ROSARIO DAW­SON 25 things you don’t know about me

Yorker The na­tive New the scenes lets us be­hind life... of her won­der­ful

NW - - Wait! There's More! -

1 My daugh­ter [Lola, 15] and I are al­ler­gic to cats and dogs. I’ve com­pro­mised and we’re prob­a­bly get­ting a fish.

2 My first jobs were babysit­ting and tu­tor­ing.

3 I just don’t have enough time to watch a lot of tele­vi­sion. So, I stick with Sense8. 4 When I’m naked, it’s awe­some. But some­times it gets re­ally sweaty and I re­alise the ma­te­ri­als on couches are just not that con­ducive to a bare bot­tom. 5 I love to dance in the dark at night by my­self. 6 I love scuba div­ing learn­ing and about our oceans. 7 If I hadn’t been an ac­tress, I was think­ing about be­ing a ma­rine bi­ol­o­gist. 8 I have an up­side­down beauty mark of a heart on my side belly area. 9 I’m ob­sessed with The Shade Room [on In­sta­gram]. I went down the rab­bit hole!

10 My favourite song is any song my mum [Is­abel Ce­leste] has writ­ten. She wrote one for me. 11 My go-to karaoke song is Deee-lite’s Groove Is In The Heart.

12 13 To re­lax on a day off, I med­i­tate!

I was starstruck when I met Boy Ge­orge. We took pho­tos. This was pre-re­ally good cell phones. 14 My favourite book is The Four Agree­ments [by Don Miguel Ruiz]. That’s al­ways a good one to go back to.

15 I’m al­ler­gic to crus­taceans as of, like, seven years ago. I reg­u­larly re­mind my­self: “Re­mem­ber that paella you didn’t eat when you were ‘ve­gan’ in Spain at 25? Yeah, that was a dumb move.” 16

I’m still in a group text with Tra­cie Thoms and Zoe Bell who I did [2007’s] Death Proof and [2013’s] Raze with.

17 I love Whoopi Gold­berg. She is just amaz­ing. 18 My worst per­son­al­ity trait is not ask­ing for help. 19 I’m a su­per strong per­son, but I’m also re­ally sen­si­tive. 20 “The jour­ney is the des­ti­na­tion,” by Dan El­don is my favourite quote. He was a young pho­to­jour­nal­ist stoned to death in So­ma­lia [in 1993]. 21

My favourite cock­tail is a dirty mar­tini just ’cos I re­ally love olives.

22 I haven’t worked out for sev­eral years. I’m start­ing to feel it. [Lola] will chal­lenge me to do splits. Then I’ll get up and I’m like, “I’m not gonna do that again.” 23 In high school, I was a straight A-stu­dent, but I was also some­one who rolled out of bed last minute.

24 I need good make-up wipes be­cause I’ll rub my eye in the mid­dle of the night and wake up with a black eye! 25I’m

re­ally lov­ing the call-out cul­ture and I’m look­ing for­ward to see­ing more peo­ple use their plat­forms.
