I was bullied so I had to change schools. But it was at my new school where I heard about auditions for Skins.
"Everyone usually wants to dress me in black."
"Smudging black kohl around my eyes in Skins was a seminal moment in my career. It transformed my character Effy from an innocent shoolgirl by day to the true Effy with a darker side at night. It changed how I saw myself in real life too. My eye make-up has taken me six years to perfect."
