The Swedish-born actress Rebecca Ferguson shot to popularity at the tender age of 16 when she was cast as a lead in a daytime drama. After taking a break to teach dance, she returned to acting and quickly became a star. Recent years have seen a steady evolution in the variety of jobs she’s been cast in, as she has happily embraced her celebrity and proven versatility.
Ferguson’s career spans the genres and scales, from epic films like Dune to contemporary musicals that will have you dancing and singing in the aisles. Here is the list of her best works in the Hollywood industry.

PT Barnum has an idea for what will become known as the circus: a variety show with unusual performers. To bring the play to England, he found Philp Carlyle, who he recruited. In addition, the opera star Jenny Lind was brought in as a recruit. The circus’s commercial success grew over time, but expansion never came without sacrifice.
Jennifer Lind, portrayed by Rebecca Ferguson, is a central figure in The Greatest Showman. The character’s looks and noises are fantastic, yet the voice used in the film is not the original. The interesting thing about this film is its portrayal as a musical. Movies with musical numbers usually don’t have as much substance as other genres. Sorry I had to miss it.
