“A lot of boys in my poker circle are mathematicians who play on probability. I don’t have that kind of brain, so I rely on instinct. But I recently found out that poker and cards in general go way back in my family gene pool.”
I danced from the age of three. I was always in amateur dramatics and I did a lot of public speaking. So when I told my family I was going to be an actress… well it was like when your camp best friend tells you he’s gay and you’re trying really hard to look surprised.
People have always come up to me and asked how tall I am. I’ve had it since I was 14. But now they ask if I’m in Game Of Thrones. That’s what I’ve always wanted my whole life, to be recognised as an actress and not just a really tall person.
"Iguess I had Trichotillomania, which is where you pull all your hair out and it’s just like a habit. So I just did that and I used to collect them on my bedside cabinet. I thought it was really cool. But I burned all the photos of me without eyelashes, ’cause it’s so awful.“
“I think I am very fortunate to be in a position where what I do is so creative that it inspires my own personal style, be it in the sofa I get for my house, or the bright pink mental shoes I want to put on my feet or even in the way I cut my hair.”
