WONDERLAND – Like any actor (or slightly melodramatic child) worth their showbiz salt, Lucy Boynton practised crying in the mirror growing up. Obsessed with Anna Chlumsky’s character in 90s classic My Girl and “scandalised” by her talent and young age, Boynton tells me she’d pause and rewind the funeral scene, “I’d go up to the bathroom and play out her dialogue seeing if I could do what she did and make myself cry like her… It was a long summer.”

Arriving on screen at just 12 years old herself, alongside Renée Zellweger in Miss Potter, Boynton’s CV lists no cheesy rom-com blunders or sitcom shaped snatches at the limelight. Becoming one of Hollywood’s most watched and most wanted young talents, at 23 she’s carved a career from child stardom without ever once compromising her lmic integrity, climbing to her covetable position through a string of challenging roles. Plus, all those years of practise- weeping must mean she’s got crying on demand in the bag by now.

From playing a singing Irish rocker in Golden Globe nominated Sing Street, to perfecting her American twang as a prescription-pill popping teen in Netflix’s Gypsy — a skill she collected from a childhood parked in front of Sabrina the Teenage Witch — Boynton has defied conventions, refusing to be typecast on any terms. “It’s amazing how much your look, and for example, hair colour can affect [the roles you get],” she says, exasperated. “As soon as I dyed my hair blonde, I was auditioning for the same roles that I had when I had dark hair but it was suddenly like, ‘Oh okay, so you can play the ditzy girl!’ I’m trying to break away from that.”

C MAGAZINE – An air of mystery surrounds British actor Lucy Boynton. “I’m a very private person,” she admits. “I don’t tend to reveal too much of myself, which is why I love my job.” It’s a quality she shares with her characters—whether it’s Allison Adams in the Naomi Watts-fronted Netflix series Gypsy, Raphina in 2016’s critically acclaimed musical dramedy Sing Street, or opposite Nicholas Hoult as J.D. Salinger’s second wife, Claire Douglas, in the biopic Rebel in the Rye, slated for release in September. “The first impression of them isn’t everything that they are,” she says of the enigmatic characters she plays. “I enjoy that slow unraveling.” Boynton made her feature film debut portraying a young Renée Zellweger in 2006’s Miss Potter. “I’ve been working for, like, 10 years now, which is a very strange thing to say when you’re 23,” she laughs. “So much of this job is getting used to rejection, so to actually be working is nice.”

The daughter of journalists, Boynton says her itinerant upbringing has proven helpful in navigating Hollywood. “I thrive on that nomadic lifestyle,” she says of splitting time between L.A., London and New York when she isn’t elsewhere shooting. Boynton will next appear as the elusive Countess Andrenyi in the Kenneth Branagh-directed film adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, out in November with Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley and Michelle Pfeiffer. “My first day of work was in this exquisite train carriage with the entire cast,” she says. “To look down that carriage at all of these faces I’ve grown up admiring was surreal.”

Lucy is featured in the October/November issue of BUST magazine. The shoot is simply gorgeous (and definitely in the theme with some Halloween/witchy vibes). You can visit the gallery now for digital scans. Please credit the site if repost/use, it would be much appreciated. Enjoy!
