HEAVEN IS FOR REAL

KELLY REILLY (Sonja Burpo) is perhaps best known to American audiences for her co-starring role as Denzel Washington's love interest in Flight, directed by Robert Zemeckis. The film was nominated for Best Original Screenplay at the 2012 Academy Awards and Reilly won a Spotlight Award at the 2012 Hollywood Film Festival on behalf of her performance.

Reilly is currently in production on ABC's upcoming television drama series, "Black Box." She takes on the lead role of 'Catherine Black,' a famed neuroscientist who struggles with mental illness, one of the many secrets she keeps from her fiance and family. She stars opposite Vanessa Redgrave who plays her psychiatrist. The series will premiere in the coveted 10pm time slot on April 24, 2014.

Reilly also appears in the Film Nation indie movie Chinese Puzzle. The film, which also stars Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou and Cecile De France, is the third chapter of the Spanish Apartment trilogy directed by Cedric Klapisch after Russian Dolls and L'Auberge Espagnole. The film will be released by Cohen Media Group on May 16, 2014.

Also upcoming, Reilly appears alongside Brendan Gleeson and Chris O'Dowd in Calvary. In the film, directed by John Michael McDonagh (The Guard), Reilly plays the troubled daughter of a priest whose life is threatened during a confession. Calvary premiered to glowing reviews at the Sundance Film Festival this year. David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter declared Reilly "especially affecting in the most substantial of the secondary roles." The film was quickly acquired by Fox Searchlight and is scheduled to release in 2014.

In 2013, Reilly was seen in the David M. Rosenthal-directed A Single Shot alongside

Sam Rockwell and William H. Macy. The film opened in limited theatres on September 20, 2013.

In 2011, Reilly was reunited with director Guy Ritchie for Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, reprising the role she played in the 2009 hit Sherlock Holmes opposite Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. She was also seen in the World War II drama Edwin Boyd, which premiered at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival.

Among Reilly's other film credits, including a wide range of international releases, are Pride & Prejudice, Me and Orson Welles, Triage and Last Orders.

On the small screen, Reilly was seen revisiting her lead role of 'DC Anna Travis' in Silent Scream, the third series of Above Suspicion, ITV's hugely successful adaptation of Lynda La Plante's bestselling novels. She has also starred in an adaptation of Jake Arnott's He Kills Coppers opposite Rafe Spall, as well as in Stephen Poliakoff's Joe's Palace co-starring Rupert Penry-Jones and Michael Gambon for BBC/HBO.

Reilly has received both critical and international acclaim throughout her career. She has been nominated for 'Best Supporting Actress' at the British Independent Film awards on behalf of her role in Eden Lake opposite Michael Fassbender, she won the Empire Award for 'Best Newcomer' for her role in Mrs. Henderson Presents, and also won 'Best Newcomer Award' at the Cannes Film Festival for her role as 'Wendy' in The Russian Dolls.

On stage, Reilly became the youngest-ever Laurence Olivier Theatre Award nominee in the best actress category, for her performance in the Donmar Warehouse production of After Miss Julie. She was again nominated for another Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for her role as Desdemona in the acclaimed Donmar Production of Othello opposite Chiwetel Ejiofor.
