‘She hoped I wouldn’t go to drama school’: Daisy Edgar-Jones reveals her mum didn’t want her to become an actress as she stuns for £40,000 from Gucci for Elle

Daisy Edgar-Jones looked amazing on the latest cover of Elle UK as she revealed her mum didn’t want her to become an actress.

The 24-year-old Normal People star swooped £40,000 from Gucci as she posed in several chic ensembles for the glamorous photo shoot.

The actress – who was born and raised in Muswell Hill, north London – told her parents she wanted to pursue an acting career when she was 15.

Daisy’s parents, Wendy and Philip, both worked in television (her mother was an editor; her father is now the head of Sky Arts).

When talking about being an only child, she told Elle UK: “We’re getting a big hit, but being an only child was great.” I’m very good at making friends.

“I remember going on vacation as a kid and seeing kids playing in the pool and having to come up and ask, ‘Can I play? It was a good life lesson.

When she was 15, her mother suggested Edgar-Jones audition for the National Youth Theater after she said she wanted to be an actress.

She added: “I think she kind of hoped I wouldn’t come in. Not in a mean way – just because it’s really hard work.”

She went on to talk about her current career and her resilience in the industry, “As an actor, you have to be resilient.

“If I have a bad day at work, that’s judged by a lot of people, and I have to live with that forever. But I still have to make brave choices to have a chance to do something remarkable.

Daisy gained worldwide acclaim, not to mention applause and gongs for her first starring role as Marianne in Sally Rooney’s Normal People TV series.

The romantic drama, which was released on TAUT Three in 2020, focused on the on-and-off relationship between Irish teenagers Marianne and Connell, from their school days to their time at university.

Speaking about her close bond with her cast mates, she said, “We really love each other. I think because of COVID, we liked each other all the more. They are golden human beings; I feel very lucky.

Daisy will next be seen on screen in another major adaptation of the novel – Olivia Newman’s film of Delia Owens’ book Where the Crawdads Sing.

She added: “This is my second time doing a big book adaptation. I really should stop doing this to myself.

“If I had told my younger self that Taylor Swift would do a song for something I’m into…crazy.”

She also stars in the small-screen horror Fresh opposite Stan Sebastian, which is currently streaming on Disney+. High-profile roles haven’t eased Daisy’s self-doubt, as she tells GQ:
