To celebrate the eagerly-anticipated release of Last Night In Soho, the new film from Edgar Wright, we had the pleasure of sitting down with star Thomasin McKenzie to find out all about the trip back in time.
In the acclaimed director’s new psychological thriller – co-written with Oscar Nominee Krysty Wilson-Cairns (1917) – Eloise (McKenzie), an aspiring fashion designer, is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters a dazzling wannabe singer, Sandie (Anya Taylor-Joy), and her manager-come-lover Jack (Matt Smith). But the glamour is not all it appears to be and the dreams of the past start to crack and splinter into something far darker.
Chatting to us about the film, McKenzie tells about shooting all across Soho and the lure of the vibrant part of London; working with Edgar Wright; dancing and performing the challenging “duo” parts of the film where she and Anya Taylor-Joy crossover; and the pressures of pulling the perfect pint – something us Brits will scrutinise quite heavily – but says she was a natural.

Last Night in Soho opens in UK cinemas on October 29th.
