“Time will not slow down when something unpleasant lies ahead.”
There sits the only king I mean to bow my knee to, m’lords, The King in the North!
When I was in my teens, I thought, ‘Would I like to try and work hard at being an actor, or do I want to work hard at doing something musical?’ Acting won out, but I do really enjoy those moments where I get to just belt something out.”
Maisie: [At the auditions] I had gotten along really really well with Sophie, and I just remember her being super tall. After everything we do, she’s like “Aw you’re really cute.” And I’m like “Yeah, I’m only one year younger than you.” I came out of the audition and said to my mum, “Even if I don’t get the part, I really want that girl to. She’s really cool.” But, um, yeah, we got on really really well.
Sophie: Aw, you’re really cute.
Maisie: Still, only one year younger than you.
Being that you’re so well-traveled, what are your preferences in terms of the men of the world?
Oh, French. The whole fluidity-of-sexuality thing is sexy. Men being able to admit, “Oh, that’s an attractive guy.” Also, they’re great dressers, and it’s not considered metrosexual. It’s considered just dressing. That’s a really cool thing, I think, when you find guys that take pride in what they look like. [x]
My first language isn’t English, so I pick things up from the people I’m around. I lived in London for some years, and I spoke slightly different then. But, I’ve also studied a lot. When I moved to London, I stayed with my sister and we had a rule. I didn’t allow her to speak Danish to me because I wanted to perfect English. And, I would repeat everything that I saw on the television.
