The daughter of one of England's most acclaimed theater and television directors, actress Rebecca Hall began making her first onscreen appearances in British television while still a child. She honed her craft for the next decade in a series of award-winning performances on the international stage, before turning to films with supporting roles as willowy, tragic types in "The Prestige" (2006), among other high-profile projects. Hall was then thrust further into the spotlight with a co-starring role as one of two American tourists who fall for a Spanish painter in Woody Allen's sexy comedy "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (2008). The attention she received allowed Hall a wider array of roles to choose from, though she often preferred to remain in her native England, as she did for her BAFTA-winning performance in "Red Riding: 1974" (Channel 4, 2009). After delivering acclaimed turns in the indie comedy "Please Give" (2010) and Ben Affleck's highly praised crime thriller "The Town" (2010), Hall undoubtedly established herself as a talented leading actress worthy of international attention, appearing in the blockbuster superhero sequel, "Iron Man 3" (2013).
