It looks like Downton Abbey actress Jessica Brown Findlay is the frontrunner for the lead female role in Marvels Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The news comes from Daily Express who says,
Jessica, 23, is the frontrunner to play the love interest in the next in the series of Marvel Comics films that have been international box office smashes.
She is available for the movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier...
It was previously reported that she is up against a few other actresses that includes Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Alison Brie (Community) and Imogen Poots (Fright Night). But, according to this report Findlay might just end up being the one that gets it.
We assume the lead female character in the film will be Sharon Carter, the niece of Margaret "Peggy" Carter who was played by Hayley Atwell in the first Captain America film. Sharon is one of the love interests for Steve Rogers in the comics.
I've never watched Downton Abbey, but I've heard it's a great show. Maybe one day I'll end up watching it, but today is not that day. What do you all think about Findlay possibly being cast in the role of Carter in the film?
