11 September 2013 12:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown Findlay has signed on to play the female lead in 20th Century Fox's Frankenstein reboot.

Daniel Radcliffe is starring as Igor with James McAvoy playing Dr. Victor Frankenstein in this revisionist version that tells Mary Shelley's classic story from Igor's perspective. Jessica Brown Findlay stars as a trapeze artist who becomes close to Igor after he saved her life. Here's what Daniel Radcliffe had to say about the story at the Toronto International Film Festival this week.

"It's about two young, brilliant guys pushing each other. Eventually one loses his morality and the other has to bring him back."

Paul McGuigan (Push, Lucky Number Slevin) is directing from a screenplay by Max Landis (Chronicle). Production is scheduled to begin sometime this fall in London.

Aside from playing Lady Sybil on Downton Abbey, Jessica Brown Findlay also starred in the 2011 U.K. drama Albatross, and »

Bitch Stole My Look: Felicity Jones vs. Miranda Kerr in Proenza Schouler

21 June 2013 10:06 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It's rarely a fair fight when a Victoria's Secret model is involved... Felicity Jones holds her own in this blue, patterned cocktail frock by design duo Proenza Schouler, but the Albatross actress is no match for Miranda Kerr. The shape of the budding Brit's version of the dress might be slightly to blame. Mrs. Orlando Bloom has on what appears to be a tighter, fit-and-flare take on the underwater-feel fashion. Felicity's style is straight, hence the failed attempt at a tighter waistline with that black skinny belt.  We feel like this one goes to Miranda, but what's your say? »

Jessica Brown Findlay: ‘Downton Abbey’ Star Regrets Going Topless

28 March 2013 5:12 AM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

She earned international acclaim for her role as Lady Sybil Branson in ‘Downton Abbey,’ but before that, Jessica was a burgeoning, naive star baring it all in her first lead role for the movie ‘Albatross.’ A decision, she admits, she wishes she never made.

Jessica Brown Findlay opened up in a new interview about going topless on camera, revealing that she regrets it and would never do it again.

Jessica Brown Findlay: Topless In ‘Albatross’: ‘Not Something I Would Do Again’

The former (spoiler alert?) Downton Abbey star had her first leading role in the 2011 film, Albatross. The role required her to appear promiscuous and go topless. Looking back on the role, Jessica admits that she may have been too young to make such an impactful decision, and that she might do things differently if she got another chance.

Jessica Brown Findlay has topless scene regret, calls it 'naivety,' not knowing 'no' was an option

27 March 2013 6:52 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Jessica Brown Findlay left "Downton Abbey" last year, after playing youngest Crawley daughter Lady Sybil for three seasons. She has moved on to U.K. Channel 4 series "Labyrinth," where she has been shedding her clothes on camera.

Findlay tells the Radio Times that she probably won't be doing any more nude scenes -- and that she regrets her first role, which had her going topless as well. Her first movie role was in the 2011 film "Albatross," where she played a girl who has an affair with an older man.

"To be honest, 'Albatross' was naivety and not knowing that I could say no," Findlay tells the Radio Times, about her nude scene. "I had no idea what was going to happen and thought I was going to be shot from behind."

Findlay is again shedding her clothes for "Labyrinth," but says that's probably it for her. And »

Albatross – The Review

14 January 2013 7:50 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Review by Lani Barelona

If Albatross (2011) was written and directed by one of the Andersons (Wes or P.T.) you would have heard about it.Albatross was about a boy or set in a fairy tale world, you would have heard about it.

Alas, it was written by a woman, about a young woman, and set on the Isle of Man (a place I’m going to bet not many Americans have heard of, as we are not known for our geography skills. It’s in the Irish Sea, close to the boarder of Scotland and England and is a part of the UK).

The film stars Jessica Brown Findlay of Downton Abbey fame in her first role, as Emelia Conan-Doyle. Yes, that Conan-Doyle, or so Emelia was led to believe by her deceased mother (“I come from a no parent home”,. she declares)

Seventeen year old Emelia is the »
