Styled by Julia Sarr-Jamois, the 20-year-old chatted with the mag about Skins and her character Effy and also opened up about working with Dakota Fanning in Now Is Good. Check it:
On Skins: “Skins was like our University experience. It was fun and crazy and dramatic and terrible but I wouldn’t swap it for anything. They wanted us to be real kids going through those things. Everyone was falling in love for the first time or having their heart broken or having family problems or leaving home. It was a way of understanding all the shit going on in our lives. We were like, ‘It’ll be OK in the end, ‘cos in the end of this episode, it’s fine!’ And Effy holds a special place in my heart. She’s coming back, we are doing a final episode next year.”
On working with Dakota: “Dakota is probably the most professional person I’ve ever worked with. She knows all her lines, she’s there on time every day and she’s fully prepared. I really respect that but I really need the social side as well. I think I’d go crazy if I was working constantly. But filming Now Is Good was a great experience. I got to wear some really cool outfits and run around Brighton, one of my favourite places in the world. All my family live on the South Coast so they got to come down and watch me film. My Nan is in the back of shot. We’re on the pier and she’s behind, hobbling along!”
Now is Good is out on September 19th in the UK.
