Appealing young English actress Eleanor Tomlinson enjoyed several flirtations with major international stardom during her brief career, thanks to a starring role in "Jack the Giant Slayer" (2013) and a supporting turn in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" (2010). However, she appeared to fare best in television dramas like "The White Queen" (BBC One, 2013- ). Tomlinson began appearing on screen in her early teens, most notably in "The Illusionist" (2006). Her c.v. soon grew exponentially with "Alice" and numerous television roles, culminating with the special effects extravaganza of "Jack the Giant Slayer." Although the film failed to live up to its hype, Tomlinson rebounded with a dramatic turn in "The White Queen," as well as a choice role in "Death Comes to Pemberley" (BBC One, 2013), a new drama inspired by Pride and Prejudice. Though still quite young, Tomlinson displayed a versatility and resilience that earmarked her as a star in the making.
