ELLE – The CODA star, singer and Best Actress nominee talks all things BAFTA beauty…
‘In my mind I don’t think I’m famous!’ gushes a humble Emilia Jones down the phone to ELLE UK. We caught up with the British actor to talk through her beauty look for this year’s BAFTA Awards for which the singer, songwriter and actor was a pretty key part considering her Best Actress nomination. Having strolled down red carpets decked out in every fashion house from Louis Vuitton to Givenchy, with a dash of Chanel thrown in for good luck, to promote her starring role in the critically acclaimed CODA, and a lead part in the internet’s most anticipated movie adaptation, Cat Person, slated for 2022, it’s safe to say, Emilia Jones is most definitely famous. ‘I’m just super excited that real life events are back and I finally get a chance to dress up and try different things. I love fashion, hair and make-up so much – I’m just happy I get the chance to play around now.’
For those who haven’t been lucky enough to catch the 20-year-old on the silver screen, you might recognise her surname, or perhaps you’ll have heard her sing with a familiar Welsh lilt. With Aled Jones for a father it’s no surprise that the once child star has been acting and singing since she was just 10 years old. Take a closer look at Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and you’ll spy a mini Emilia. Safe to say, Jones’ star hasn’t stopped rising since then.
As the multi-hyphenate prepped for her biggest awards moment yet, we chatted to Emilia about the dangers of Instagram filters, embracing adult acne on set, and why she’s a little bit in love with Elle Fanning…
