“We all went for roles as extras at my school because a lot of children’s shows were filmed in Leeds near where I grew up. My Parents are Aliens was a big one we all did.”

“And if I have kids one day, I can tell them that I was famous on Instagram, which is really funny, and they will think that I’m really lame. Everything is temporary.”

“I have stage fright really badly.”

“I have a fear of people… Some days you just don’t really want the attention of everybody looking at you. And it makes you feel insecure.”

“I’m 25, but I look like I’m 16 so I don’t really don’t consider age personally.”

“Creating boundaries for yourself is healthy. A lot of panic attacks, in my experience, can be stopped by actually saying to somebody, ‘Sorry I can’t actually do this because I feel uncomfortable.'”

“There’s a tendency to still show women as being one way or the other – you’re either soft and shy or you’re really ballsy and funny, but I think that we’re everything.”

“I was always a show-off with my friends; we used to have interpretive dance nights to Christina Milian and Sean Paul where we’d film it.”

“I know lots of friends who grew up without fathers and it actually makes you stronger. You have more to prove, you have to protect yourself.”

“I’ve played a lot of teenagers and I think sometimes they tend to make them a bit too mushy, because you’re not actually connected to yourself at all really when you’re a teenager.”

“Every single job is fun, but I like it to be a mix of knowing what you’re going to do every day, with learning something every day.”

“I’m one of those people when I see a homeless person on the street, I want to know their story. There’s a reason they got there.”

“I stayed at home and loved my own company because I was just petrified of everybody else my own age, which I think a lot of people are.”

“I’m a quite dramatic person.”

“I definitely wanted to be a woman and be treated as an adult, I wasn’t interested in being young at all.”

Jessica Barden is one of the most gorgeous British actresses in the acting industry. She always improves for the better. Keep up the good work!
