On playing villain Molly Samuels, Hardin Scott’s (Hero Fiennes-Tiffin) ex in After: “I just loved the role, she was so me in so many ways, even though she was the villain in the movie, but she just had such a power and dominance to her character. There’s no hiding or fakeness to her at all, which is something that I love. I feel like people are always just putting on this facade but with her, what you see is what you get and that is really how I am in life!”

On the pressures of meeting fan expectations: ” “I feel like they [the fans] are so specific with every single detail of the book. I was definitely worried that if I played her wrong, everyone would hate me. Anna [Todd], the writer, did such a good job of giving us so much detail. Any time I had any questions, because there wasn’t really too much backstory to my character.”

On the origins of her name, which she’ll delve into in a graphic novel she is working on: “Basically, my name is after a Sumerian Goddess, so it’s like this whole mythological backstory that I never knew existed and I kinda just turned it into a book! I’m so super excited about that. It’s a badass wonder-woman type of story.”
