She appeared in the Donmar Warehouse production of The Chalk Garden in 2008.
Jones has appeared in several films since 2006, including Northanger Abbey (2007), Brideshead Revisited (2008), Chéri (2009), The Tempest (2010), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), and True Story (2015).

Jones appeared as Jyn Erso in the adventure thriller Inferno, the fantasy drama A Monster Calls, and the space opera Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in 2016. Since then, she has played Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the biopic On the Basis of Sex (2018) and has appeared in the streaming films The Aeronauts (2019), The Midnight Sky, and The Last Letter from Your Lover (2021).
Felicity Rose Hadley Jones was born on October 17, 1983, in Birmingham. She has a single older brother. Her mother was an advertising executive, and her father was a journalist. She was raised in Bournville. Jones's uncle, Michael Hadley, is also an actor, which sparked her interest in acting as a child. Her great-great-grandmother was Italian and originally from Lucca. Jones attended King Edward VI Handsworth School after leaving Kings Norton Girls' School to complete A-levels and then took a gap year (during which she appeared in the BBC series Servants). She went on to study English at Oxford's Wadham College. She appeared in student plays such as Attis, in which she played the title role, and Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors for the Oxford University Dramatic Society's summer tour to Japan in 2005, in which she co-starred with Harry Lloyd.
Jones began acting at the age of 11 at the Central Junior Television after-school workshop, which was funded by Central Television. She debuted in the first season of The Worst Witch when she was 14 years old. Jones returned as Hallow when Weirdsister College began in 2001. Her longest-running role at the time was Emma Carter on the BBC Radio 4 soap opera The Archers, which she played until 2009 (currently played by Emerald O'Hanrahan).
She played Grace May in the BBC drama Servants in 2003. She starred in the ITV adaptation of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey in 2007, and she appeared in Polly Stenham's That Face at the Royal Court Theatre in April 2007.
She appeared in the films Brideshead Revisited and Flashbacks of a Fool in 2008, as well as the Doctor Who episode "The Unicorn and the Wasp" and a revival of Enid Bagnold's The Chalk Garden at London's Donmar Warehouse. The five-part BBC One television series The Diary of Anne Frank, in which Jones played Margot Frank alongside Tamsin Greig (as Edith Frank-Holländer) and Iain Glen (as Otto Frank), premiered in January 2009. Later that year, in May, she appeared at the High Tide Festival in a rehearsed reading of Anthony Minghella's Hang Up. Jones starred as Julie in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's 2010 comedy Cemetery Junction. She also portrayed Miranda in Julie Taymor's big screen adaptation of The Tempest.
Jones received a Special Jury Prize (Dramatic) at the Sundance Film Festival on January 29, 2011 for her performance as Anna in Drake Doremus's Like Crazy. Jones did her own hair and make-up for the film, and she improvised her dialogue. Her performance was compared to Carey Mulligan's Oscar-nominated performance in An Education. At the 2011 Hollywood Film Awards, she also received the Best New Hollywood Award for this film.
She co-starred with Ed Westwick from Gossip Girl in Chalet Girl, a romantic comedy released in March 2011, for which she had to undergo two months of snowboarding training and work undercover in a chalet in St Anton, scrubbing toilets and partying at the Krazy Kanguruh bar. Jones described the role as a "relief" after a string of costume roles, and she was eager to take on a comic role. Jones appeared in Luise Miller, a new translation of Schiller's Kabale und Liebe by Mike Poulton, at London's Donmar Warehouse in June and July 2011. Jones prepared for the role by living with a Catholic family and attending Mass. Jones was named the new face of Burberry in 2011. She was also named the new face of Dolce & Gabbana in November.
Jones portrayed Ellen Ternan in The Invisible Woman in 2013. Jones, who had never met Ternan before, learned about her life through research and admitted that she knew she was "in for a challenge" when she agreed to work on the film, citing director Ralph Fiennes' experience and how "methodically done" his performance was. She also appeared as a co-star in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which was released on May 2, 2014. Felicia Hardy, Harry Osborn's assistant, was played by her. Jones agreed because it was different from her previous work.
Jones starred as Jane Wilde Hawking in the 2014 film The Theory of Everything, a biopic about the life and love of Wilde Hawking and world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking, with Eddie Redmayne playing Hawking. Jones read the script in one sitting after receiving it from her agent, and she enjoyed that it was a "love story rather than a straightforward biopic." She auditioned for the film, and its director, James Marsh, immediately offered her the part, which surprised Jones, who was used to waiting several weeks for a confirmation. Jane Hawking assisted Jones in preparing for the role by meeting with her. The film has received widespread praise, owing largely to her and Redmayne's performances. When Jane Hawking saw Jones, she was so taken with the performance that she wondered if it was herself. She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress, a BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress, a Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Actress, and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for her role as Jane.
She was cast as Jyn Erso in the Star Wars stand-alone film Rogue One, directed by Gareth Edwards, in February 2015. Jones was recommended for the role by her agent, and she enjoyed the character's search for identity, drawing inspiration from Ronda Rousey's movements. The film opened to positive reviews in December 2016 and grossed more than $1 billion at the box office. Jones also appeared in Inferno in 2016, playing a doctor who assists Robert Langdon in his escape. She visited museums and galleries after accepting the role to better understand her character. Jones appreciated the chemistry between her and Tom Hanks' characters, as well as the film's overall variety.
Jones appeared in On the Basis of Sex, a biography of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg directed by Mimi Leder and co-starring Armie Hammer and Justin Theroux, in late 2018. She then appeared alongside Redmayne in the biographical adventure The Aeronauts (2019), alongside George Clooney in Netflix's science fiction film The Midnight Sky (2020), and in the romantic drama The Last Letter from Your Lover (2021), based on Jojo Moyes' 2012 novel of the same name.
Jones will next be seen in the thriller Borderland, alongside Aml Ameen, Mark Strong, and Sophia Brown. It was announced in May 2022 that she will star in Simon Amstell's comedy Maria, alongside Jonathan Bailey.
Jones met artist Ed Fornieles at Oxford's Ruskin School of Art in 2003, and they dated from 2003 to 2013.
Jones was in a relationship with director Charles Guard in 2015. They got engaged in May of 2017 and married in June of 2018. A representative for Jones confirmed the couple were expecting their first child in December 2019. Their son is due to be born in April 2020.
