A DREADED sunny day so I meet Jessica Brown Findlay in a hotel near the cemetery gates. This morning she’s in the Caledonian in Edinburgh, opposite St Cuthbert’s (where Thomas de Quincy is buried, if you’re interested). It’s the morning after the night of the world premiere of her new film England is Mine at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. That’s the new Morrissey film, if you didn’t know.

She does enjoy a good cemetery, does Brown Findlay. “I love cemeteries. I find them comforting. There are so many in London, really beautiful ones. There’s a great one in Stoke Newington. I go when I have a day. I like to go to the Good Egg in Stoke Newington for brunch and then walk through the cemetery with my partner.”
She doesn’t have a day just now, though. There is a film to promote. Jessica, let’s get down to it. Morrissey. Tortured genius or knob? “Oh God … Well, it’s the music that has always got me. Certain things can be said of the artist …”

Brown Findlay is a massive Smiths fan. All-the-albums-on-vinyl-sized. And maybe the fan in her hesitated before committing to England is Mine in case it all went Smiths up. “But the script was so beautiful,” she says.
Plus, it wasn’t about the flowers and the band and the theatrics. The film, she explains, is about “the world and soul and mind of someone before that”.

ON a rainy day in East London we caught up with Jessica Brown Findlay on her shoot with photographer Boo George. In keeping with the dramatic weather, Jessica was clothed in a series of dramatic dresses, from Oscar de la Renta to Vivienne Westwood, that anyone with less arresting features and glowing skin would struggle to pull off.

Watch the English beauty of Downton Abbey fame here as she welcomes us to her first British Vogue shoot. You can watch the video here.

Beautiful, ballsy and never predictable, Jessica Brown Findlay tells Charlotte Sinclair about her gutsy new role – and why, despite doing justice to the ballgowns, she’s happier when she’s dirty. (Photos by Boo George) The issue hits newsstands today. We will get scans for you as soon as possible!

She made her name playing the much-love Lady Sybil in period drama Downton Abbey, but is appears actress Jessica Brown Findlay is not well suited to the genteel lifestyle. She has disclosed she “absolutely hates” corsets pledging never to wear one again after being killed off on the popular show.

Brown Findlay, who will soon star in the BBC’s Jamaica Inn, said she turned down another series of the programme fearing it had grown too big, with fans’ obsession with on-screen events leaving her baffled.

She told the May issue of Vogue: “There was a moment during filming when everyone was suddenly saying ‘Oh, so and so said something about the show.’ Or, ‘Have you seen this on Twitter?’” “I just felt, ‘Why does that matter?’ It’s great to be involved in something that people really enjoy, but it made me nervous as opposed to excited.

“So when I was asked about renewing my contract, I thought: ‘God, what if it just keeps getting bigger and I can never play anything other than Sybil?’ “The way to try and stop that was to stop playing Sybil.” On the downside of costume dramas, she added: “I hate corsets. I absolutely hate them. Ugh. I don’t think I’ll ever wear a corset again.

“I don’t even own scales. Getting into a smaller jeans size is not going to make me a better actor.”

The full interview is in the May issue of British Vogue, out from Monday, April 7.
