How long have you been locked inside the house?
I’ve been stuck at home for almost two months now. Time seems to be gone so fast during lockdown.
What is your morning routine?
I usually wake up around 7:30, and the first thing I do is checking the latest news/updates on my phone. Shortly afterwards, a quick 30 min Pilates session to wake up my body, followed by breakfast at 09:00 AM.
Do you exercise regularly?
Yes. It’s very difficult when exercise is limited to a small-sized apartment in London! But I try my best to keep my exercise routines. All the energy that I’ve previously used running from casting to casting is now used to do my home workouts more intensively. haha
What do you miss the most during this hard time?
I miss walking around London and interacting with people. As soon as lockdown is over, I’m going to visit my favorite matcha ice cream shop and chill in the park, soaking up as much sun as possible. I really miss my eating dim-sum as well.
Which TV series have you binged and recommendations for books or films?
I have been getting really into Itaewon class, and the Mandelorian. Studio Ghibli movies for my favorite. They transport me to a different world every time I watch. The world needs to start appreciating Japanese animation more!
What is your favourite work you have done so far?
It’s difficult to choose my favourite, but the shoot I did with Mytheresa Johanna Ortozx brings up many happy memories. Being able to escape the harsh winters of Paris, and spending some time soaking up the sun in Colombia was really fun, plus I loved the design of the clothes!
Which item did you spend the most of money during this time?
Food, food… and more food. Even-though I couldn’t leave the house, to me, having some take-away gives you some sense of what we used to have before lockdown. I’ve also been guilty of doing some online shopping.
What is the first place you would like to travel after lockdown?
For now, my mind set on Greece or Switzerland – just somewhere that I can get back in touch with nature!
What is the thing you could have done more if you knew this lockdown could happen?
I don’t know… cliché as is it… I have no regrets!
