So beautiful, so gorgeous and extremely talented lady of her age, ladies and gentlemen, here I present you Normal People‘s actress Daisy Edgar Jones.
The New York Times and The Guardian wrote about it; how the novel that pictures the life story of two lovers gazes love-filled emotion through time.
After the first scene of her intimate kiss with Paul Mescal on the BBC adaptation of best selling Irish writer Sally Rooney‘s novel ‘Normal People’ left intriguing marks, fans are eager to know more about her (including me).
Well, let’s find out a bit more about the young lead actress, shall we?
Who is Daisy Edgar Jones? Wiki-Bio: Childhood, Family, Education
Daisy Edger Jones is a British actress. Yes, she was born in Islington, London, United Kingdom on May 24, 1998.
But, her Scottish dad and Northern Irish mom raised her in Muswell London.
We’ve learned that Daisy showed a keen interest in acting since she first participated actively in a school play just at the age of 5 years old. As a child, little Daisy attended The Mount School for Girls.
As written on the website of a college she attended, Daisy was a shy girl back then.
“When I was young at primary school, I was very average at subjects, I wasn’t really ‘good’ at anything, just in the middle – and quite shy. Then, when I was in year five, we did a school play – and that was the first time I remember people saying ‘wow that was really good’ and I thought ‘Oh… I’m good at something!’ It seemed acting was just the thing that I was best at,” – Daisy Edgar Jones.
Before getting admitted to the National Youth Theatre, Daisy attended Woodhouse College. She then enrolled at the Open University.
That’s pretty much about her childhood we’ve extracted so far I guess. Now, let’s take a look at her career as well.
Daisy Edgar Jones Early Career, (Drama, Movies, TV Series) & Net Worth
The once-shy girl joined the National Youth Theatre at 14 years of age. Fourteen is the youngest you can join there.
Daisy credits NYT, which helped fulfill her dreams and skyrocketing her career.
As her career now blooms with success, she admits anyone pursuing a career in ‘drama’ should look out to audition for National Youth Theatre. “It’s the best company”, Jones noted.
It was hard for her to audition and hop in there because it wants the best out of anyone in the whole nation.
But with her passion, dedication, and hard work she made it and confess that’s the reason behind her success in making it to the big-screen professionally.
The Normal People lead actress has already appeared in numerous shows like Cold Feet, Silent Witness (2018) as Jessica Thompson, and Outnumbered as Kate.
Jones also appeared on the 2018 drama film Pond Life, written by Richard Cameron directed by Bill Buckhurst.
She was 17 years of age, when she appeared in ITV’s British Comedy Drama Cold Feet as Olivia Marsden alongside Irish actor James Nesbitt.
Daisy appears with Paul Mescal, Sarah Greene, Leah McNamara, and Finon O’Shea in BBC Three and Hulu’s new adaptation.
Here’s what Daisy says about, appearing in Normal People.
“You can never satisfy everyone, but I love the book just as much as the next person. I want to do it justice”, Daisy mentioned talking to Elle. “I haven’t really thought about it. You never really know about these things; it might come and go.”
It’s not a surprising thing that a girl with her talent bags a handful amount of money. But it’s a matter of can she be consistent in this industry.
Besides, she also portrays as Delia Rawson in Gentleman Jack; a 2019 BBC and HBO series. Additionally, Edgar-Jones appeared in the 2019 series War of the Worlds as Emily alongside Elizabeth McGovern and Gabriel Byrne.
In 2019, she was announced to co-star with renowned Bollywood figures like Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt in the 2021 action film ‘RRR’.
Some reports suggest that Daisy Edgar Jones’ net worth is $1.5 million; however, we’ve estimated that her net worth is between $100k – $1 Million. But who cares, as long as she entertain us.
Be that as it may, we hope that this young and beautiful actress achieves whatever she pleads in her life. I hope to see some iconic on-screen appearance too.
Is Daisy and Paul Real Life Couple? Who is her Boyfriend?
No, of course not. Despite there’s so much intimacy between the on-screen characters, Paul is not her real boyfriend.
In fact, the duo seems very much indulged inside their character, giving us a warm touch of lovey-dovey couples.
For now, she’s possibly single and busy with her career. We may soon hear about the good news of her boyfriend. Until then, we wish her finding the true love of her life.
