ABOUT

I believe I'm unique because of my roots... I grew up on a small farm in Yorkshire, one day I could be looking after horses than the next day filming with the BBC!

Rosie, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as Actor?

I started at seven when my mum took me to a drama school. I talked much easier than other seven-year-olds and loved school productions.

Who is your inspiration in life Rosie? How do you stay inspired as an Actor?

My inspiration in life as an Actor is Angelina Jolie, she overcame so many things in her life that held her back and her performance in Girl, Interrupted is amazing. I stay inspired by watching new talent and films, and also by doing as much work as I can.

We all make mistakes Rosie; we wish we could take back. What was the mistake you made in the past that you wish you can take back?

I think the mistake I made in the past that I wish I could take back would be listening to other people's opinion on my work. I had a lot of negativity around my auditions for Game of Thrones due to some of the nature of it. Now I don't listen to people's opinions on what I do as it isn't relevant, I wish I could have taken it in my stride and realised that in this industry there will always be setbacks.

Rosie, How do you describe yourself in terms of working with clients?

I'd describe myself as a fun person to work with. I'm very talkative, smiley and like to do as much as I can while working.

Please tell us, Rosie, how do you prioritise work, social life, friends, and family?

It can be hard balancing everything, but my friends and family are always a top priority, along with social life. It's important to choose your friends wisely and be with them as much as you can. The family is an extraordinary thing and coming from quite a big and diverse family makes me very proud. My work is so important to me, however, and you learn to balance everything alongside your work.

Rosie, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

There was once a couple of worries that my wig for playing Shane in Brassed Off wouldn't look real enough as my hair is very thick and was super long at that point. So, instead of cutting my hair off or even switching roles I took myself to a natural hair salon and spent four hours having my hair braided into cornrows and keeping it that way for the two weeks the show played at the first theatre so that my wig would stay on.

Rosie, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as an Actor.

My proudest accomplishment was being cast in The Moment of Learning by the BBC. I'd worked for two years professionally, and this was my first debut.

Rosie, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

My mum helps backstage as a Prop Manager usually whenever I'm performing. We once worked together, and it was so fun, I got to create an outback fire for a comedy about äóìLadies Down Under' based in Australia. It was exciting seeing your creations on stage, but finding the right props can be difficult.

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as an Actor?

The advice I would give to people who want to be successful actors would be never to give up, your first role takes a lot of time to get, and it took me two years to get my debut on television. Also, don't let the opinions of your friends and family stop you.
