The actor's latest two films have earned her a Bafta nomination as a rising star. But she's determined not to let it go to her head

Andrea Riseborough is perched on her bags in the hallway of her hotel (no room key yet), rattling down the line about the honour of being nominated – for a Bafta rising star award – and how she fell in love with an American (for her sins) and moved to Idaho in the middle of nowhere, to a haven in the woods, which is beautiful. Kind of like a log cabin, where she likes to sit and see the elks and play the banjo.

Unashamedly, endearingly eccentric, she talks through questions, spinning off on tangents, excited to be home; she was raised in north Tyneside before decamping to Rada in London in 2005.

Riseborough's usual persona in interviews seems to be that of a luvvie who lives »
