People call me a ‘model-actress,’ when I just never started with that… it’s not my story.

Working in water is so difficult. But I liked having something very physical to do – you realize you’re strong. It’s a really good feeling.

My mum used to work for the Chanel store in Paris, so for me, I’ve always been very familiar with the brand because of her. I remember when I was very, very, little, our flat had Chanel shoe boxes, makeup, and some jackets.

The subject I was best at in school was biology.
