In a recent interview with GQ Style Spring/Summer 2022, Maisie revealed she was hesitant to accept her latest role as pioneering punk Pamela Rooke aka Jordan after discovering the script demanded she went topless- before overcoming her nerves to go topless during an audition. With Jordan’s exhibitionism in mind, the actress wore a sheer top while auditioning over ZOOM with director Danny Boyle – a dedication that immediately flattered the filmmaker. She said, “And it worked out. I got the part.”

She explained, “Just because of everything that happens in the industry and all the horror stories I’ve heard. I want to be in this show because I’m the best person to do this, not because I’m the only girl who’ll take her top off.”
