We chat to Actress Annabelle Wallis about her guilty pleasures and her biggest fears.
English Actress Annabelle Wallis is somewhat of a chameleon when it comes to the roles in which she opts to play.
Her part in historic drama The Tudors, in which she portrayed one of Henry VIII’s wives, Jane Seymour, led to roles in big budget Hollywood pictures W.E and X Men: First Class. This year has seen her take on the role of double-agent Graces Burgess in new BBC drama Peaky Blinders, alongside Cillian Murphy and Sam Neil.
Biggest food guilty pleasure?
Offal. I love odd foods. I eat like only a pregnant woman with mad cravings should.
Eccentric fear or dislike?
Bad teeth and bad breath!
You can go back in time once, to either invent something or stop something from being invented, what would you choose?
The perm would have been halted! There is a whole generation of women from the 80’s traumatised by the perm and it’s been passed on to their children. I call it “perm shame”. A travesty.
Best-worst T.V show you’ve ever watched?
Best is Breaking Bad. Aaron Paul is my buddy…so it makes it even better. I’ve watched a lot of bad Latin soap operas growing up…although I secretly wish to be in one.
What do you think would drive society into a greater state of desolation: a systematic power outage or if all the gasoline in the country disappeared over night?
Well you need power to extract the gasoline. So power. Could you imagine if our generation of narcissists were unable to take a selfie!? There would be pandemonium!!
Would you rather have to wear roller skates for a month or boxing gloves for a week?
Roller skates! It would be my one and only excuse to wear a full fluoro-spandex onesie and pirouette through the streets of London.
What would impress you more/less: If a date took you on a dinner date to a chicken shop or to a free sample stand in a grocery store.
Let me be honest…I’m a cheap date. I’m usually just happy to be on one. If the company is good then greasy chicken and chips tastes like lobster and champagne.
Worst tourist site/activity you’ve ever experienced as a child or adult.
Being stalked by lions on a riding safari, then chased by a bull elephant on horseback. Actually that was pretty awesome come to think if it. Climbing Machu Picchu without being proerply adapted to the altitude was also crazy. It’s like being suffocated whilst trying to sprint up a mountain in 35 degree heat and 80% humidity.
If you could eliminate one sport off the face of the earth, which sport would it be and why ?
None! We need to be doing more sport. I am all for a bit of sweat. It’s sexy.
