In 2020, Normal People was one of my favorite television shows. It was the story, but it was also the actors.
Daisy Edgar-Jones is one of the most talented actors I have had the pleasure of seeing on the television screen. But one thing I haven’t wondered about her taking on the role of Marianne.
Why Marianne had bangs?
Well leave it to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show last week to ask the question of why she had fringe. I guess for science, or you know, trying to come up with a question no one else had.
“It’s so funny ’cause my fringe came from a result of not getting a part I really wanted,” Daisy shared with Jimmy Fallon. “And I was so sad and I was like, ‘Right, I’m gonna do a change, I’m just gonna chop off all my front bits of my hair.’”
Daisy continued, “Then after that I got a job, so I do owe a lot of my career to — I seem to only be able to act if you can only see a partial amount of my face.”
Inquiring minds didn’t want to know, but now we do. Oh and also in case you were wondering, her flatmate cut them.
Normal People is streaming on Hulu.
