The fast-rising star – who has made waves in David Hare’s Gethsemane, Simon Stephens’s Harper Regan and Punk Rock and is now making a splash as the glamorous, Marilyn Monroe-esque secretary Cleo in the National Theatre’s revival of Clifford Odets’s Rocket to the Moon – talks to Carole Woddis about her dynamic career.
