Why She's On Our Radar: Already an award-winning stage and screen star in her native Britain best known for appearing opposite Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Holmes" re-imagining and its sequel, 35-year-old actress Kelly Reilly takes on her most high profile role to date stateside in Robert Zemeckis' first live action film in 10 years, "Flight." In the R-rated drama that closed the New York Film Festival and surprised many by becoming a box-office success story for Paramount since opening November 2, Reilly gives a revelatory and deeply committed performance as Nicole, a recovering heroin addict who develops a deep bond with a troubled pilot (Denzel Washington) after meeting in a hospital stairwell. What's Next: "[After 'Flight'] I took some time off, a couple of months, and then I did a cool little indie movie with Sam Rockwell called 'A Single Shot,'" Reilly told Indiewire. »
