Personal Quote:

[on her character in Zero Dark Thirty (2012)] I never met Maya, because she's an undercover CIA agent - it would not have been a good thing to do. I had the props person print out all of the photographs of the terrorists and I hung them in my room at the hotel. So even when I'd come home from the set, they were always around me. I had to approach [the role] like any other character I've played. ... See more »

Trivia:

She filmed A Most Violent Year (2014), and had to fly back and forth to New York to play an American, in detail, a gangster's daughter in the 80s, while she was playing an early 20th century English Victorian woman in Crimson Peak (2015), a huge difference and versatility. See more »
