Hayley Atwell — Celeb Crush
This London-born starlet is a dual citizen of both sides of the pond, but we sure are glad she’s been spending so much time state-side.
Hayley’s parents are both motivational speakers which probably made for a really, really weird childhood full of enthusiasm and vague language. When they divorced, she began to split her time between London and Missouri, which was also probably really weird.
She began acting in a theatre group at the age of 11, and went on to get her degree in acting from Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She got her first roles on BBC TV, notably the popular 2006 show ‘The Line of Beauty.”
One of her first roles on the big screen came in the 2007 Woody Allen film ‘Cassandra’s Dream,’ but she was burned into the memory of every man on earth in 2011, as Peggy Carter in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger.’ In 2013, she will appear in the film ‘All is By My Side.’ Tell you what, we’d love to be by her side. Or front or back or whatever. Not picky.
