Hayley Atwell has been acting since 2006. She is perhaps best known for her role as Agent Peggy Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but you should definitely check out some of her other work!
The first time I saw Ms. Atwell was in 2010, in the television adaptation of Ken Follett’s Pillars of the Earth. She played Aliena, an independent woman who was also Eddie Redmayne’s love interest.
Hayley has been in other historical dramas, most notably Masterpiece’s Ruby in the North and The Shadow in the North, alongside fellow Brits Billie Piper and Matt Smith.
Hayley can next be seen in the starring role of Agent Carter, which begins its second season January 19th on ABC with a 2-hour premiere at 9/8c.
