The Surrey England-born actress has been steadily growing in her roles over the years. Key acting gigs for Henwick includes “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Game Of Thrones” as one of the Sand Snake sisters, Nymeria Sands, and “Underwater” to name a few.

Kenwick will also star in a key role in the upcoming “Matrix 4” movie with its original lead stars Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss.

“The Knives Out” franchise drew a record deal with Netflix when the former netted a 400 million-dollar deal with the streaming giant for the next two installments for the whodunnit series, which follows the cases of detective Benoit Blanc, played by Daniel Craig.

Meanwhile Kenwick’s star continues to grow with her involvement on another on-going production, this time acting with Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans on “The Gray Man.”
