Personal life

After Kings Norton Girls School, Jones attended King Edward VI Handsworth School, to complete A Levels and went on to take a gap year (during which she appeared in the BBC series Servants). She then read English at Wadham College, Oxford, graduating with a 2:1 in 2006. Whilst studying English, she appeared in student plays, including Attis in which she played the title role,[1] and in 2005 Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors for the OUDS summer tour to Japan, starring alongside Harry Lloyd.

Career

After the first season of The Worst Witch, Jones was replaced by Katie Allen. When Weirdsister College began in 2001, Jones returned as Hallow. Her longest and probably best known role overall is on the BBC Radio 4 soap opera The Archers, where she plays Emma Carter.

She took the leading role in the 2007 ITV adaptation of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey and made her stage debut in Polly Stenham's That Face at the Royal Court Theatre in April 2007.

In 2008, she appeared in the films Brideshead Revisited (2008) and Flashbacks of a Fool (2008),[2] the Doctor Who episode "The Unicorn and the Wasp" and a revival of Enid Bagnold's The Chalk Garden at the Donmar Warehouse theatre in London between 5 June and 2 August 2008.[3]

In May 2009 she performed in a rehearsed reading of Anthony Minghella's Hang Up at the High Tide Festival.[4]

She appears in the forthcoming films Souled Out (2009)[5] and Julie Taymor's big screen adaptation of The Tempest. She will also play the role of Julie in Cemetery Junction (2010).[6]
