Tamsin Egerton Quotes 1309471

L.A. is definitely a Marmite sort of place for me. I used to hate it, but now I love it. I think it really helps if you know the places and the restaurants and the nice bars to go to and if you have friends there. I've got some friends over there now, and they're not all actors, which is quite refreshing, and now I have a great time there. — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 253652

I don't think I've ever done a character like this before, so I couldn't really draw from previous roles. I've been known for doing a lot of comedies in England, so I don't think that would have worked. I completely went from scratch, with this one, and used the research and what was in the script, and spoke to Chris. It's all from in my mind ,rather than drawing from previous experiences or roles. — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 1452970

But, as an actress, you don't want to run into these scenes, willy-nilly. The couple that I did do were important for the character and essential to the plot, to show what was actually going on between each character. It is great to be able to have that, and to be able to say certain things and have certain passions. — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 337564

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 925873

And, the sets that they built are just so beautiful. It's like going to a completely foreign country and experiencing a new culture that you've never seen before, especially at Camelot.

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 2159155

I'm trying to cultivate a long-term career rather than get every job right this minute. That'd be putting too much pressure on myself. I'd go crazy if I thought like that. — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 142751

I'm a complete junky for lotions and potions! I love SkinCeuticles Hydrating B5 Gel; it's like a serum and I put it on my face, and immediately I can feel it. I put my moisturiser on top of that, and I just know that it's going in more. I can feel it working, and I love it. — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 207156

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 260460

Guinevere is just head over heels and doesn't know how to handle these new emotions that she's feeling, as a young woman. Unfortunately, she can't reign it all in, all the time.

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 261895

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 300419

If you steal other people's characters, it doesn't work with the context of the scripts and what is written, so I wanted to make her my own. I was petrified, in the beginning, because it's such an iconic character, especially being a young lady myself. — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 522581

The weather in California is so much hotter than it is in England that it's absolutely changed my style. I have many more dresses and shorts than I ever thought I would coming from U.K.! It's so much easier to dress femininely in a warm climate. — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 750057

What I don't like about Guinevere is the fact that she can't control her passions and urges. She gets herself into quite a love triangle, and quite a web. Personally, I find that very difficult to relate to. But, it wouldn't be interesting, if she did everything right. — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 1002159

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 1066430

Guinevere and Arthur's story is so about the passion. It's about the sexual attraction between them. You can't have that story and show that sexual attraction with them kissing, and then shut the door. It just doesn't work. It's such an important part of their relationship and what happens in Camelot later on. It's who they are and how they bond. — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 1111286

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 1214855

Hairdressers call me dark blonde, but I think they're wrong. I feel far more naturally confident blonde. My mum's blonde, my sister's platinum blonde. I thought, 'When I grow up, that's what I'm going to look like.' — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 1219349

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 1511931

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 1809169

Guinevere has been done quite a few times, especially as a mature young woman, who either is the damsel in distress or the warrior, strong-willed woman. Chris wanted a variety of things in this Guinevere. He predominately wanted her to be real and natural, and make mistakes and be passionate, and be the feisty young girl, but then also completely naive, innocent and ignorant, at the same time. — Tamsin Egerton

I'm not a flying fan. I can't bear it. — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 2150754

I was very aware of the legend, from such an early age. Being a Brit, you are so aware of King Arthur, Camelot, Guinevere and Morgan, the witch. Merlin is this mad magician who's cloaked in mystery. It has that mystery about it. And, it's a lead role for a woman that's strong and has a real journey to take. — Tamsin Egerton

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 2242181

Tamsin Egerton Quotes 2243320

I am my own worst enemy. My friends and family will say, 'You've got everything going for you right now', and I say, 'Oh yes, but!' Which is not a good way to be. — Tamsin Egerton
