“I feel like I’m where I want to be.“ I don’t feel frustrated anymore by the legacy of Twilight and the fact that I’ve been identified with my work in those films. I knew that it was going to take some time before people would be able to see me in a different way and that I would have to play a lot of different roles to shake up people’s expectations of me. It’s normal because of the massive success of those films. But in the long run I’ve tried to benefit from the attention I gained and find as many interesting roles as I can. I think people are beginning to see me differently now”


It’s taken me a really long time to find out what my voice is, or even if I had the right to say anything at all. Even at school, when my drama teacher told me, ‘I don’t think you should do the creative subjects’, that had a massive impact on me, and I had to go to an out-of-school drama club because I didn’t feel like I was worthy of the school play. A lot of people, when they’re really young, tend to be like, ‘I’ve got something to say and I want everyone to hear it!’ But I’ve never wanted anyone to hear what I’m saying, because it’s probably stupid.
