Hayley Elizabeth Atwell (born 5 April 1982) is an American-British actress. She is known for her work in stage productions such as A View from the Bridge, and in films such as the 2007 thriller Cassandra's Dream, the 2008 drama The Duchess, the 2010 historical drama miniseries The Pillars of the Earth, and for her portrayal of Peggy Carter in various films and television series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the ABC action-adventure series Agent Carter.
Atwell was born in London and raised in Ladbroke Grove, the only child of Allison (née Cain), a motivational speaker, and Grant Atwell, a massage therapist, photographer, and shaman. Her father is American (from Kansas City, Missouri), of part Native American descent, and her mother is British. Her grandmother was Irish. Atwell has dual citizenship of the UK and the US. Her parents separated when she was two years old.
Atwell's first feature film role was in Woody Allen's film Cassandra's Dream (2007), in which she took the part of stage actress Angela Stark. In 2008, she appeared in the film The Duchess as Bess Foster and the film Brideshead Revisited as Lady Julia Flyte, earning praise and nominations from the British Independent Film Awards and the London Film Critics' Circle Awards.
In January 2009, Atwell made her West End début in Lindsay Posner's revival of A View from the Bridge at the Duke of York's Theatre which earned her a Laurence Olivier Award nomination. Atwell appeared as "415" in AMC Television's November 2009 miniseries, The Prisoner, a remake of the 1967–68 series by the same name. In 2010, she starred as Freya Deverell in the successful Channel 4 adaptation of William Boyd's novel Any Human Heart.
Atwell played Agent Peggy Carter in the 2011 American superhero film Captain America: The First Avenger. MTV Networks' NextMovie.com named her one of the "Breakout Stars to Watch for in 2011". Atwell voiced Carter in the 2011 video game Captain America: Super Soldier. She reprised the role in the 2013 short film Agent Carter, the 2014 film Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and in the 2015 films Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. As Carter, she appeared in two episodes of the television show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and as the lead role in Marvel's Agent Carter, which aired from 2015 to 2016. Agent Carter was officially canceled by ABC on 12 May 2016. She provided Carter's voice in Lego Marvel's Avengers.
