Where Are They Now? Sally Hawkins

The last time we saw Sally Hawkins she was tearing down Bath's Royal Crescent as Anne Elliot to claim Captain Wentworth (Rupert Penry Jones) as her man. Although we didn't like the ending, we generally liked this ITV JA adaptation. So, what has Sally been up to these days? As you can see from this trailer of Happy Go Lucky, she's quite adorable in this quirky comedy about a teacher named Poppy, for which she won the Silver Bear award for Best Actress in the Berlin Film Festival this year.

Can you spot another Jane Austen adaptation alumni in this trailer? Yes, it's Sylvestra Le Touzel, Fanny Price in 1986's Mansfield Park and Mrs. Allen in ITV's 2007 adaptation of Northanger Abbey.

Here's Sally in a July interview, speaking about the film, and looking fabulous in her loose, modern hairdo (in contrast to her bad hair days in Persuasion):

Is there something that appeals to both genders that makes them both happy? (please don't say sex because I am sure people lie on this topic)
