Felicity Jones and her 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' co-stars brought the movie to London on Tuesday.

The actress - who stars as heroine Jyn Erso in the first stand-alone Star Wars film - wowed in a flowing grey dress as she attended a fan screening in the English capital with cast mates, including Donnie Yen, Ben Mendelsohn, Kathleen Kennedy, Forest Whitaker, Riz Ahmed, Felicity Jones, Diego Luna and Mads Mikkelsen.

Director Gareth Edwards also attended the special screening, which comes just days after the movie had its world premiere in Los Angeles.

And Felicity, 33, recently admitted that Rebel Alliance fighter Jyn was inspired by BeyoncE.

She told E! News: "I think she's someone who has incredible power and is devoted to what she does, but she also seems like a very nice person. I think that's very important to emulate.

"Particularly when I'm doing these scenes, I get really into it. When I'd get home, I wouldn't even realise. I think the adrenaline is pumping around your body so much. Then you get home and you're suddenly like, 'Wow, I've got quite a few bruises going on here'," she added.

And the brunette beauty thinks it is "wonderful" that young girls are able to look up to her character.

"She is someone who has great humanity; she has an independent spirit and lives by her beliefs, and I think there's something wonderful about her for a young girl to admire."
