One of 2017’s most talked about performances is Sally Hawkins’ work in director Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water. The film centers on a mute woman (Hawkins) in 1960s America who becomes enamored with an amphibian man (Doug Jones) and there’s a ton of awards buzz centering on the actress’ work.

Even with an acclaimed acting career which includes work in Made in Dagenham and Happy-Go-Lucky, Hawkins was a bit surprised that she landed the lead role in The Shape of Water.  “I couldn’t quite believe that Guillermo del Toro wanted to work with me and I kept worrying right up until filming and throughout filming that (he) got the right person,” said Hawkins. “I wasn’t quite sure (if) I was going to get a tap on the shoulder and (he’d) go ‘No, you better go.’”
