“You could imagine her as one of the Kardashians. It was hilarious because it’s so far from what I know. So for me to wear Ugg boots and matching tracksuits was just so much fun. I had to learn to pole-dance! But the film isn’t a comedy, and more than anything I had to find a way to relate to my character.

“There is this one photograph of Sam that is just beautiful. It would be impossible to describe how beautiful it is but I’ll try.

The shooting schedule’s been kind of crazy and it’s such a great group of people and we’ve all got so close that we mainly just hang out at the Crowne Plaza. I’m serious.

[Stephen] really cared about all of us having a good time. He said that at the beginning: ‘I want you to have the summer of your lives.’ And I absolutely did. - Emma Watson
