The British actress set to light up Tinseltown: heads to Hollywood after wowing critics with performances in hit BBC thriller The Capture

Dailymail has released a small article, on Holly’s new career path.

Holliday Grainger is seizing her chance to conquer Hollywood after acclaimed performances as a detective in BBC surveillance thriller The Capture. The British actress, 34, will play a female superhero in science-fiction blockbuster Mickey 7. And industry sources say this is ‘just the beginning’ for Holliday after she caught the eye of Los Angeles producers. She is now being discussed in Hollywood as the ‘next big thing’. Filming of her first cinema leading role has begun at Warner Bros studios near Watford, with Holliday starring opposite British heart-throb Robert Pattinson, 36.

Mickey 7, which also features Australian actress Toni Collette, is based on a novel by Edward Ashton and tells the story of a superhero who joins a human mission to colonise an ice world. An insider on the film said: ‘Holliday is really enjoying herself. It’s something really different for her after The Capture. She has been seen by the nation playing a tough detective – but now she is off to space. She has been somewhat excitable on set and she is loving being part of a film that couldn’t have a more different genre for her.’ It is understood casting directors are delighted Manchester-born Holliday is a redhead (she’s more of a light brunette though), as they are in demand across Hollywood.

Holliday, who has toddler twins with her partner, The Crown actor Harry Treadaway, 38, is directed in Mickey 7 by South Korean Bong Joon-ho, whose black comedy thriller Parasite won a Best Picture Oscar in 2020. Just days ago in the finale of The Capture, more than six million viewers saw Holliday’s character DCI Rachel Carey expose the truth about the politician played by Paapa Essiedu.She studied English at Leeds University and appeared in TV dramas Where The Heart Is and Waterloo Road before finding fame playing Lady Constance Chatterley in a BBC remake of Lady Chatterley’s Lover in 2015.

Two years later she landed her role on the first series of The Capture. In 2020, it was reported that the thriller’s producers had agreed to put the second series on hold after she revealed she was pregnant with twins by her partner Harry. That series finally aired from the end of last month.

Review: The Capture Series two offers a slice of silly spy melodrama (4 out of 5*)

The first review is out on Standard.co.uk: Rejoice, The Capture fans. The glossy thriller is back, and has graduated from solving murder cases to tackling international spy conspiracies.

For season two, brainiac cop DCI Rachel Carey – played by Holliday Grainger with a stiff posture and a sort of permapout that never changes no matter the circumstances – is back.

And well might she pout. After joining the Correction, the shadowy government organisation that made her life hell in series one before offering her a job, all is not well. DI Carey has been reduced to the spy equivalent of an admin assistant, reduced to endlessly cornering her boss in the lift in the hope of a promotion.

We also added two new promotional pictures to the gallery:

Holliday Grainger joins A-listers on ‘Mickey 7’

Holliday Grainger has landed a leading role in the sci-fi film ‘Mickey7’. She started shooting the movie the week – which will be directed by Oscar-winning ‘Parasite’ filmmaker Bong Joon-Ho – in London. Holliday will be starring opposite Robert Pattinson for the third time, and also in the cast is Toni Colette, Mark Ruffalo, Steven Yeun and Naomi Ackie.

On The Sun newspaper: “This is arguably Holliday’s biggest role to date. It will see her mix with the A-list of acting and will really elevate her stardom. She’s had big film roles before but she was chuffed to be asked to work with Bong, who is one of the most sought-after people in the industry right now.”

The film is based on the novel of the same name by Edward Ashton and Bong will write, direct and produce for his production company Offscreen.

The story follows Mickey7 – a disposable employee on a human expedition sent to colonise the ice world Niflheim. Whenever there is a mission that is too dangerous – even suicidal – the crew turns to Mickey. After one iteration dies, a new body is regenerated with most of his memories intact. After six deaths, Mickey7 understands the terms of his deal and why it was the only colonial position unfilled when he took it.

Holliday claims: “I’m getting more selective, the more I do. As an actor, you want to do a variety of things, but first and foremost, it’s the script, the quality of the script and the part. If the script is great and it’s a part that I believe and I believe the world, that’s rarer than you think. It’s always a project that I want to be involved in, if it’s a world that I believe. As an actor, when you’re put into a world that you believe, you’re given the freedom to do what you want with the character.”
