Who is Hayley Atwell?
Born as Hayley Elizabeth Atwell on the 5th April 1982 in London, England, she is a Golden-Globe Award-nominated actress, probably best known to the world as Peggy Carter in the “Captain America” films, and the lead role in the TV series “Agent Carter”. Aside from the screen, Hayley has also worked on stage and radio.
Early Life, Parents, Siblings, and Education
Hayley is the only child born to Grant, a part Native American originally from Kansas City, Missouri, and his wife, Alison, who is British. Hayley’s parents divorced when she was only two years old, and her father returned to the US to pursue his Native American roots, while Hayley and her mother remained in the UK. Despite the separation, Alison and Grant remained in touch, and Hayley would spend summers in the US, but as time passed, she developed a closer relationship with her mother. Hayley went to Sion-Manning Roman Catholic Girls’ School in London, and later she took A-levels at the London Oratory School. Hayley received an offer from Oxford University to read theology and philosophy, but her A-Level results weren’t good enough, so she took two years off from education, and chose to travel with her father, finding a place as a help for a casting director. She returned to school by enrolling at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, staying for three years before graduation.
