Rebecca Ferguson has been on fire in the last few years, and even better things are coming her way. Star of Mission: Impossible just joined another action franchise as she landed “a key role” in the Men in Black spin-off.
Ferguson rose to prominence in 2013, after earning a Golden Globe nomination for performance in mini-series The White Queen. She turned heads as the young queen Elizabeth Woodville, and it was just a matter of time before major Hollywood producers started calling. Ferguson joined Tom Cruise for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and reprised her role as Ilsa Faust in this year’s Fallout.
Swedish actress has been doing pretty great even outside of the Mission: Impossible series. Ferguson appeared alongside Meryl Streep in Florence Foster Jenkins, before starring in Life and The Greatest Showman. She was recently cast in Doctor Sleep, an adaptation of Stephen King’s novel that continues the story from The Shining.
Rebecca Ferguson won’t be the only familiar face in the new Men in Black spin-off. Marvel stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson will reunite on the set of this exciting action flick. List of supporting players includes acting legends Emma Thompson and Liam Neeson, who starred in the classic rom-com Love, Actually. It will be a blast to see them all together in one place on May 14 next year, when Men in Black 4 premieres in the US.
