Who: Annabelle Wallis, Oxfordborn actress (recently seen in The Mummy with Tom Cruise, and Tag with Jeremy Renner). She is Cartier’s new face for its Panthere watches and jewellery. What: Her 10 faves, from people she admires, to London haunts.
"Cartier picked Wallis for her “strength of character, fearless spirit and hunger for self expression”."
“I’d love to work with anyone who challenges me. I particularly admire Frances McDormand for her interesting choices and bold, fearless characters. Also, Javier Bardem and Sam Rockwell.”
“Director Wong Kar Wai. Another is Yorgos Lanthimos. I love their works so, so much.”
3 CHARACTER SHE HAS PLAYED
“Grace in Peaky Blinders. She is so beautifully ﬂawed.”
4 ON-THE-ROAD MUSIC
“The Beatles’ Abbey Road A is always with me on my travels. I also listen to Blood Orange, Kaytranada, and my best friend’s band, Lyves.”
5 FOR BRUNCH
“In London, it’s Bistrotheque B, which is in the arts district where there are galleries and the ambience is cool and eclectic, and it always has someone playing the piano. Also, The River Cafe, because like Bistrotheque, it’s such a London staple it has such amazing food and the space is amazing. And I love The Wolseley for a fancy affair.”
“Daunt Books C in Marylebone, London. In Los Angeles, it’s The Last Bookstore. Between paperbacks and a Kindle, I still prefer the former, although I use an iPad for my scripts.”
7 FORMULA FOR A FUN NIGHT OUT
“Chiltern Firehouse D for dinner, then let life take you from there; it’s always interesting. For drinks, I like any East End pub. I love places that have history, and all the pubs in that area have been around forever. I love the glamour of Claridge’s before the theatre.”
8 VINTAGE MARKET
“Portobello Road on Fridays, and East London on Sundays.”
9 SKINCARE ROUTINE
“Moisturise many times a day and drink lots of water. I keep it very simple. I use Dr Lancer products and love all of them!”
10 MAGIC TIME OF THE DAY
“When the sun is going down and the light is gold and pink.” – RT
