SBJCT JOURNAL – Meet Lucy Boynton, much more than your latest blonde breakaway bombshell. We talked inspiration and evolving with your career. Captured in LA clad in some of Miu Miu’s latest most IT GIRL looks, for your reading and viewing pleasure.

Have you had a role that you really identify with most with? What was it?
I’ve realised recently what excites me most is if there isn’t much at all that I can identify with in the character I’m playing. Obviously in order to play them you have to have empathy for them, and so to find that you try to draw lines in abstract ways between your experience and theirs, but I wouldn’t want to play someone close to me. There’s no journey or adventure there. There’s more to learn from someone further from your own existence.

Was there a moment in your life where you knew 100% you wanted to be an actress, and how did you make it a reality?
I had a few years going through an awkward teen phase where I was auditioning several times a week and getting nothing. I had suddenly become too old for the child roles and was still too young for the adult roles so it was quite relentless rejection. It made me question myself and how much I needed or wanted to be in this industry if this was an insight into what it would be like. As crap as it felt at the time I’m now really grateful to have had that period to step back and see it all more clearly, to check myself and what I was really looking for in it. It forced me to acknowledge just how much I love it and need it and how much I’m willing to put into it.

How has your career changed from when you first started acting at such a young age, and how do you hope to evolve in the next few years?
I started when I was twelve so I’d say it’s evolved quite a bit! One thing I’d say is that I’m much more deliberate in my process and preparation now. It’s been a fierce education and I’m learning better how to get as much as I can out of it, learn as much as I can from each job and each person I work with.

THE LAST MAGAZINE – Acting is not a game of make-believe for Lucy Boynton, star of the new film Bohemian Rhapsody. No newcomer to the scene, her lead role opposite Rami Malek as Queen’s Freddie Mercury proves the New York-born, London-raised actor is destined for success.

In the biopic, directed by Bryan Singer of X-Men fame, the 24-year-old Boynton plays Mary Austin, Mercury’s wife and longtime muse who inspired the ballad “Love of My Life.” The hotly anticipated film follows the founding of British rock band Queen in London in the early Seventies, focusing on the life story of the icon and visionary lead singer Mercury.

At first, Boynton didn’t jump at the role, she admits. “I’m quite tentative when it comes to biopics,” she explains, “because they cross a line into intrusiveness or exposing someone who isn’t alive or around to draw a line or defend themselves.” However, upon reading the script, she changed her mind: “It’s a celebration and an ode to this person and these brilliant minds that formed Queen. It doesn’t shy away from anything.” The Fox producers called Boynton on a Tuesday, having worked closely with her on the star-studded Murder on the Orient Express the year before. She signed on the following day and just two days later, she was on a plane home to begin filming.

Boynton’s interest in acting began early, inspired by a school drama teacher who sparked a sense of wonder in her as a child. “She taught us something that I still find most fascinating about this job: You aren’t pretending to be someone else, you are really embodying this person,” she recalls. “At its best, you really step out of yourself and become the other person, which is a very strange thing to be able to teach ten-year-olds.”

CONTENT MODE Considering your formative years growing up in the UK, did that had any influence on your various roles in British centric films?
One of the reasons I’m so drawn to this job is the life-hopping, time-hopping element of it. London has always been my home so to get to explore it in new ways throughout different decades and centuries and through the eyes and experiences of such contrasting perspectives is a total thrill. It feels like a behind-the-scenes history lesson.

Can you describe the research for your role as Mary Austin in Bohemian Rhapsody which is set during an iconic time in music history ?
My first step was watching all the interviews she’s done to try and gauge what she’s happy talking about publicly, and how she spoke about some of the moments we specifically address in the film. Also it wasn’t so much about focusing on her ticks and idiosyncrasies as one might usually have to hone in on. Because I’m playing her at a time and age much earlier than the interviews were taken I focused more on how she described her experience and tried to get into the mindset of how someone innocent of hindsight might see it. And beyond that Brian May, who actually introduced Freddie and Mary to one another, was my main source of information and opinion. He was incredibly generous with his time we were so so lucky.

Mary Austin is known to be very private; were you able to meet Mary and discuss her life with Freddie Mercury? And her life without him?
Unfortunately as much as I would have liked to, and would still like to, I didn’t get the opportunity to meet Mary or have a conversation with her, which added another pressure of wanting to portray her story honestly but with as much respect to her boundaries as possible. Also because I wasn’t able to ask her about the specific moments we address I am very much aware, and hope the audience understand too, that my portrayal of her is an interpretation of her experience.
