This Friday, you will receive the Nymph for Best Newcomer at the Monte-Carlo Television Festival…

I am very honored! Since I was little, I have always dreamed of being an artist. Creating has always been something that means a lot to me, so to have opportunities like this, where my work is recognized, is very unexpected… but also very exciting!

What do you have planned this weekend?

This is my second time in Monaco (she met her boyfriend at the Formula 1 Grand Prix, in May 2022), and I can’t wait to feel the sun on my skin! (Laughs.) Every time I went there, the weather was very good. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to stay long, I have to leave on Saturday…

After being at the center of season 2, you are back in secondary in season 3 of “Bridgerton”, the second part of which comes out this Thursday…

This season is the best for me so far! I can’t wait for you to discover it in its entirety. I have to be careful not to spoil it for you, but I can assure you that we will see more of Kate and Anthony in this second part. What happens to them is just… breathtaking!

What do you think of Kate and Anthony’s love story?

I always thought that Kate and Anthony were elements that complemented each other, or that he was some kind of wild stallion and she was his tamer. (Laughs.) She managed to tame it, because she knows how to deal with animals, whether horses, dogs… she knows how to stay calm in, let’s say, chaotic situations. Women like them are so inspiring!

Do you have a particular woman who inspires you personally?

I have so many, starting with everyone around me. I really try to see the beauty in everyone, especially my female peers. I am thinking in particular of Uma Thurman. I have always been amazed by his characters, especially Kill Bill.

What is it like working with intimacy coordinators?

They choreograph and coordinate the sex scenes like stunts. Above all, they help us feel safe. With them, we know exactly what awaits us. When everything is calibrated, we can then think about the expression we want to convey to convey a message. For me, they are essential on a set.

What are your projects ?

I have two films coming out soon: “Picture This,” a romantic comedy for Prime Video, and “This Tempting Madness,” a drama based on a true story in the vein of “Black Swan” and “Memento.” I would say. I play a character who is recovering from violent trauma and who invites women to find their inner strength, to overcome adversity, even when things seem out of control. It’s incredibly thrilling, with lots of twists and turns.
