Her startling portrayal of Christine Chubbock in Antonio Compos’ 'Christine' might have brought Rebecca Hall widespread acclaim following its Sundance premiere, but it is not the first performance to highlight her charisma and skill as an actor. She began her screen career with a role in her father Peter Hall’s TV adaptation of Mary Wesley’s 'The Camomille Lawn' (1992). Her stage debut came a decade later, in Shaw’s ‘Mrs Warren’s Profession’. It was her portrayal of left-wing student Rebecca Epstein in 'Starter for 10' (2006) that first revealed her command of the screen, balancing humour and drama as James McAvoy’s foil and love interest. A minor role in Christopher Nolan’s 'The Prestige' (2006) was followed by a subtle performance in Woody Allen’s 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona' (2008), which saw her nominated for a Golden Globe. She won a Best Supporting Actress BAFTA for her role in the TV film 'Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1974' (2009). Four years later, she was nominated for a Best Actress BAFTA for her ruthless Sylvia Tietjens in 'Parade’s End' (2012). Other notable film roles include a smart comic turn in 'Please Give' and a Boston woman caught up in a relationship with a habitual criminal in 'The Town' (both 2010), a woman haunted by ghosts in 'The Awakening' (2011), her first blockbuster role in 'Iron Man 3' (2013) and the soul of Joel Edgerton’s smart thriller 'The Gift' (2015).
