A good night in is a series of documentaries.

Surroundings Another While

As a child, I got bored with my surroundings, so I would be another person for a little while.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Been About Prepared

I didn't really know what to expect. I had been told about the scale of Cannes, but nothing could have prepared me for just how many people would turn out for our photo calls or for the opening ceremony.

Young Dancing Dancers

I was a dancer from a young age. My parents were dancers; we were taken to a lot of ballet as children. It occurred to me that what I liked more than dancing the steps was acting the story of whatever particular performance I was taking part in.

Surrounded Very Hilarious

I have to say that filming 'The Night Manager' was not just amazing but also very daunting at first. I used to describe myself as the token plebeian surrounded by all your national treasures. All that glittering talent in one place; I knew Hugh from Fry and Laurie videos that my grandpa used to watch, and Tom Hollander's 'Rev' is hilarious.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Myself Doing Want

I feed off variety. I don't want to repeat myself if I can help it, but once they've seen you doing one thing, directors often just want you to do it again.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Play Big Through

Every time I see a good play or watch a good movie, I have the same feeling I had as a child of wanting to be that person on stage or wanting to run through the forest with a big dress on.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Think Move Buy

I don't think it's healthy to buy into hype in any form, whether it's positive or negative. You have to exist in yourself and just move on with life.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Fall Bigger Bit

I guess the bigger you dream, the further you have to fall if you don't get it, so it can be a bit of a scary thing to be that ambitious.

- Elizabeth Debicki

More Which Realised

I don't have a story about an epiphany in which I suddenly realised I wanted to be an actor. It was much more a case of the idea dawning on me gradually.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Shooting Very Out

I was very new to working in front of the camera when I started shooting 'Gatsby', so I set myself the mission of gleaning as much information as possible out of the much more experienced actors. The cast was astoundingly talented.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Like Very Anomaly

People ask me what it's like to be tall, and I don't know what to say because I don't know any different. I grew up in a very tall house, so I wasn't an anomaly there.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Think I Think Dancers

My parents were ballet dancers, and I did a lot of ballet, too, so I think I learned quite early on how to hold my body. Although I do recall desperately wishing I was shorter at school.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Strength Impressed Sophia

I loved Catherine Deneuve, Sophia Loren, and Ursula Andress. They had an incredible strength but fragility at the same time, especially Catherine Deneuve, who had an aloofness that impressed me.

Stupid Lucky Oscar

It even sounds stupid to hear myself say the first costume designer I worked with was Catherine Martin, and she won an Oscar for it, but that was just my very lucky draw of roll of the dice.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Love Invisible About

One of my favourite things to think about is, if you could be invisible and go back in time, where would you go? I've always said ancient Egypt. I would love to see them building the pyramids, and I've always had a real fascination with medieval time and monarchy in medieval times.

Door Technical Films

Kissing in films, it's just another thing you have to do. It kind of becomes as technical as how to open a door, really.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Seen Awful Anything

Red carpets are awful. They're like a kind of purgatory - you stand there, and there are cameras flashing everywhere. One of my first red carpets was in Cannes for 'The Great Gatsby,' and I'd never seen anything like it.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Television Film Often

Often, female characters are quite one dimensional, especially in a two hour film; television gives characters room to breathe and develop.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Waiting Week I Think

I think there's something beautifully old fashioned about waiting all week then sitting down and watching something on television together. I'm generation box set, accustomed to binging on multiple episodes at a time, which is fun but quite a solitary pursuit because you do it alone.
