His Dark Materials star Dafne Keen takes the digital cover of DSCENE Magazine January 2023 issue captured by photographer Joseph Sinclair. In charge of styling was Emily Tighe, with beauty by makeup artist Sara Hill and hair stylist Liz Taw. DSCENE Digital Editor Maja Vuckovic sits down for an exclusive interview with Daphne to talk about her beginnings, role models and the new season of His Dark Materials.
I’ve always said yes to projects that I’ve found interesting and found important in a way for this world and that I felt good. I don’t really care about how big the project is as long as I like it, so if I love the project I’ll do it and if I don’t I won’t. Basically.
I really enjoy photography, I really enjoy writing and creating in general. I’d love to dabble in directing, I am just a creative person so anything that has to do with creating makes me extremely happy.
I prepared by reading the books, by researching the character, by analyzing my scripts, and by rehearsing a lot. I think acting is about discovery, so I played around a lot with my character and I got to know her.
