This actress has not only got a great name but Ophelia Lovibond has also been a busy bee of late and has a lot in the pipeline for the future.

BATD:How did you get into acting?

Ophelia: It was a workshop that my mum sent my brother along to, just to keep him occupied. He went along and said “Oh, you’d love it, you should come.” I didn’t really think I would enjoy it and then I went along and I just took to it and I loved it. I was ten.

BATD: And you starred in a number of very different films, what’s your favourite to date?

O: Oh, that’s impossible. They’re all so different. They all have different things to offer in terms of what you get to do as an actor. I couldn’t do choose!

BATD: Your new film, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, you worked with real penguins on set with Jim Carrey. What were the penguins and Jim like to work with?

O: [Laughs] Well, I didn’t work with the penguins that much because a lot of my stuff was on location. In a lot of my scenes, I had to imagine them… that they were there. It was like playing a game.

With Jim it was just a dream. I’ve loved his films since I was really young, since I was first aware of film making. To be working with him and being a part of what he does, which is incredible, I just felt very lucky.

BATD: Is he just as funny in real life?

O: He is very funny. But he’s not performing, or switched ‘on’ all the time. I think a lot of people think he is but he’s very calm, he’s really just nice guy to hang around with. He makes you feel very relaxed.

BATD: You were brought up in the UK. What’s your favourite place to go when not on the set?

O: In England? I love the Hampstead pools. It’s cool, and it’s slimy and it’s freezing but where else do you have that kind of thing? [Laughs] Just a couple of these freezing cold pools in the middle of London. I love going there.

BATD: I’ve never been in and I always think they’re so brave to get in.

O: [gasps] Never been in? No! Run along the deck and bomb it in! It’s cool.
