TAMSIN EGERTON

Age:
24

Hometown: Hampshire, England

Channeling: Charlize Theron. Egerton’s willowy frame and blonde locks pair with an on-screen persona that is both wide-eyed and knowing.

Known For: Egerton appeared in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s musical production of “The Secret Garden” as a child; in the American miniseries “The Mists of Avalon” as a teen, and in the cult favorite “St. Trinian’s” and its sequel.

Sundance Moment: In Michael Winterbottom’s “The Look of Love,” she plays Fiona Richmond, the mistress of Soho strip club owner-turned-tycoon Paul Raymond (played by Steve Coogan). “I dyed my hair red and put on a few pounds because women were curvier in the Sixties and Seventies,” said Egerton, a former model who stands nearly 5 feet, 11 inches.

Up Next: Roland Joffe’s futuristic love story “Singularity,” in which she stars opposite beau Josh Hartnett, and the thriller “Grand Piano” with Elijah Wood and John Cusack.
