Hailed as the next Kate Winslet, Florence Pugh burst onto the scene last year in the electrifying Sundance crowd-pleaser Lady Macbeth. Her astonishing work – which sees her descend from sympathetic to sociopathic over the course of 89 nail-biting minutes – has been lauded by critics, and resulted in a British Independent Film award and a Rising Star Bafta nomination. These accolades are rendered even more impressive when considering that Pugh was only 19 at the time. A cursory glance over her IMDb page reveals that the actress is well on her way to becoming a household name, and is tied to an incredible breadth of projects. Filmography highlights to look out for in 2018 include: the BBC’s King Lear with Anthony Hopkins; Stephen Merchant’s wrestling dramedy series Fighting with My Family; and Netflix’s Outlaw King co-starring Chris Pine and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. As if that wasn’t enough, Pugh is also a talented singer-songwriter, performing soulful covers on her YouTubechannel. Some people have all the luck.
