Daisy Edgar-Jones turned to her Northern Irish mother and Scottish father for fame advice after her role in Ordinary People made her a household name.

The actress, whose mother Wendy is from Co Down, said she hasn’t felt lonely since she worked nonstop after the Irish sex drama became a locked-in hit.

Her family now live in a north London suburb and her father Philip was particularly helpful in consulting as he is the media executive who runs entertainment at Sky TV and the Sky Arts channel.

Daisy (23) said: “I love and appreciate a year of consistent work, but there were times when I felt lonely. Really miss my friends. I just haven’t seen them yet.

“I’ve been away for about 10 and a half months out of 12. And that little time I’ve been at home, I’ve fallen behind. Bad company.

“He (my dad) told me to remember that (popularity) is a little silly. He said, ‘Take it seriously, but wear it lightly’.

“I’m still trying to do that now.”

Before her dad worked at Sky, he was the producer behind the original Big Brother movie in the early ’00s.

As a toddler, Daisy happily didn’t know about her impact on the UK media obsession, but now her parents FaceTimes for media advice and popularity.

She added of the incredible success of Ordinary People, which aired a few weeks after the first national lockdown of 2020: “I think I’m still working on it, to be honest. I haven’t figured out what it means yet if it makes any sense. “

The show was so popular that an obsession even grew about a necklace worn by Irish actor Paul Mescal’s character Connell on the show.

Daisy said of the fix: “I think I find it funny. I quickly learned that I had to part with the idea of ​​Ordinary People as soon as it landed, that everyone would have their own relationship, I don’t know, a piece of jewelry I hadn’t thought of. during filming. Because the show is now theirs. ”

Despite growing up in Islington, London, Daisy frequently includes Northern Irish slang in her speech.

She says she also switches to her native accent when she feels “shy”.

Daisy added in The Guardian: “My grandfather also moved in with us when I was 11 years old. He died when I was 16 years old.

“He has a very strong Northern Irish accent. Another big influence.

“I played a lot of stressed characters, and I felt as if I had kept every bit of them in my subconscious.

“Whenever I’m shy, whenever I find it hard to speak like myself, these little bits of stress go away.”

Daisy split from actor boyfriend Tom Varey (30 years old) after two years together but has remained silent about her love life since the breakup.

She insists she never wants to use a dating app even though all her friends are looking for partners online.

Daisy added about the dating app: “We shop for each other. We roll. I do not want that. I do not want that.

“You go into the date and you can tell within the first 30 seconds whether it is correct or not. But you can’t go out for at least two hours.

“All my friends’ partners are people they’ve met through the app. That seems to be the only way that people do it.”
