It’s been in the works for quite some time, and finally Artemis Fowl has arrived, set for its release on Disney+ this Friday. To mark the occasion we spoke to young English actress Tamara Smart, who plays Juliet in this Sir Kenneth Branagh production. She discusses the audition process, how much fun she had on set with co-stars (which includes the likes of Colin Farrell and Dame Judi Dench) – and tells us about a little red carpet premiere her mum is putting on for her at home…

Watch the full interview below:


Disney’s Artemis Fowl, based on the beloved book by Eoin Colfer, is a fantastical, spellbinding adventure that follows the journey of 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, a descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, as he seeks to find his father who has mysteriously disappeared. With the help of his loyal protector Butler, Artemis sets out to find him, and in doing so uncovers an ancient, underground civilization—the amazingly advanced world of fairies. Deducing that his father’s disappearance is somehow connected to the secretive, reclusive fairy world, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.

Artemis Fowl launches on Disney+ on June 12th.
