Actress Lucy Boynton entered filmdom during early adolescence, with two urbane roles that took full advantage of her English origins: that of a young Beatrix Potter (played as an adult by Renée Zellweger) in the Chris Noonan-directed biopic Miss Potter (2006), and that of a British adoptee with ballet dreams in the family-oriented drama Ballet Shoes (2008).
