Felicity Jones (born 19 January 1984) is an English actress from Birmingham. She is best known to television audiences for her role as the school bully Ethel Hallow in the first series of The Worst Witch (she was replaced by Katie Allen for series two and three) and its sequel Weirdsister College.
After Kings Norton Girls School, Jones attended King Edward VI Handsworth School, to complete A Levels and went on to take a gap year (during which she appeared in the BBC series Servants). She then read English at Wadham College, Oxford, graduating with a 2:1 in 2006. Whilst studying English, she appeared in student plays, including Attis in which she played the title role, and in 2005 Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors for the OUDS summer tour to Japan, starring alongside Harry Lloyd.
After the first season of The Worst Witch, Jones was replaced by Katie Allen. When Weirdsister College began in 2001, Jones returned as Hallow. Her longest and probably best known role overall is on the BBC Radio 4 soap opera The Archers, where she plays Emma Carter.
In 2008, she appeared in the films Brideshead Revisited (2008) and Flashbacks of a Fool (2008), the Doctor Who episode "The Unicorn and the Wasp" and a revival of Enid Bagnold's The Chalk Garden at the Donmar Warehouse theatre in London between 5 June and 2 August 2008.
