WONDERLAND – Securing her first major role in Matthew Vaughn’s explosive Kingsman: The Secret Service, Sophie Cookson’s arrival saw her burst straight out of drama school and onto the screens of film fans worldwide; a rapid rise beyond her own comprehension, the part put her alongside the likes of acting heavyweights Colin Firth and Samuel L. Jackson and she’s soon to star in the film’s second rising – Kingsman: The Golden Circle lands this September.

Undeniably a male-heavy cast, before her next foray into the world of undercover espionage, she will star alongside Naomi Watts in new psychological thriller Gypsy, a Netflix project written, directed and starring a predominantly female task-force.

The series sees Cookson take on the role of Sidney, a mysterious character and the focus of obsession for Watts’s Jean Holloway, a psychotic therapist who develops dangerous and intimate relationships with the people in her patients lives. Ahead of the show’s release, we sat down with with Cookson to find out more.

Do you want to start by telling what attracted you to the Gypsy role?
I mean it’s very rare that a script like this comes your way, and I think when you’re not working you hope that there’s a script somewhere out there that can speak to you, that you can click with, that you instantly want to be part of. As soon as I picked up Gypsy it was that script. Sidney is the same age as me, and it’s the first time I’ve ever played anyone my own age, and she’s just going through that thing which I think is quite typical of a 26 year-old, that kind of quarter life crisis; when you’re changing and really becoming the person you’ll be.

And how did you prepare for the role?
Sidney’s main passion and drive in life is music. She’s completely obsessed, Stevie Nicks is her icon; she’s even named her dog Stevie. So for me it was really getting a kind of feel for the music she likes. You know very little about her, there’s no real background story, so for me it was working out the kind of person she is, her interests: Fleetwood Mac were on repeat along with The Velvet Underground, which is a pretty good research topic.

She sings in the first episode, was that actually you singing live?
That was us in a studio before. We did some live takes as well which were so scary, I mean, I’ve always sung, but singing in front of a crowd of people, in that kind of setting is very empowering but terrifying at the same time, especially in the short shorts that Sidney has to wear!

Have you ever had to do anything like that before?
I used to do musical theatre when I was younger, but I think that’s such a different thing. It felt much more exposing, especially if you’re coming in it like, “This is Sidney’s song that Sidney has written”, it becomes a very personal thing. But it’s incredibly liberating once you get into it.
