Ruth Wilson Featured In Flaunt Magazine’s The Dye Issue

September 22, 2013


Ruth Wilson gets featured in Flaunt Magazine‘s The Dye Issue.

Here’s what the British actress shared with the magazine:


On once playing Jane Eyre: 

“What I love about the West and the history of the West– and people don’t make Westerns much anymore because there’s the idea that they don’t work– is that [they show] the start of modern America. It’s when the attitudes developed. I’m really proud of it, because it’s nice to be a part of something that has a moral journey and a moral code. It’s actually something that did happen in the history of America, and it’s important not to forget. Of course, it’s a Disney movie with the sort of stock characters: the baddie, the goodie, the girl. But it’s also in this really interesting period of history.” 



On what she’d be doing if not acting: 

“The other day I thought I’d quite like to be an archeologist. I don’t know why… scrabbling around in dust all day. I don’t even like the heat, so I don’t even know what I’m going on about, but did you read about how they found the skeleton of Richard III under a car park in Birmingham? I thought, ‘How amazing to find that skeleton with his spine going like this.” 



On how she got the role in the upcoming Saving Mr. Banks: 

“I was in the Four Seasons in L.A, and I was in the lift, and this girl was in the lift with me, and she started talking to me and said, ‘I love you in Luther,’– she was English– and I was like, ‘What do you do?’ And she goes, ‘I’m a writer.’ I said, ‘Alright, I’m getting a drink down at the bar if you want to join me.’ So we had a few drinks, and she’s like, ‘You know, you’d be brilliant in this script I’ve got.’ And it was SAVING MR. BANKS.”
