Jaime Winstone - Jaime Winstone's Dream Movie
Jaime Winstone enjoyed playing the titular teen detective in new movie 'Elfie Hopkins' because it was the closest role to herself she has ever had.
Jaime Winstone's latest role was a "dream come true".
The British actress takes on the title role in 'Elfie Hopkins' - which also stars her actor father Ray Winstone - and she found it "nice" playing the teen detective on the quest of uncovering the truth about a family of cannibals because the character is so much like her real self.
She said: "Elfie's been an alter ego of mine for a while now and it's a dream come true to play her.
"She is feral and there is a real vulnerability to her. I haven't played someone like this before - but this is probably the nearest person to my real self, which is nice."
Ray - who stars in the film as the village butcher - enjoyed working with his daughter on the movie, but admits it took him a while to get used to the idea of not worrying about her performance.
He said: "Usually I turn up on set and I just worry about what I am going to do.
"But with your own children, you worry more about them and want them to be the best. I had to get over that quickly and let Jaime get on with it."
