They act in a way that doesn’t represent life as we know it. But the beautiful thing about Abi is that she comes from the heart. She is smarter, infinitely smarter, than people think she is, and she has a very good work ethic.”
The Lady MacBeth actress says of her role, “It’s terrifying but also unbelievably exciting and I remember talking to the director John Hales in the summer about it and how daunted I was by it and how much respect I have for it – but at the end of the day it’s a play. You can’t spend too long being afraid of it, you have to get on and do it. I am an actress and I just feel very lucky that I am able to do it.”
