Filmography Kelly Reilly

Kelly Reilly (born July 18, 1977) is an English actress. 
Reilly was born and raised in Chessington; her father was in the police and her mother was a part-time secretary at Kingston Hospital. She attended Tolworth Girls' School, where she became interested in drama. 
Inspired to seek acting work beyond school, she wrote to the producers of the television drama Prime Suspect and six months later was granted and won the audition, for a role in an episode Prime Suspect 4: Inner Circle, which aired on ITV on May 7, 1995. Six years later, she once again appeared alongside Helen Mirren in the film Last Orders.[3] 
Her first professional role was followed by a series of parts on the English stage. She worked with Terry Johnson in four productions, Elton John's Glasses (1997), The London Cuckolds (1998), The Graduate (2000) and Piano/Forte (2001).[citation needed] Johnson wrote Piano/Forte for her and said "Kelly is possibly the most natural, dyed-in-the-wool, deep-in-the-bone actress I've ever worked with."[2] Reilly has stated that she learned the most as an actor from Karel Reisz, who directed her in The Yalta Game in Dublin in 2001. She said, "He was my masterclass. There is no way I would have been able to do Miss Julie if I hadn't done that play."[1] 
By 2000, Reilly felt she was being typecast in comedy roles and she actively sought out a role as the young Amy in Last Orders, directed by Fred Schepisi.[3] This was followed by a role in the Royal Court's 2001 re-run of Sarah Kane's Blasted. The Times called her "theatrical Viagra" for her willingness to appear nude in such roles. She told a reviewer that after her mother saw her in Blasted she asked, "Why can't you just do something where you wear a nice dress and be nice?"[4] In 2002, she starred alongside Audrey Tautou and Romain Duris as Wendy, an English Erasmus student, in the French comedy L'Auberge espagnole ("The Spanish Apartment"). She resumed her role in the 2005 sequel, Les Poupées Russes ("The Russian Dolls"). Also in 2005, she had a series of roles in such films as Mrs. Henderson Presents and Pride & Prejudice. 
Her first lead role came in 2008 in the horror film Eden Lake and, in 2009, she had a high-profile role on prime time British television in the three-part police drama Above Suspicion. That year she was also in three major films, Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr., Triage starring Colin Farrell, and Me and Orson Welles, starring Claire Danes.
