FIFTY SHADES DARKER
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, BELLA HEATHCOTE (Leila
Williams) is emerging as one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents. In 2010,
after being honored with the Heath Ledger Scholarship Award for her performance
in the Australian war epic Beneath Hill 60, Heathcote moved to Los Angeles to
further pursue her acting career, where she has worked with an impressive roster
of award-winning directors. In 2012, Heathcote was named one of Variety's "10
Actors to Watch."
Heathcote recently completed production on the independent feature Professor
Marston & the Wonder Women. The biopic on the creator of Wonder Woman also stars
Luke Evans and Rebecca Hall.
In 2016, Heathcote joined the cast for season two of Amazon's original drama
series The Man in the High Castle. Based on Philip K. Dick's alt-history novel,
the series depicts a divided and drab 1962 America, in which the Nazis rule the
East and Midwest and Imperial Japan reigns over the Western states, with a
neutral zone between them. Heathcote plays Nicole Dormer, a young, Berlin-born
documentary filmmaker. Heathcote is returning for season three in 2017.
In 2016, Heathcote also starred with Lily James, Sam Riley, Lena Headey and Jack
Huston on the big-screen re-envisioned masterpiece Pride and Prejudice and
Zombies-Jane Austen's classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers
from different social classes in 19th century England now faced with a new
challenge-an army of zombies. Additionally, she starred alongside Elle Fanning,
Keanu Reeves, Christina Hendricks and Jena Malone in the Nicolas Winding Refn-directed
horror thriller, The Neon Demon, about an aspiring model in Los Angeles having
her youth and vitality devoured by a group of beauty-obsessed women who will use
any means necessary to get what she has.
Heathcote's past film credits include The Rewrite, alongside Hugh Grant and
Marisa Tomei; David Chase's feature film Not Fade Away, about a group of friends
that form a rock band in suburban New Jersey trying to make it big in the 1960s;
and Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, as the romantic lead opposite Johnny Depp. She
made her feature film debut in the 2008 film Acolytes and is also known for her
role on the Australian drama series Neighbours.
Heathcote currently resides in Los Angeles.
