Your new movie Age of Kill - in a few words, what is it about, and what can you tell us about your character in it?

 

Age of Kill is a story about Sam Blake (Martin Kemp) who is a disgraced black ops sniper who is blackmailed to kill 6 targets in 6 hours in order to save his daughter who has been kidnapped. I play Detective Inspector Hannah Siddiq who is on the trail of all the killings to find the culprit and to try and prevent further mayhem occurring.

 

What did you draw upon to bring your character to life, and how much of yourself could you find in D.I. Hannah Siddiq?

 

This is the first time I have ever played a member of the police enforcement unit and it was an extremely thought-provoking and exciting experience. It was a challenge to be able to match the male authoritative figures around me and I needed to constantly gain & maintain their admiration and trust in my ability. My approach was to always stay calm and confident within the role in order to portray a convincing & respected character. I related to D.I. Siddiq’s passion and strength as a person where she believed she was capable of accomplishing this case at any cost or means. As an actress you always have to believe in yourself to survive in this difficult industry. There is a lot of rejection.

 

How did you get involved with the project in the first place?

 


I had auditioned and met with Jonathan Sothcott (producer) [Jonathan Sothcott interview - click here] for a previous project he was doing and they then contacted my agent to come and audition for Age of Kill at a later date. I originally auditioned for the role of Lexi but the director (Neil Jones [Neil Jones interview - click here]) thought I was better suited for D.I. Siddiq’s role. I am really delighted I ended up playing this part, as it was completely different to any roles I have performed before and it was refreshing to take on a new challenge!

 

Is the action genre a genre you feel at home at?

 

I think it was a breath or fresh air that Age of Kill is a British action film as there are not many to date within the UK. We tend to do the gangster genre very well so this was a unique experience & something very enthralling to be a part of. I would love to be part of more of this style of film in the future!

 

What can you tell us about your director Neil Jones [Neil Jones interview - click here], and what was your collaboration like?

 

Neil is lovely. He has a real hand on approach and takes his time as a director to tell you want he wants from you as an actor. He was particularly calm (it must be his Welsh background) on set, which translates well to everyone else around him and enables us as actors to give him a relaxed and solid performance. I would love to have the opportunity to work with him again in the future.

 

Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere!

 

It was honestly a really pleasurable and exhilarating vibe on set. Everyone got on well and we were very lucky as the weather was marvelous for all of our outdoor scenes! The sunshine always brings the best out in people! The cast and crew all integrated well together and it was an enjoyable project to have been part of.

 

Any future projects you'd like to share?

 

I have a TV series in pre production at the moment called Deep Cuts alongside Eva Pope & Steven Waddington, so watch out for that in 2016! I also have a small cameo role as Ian Ogilvy’s daughter in We Still Steal The Old Way also produced by Richwater Films so it’s an exciting time!

 

What got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal training on the subject?

 

It was all I ever wanted to do ever since I can remember. I attended drama school in London at ALRA and also trained briefly in New York and Los Angeles. My mother used to called me ‘Audrey Hepburn’ when I was 5 years old walking around in her high heels pretending to be a movie star!

 

What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Age of Kill?

 

I have been fortunate to have worked on some amazing projects… to name a few I am most recognizable for my leading role as Michelle in Ben Drew's Ill Manors alongside Riz Ahmed and Ed Skrein. My role led to great acclaim with a nationwide cinematic release across the UK in 2012. Most recently I filmed an exciting role in the new Sky medical drama Critical, which was aired on Sky One in March 2015.

 

How would you describe yourself as an actress?

 

Passionate. I love to watch films and TV series from all eras & genres and I thrive on new challenges as an actress. I tend to go for roles I can feel a connection towards and I use that emotional connectivity as a core to build on within a character I portray.

 

Actresses (and indeed actors) who inspire you?

 

There are so many for so many different reasons! I admire Kate Winslet as an actress as she is so flawless and truthful in all of her performances. Each project she does shows such diversity. I adored her in Revolutionary Road and The Reader. I was fortunate to see Benedict Cumberbatch perform at the National Theatre in Frankenstein and I was blown away by his sheer truthfulness and force within his role. The determination and poise in his choices were breathtaking and truly inspiring.

 

Your favourite movies?

 

Girl Interrupted - I thought Angelina Jolie’s performance in this was flawless. Eddie Redmayne in The Theory of Everything conveys so much talent and enables us to see the possibilities for actors are endless if you push yourself and believe in your own abilities… there are so many to discuss… The Shawshank Redemption,Schindler's List, Life is Beautiful, … I could go on and on.
