The actress is making her professional stage debut in The Effect
Ophelia Lovibond is palpably excited to be taking to the stage. The actress, known for film and television roles including Man Up, Guardians of the Galaxy, Elementary and W1A, is making her professional theatrical debut in The Effect at Sheffield Theatres next month.
“I’m so excited; it’s really quite cloying how excitable I am. The luxury which I am realising I’ve not had working in film and television is the time to figure out every different facet of the character and discuss everything – it’s very addictive.”
Lovibond didn’t go to drama school, opting instead to study English at the University of Sussex – “reading novels every week – what a chore!” – where she largely stayed away from acting because the theatre group was “such a strong bonded group of people that I kind of felt a bit outside of it”.
She talks of her current experience watching the rest of the cast of The Effect in rehearsals as a “sort of training”, and also feels that she got a good grounding in her early work; her first TV role was aged 12 in The Wilsons.
“I was really lucky, getting television work and everything when I was young. You do all these TV jobs and you learn very quickly what works and what doesn’t so personally I’ve never felt ‘I wish I’d gone to drama school’ ever. When it came to making choices and filling out UCAS forms and all that, I just thought ‘I want to go and study English; I don’t want to go and study drama’ because I’d been doing it already.”
