Alex Drake/Keeley Hawes (A2A) Appreciation #1: Because Keeley Hawes plays all Alex's elements so well



Keeley Hawes (born 10 February 1976) is a British-English actress, known for many television roles, notably that of Zoe Reynolds in the BBC One drama series Spooks (2002-04).

Hawes first came into the public eye in the early 1990s, in 1990s Troublemakers and the 1992 BBC costume drama, The Moonstone. She has since appeared in many other television dramas, including Dennis Potter's Karaoke (BBC One/Channel 4, 1995), and Othello (ITV, 2001). She played the young Diana Dors in the ITV biopic Blonde Bombshell (1999) and Nicola Graham in the ITV drama After Thomas (2006). She is in her second series as DI Alex Drake in the BBC drama series Ashes to Ashes (2008-present), the sequel to Life on Mars, and is also currently the face of Boots No 7 cosmetics (2008).

Hawes is also known for voicing the video game character Lara Croft since the 2006 release of Tomb Raider: Legend. In 2008, she was nominated for a Spike Video Game Award for Best Performance By A Human Female.

Oh and she was in two episodes of The Vicar of Dibley.

The Vicar of Dibley is a British sitcom created by Richard Curtis and written for its lead actress, Dawn French, by Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer, with contributions from Kit Hesketh-Harvey. The Vicar of Dibley aired from 1994 to 2007. In 2004, it came third in Britain's Best Sitcom.

In May 2007, Richard Curtis received a BAFTA 'Academy Fellowship' award for his humanitarian pursuits as well as his creative work including The Vicar of Dibley.[1]

The Vicar of Dibley is set in a fictional small Oxfordshire village called Dibley, which is assigned a female vicar following the 1992 changes in the Church of England that permitted the ordination of women. The main character was an invention of Richard Curtis, but he and Dawn French extensively consulted Joy Carroll, one of the first female vicars[2], and garnered many character traits and much information.

I liked the perm on her, I really think she pulled it off.

I found Ashes to Ashes on tv last week, it was the freezer episode.
