the insider: felicity jones
on her girls cameo, dance parties, and why we should see breathe in.
It seems like we've been hearing about Breathe In for a while. When did you shoot it, and what was the filming process like?
And you've worked with Drake Doremus before, so that must've been nice.
Very nice. Drake just creates a really comfortable environment to work in. He's really collaborative; he jokes a lot, and we're always laughing in between the scenes of tragedy. And there's just like a really easy, fun atmosphere on set.
What was it like filming a darker character, one that's not as likable as Anna [Jones's character in Like Crazy]?
Let's talk about your episode of Girls! Are you going to come back?
It was good fun, but it was only a one-time thing, I think. Lena [Dunham] and I both had a mutual appreciation of each other's work, and my agent called and said Lena would really like for you to come and play this part and I was like "I'd do anything for that woman!"
What do you do when you're not busy working?
I really like cooking. It's a big passion of mine. Obviously in-between reading scripts and working, I'm doing that. I really like going to the cinema, and I like reading. So much of your life is spent living out of a suitcase, so when I'm at home I'm like "I'm going to cook Sunday roast, I'm going to have my family over and just be rooted for a bit."
I do like Sunday roast, chicken roast, fish pies. Quite wholesome, hearty dishes. [Laughing]
My passions are much more film and books, but I do like dancing around my apartment. My friend made me this kind of mix-playlist and one of the songs is a remix of Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" which is amazing. It's basically Miley Cyrus' voice like really high-pitched, but it's really good to dance around to. It's a great track."
[Laughing] That was in New York; it was good fun and was a great thing to be a part of. But the thing is, I can't talk about it because I'm sworn to secrecy. I can only say that I have a small part in it, and it was great fun to do.
