Where You've Seen Her: This British babe got her start performing in theater companies as a teenager. After studying at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art she got her first big break in 2008 when she scored the much sought after Bond girl role, as Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace. That led to leading roles alongside Liam Neeson (Clash of the Titans), Jake Gyllenhaal (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time), and Phillip Seymour Hoffman (Pirate Radio). Now, you can see her starring as the ass-kicking bounty hunter Gretel in the new big-screen take on the classic fairy tale Hansel & Gretel, out this Friday. It's a lot edgier - and sexier - than Hans Christian Andersen ever imagined.
