and absolutely insane".
Jones, it should be said, is quite sane in person. Before an English degree at Oxford – "I'm glad I had that student time to be flippant about life" – she grew up in Birmingham, and started acting aged 11. (You might know her best as the voice of Emma Grundy in The Archers.) More recently she has shone in Andrew Davies' Northanger Abbey and as David Morrissey's daughter in Cape Wrath.
Brideshead ought to make Hollywood sit up and take notice, but like her co-star Whishaw, Jones is committed to theatre. She was in Polly Stenham's That Face at the Royal Court last year and now Donmar artistic director Michael Grandage has cast her in a revival of Enid Bagnold's dark comedy The Chalk Garden, as a wild 16-year-old whose life changes when a governess comes to the dysfunctional home she shares with her grandmother. "Laurel hasn't been given any boundaries; she's a bit of a zoo animal. It's nice to play someone on that cusp," says Jones. "There's something disastrously unhinged about her..."
'The Chalk Garden', Donmar Warehouse, London WC2 (0870 060 6624), to 2 August. 'Brideshead Revisited' will be released in the autumn
Fliss also gets a mention in another Chalk Garden article.
Felicity Jones, who plays my granddaughter Laurel, is going to be a big star, of course she is. She is an intelligent girl and enchanting. Wonderful, so good and so ripe!

Enrique found this photo of Felicity in The Chalk Garden.
The Chalk Garden By Enid Bagnold
Cast: Steph Bramwell, Linda Broughton, Suzanne Burden, Jamie Glover, Felicity Jones, Clifford Rose, Margaret Tyzack, Penelope Wilton
Director: Michael Grandage; Designer: Peter McKintosh Lighting Designer: Paule Constable; Composer & Sound Designer: Adam Cork
5 June – 2 August Press night: Wednesday 11 June
The child’s a flower. She grows in liberty.
Raised in a manor house beside the sea, where the flowers struggle to grow, sixteen-year-old Laurel (Felicity Jones) runs wild. As her eccentric grandmother tends to the garden, Laurel’s need for love forces her into a world of fantasy. But things begin to change with the sudden appointment of a governess who brings a mysterious new presence to an already dysfunctional household.
The Chalk Garden was first staged in London at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 1956 – John Gielgud directed Edith Evans and Peggy Ashcroft. The garden of the play was inspired by Bagnold’s own garden at North End House in Rottingdean.
28 May 2008

Yesterday I spotted that issue of Nylon in WH Smith's so I picked up a copy. Here's my scan of the Fliss content. It's less than a full page. Also thanks to Coryn for emailing in his sighting of the mag.
Also yesterday I bought the new Radio Times. Here's the Doctor Who article.
Finally www.dailymail.co.uk has a piece on the new Brideshead Revisited.

18 April 2008
Lots more Fliss goodies from Enrique. Firstly fliss appears in the center pages of today's Daily Mail newspaper in the UK. You can read the article at www.dailymail.co.uk and gaze at a photo of Fliss. The article has the following news:
Stephen Frears has just cast her alongside Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathy Bates and Rupert Friend in his film Cheri.
It also mentions her upcoming theater role in "drawing room comedy" The Chalk Garden running from June 5. (Tim also let me know about this via www.whatsonstage.com.)
Late last night on Channel 4 there was one of those "Edith Bowman At The Movie Premiere" things about Flashbacks of a Fool. (I think I spotted Fliss in a bumper car!) Those things usually get quite a few repeat showings so keep your eyes open.
16 April 2008
There's an interview with Fliss at wwww.indielondon.co.uk.
15 April 2008

No, not an April fool. I've just bought the new Radio Times and have scanned in a photo of Fliss in the new series of Doctor Who...
As you can see her episode is number seven, so that'll be six weeks from next Saturday.
27 March 2008
Enrique found a competition for tickets for the Flashbacks of a Fool world premier at www.empireonline.com.

Big thanks to Enrique.
29 February 2008
Simon let me know about a story on www.thestage.co.uk about a possible THAT FACE (Felicity's play from last year) transferral to the West End. It is not confirmed if Felicity will return.
22 February 2008
The April issue of Total Film magazine has a piece on Flashbacks of a Fool, including an upside-down photo of our Felicity. The movie opens on 18 April. Here's the photo:
8 February 2008
Big thanks to Enrique for both of these finds.
First of all Felicity appears in the current issue of the Radio Times magazine. She was at their "cover party". If you will recall she was on the cover of the Radio Times a year ago when the Jane Austen season was about to begin on ITV. And I was largely prompted by that cover to start this page.
Anyhow, here's Felicity looking totally adorable.
See also www.radiotimes.com.
Enrique also found these two photos that appear to be similar to the photo that appeared in Arena magazine this time last year.
12 January 2008
Thanks to Derek for sending me this link. PBS in America are broadcasting adaptations of all six Jane Austen books. Northanger Abbey is of course the 2007 version with our Felicity. They seem to be starting on 13 January. Check out www.pbs.org.
3 January 2008
Here's some quite big news for 2008. According to a couple of reports Felicity could be the new Doctor Who companion at some future point. See www.thisisnorthscotland.co.uk and www.digitalspy.co.uk. Both reports give the Daily Star newspaper as the source so you can take things with the usual tabloid pinch of salt.
Former Doctor Who star Peter Davison's daughter Georgia Moffett is reportedly in the running to play the Time Lord's new companion.
Moffet's casting for a key part in the upcoming fourth season was announced in December, but the Daily Star claims that she may become a regular in the Tardis for the fifth season in 2010
However, according to the report she will have to fend off a challenge from 23-year-old actress Felicity Jones for the coveted companion role. Jones, who will also feature in the next season of Doctor Who in an episode revolving around Agatha Christie, is best known for her parts in The Worst Witch and Cape Wrath, alongside her role as Emma Grundy in long-running radio soap The Archers.
"Several names are in the frame," a source told the tabloid, "but Georgia and Felicity are currently on top of the shortlist - both have their merits."
At least it confirms that Felicity is in the "episode revolving around Agatha Christie".
