My first big role was when I was 17 and I got the part playing Maria in 'West Side Story' in my school production.
I did ballet and gymnastics, and then I started acting when I was eight – just doing amateur theater at a place called Oldham Theatre Workshop in my hometown.
When I was filming 'Ouija,' there were some elements in that that really creeped me out.
If I love the character, then that's all that matters to me. It doesn't really matter what genre it is.
'The Quiet Ones' was my first film, let alone my first horror film, and I had so much fun. I had such a laugh, every single day. I look like such a feral child in it.
I can't keep secrets about myself. I can keep secrets about other people, but if it's about myself, I'm like, 'blah blah blah blah.'
My dad's an ex-policeman, and my mum is a sales representative, and they haven't got the acting bug. Bless them.
