Olivia Cooke Central STAFF   November 09, 2016

Olivia Cooke, 22

“I would have felt like such a phony wearing a big, obtrusive bald cap, so I was like, ‘Just f—ing shave my head,’ ” recalls the English actress of her feature breakout as a cancer-stricken teen in the 2015 Sundance winner Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. With A&E’s Bates Motel — in which she stars opposite Freddie Highmore — set to end after its fifth season, Cooke has a handful of indies coming up, including Anton Yelchin’s final film, Thoroughbred. But in 2018 comes the big one: Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One opposite Tye Sheridan.

What made me want to act: Titanic

Reading my reviews: “I say that I never will, but then, of course, in a really sadistic, masochistic moment in my room on my own I will.”

And box office? “No, I don’t understand. What is it, ‘tracking’? How’s it tracking? It’s like, how do you know? It hasn’t come out yet! I don’t get it.”

Best advice you’ve received: “‘Have an extraordinary career and a very normal life.’ I never want to be too famous to where I can’t go to the corner shop and get a pint of milk.”

Millennials, in a word, are: “Accepting.”
