Raffey for Vogue

Yesterday, Vogue Darling published on his site the interview they did to Raffey for the magazine British Vogue, which will be released in the month of June. They also posted a image of the photoshoot she did with the photographer Leon Mark and a beautiful selfie taken by Raffey. Below you can see the images, in addition to the article:


Raffey Cassidy is 15 years old but her screen credits already read like those of an actress more than twice her age. Later this year she’ll star in Brady Corbet’s Vox Lux alongside Natalie Portman and Jude Law, while previous co-stars include Nicole Kidman (The Killing of a Sacred Deer), George Clooney (Tomorrowland), Brad Pitt (Allied) and Charlize Theron (Snow White and the Huntsman). Until now her age has meant mainly “child of” roles, but as she enters her late teens, Manchester-born Cassidy is excited by the new shift in Hollywood. “There are a lot of interesting and cool parts at the moment, especially about the teenage experience. It’s a good time to be an actress.” What label would Britain’s next screen sensation choose to collect her Oscar in? “Chloé, Louis Vuitton, Chanel… or Topshop.”

“Stacy Martin gave me one book, Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams by Sylvia Plath, at the start of filming Vox Lux and another, Just Kids by Patti Smith, at the end. The Plath one is now my favourite.”

“I absolutely love hoodies, especially skate ones. I used to skateboard to school but I don’t any more because it’s all uphill.”

“I love going to fashion week. The first show I went to was Burberry, just as I was really getting into fashion design. It’s not just about a show, there’s so much more to it.”

“The best thing I’ve ever bought is a weighted hula hoop. It’s heavy but really fun and good for your core.”

“My favourite bag is the tiniest Burberry, and the shoes I wear the most are my Puma creepers.”

“I love making ugly faces. I’m in a WhatsApp group with friends called The Ugly Faces. I cheated the other day by using a filter. Apparently that doesn’t count.”

“I’ve been acting since I was seven. I film for a while, and then I have a massive break and get on with school. It’s getting the best of both worlds.”

“George Clooney is such a funny, lovely man. Before filming Tomorrowland I had no idea he’s known for his pranks on set. We were a few takes in and he thought it would be funny if we hid as the cameras were meant to catch us coming out of a monorail. It helped break the ice.”

“I’m absolutely addicted to organic skincare brand Pai. It’s so gentle.”

“Every month I create a Spotify playlist. At the moment I love Sigrid and Major Lazer. It’s quite cheesy but I really like Meghan Trainor’s new song.”

“When I get back to Manchester, I really like making dresses. My sister and I are making one for my mum. It’s a long process but hopefully by the end it’ll be really nice.”

“I want to have a Clueless-inspired fashion brand I work on in between films. I would love to go to Central Saint Martins, or maybe Parsons to study. I’m setting my hopes high.”

“My mother’s chilli con carne is my favourite meal ever. Don’t ask me how she does it but the trick is in the base, apparently.”


“There are a lot of interesting and cool parts at the moment, especially about the teenage experience. It’s a good time to be an actress,” explains British actress Raffey Cassidy in the June issue of #BritishVogue and now in full at the link in bio. The seventh rising star to step into the role of Vogue Darling, Cassidy – who divides her time between school in Manchester and sharing the screen with the likes of Natalie Portman, Jude Law and George Clooney – discusses her favourite items and why it’s likely she will end up designing a Clueless-inspired clothing line.
