“Anne Hathaway once told me that I shouldn’t judge myself too much,” 17-year-old actor Mackenzie Foy tells down a crackly transatlantic call. She’s just woken up in LA and is lounging around in her pyjamas when we jump on a call. We’re currently musing over the best piece of advice that she’s received from the impressive list of cast-mates she’s amassed over the past few years. Her former colleagues include some of Hollywood’s finest: Michael Caine, Timothée Chalamet, Jessica Chastain and Matthew McConaughey, to name a few, and for a talent who hasn’t even reached the age of 18 yet, it’s a pretty impressive feat.

Born and raised in California, Foy has been acting almost her entire life. Securing her first movie role at the age of nine, she established herself as one to watch by playing Renesmee Cullen, the baby of Bella and Edward in the film adaption of Stephen Meyer’s vampy Twilight series.

Normally when you ask the standard “how are you?” question, you expect a shrugged off response of “oh, I’m fine” but Professor Green - the alias of Stephen Paul Manderson - has never been one to shy away from giving his honest opinion. “My week’s been terrible!” He laughs. “I haven’t got much of a tolerance towards alcohol because I don’t really drink anymore and then on Sunday my brother stayed and one glass of wine turned into a couple of bottles of red wine which turned into about six Old Fashioneds which turned into me and my Mrs taking turns praying to the porcelain god mostly yesterday…”

Although you may have thought that after over a decade in the ‘biz Green would be somewhat used to taking on a Sunday evening “sesh”, the 34-year-old Hackney-born rapper has veered away from the somewhat stereotypical trajectory of going out every night, although he’s yet to consider himself a proper adult. “I see my friends who are in city jobs and stuff and, I don’t know, they seem like adults!” He tells me. “I think it’s really weird because I’m one of the few people who really can afford the ability to not grow up.”
