Unveiling the Multitalented Freya Mavor: 10 Things You Didn’t Know

At just over two decades old, Freya Mavor has already established herself as a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry. With nearly a decade of experience under her belt, she’s best known for her roles in shows like Skins and The White Queen. However, her latest role as Daria in the new HBO series (BBC Two in the UK), Industry, might just be the one that catapults her to even greater recognition. In addition to her television work, Freya also has a film project set for release in 2021. Here are 10 things you probably didn’t know about this rising star.

1. A Creative Family Legacy

Freya was born into a family where artistic passion was not only encouraged but celebrated. Her father is a screenwriter and scriptwriting teacher, while her grandfather, Ronald Bingo Mavor, was a director and critic for The Scotsman during the 1960s. Freya’s great-grandfather, James Birdie, was a renowned playwright, screenwriter, director, and physician.

2. The Shining Sparked Her Acting Ambition

While most people remember The Shining for its chilling atmosphere, Freya had a different experience when she first saw the film. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she revealed that Jack Nicholson’s portrayal of madness inspired her to pursue acting, as she wanted to be a storyteller who could make people think and question life and human emotion.

3. A Passion for Photography

Freya’s love for the arts extends beyond acting. She’s an avid photographer with a talent for capturing beautiful moments, often sharing her work on social media and her website.

4. Bilingual Brilliance

Freya is fluent in both English and French, having moved to France when she was nine years old. In an interview with Interview Magazine, she expressed her desire to learn even more languages in the future.

5. Poetic Expression

Freya’s creativity doesn’t stop at acting and photography. She’s also a poet, using her writing as another way to tell stories. Several of her poems can be found on her website’s poetry section.

6. Musical Talents

Freya’s list of talents continues to grow, as she’s also a skilled pianist. Although we couldn’t find any videos or recordings of her playing, it’s clear that she’s a woman of many gifts.

7. Nature Lover

In her free time, Freya enjoys spending time outdoors, whether it’s hiking or relaxing by the water. Her love for nature also provides her with ample opportunities to indulge in her photography passion.

8. A Skins Fan Turned Star

9. Discovering Agatha Christie Through The ABC Murders

Although Agatha Christie is a world-renowned author of detective and mystery novels, her works were before Freya’s time. In an interview with Vogue, Freya admitted that she hadn’t read any of Christie’s books before being cast as Thora Grey in The ABC Murders.

10. Stepping into the Director’s Chair

Freya’s passion for storytelling extends beyond acting, as she made her directorial debut in 2020 with the miniseries Atraxia. With her immense talent and drive, it’s likely we’ll see more of her work behind the camera in the future.
