Congratulations on being the recipient of this year’s Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award®. How do you feel?

Very honoured, and I must say, also a little surprised – but pleasantly so. When I started doing this 12 years ago, I never imagined winning an award like this. To be honest, I didn’t even know if I’d be able to make a living as an actress! I am aware of those who have received the award before me – and I feel very honoured to be in the company of Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Banks and Emily Blunt.

Why do you think you were chosen this year?
