In her career and “A small light” – Actor’s side – Deadline

In her relatively young career, Bel Powley has achieved a lot. Starting with her breakout role in the 2015 film Diary of a Teenage Girl for which he won several awards, and continuing with important roles in films such as White Boy Rick, Royal Night Out, AND King of Staten Island opposite Pete Davidson, she also made her mark on television with the lead role of Birdy in 2022 Everything I know about love and as Claire Conway in The morning show. Now she has perhaps her most important role yet in the new Limited series A Little Light from National Geographic that will premiere on Monday and can be seen during this Emmy season not only on Disney + and Hulu, but also on Lifetime and more.

She plays Miep Gies, an ordinary woman thrust into extraordinary circumstances when she is urged by her boss, Otto Frank, to help keep him and his family from being discovered by the Nazis during World War II. She did this from 1942 to 1944, when unfortunately they were finally found and sent to concentration camps. All died except Otto and Gies went on to hold the key to what we now know as Anne Frank’s Diary as after the war she was the one who found it and kept it for Otto who would go on to live with him. and husband Jan for another seven years.

In this week’s edition of my Deadline video series, the actor’s side, Powley talks about this remarkable story and the opportunity to play Gies, whose story has been mostly under the radar until now, and it’s not just about the pulse-pounding efforts to keep this Jewish family hidden in Amsterdam, but also a coming-of-age story of this young woman at the time and her new marriage. Powley talks about its relevance today with the prevalence of anti-Semitism on the rise, and also the research, filming in front of Frank’s current home, and why this limited series can make a difference. We also talk about her blossoming career and much more. To watch our chat and hear the ‘actor’s side’ from Bel Powley, just click the link above.
