Rebecca Louisa Ferguson Sundström (born 19 October 1983) is a Swedish actress. She is best known for her lead role as Elizabeth Woodville in The White Queen, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination.
Ferguson grew up in the Vasastaden district in central Stockholm. Her mother, Rosemary, is English, and moved to Sweden from England at the age of 25. As a student, Rebecca attended the Adolf Fredrik's Music School in Stockholm.
After her soap opera success, and birth of her son, she moved with her boyfriend to Simrishamn, on the Swedish south coast. There she has run an Argentine dance studio, and also worked on several short film art projects.
Swedish director Richard Hobert spotted her at the Simrishamn town market in 2011, which led to her starring in his film A One – Way to Antibes. She has also appeared in the horror film Strandvaskaren and the upcoming film Vi alongside Gustaf Skarsgård.
In August 2012, it was announced Ferguson had been cast to play Elizabeth Woodville in the ten-part BBC historical drama The White Queen, based on Philippa Gregory's The Cousins' War novels about the women of the Wars of the Roses.
