Rebecca Ferguson’s BiographyRebecca Ferguson (full name Rebecca Louisa Ferguson Sundström) is a Swedish actress, who is often compared by the press to Ingrid Bergman. Ferguson was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for her role in the TV-series The White Queen, and the role of Ilsa in the blockbuster Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation made her world-famous.
Early YearsThe actress’s mother Rosemary Ferguson is British; as a young woman, Rosemary moved to Sweden, where she met her future husband and the future father of her four children, who was a Swede. Rebecca was born in Stockholm in the autumn of 1983. Unfortunately, the intercultural marriage didn’t last long; Rebecca was still a baby when her parents divorced.
Acting CareerAt a certain point, the young actress got tired of all the popularity which so suddenly invaded her life, so she decided to take a break from acting and tend to her personal life.
One day she was accidentally spotted in the market by the director Richard Hobert. Rebecca’s unusual looks had such an impression on this master director that, without a second thought, he offered her the leading role in his movie A One Way Trip to Antibes.
At the moment Rebecca is working on the set of the fantasy movie The Kid Who Would Be King, where she co-stars with the emerging actor Tom Taylor, famous for his roles in The Dark Tower and the series The Last Kingdom.
