I’ve always been really private about my personal life. I don’t talk about it.
I love ‘Breathless,’ and ‘Paris, Texas,’ and ‘Badlands.’ I was obsessed with those films in my teens. I remember watching ‘Badlands’ and being amazed that there were these scenes in which nobody said anything and the silence told the whole story.
I’m not oblivious to that connotation of changing careers, so I’m just going in and doing the job. I think that you can’t fake doing the job. All I want to do is deliver. That’s my focus.
I don’t think a name defines the core of who you are.
I dress like a tomboy.
I suppose I have stopped modeling officially. I’ve not done any for a good long while now. I think it was four years ago when my feelings were changing towards the industry. I didn’t hate it, but I was yearning to do something different. I was on a gradient. It was a gradual thing.
Modelling is only about the look. In acting, it’s the feel that matters.
I dont have that many friends.
I’ve never had formal drama-school training; I’ve just picked things up as I’ve gone along.
Being such a tomboy growing up, that was one thing that changed me as a person, as well. It broadened me, like me cracking myself open in a certain way.
I’m not the new anything; I’m just Agyness.
I know I’m no Whitney Houston.
