Through the Lens: Felicity Jones

I recently saw the independent romance Like Crazy starring the charming British actress Felicity Jones and Anton Yelchin.  Jones was quite good in the movie, which follows the romance between two students in Los Angeles whose love is challenged when Jones' character overstays her student visa and cannot return to the United States -- thus, a very difficult long-distance romance ensues.  Jones and Yelchin spent a lot of time together rehearsing and improvised a lot of the script, which gave their relationship a level of realism.

Jones explained in an interview:
"It's all improvised and we had something called a scriptment which reads something like a short story."

"It had the characters and some of their backstory and described what happened in each scene, sometimes with some dialogue hints. From that template we found the dialogue and kept changing the scene until it felt truthful and worked... I love improvisation and I never realized you could make a film in this way." (Source)
Lester Garcia styled Jones for this Elle photoshoot in '60-style prints from Prada and Yves Saint Laurent and fun accessories, from the bug-eye Cutler & Gross sunglasses to the double flower cuff by Mary Katrantzou for Swarovski.
