It would be easy to eye-roll at the prospect of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies – the film of the 2009 parody novel combining Jane Austen’s Pride And Prejudice with Seth Grahame-Smith’s zombie fiction input. But, it’s out in the UK on 7th February and it’s a BIG fricking deal, with the crème de la crème of British actors in the cast - from total Gs like Charles Dance to the coolest new want-to-be-friends-with group including Suki Waterhouse and Lily James.
As we saw at the London premiere of the film, the cast makes for quite serious #squadgoals (as any actresses who play the Bennet girls have done) but who actually are they?
Odds are, you know Suki (and if not where have you been?). Probably the most well-known of the gang, she's has been pretty famous now for a few years after her high profile relationship with Bradley Cooper (following a few relationships with band members) shot her to fame, as well as friendships with posh party people like Cara Delevingne.
Suki has done a lot of modeling, having been scouted at the age of 16, including multiple campaigns and walking in Burberry shows. But, until now acting has been less of her forte, having been in a few films including The Divergent Series: Insurgent, and Pride And Prejudice And Zombies is definitely her biggest yet.
Her and her sister, model Immy, are sassy, beautiful and seemingly comfortable with their new(ish)-found fame, regularly posting shots on their Instagrams (on which they have over 980k followers combined).
Our January 2015 coverstar Lily James’s career is getting pretty massive. Having had noteworthy roles since 2010, it skyrocketing with her role in Downton Abbey in and then the main part in Cinderella. She’s also been going out with her Pride And Prejudice And Zombies co-star Matt Smith (a.k.a Dr Who) since 2015.
We knew it was only a matter of time before Ellie Bamber was snapped up for a main film role. Though the beautiful baby-faced actress has had a few film and TV parts, this will be her biggest yet.
The beautiful Hermoine Corfield is another model slash actor (and not the other way around), having been scouted in 2009. She's since modelled for Tatler, as well as in William Morris and Penelope Chilvers campaigns. She's been in Mr. Holmes, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, and Fallen, which is out this year.
Millie Brady’s acting career is really kicking off - after Mr Selfridge in 2014, she's been in Legend, and Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur. She also got a pretty starry group, including co-stars Suki Waterhouse and Matt Smith, AND she reportedly dated Harry Styles back in 2013 when she was model.
Bella (Isabella) Heathcote has actually got a pretty diverse acting CV. Having started in Neighbours, back in Australia, she’s starred in Dark Shadows and Neon Demons (alongside Elle Fanning and Jena Malone), as well as in music videos and Miu Miu’s SS14 campaign.
