While speaking to the Evening Standard, the actress said that she has many work opportunities coming her way.

She explained: “They have bizarre plot lines and are more avant garde, because we are in a time where everything doesn’t make sense.

“There is something so large going on at the moment and people are at home sitting with the horrible, not getting distracted by going out with friends, where they tell themselves it doesn’t matter and they will feel better.

“This is requiring people to reflect on humanity and understand high emotion and it is coming out in the writing.”
