Daisy Edgar-Jones has said she would like to "morph" as an actress.

The Normal People star (22) told Harper's Baz-aar she is "really excited to keep exploring the things I want to do".

The young Londoner has been named among the magazine's women of the year.

Edgar-Jones discussed the future of her career in an interview with the publication.

"I'd like to see how much I can morph and change and learn," she said.

"I'm excited to keep exploring what I can do."

Reflecting on the worldwide success of Normal People, she said she feels "very lucky to have been part of such a special show that has resonated with a lot of people everywhere".

Magical

"Television has been the thing that has got us all through," she added.

Edgar-Jones said attending the Baftas was "the most magical day".

"Getting my make-up and hair was fun, and showing off my shoes," she said.

"Now I'm just sitting here in my slippers."

The actress, who played Marianne in the BBC adaptation of Co Mayo author Sally Rooney's novel, also discussed what auditioning is like during the Covid-19 pandemic.

"I've got quite good at balancing up the camera and doing the lighting," she said.

"The only thing is working out your eyeline.

"Sometimes I get a bit shy if I'm staring at the camera too much."

She also discussed working with new social distancing rules in place, saying it feels "a wee bit strange at first, but it's mad how used to things you get".

"Actually, I'm just so happy to be back working," she added.
