English actress Christina Cole showed so much promise in her field, she hadn't even finished her degree from the Oxford School of Drama by the time she'd earned her first major role, playing Clarissa Payne alongside Amanda Bynes and Colin Firth in the romantic comedy "What a Girl Wants" (In fact, she was able to secure an early graduation just to film her part). From that point forward, Cole proceeded to bounce around from TV series to films to mini-series, working mostly in her native Britain. One of her first major roles came in 2004--she played "Cassie" Hughes for eight total episodes of the horror-drama series "Hex." Her next film role didn't exactly earn the actress a great deal of screen time, but she did nab an extremely minor part as "Ocean Club Receptionist" in the acclaimed James Bond sequel "Casino Royale," starring the super-suave Daniel Craig. In the late decade, Cole's raised profile helped her land more substantial roles--she appeared in all four episodes of the mini-series "Lost in Austen," popped up opposite Frances McDormand and Amy Adams in the well-received romantic comedy "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day," and landed a co-starring gig on the American-produced CIA adventure-drama "CHAOS."
