Olivia Cooke's filmography thus far has included leading roles in films like "Thoroughbreds," "Ready Player One," and "Sound of Metal." One notable role among Cooke's various performances, however, was as the star of a historical drama that takes place in 1800s England.
"Vanity Fair" is a mini-series adaptation of a novel by the same name, written in the 1840s by author William Makepeace Thackeray. The mini-series chronicles the efforts of orphan Becky Sharp (Cooke) to improve her lot in 19th-century British society.
According to its aggregated scores on Rotten Tomatoes, the mini-series was a hit among critics and audiences alike, netting an 89% and a 92% average, respectively. In The Atlantic, critic Sophie Gilbert praised "Cooke's radiantly grasping, delightfully devious Becky." All seven episodes are currently available through Amazon Prime.
