REBECCA HALL is one of the world’s most intriguing young talents.
Hall will soon be seen as Caroline Cushing in Ron Howard’s FROST/NIXON, based on Peter Morgan’s screenplay about the post-Watergate television interviews between British talk-show host David Frost and former president Richard Nixon. She is currently working on Nicole Holofcener’s untitled new dramatic comedy, starring alongside Catherine Keener and Amanda Peet.
Last year, Hall starred opposite Christian Bale, Michael Caine and Hugh Jackman in Christopher Nolan's THE PRESTIGE, a tale of two turn-of-the-century London magicians whose rivalry jeopardizes the lives of everyone around them. In Tom Vaughn’s STARTER FOR TEN, a coming-of-age comedy about university students struggling to find themselves while learning the differences between knowledge and wisdom, Hall starred opposite James McAvoy.
Hall received wide acclaim for her performance as Rosalind, Shakespeare's love conflicted heroine in Peter Hall's production of “As You Like It,” which began at The Theatre Royal Bath in 2003 and was followed by an international tour. It was revived in 2005 at the Rose Theatre in Kingston and subsequently ran at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Los Angeles' Ahmanson Theater and the Curran Theater in San Francisco. In summer 2004, she starred in three productions at the Theatre Royal, Bath: as the title role in Timberlake Wertenbaker's “Galileo's Daughter,” (d: Peter Hall), Elvira in Simon Nye's version of the Moliere comedy “Don Juan” (d: Thea Sharrock) and as Ann Whitfield in Shaw's epic “Man and Superman” (d: Peter Hall). In summer 2003, she starred as Barbara in D.H. Lawrence’s “Fight for Barbara” (d: Thea Sharrock) at the Theatre Royal, Bath. For her West End debut as Vivie, the tough minded daughter in “Mrs. Warren's Profession” (Strand Theatre, premiered October 2002), Hall garnered the Ian Charleson Award. In 2003, she was again nominated for the Ian Charleson Award for “As You Like It.”
