Her role in The Tempest won’t be Felicity Jones’ first experience with William Shakespeare. She once performed in the prolific playwright’s “Comedy of Errors” while studying at Oxford University, and she’s British. British people are all about Shakespeare.

A word from Felicity: “University was a good testing ground to see whether I still wanted to act. Now I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
