The 18-year-old British actress sat down to chat about her kiss with Daniel Radcliffe, her fans and being ambassador for the eco-friendly Made By fashion line. Check it:
On the kiss in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince she shares with Daniel: “The way it was done was very romantic. Daniel and I have always been good friends, which I think worked in our favour. Itâ€™s the only love scene Iâ€™ve filmed, but I imagine if you had to do one with some random person that you had no relationship with, it would feel very strange. My character initiates the kiss, which is great because it gives this power to girls and shows that itâ€™s OK to be the one who makes the approach.”
On fans finding her in the strangest places: “You can be on holiday abroad, in a tiny village in the middle of nowhere, and someone will recognize you, and you just think, ‘How far has this spread?’ Then, all of a sudden, it became a bit daunting. Iâ€™ll be out shopping, and all it takes is for one person to recognise me and it can get scary.”
On being the ambassador for Made-By: “I think many people think of ethical fashion as a bit kooky-looking, but the great thing about Made-By is that it shows that it can be really on-trend and use gorgeous materials. So many people are doing these quick-fix ethical ideas â€“ like one T-shirt made from organic cotton, but with Made-By you’ve got to commit to the process through and through, which is the only thing that’s going to break the cycle of cheap labor and unsustainable materials. In my family we’ve always been into ethical stuff and recycling. I think it’s very important for the awareness to begin at a young age, so that it sets in and becomes a habit. It’s been great to find something I can be a part of that joins my interests in fashion and sustainability, and I’m hoping that as a younger spokeswoman I can encourage my generation to embrace this idea.”
