Here is what the 24-year-old Aussie actress had to share with the mag:
On the type of roles she wants to play: “It’s so unsatisfying to play a nice, sweet girl. It’s so dreadfully boring, and almost painful. I like to play characters that have their own fire.”
On her time as a school student: “I never quite found my niche in school. I was terrified of the more common teenage experience. That’s part of the reason I loved escaping into ballet. The atmosphere wasn’t always so nice. It’s quite brutal. As beautiful as it looks, dancers are the most hardcore people I have ever met. They are so hardcore! Compared to ballet, being an actor seems cruise-y.”
On everyone thinking she is so mature: “I’ve been plagued by that, ‘Oh, she’s very mature’ thing, but I’m probably not quite as mature as all that, you know. I didn’t have a typical teenagehood so I have a lot of repressed rebellious teen left over. Every now and then I’ll act out in some unusual way.”
