Beckinsale made her feature film debut in Kenneth Branagh's critically acclaimed adaptation of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. She subsequently appeared in several British feature films, including Lewis Gilbert's Haunted (opposite Aidan Quinn), Jim McBride's Uncovered, Manuel Fleche's Marie Louise and Gabriel Axel's The Prince of Jutland.

More recently, Becksinsale starred in Stefan Schwartz's contemporary British comedy Shooting Fish and Whit Stillman's ensemble drama The Last Days of Disco.

Her television credits include playing the title role in A&E's critically hailed adaptation of Jane Austen's "Emma," as well as the television films "One Against the Wind" (which was nominated for an Emmy Award), "Anna Lee" and "Rachel's Dreams." Beckinsale made her television debut in the murder-mystery "Devices and Desires."

On the stage she has appeared in "Clocks and Whistles," "Sweetheart," "Faithless" and in the British national touring company of "The Seagull."
