Felicity Jones Finds “Infinity” With ‘The Theory of Everything’


Opening in select cities November 7, The Theory of Everything centers on the inspiring and steadfast relationship between astrophysicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) and his wife Jane (Felicity Jones). The film, directed by Man on Wire filmmaker James Marsh, is based on Jane Hawking’s memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life With Stephen.

“This is a fascinating and formidable woman to be playing,” said Jones. “It was a project where I knew that I would need to do a lot of research and a lot of preparation. When you’re playing real people, you feel a sense of responsibility, because you know that they’re going to see it at some people. It can sound a bit grandiose, but you want to do justice to their experiences – and Jane and Steven, they really lived extraordinary lives in an extraordinary way.”

In the audio clip below, Felicity Jones talks about the prep work involved in tackling such real life women as Jane Hawking in The Theory of Everything and Nelly Ternan in The Invisible Woman.
