Sorry ladies, Tom Hardy is taken and her name is Charlotte Riley. The Brit actress met the actor on the set of the TV series "The Take" and the next thing you knew they were falling in love and cast together as Heathcliff and Catherine in "Wuthering Heights." And while Hardy has since seen his star shoot into the stratosphere, his fiancée hasn't quite had the same trajectory. But her next gig should see her profile take a considerable boost.

Variety reports that the actress has nabbed the co-starring role in the upcoming sci-fi flick, "All You Need Is Kill," alongside Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. Not bad...not bad at all. Set to be directed by Doug Liman, this long-brewing project is an adaptation of the Hiroshi Sakurazaka novel that follows a soldier in an alien war who finds himself living his last day in battle over and over again after being caught in a time loop, becoming a better soldier along the way. And she won't just be attractive wallpaper either, as she'll team with Blunt to play soldiers who fight alongside Cruise.

It's certainly a nice bump for Riley who at one time was considered for Catwoman in "The Dark Knight Rises." And while obviously that went to Anne Hathaway, this is a pretty good gig all its own and a nice way to make a footprint in Hollywood. Production will get underway this fall, but get a sneak peek of Riley's work below, as she shares a smoldering scene with Hardy in "Wuthering Heights."

    I don't like her. She has a lazy eye.

    Gorgeous girl! Hopefully she is talented too and soon we will know her for her name and not as the fiance of Hardy.

    I've only seen her in Wuthering Heights, but I thought Charlotte made a perfect Cathy. I can't wait to see her in more films.

    She's also co-starring in Entity (British Indie Horror) - not sure when it's due out but the trailer is here: http://www.entitythemovie.com/ - incredible work there.

    I know they first met eachother on the set of Wuthering Heights and Tom told in an interview he was very pleased that they could continue their 'friendship' on the set of The Take.
    And i agree with you; Charlotte is much more then just 'the fiancee of...' She's an excellent actress!

    I've only seen her in 'Easy Virtue' and 'Wuthering Heights', but she's exquisite! Two very talented ladies in this film! I hope it's good!

    To be honest, if Charlotte Riley was in the headline of the article I wouldn't have cared to read it since I don't know who she is other than Tom Hardy's fiancee. There has to be some hook in the title.

  • AS | August 22, 2012 8:56 PM

    My point in reading the article was to check out Tom Hardy's fiancee

  • b | August 22, 2012 7:25 PM

    I don't think you understood my question, but OK.

  • AS | August 22, 2012 7:00 PM

    Tom Hardy's fiancee

  • b | August 22, 2012 6:15 PM

    But if you don't know who she is, and All You Need is Kill doesn't interest you, what's the point in reading the article? What's the point of the hook?

    Charlotte and Tom met on set of Wuthering Heights and re-joined doing The Take together, not the other way 'round. Also I agree with Cate, Charlotte has a name and it's not "fianceé of XY" -.- Quality online journalism, yeah? Not so much.

    The Take Was Filmed Before Wuthering Heights

    Her name is Charlotte Riley, not "Tom Hardy's Fiancée". If you're going to write a piece about her casting, you might want to put her actual name in the title of the piece instead of leaving it only to the body of the article.
