Quotes

Acting, for me, was therapeutic. It was a way of expressing yourself.

When I was a bit younger, I did this tiny role on The Musketeers, and I had to stay dead.

I had a really lovely upbringing. I did a lot of skateboarding down country lanes.

It’s so important to get your voice heard, get out there, support what you believe in and what you wanna fight for.

The idea of bringing equality not just to entertainment but to every walk of life – I think it’s very important.

My first reaction when I watched Les Miserables was, ‘Wow, my hair looks good!’ They put half a wig in, and I was always kinda worried it was gonna make my head look twice as big!

I love experimenting with make-up colours, using them in unique ways and doing wild things, because on a day-to-day basis, I sometimes feel mad – but in a good way.

Working with the brand has taught me to keep it classy but also shake things up. I love that about Chanel because I get to be pretty, but I also get to ride my skateboard in Chanel.

I don’t really have a go-to style. I can change from an Audrey Hepburn type of thing to ’70s stuff.

When I was younger, my dad taught me how to cook. He’s a genius in the kitchen. I went to Vietnam with my parents, and I went on a cooking course with him.

With stage, it’s very tough. You have to have a lot of stamina – you’re doing eight shows a week for 19 weeks. The same thing, every night. Twice a day some days. The only full day I actually had off was Sunday. And every night is different.

I’m taken by a story and a character. I’ll read a script, and if it touches me and moves me and makes waves, that’s why I’ll choose it.

I’m always reading. I’ve loved reading since I was young, and I’ve always loved sinking my teeth into a different world, especially one that you begin to create in your head.

There is really nothing like seeing a live stage performance.

I have so many different styles. My favourites are from Amo, Levi’s, and Frame.

I always have Chanel lip salve with me, a sheet mask for the plane, and extra moisturizer. I like to use iS Clinical Moisturizer, luxe eye mask, and drink water.

I always double cleanse and use a lot of the iS Clinical products, including the active serum, which I swear by. I finish with the Liz Earle Superskin Eye Cream.

I’m from just outside London, near Reading.

There should be no segregation. Everyone should be united, and everyone should be seen as equals.

I love breakfast. Well, I just like food. I’m properly into my food. It comes from my father. If we go anywhere, we like to look up the best restaurants.

I feel like the books that I’m reading at any given time will really help me with my work, because it’s just more characters, and you see new people while you’re reading.

I admire anyone who does stage all their life. It’s so tough, and it also made me really appreciate how lucky I am with film. You have to do your own makeup with stage, and you have to do so many un-glamorous things.

I think I should have been born a redhead. It goes with my personality – I’m fiery, and it’s kind of quirky, like me.

For creating the Texan accent, I would listen to Sissy Spacek and watch her in ‘Badlands.’ I downloaded the audio of that whole film and listened to that.

My mum is so chill and so down to earth and not fussy about anything.

My favourite vintage shop in New York is called Screaming Mimi’s, and whenever I go, I’ll spend three hours in there just trawling.

I like a protein shake after the gym; I think that’s important. I also eat lots of fruit and vegetables.

I would love to tackle an older role and have a little bit more depth, but I do get to have fun with the roles, and I’m quite happy playing young. I quite enjoy being the baby of the cast. It’s fun.

When I’m out, I like a glass of red wine. Just before bed, I’ll always have a chamomile tea.

I’m not afraid to be me and push my opinions. At school, it always felt like girls were pitted against each other – that’s so awful and sad and something that I never do. It’s about accepting everyone and their choices.

I don’t think I’ll ever stick to one specific look. I’m very instinctual about my choices. Some days, I want to look pretty and classic; others, I’d rather have a grungy street vibe.

I do have quite a baby face.
