Kaya talks her on-set and everyday habits and more.
Here are the highlights:
On the best thing about her job:
I get to see places in the world I never thought I would. This year I’ve been to Versailles, Australia and South Africa. I always try to make the most of wherever I am, and use the time off to do tourist stuff and take pictures for my mum.
On the greatest lesson her mum has taught her:
Everything, but particularly how to be a strong woman, because she raised me on her own. She came to England from Brazil when she was 26, and built herself a career and a home without speaking the language or knowing anyone. She has really inspired me to be independent and not need a man to get through life.
On what makes her laugh:
My dog. He has learnt to do roly-polies and now he won’t stop. He just travels everywhere through the medium of roly-poly.
On when fame gets uncomfortable:
The whole idea of fame is uncomfortable. It’s not what you should want from this job. It makes me sad to see my younger cousins, the Instagram generation, obsessed with what people look like and what someone else has got. I just always loved the work. I try not to be wrapped up in my own dramas, because actress dramas are silly. My friend has just had a baby, and has a seven-year-old: her dramas are important.
