Rose Williams covers the June issue of the British version of the famous magazine Who What Wear. The actress posed for the camera of Tom O’Neill and gave an interview to the magazine. You can find the whole photoshoot in our gallery and read the interview right below.

Who What Wear | Spirituality, Sanditon and Style—Rose Williams Is a Woman of Many Facets

“I think I was quite obnoxious,” says Rose Williams when I ask her about her early days of getting into the world of acting. It’s hard to imagine the person I encountered on the set of our exclusive cover shoot as anything close to obnoxious. On what was possibly the hottest day of the year, she was utterly charming, even while wearing latex opera gloves that required four staff members and at least 20 minutes of strategic pulling to get on. She was incredibly polite to everyone on set and visibly thrilled to be there. She was confident in front of the camera yet entirely prepared to take direction—the sign of a true professional. Then there’s the face! Oh, her face. She was wide-eyed and cherubic. If ever a person could be obnoxious and get away with it thanks to a “butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth” exterior, it’d be her. But the truth is the 28-year-old actress is calm, centered and wise beyond her years. Despite what she dubs a “gobby” start to her career, it became clear to me that Williams works hard consistently to grow, improve, connect and be grateful. One can instantly tell she is an old soul trapped in a young body, and there’s something innately spiritual about her. If you cut through the cheeky London accent and the fancy costumes we’re accustomed to seeing her in thanks to her starring role in the ITV period drama Sanditon, there’s a hippy close to the surface who should probably be in Sri Lanka, not South London. I could see her shrouded in something similar to the metallic crochet Ganni dress with peekaboo underwear that she’s wearing today, only with strings of beaded necklaces and perhaps a few more tattoos—but more on those later.

What Williams refers to when she references her “obnoxious” behaviour is her naïve and somewhat snap decision to simply just “be an actress.” Aged 17, Williams—who grew up in an incredibly creative household—was originally set on attending art school and potentially entering the fashion world. She dropped out of her A levels and secured a job that any fashion-conscious teenager would still dream of today: working on the shop floor of the legendary London boutique Dover Street Market. For the uninitiated, this is the epicentre of cool and the blueprint for modern luxury shopping. The inimitable staff are instantly recognisable in their black swathes of Comme des Garçons and Junya Watanabe, leaving a signature trail of Escentric Molecules fragrance behind them. “I think being at Dover Street shaped me massively. The old-school cats there are so special, are all very artistic, and they all are quite like magical unicorns. And being around that energy and people that did their own thing on the side of working at Dover Street was so inspiring,” she says. So perhaps it was no surprise that the in-house polymath mentality spilled over into Williams’s psyche quickly. When she took days off here and there to help her costume-designing mother on set and watch the action of show business unfold in front of her, she suddenly knew where she wanted to be.

Today, we got news from our lovely Rose Williams! In fact, the actress is featured in THE FALL Spring/Summer 2022 issue named A Tale of Two Cities. Only two photos came out (let’s hope we’ll get more in the future) and a short film was just released by the magazine on their website, but you can also watch it right below. All the screen captures and the photos have been added to the gallery so don’t forget to check them all out!

THE FALL | To be fair, Rose Williams is exactly the kind of leading lady we’ve all been waiting for. Williams has a singularly unique spirit that’s now setting her apart from her contemporaries. Nourished by all realms of creativity, she started her career in acting with no real formal training and arrived on her first set as something of a novice.

Almost a decade later, and Williams is making all the right headlines for all the right reasons. Dubbed, ‘the most unexpected heroine of 2020,’ by American Vogue, she made a real name for herself with her scene-stealing portrayal of headstrong Jane Austen heroine Charlotte Heywood in the television adaptation of Sanditon in 2019. Throughout her career, which was spurred on by what she characterises as ‘blind faith and determination’, Williams has made a habit of playing strong women with complex characters. And, it’s not going unnoticed. ‘Incredible range,’ ‘standout,’ and ‘luminous’ are among the words used to describe her various performances among the critics. From appearing in period dramas such as Reign and Medici, to exploring psychological trauma in The Power.

Rose Williams gave two interviews for Masterpiece PBS about returning to ‘Sanditon’ and what this place means to her character Charlotte. Both interviews are featured in the Sanditon Insider subscription to which you can subscribe right here for free. The first interview given by Rose was published in the form of an article that you can find in integrality right there, and the second interview was a youtube video that you can find right below, as well as the screen captures from it.

MASTERPIECE | Before Sanditon’s long-awaited Season 2 premiere, star Rose Williams shared insights about how Charlotte Heywood has grown, talking sisters, governesses, love and more! Read her interview with MASTERPIECE and catch up with a character craving independence and expansiveness. You may even learn a little bit about those new suitors…

During her time away from Sanditon, has Charlotte changed or grown?

Yes. It was amazing that she came back, but I was grateful for the gap between the end of Season 1 and the start of Season 2, as it felt like I could step into Charlotte as a really strong second chapter, and I could relate to her more because she’d been through emotional experience. Of all the Austen heroines, I feel most connection to Anne from Persuasion, because she’s lived a bit and been through heartbreaking pain.

To meet Charlotte having had a life experience that forced her to grow emotionally was really beneficial for me because I can connect to her more. We meet her processing the grief of losing a man that she fell in love with, but grappling with how she can grieve, because it was, so to speak, a “secret” love. We meet her craving adventure again. She feels stifled, in a different way, going back to Willingdon because Willington and the way of life on the farm is incomparable to the energy of Sanditon and the people and characters she met there. So we meet her wanting very much to come back to Sanditon, and grappling within a world that feels confused.

What is it like for Charlotte to have her younger sister, Alison (played by Rosie Graham), with her at Sanditon?

It’s really one of my favorite elements, actually. It’s especially nice because the relationship echoes Jane Austen’s relationship with her younger sister, Cassandra, and drew inspiration from Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice. Me and Rosie get on really, really well. We felt very close and had that kind of sister relationship in real life, so I think that despite the fact that Charlotte is pushing Alison away this season, that bond and understanding is there in real life. It was nice for Charlotte to share Sanditon and its expansiveness and its adventure and its excitement with Alison, who has been busting to get out of Willingdon. That relationship on and off screen was a real joy for me.

Rosie is such a light and such a beautiful young actress. She literally just fills up the screen with her glow, and I’m really excited for the audience to get to witness her. I want her to just shine and shine, because I think that’s what she’s meant to do. Continue reading  »
