Hi Britt! What can you tell us about the plot? in the first sea­son, you get a sense of who Sophia is – a young girl in her twen­ties who’s also a bit of a rebel. She’s not sure what she wants her life to be but she knows she doesn’t want to do the clas­sic 9-5 job. She’s su­per-pas­sion­ate about vin­tage clothes, but has no way of chan­nelling that en­ergy early on. through­out the first se­ries, you re­ally see how she takes own­er­ship and starts to pur­sue fash­ion in this unique way. it’s about be­ing the boss of your own life, which is es­sen­tially the Girl­boss motto. What at­tracted you to the role? i knew it was some­thing that would ex­cite me every day – that’s the dream. Sophia is an ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer on the show. Did she of­fer you any ad­vice? i spent a lot of time with Sophia. She in­vited me for lunch and shop­ping, which was so ex­cit­ing. What do you like most about Sophia’s char­ac­ter? She doesn’ t give a crap about what any­one thinks. i’m a peo­ple pleaser, which is the ex­act op­po­site, but i’m fas­ci­nated by peo­ple who couldn’t care less. Can you see any changes in your­self af­ter play­ing the role? One thing i learnt is that you should never be afraid to fail. i’ve al­ways had a hard time with that. You have to be OK with fall­ing on your face and know­ing that af­ter you fall on your face you need to get up and try again. Who’s your girl boss? Kay Can­non [writer and creator]. W he ni talk about he rig et tea rye ye d–she’ s ev­ery­thing that hu­man be­ings should be. She cares a lot, she loves hard, she re­spects peo­ple and she’s so tal­ented. Know­ing that you can do it all and still be gra­cious is more in­spir­ing than any­thing. Do you think the role in­flu­enced you style-wise? Def­i­nitely. When i was in my teens i got re­ally into vin­tage clothes, so the show has re-en­er­gised my love. the first timei hung out with Sophia, i thought it would be good to wear vin­tage. i got a Gucci sun­dress for $30. i was so proud of my­self. Girl­boss, Net­flix, from 21 April
