Anya wanted to be an actress since she was as little as 6 but she used to think of herself as not beautiful enough to star in front of the camera.

The actress also talked about her role in Jane Austen’s “Emma,” where she thinks the role didn’t quite represent her.

“I genuinely had a panic attack on Emma because I thought, ‘I am the first ugly Emma and I can’t do this,’ because the first line in the movie is, ‘I’m handsome, clever and rich.’”
