After a small role in Game of Thrones, Elisa Lasowski went mainstream playing Queen Marie-Thérèse in Europe’s big-budget rival Versailles – but that’s just one of her many talents.
It becomes quickly apparent that Elisa Lasowski isn’t going to boring. Within 15 minutes of sitting down, I discover she’s a polyglot competent in five languages no less; plays the piano, the guitar and took drum lessons ‘just for fun’; had parts in two of the biggest shows currently on TV (Versailles and Game of Thrones); and, despite this, still does her own paperwork. ‘Sometimes I feel like I’m not doing enough,’ she says. ‘I always feel I should be working more on my music and I just feel that there’s other things that I should be doing. Not just strictly acting but to contribute to the world.’
