Personal Quote:

I played Nina in 'The Seagull,' and I remember thinking it's incredible to see all the actresses in the past that've played her. It's quite strengthening. You feel a part of the family of actresses going through and giving something of themselves to the role. See more »

Trivia:

She has the same birthday (not the same year of birth) as her on-screen mother in Cinderella (2015), Hayley Atwell. See more »
