Born in London, Hayley Atwell got her start with parts on a few BBC television shows. Her first big break came in the television miniseries The Line of Beauty in 2006. The following year, she got her first film role in How About You…. She followed this up with Woody Allen’s Cassandra’s Dream.
But Hayley’s big break came four years later, when she landed the role of British agent Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger. This role brought her international exposure and really kicked things into overdrive!
Next up for her is a starring role in The Sweeney, which hits US theaters on March 1st.
In The Sweeney, Jack Reagan (Ray Winstone) plays an old style cop whose unsubtle methods usually get results, to the annoyance of internal affairs officer Lewis (Steven Mackintosh), who would be even more annoyed if he knew that Reagan was having an affair with his young wife, policewoman Nancy (Hayley Atwell).
Sounds like a cool flick, I’ll definitely have to check it out when it comes out.. Until then, enjoy the pics!
