Her parents are in the media industry
Daisy Jessica Edgar-Jones was born on 14th May 1998 in Islington and grew up in Muswell Hill, North London. The only child of Wendy and Phillip, it seems Daisy was always destined for a career in the media. Her mum was a film producer, while her dad is Head of Entertainment at Sky. Daisy first fell in love with acting aged seven when her teacher cast her to play Anne Boleyn in a production about Henry VIII done in the style of Jerry Springer.
At the age of 14, she enrolled in the National Youth Theatre in the United Kingdom
Tom Cruise was her first crush
”When I was seven my parents told me we were watching Top Gun and apparently I came over all funny and started laughing hysterically every time Tom Cruise came on screen”
She was nervous about the sex scenes
Being naked in front of someone you know can be awkward, never mind being naked in front of an entire crew of people you don’t know in a room full of cameras. Daisy says that nothing could have prepared her for the sex scenes in the show, but she quickly began to feel comfortable thanks to the supportive cast and crew.
