One of Britain's leading newspapers, The Observer, has run an interview with five of the young stars of Channel 4's forthcoming drama Any Human Heart - Freddie Fox, Lydia Wilson, Emerald Fennell, Charity Wakefield and Hugh Skinner.
There's more info about the production and Emerald on a previous post, here.
And the full article is here.
The delicious Emerald's Q&A's were: -
Born in London, the 23-year-old plays Lottie Edgefield, Logan's first wife.
Tell us about Lottie.
She's spoilt, glamorous and very, very posh – an earl's daughter. Logan is dazzled by her whole shtick, but their relationship is a bad idea from the get-go. It was fun to do; we scream at each other a lot and it gave us the opportunity to run the whole gamut of a relationship in a short time. I like flouncing about and pouting and being spoiled, so Lottie suited me to a T.
Where have we seen you before?
As Rachel, one of Howard Marks's girlfriends in Mr Nice. I lounged around in 60s clothes and smoked a lot. It was my first job and mostly improvised. The director gave us fake joints, sat us in a fake dorm, and said: "Away you go."
What 20th-century age would you like to live through?
The roaring 20s, because everyone was so mortal then and really lived. And of course, being a girl, I would have loved the clothes.
Which 20th-century figure would you like to meet?
WB Yeats. He was probably a lunatic, with all that automatic writing stuff, but I'd like to sit at his feet and listen to him recite. Marilyn Monroe would be great too. I could ask her for makeup tips.
What do you do when you're not working?
I'm writing a novel – to keep my mind working and make sure I don't lounge in bed eating chocolates until three in the afternoon. My dad [jeweller Theo Fennell] is very supportive.
What would you like to do next?
More theatre. Something new and exciting and filthy at the Royal Court, maybe.
