GLAMOUR UK – In the new issue, Jenna talks about playing Queen Victoria, saying: “She’s this young, vibrant girl who’s full of exuberance and energy and doesn’t really hide it. I find her fascinating. You couldn’t tame her. She’s passionate and temperamental. She was a revelation to me.”

She also discusses her time on Doctor Who, the show which made her a household name.

“When my episode began, Karen (Gillan) was still there, and while I was there Matt left and Peter started. You know it’s yours for a little moment in time and then it moves on without you, so I was prepared for that. You do get really attached though, because of the friendships you make.”

But if you think she’s got too big for her boots – think again! Her friends all keep her grounded: “I’ve got a WhatsApp group with my friends and we do, ‘What are you doing right now?’ messages during the day. One’s a teacher, one’s a broker and one works in TV documentaries. It was quite funny, as to that question, I’d just send them an alien.”

On whether fellow actresses Perdita Weeks and Sammy Winward – good friends who both appear all over Jenna’s lnstagram – are her girl squad:

“If I was to call my friends my ‘girl squad’ they might disown me”. (source)

THE TELEGRAPH – Jenna Coleman shot to fame as Clara Oswald, the Doctor’s assistant, in Doctor Who. She now stars as Queen Victoria in a new ITV series based on the monarch’s life

In a little black dress and a pair of sky scraper heels, Jenna Coleman is sitting in a room steeped in royal history. It was in this once grand, if now slightly dog-eared private chamber, on the first floor of Kensington Palace, where in June 1837 Alexandrina Victoria received the news that she was to be the new Queen of England.

“Her uncle William IV had died in the night and she was standing here in her dressing gown,” says Coleman. “At just 18, she was about to become the most powerful woman in the world.”

Having just spent seven months filming Victoria, the ambitious eight part ITV drama that charts the young Queen’s life, Coleman has got to know her intimately.

Victoria was just 4ft 11ins tall, something that Coleman, at 5ft 3, can sympathise with.

“Maybe being small – and her feet didn’t even reach the floor when she sat on the throne – was part of what made her so obstinate, impatient, forthright and formidable,” Coleman says. “It’s difficult to dominate and have your opinions listened to when you are so much shorter than everyone else in the room.”

Aged 30, she has, she says, “learned to own my height” and sees it at times as a positive advantage.

“It makes you look a lot younger than you are – and, hopefully, people won’t query me playing an 18–year-old when the series starts.”

Like the diminutive monarch, too, Coleman’s energy and spark can command even this cavernous room. She has the authority and diction of a stylish young Londoner, although the second syllable in ‘grasp’, for example, is pronounced ‘asp’ – like the snake. If you cut her through the middle, she says, the name of her hometown, Blackpool, would be written through her like the proverbial seaside rock.

THE GUARDIAN“I don’t like that word,” says Jenna Coleman, wrinkling her nose. “People describe me as that a lot, and it makes me cringe. It feels dirty.”

In the garden lounge of a London hotel, we are talking about the word driven. “Something about it feels ruthless, which doesn’t sit well with me.” It would be impossible to describe the gentle, slightly reticent presence next to me as gimlet-eyed. But it’s also hard to describe her rise without sensing that ambition and determination must have played a part. Her first job, at just 19, was wild child Jasmine Thomas in Emmerdale. Intended to be a small role, she grew into a series regular, and Coleman set aside thoughts of drama school to play her for five years. She followed this with acclaimed BBC series Waterloo Road, original dramas by Julian Fellowes and Stephen Poliakoff, and then the big one. In 2012 she was anointed Clara Oswald, the sparky and instantly lovable companion to Doctor Who, beamed into millions of households across the world. These things don’t just happen.

[…]

“A lot of interviews talk about Emmerdale and then Doctor Who – but there were six years between those,” she protests. “You should have seen me when I was trying to get an agent. It was like, ‘I’ve only worked in soap, I’ve not been to drama school, I’m 22 years old and haven’t worked for a year. I’m a great catch!’ ” She’d stayed longer than she wanted to on Emmerdale; despite having been nominated for best newcomer at the National Television Awards, it took her a long time to be considered for significant roles afterwards. “I’m northern, and working class, so people put you in a box. It’s crazy.” She would be sent scripts for supporting characters with northern accents, “and I’d be pointing out different parts, saying, ‘I think I can do that.’ It took a long time to get any meetings. I had to take a job at a pub in Hampstead.”

She’s describing the kind of unpromising situation that can consume young actors for a decade or longer, but her zeal to turn things around marks her out. She became an avid self-taper, sending casting directors scene footage in very different roles, showing off her range. “I love playing away from myself, expanding people’s perceptions.” She took herself out to LA for pilot season, where she went up for various unattainable parts, returning home jobless but fearless, and rich in audition experience.
