The actress, 30 years old, told ES Magazine that distance was yet to be a problem despite the couple, pictured, spending many months apart due to work. But as per her appearance with James, she loves him so much.
On same interview, she said,
“It’s just everything I’ve ever known,”
“Because of distance, I had never known anything to fall apart.”
“I find work to be my happy place, in a way. Because it’s all I’ve ever known: packing up a bag and moving on.
“That restlessness that’s inherent in you is very addictive. And I suppose now I’m supposed to slow down and set up a farm or something.
But I’m not ready to do that. I want to keep exploring the world.”
But she does occasionally look at social media, admitting: “I’m a lurker.”
Imogen Hates Social media and love to live under limelight
Poots, who promoted thriller film Vivarium, also mentioned her dislike of social media. “I’m not a fan because I’m seeing what it’s doing to the generation below me, and that’s really sad with mental health,” she said.
Imogen is the daughter of a Journalist
British actress Imogen Poots was born in Hammersmith, London, England. The daughter of the English-born news reporter Fiona (Goodall), and Trevor Poots, a television producer from Northern Ireland. She was educated for girls at Bute House Preparatory School, Queen’s Gate School for Girls, and Latymer Upper School in London. She started attending the Youngblood Theater Company when she was a teenager, and developed a love of acting.
Career step after age 17
Poots first appeared on-screen in a Casualty episode and played a non-speaking role in V for Vendetta, but she was largely unknown when Juan Carlos Fresnadillo cast her in 28 Weeks later, at the age of 17. Since then she’s appeared in movies like Cracks, Centurion, and Fright Night’s 2011 remake. Although Poots has never formally trained as an actress, according to Giles Hattersley, she has developed her acting skills through a practical apprenticeship that may have served her well, since she is “compellingly natural” in front of the camera. Poots played the tempestuous fresh faced violinist Alexandra Gelbart in A Late Quartet in 2012, opposite Catherine Keener and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
