    It's funny seeing you geeks swoon over her like this. I went to school with her, she was a couple of years older but she's a very nice girl. We were in the drama society and every time we spend time together, most people dont even know who she is but the projects she's been involved in and her success just amazes me.

    I see not everyone found success. I best go back to drooling at those photos in my usual socially inept manner.

    I'll be interested to see whether they have her play Sharon in the sequels (maybe with a blonde dye job).​

    Hayley Atwell Talks Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger
    November 15th, 2010

    Hayley Atwell is currently shooting the highly anticipated Marvel Comics adaptation Captain America: The First Avenger, in which she will play the iconic role of Peggy Carter opposite Chris Evans's World War II hero Steve Rogers. The actress recently caught up with Scotland's Sunday Herald, where she revealed more details about the woman she will be portraying on screen:

    "I likened her character to that famous Ginger Rogers quote. She can do everything Captain America can do, but backwards and in high heels. She's an English soldier through and through, although she always looks fabulous. She might stand there with a machine-gun shooting Nazis, but she's obviously gone to the loo beforehand and applied a bit of lipstick. She doesn't need to be rescued. That's exciting to me - her strength."


    About working with co-star Tommy Lee Jones, who plays Col. Chester Phillips in this upcoming adventure, she stated:

    "We do a lot of scenes together. He's lovely. He sat there in silence, then said [Atwell adopts Jones' gravelly voice]: 'D'you like opera?' I said no, so he sat there talking to me about opera for an hour, then writing lists of books I have to read and films I have to see."


    Hayley also revealed more about working with her other cast mates:

    "Chris Evans invited us all to the Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World premiere, and that ended up being a night of drinking and party games back at Chris's house. Stanley Tucci loves his food, so he's very proud of taking us to good restaurants and explaining the art of Italian cooking and fine wines, and through him we met Emily Blunt and her circle of friends, because everyone in this business knows each other. But I've also been having 5am starts every day, so I've been careful about when and how often I go out so it doesn't affect the work, because I'm not a morning person."


    About the fame headed her way after the film opens, Hayley said:

    "I'm ready for it. I've got six or seven months before Captain America: The First Avenger comes out, where I can lead a normal life and prepare myself. If any changes do happen, I can go with it and enjoy the ride. It's hard to prepare because you don't know what will happen. But I'm not scared of it. I'm open to whatever comes my way and hope I've got the tools to deal with it. I've certainly got enough people kicking me up the arse, my Glaswegian cousins for one. They say, 'You looked rubbish on TV last night,' or, 'What were you thinking?' They're brutal. But when they like something it's probably good. I don't think you can be successful in this job without having the attention or media interest that comes with a big production like Captain America: The First Avenger . I wouldn't have taken the job had I not wanted or accepted that was part of it."

    If she is supposed to play Sharon in future movies (Avengers perhaps???) then I really, really hope that they don't dye her hair blonde. She looks great with her brown hair, and... well, I'm not sure blonde would be fitting with her coloring.

    That said, Atwell just sealed her awesome with that interview. I can't wait to see her in action as a butt-kicking Peggy Carter.

    Shes beautiful and has a great figure.

    I'm not familiar with her acting but i'll have to check some of her work out. She seem like a solid casting choice. Hard to know since she's not done a whole lot up to now.

    She looks much better with minimal makeup on (as most women do imo).

    Had to laugh at Peggy sneaking a quick grope of Captain America during his weaker moments.

    Hayley looks fantastic in this. I'm so glad she got to keep her accent.

    I agree, she seems very well-suited to this part. :up:

    Um...she wanted an acting career, I wanted a career in business. Just because I studied drama doesn't mean I wanted to become an actor. So yes, keep waving that massive flag of ineptitude. You're doing an astounding job.

    Straight up, that was my favorite part! I snagged a .gif from Tumblr (I'm not taking credit for making it!) of that scene because WIN!

    [​IMG]

    And, of course, there's Peggy sorta-groping Steve after his transformation:

    [​IMG]

    Both came from Tumblr--I have no idea who made them. But they're awesome. I love Haley's take on Peggy; she seems brassy and tough and pretty fearless.

    Now I'm very curious about Natalie Dormer. Hmmm...

    Righto Shirley, even though I couldn't give a toss about your career choices. I would pass to you the flag and make you the 'banner carrier', but I think you're far too overqualified. Still, there's always hope! Good luck. :cwink:

    On a far more interesting front. Hayley Atwell looks great in the role and I've seen her in the very good "Any Human Heart". She was wonderful in that role and I can see why they picked her. She has that classical and demure look.

    Damn, this girl is fine. I'm shocked that the Amy Adams/Lois Lane thread has gone though like, 1,000 pages in a week and this one hasn't even made it to three. Maybe it's just because Peggy Carter isn't as popular or iconic of a character. I'm not all that familiar with Atwell's work, but she's lovely and I'm really looking forward to seeing her in the movie.
