Daisy Edgar Jones has revealed she carried a moustache trimmer in her handbag because in her line of work its ‘handy to have around’.
The London-born Normal People star, 23, revealed the contents of her handbag for Vogue’s In The Bag YouTube series where she shared that she also carries coffee and an Aeropress with her at all times.
‘And look we all have a moustache and sometimes we have to remove it for certain occasions.
‘And that comes in very handy if that’s needed’.
The actress, who has gone from strength-to-strength since starring in Normal People in 2020, also shared how she keeps Elizabeth Arden 8-hour cream and Chanel perfume in her bag – also by Chanel.
She also revealed in the video how ha been using Elizabeth Arden 8-hour cream while is filming in Canada because it’s ‘very dry’ while she also has handwarmers because its ‘very cold’.
The star also said that she is currently reading Please Yourself: How to Stop People-Pleasing and Transform the Way You Live by Emma Reed Turrell – and that she has discovered she is a ‘passive people pleaser’.
‘This means that my people pleasing can sometimes be more about fear of getting it wrong than a desire to get it right, which I definitely relate to,’ she explained.

She said that if her bag were a character it would be Q from James Bond because it is ‘quite organised and a wee bit chaotic’ but also has lots of gadgets.
Recently, the actress described how finding fame during the first lockdown in April 2020 was an ‘isolating experience’.
The 23-year-old actress disclosed how the ‘out of body’ situation left her feeling a ‘wee bit lonely’ to Wonderland, as she pulled off a series of stunning looks for a new shoot.
Admitting she is still trying to ‘unpick’ the unprecedented time when Normal People soared to its acclaim, she said: ‘It was quite out of body. When you’re experiencing that level of a show’s popularity, but you’re only able to leave your house for a 20-minute walk every day, it’s a very hard thing to connect to.’
Daisy added that it was a far cry from the ‘shared experience’ between her, Paul Mescal (her love interest Connell Waldron in the BBC3 series) and the filmmakers when shooting scenes.
‘I feel like in some ways the pandemic helped our show to reach even further than it may have, but it was also surreal and at times a wee bit lonely.’
Her upcoming project, Where The Crawdads sing, which is based on Delia Owens’ New York Times Bestseller, Daisy plays Kya, a woman who was abandoned by her parents at a young age in the coastal marshlands of North Carolina.
The hailed novel was selected for Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine Book Club in September 2018 and the actress, 45, proceeded to produce the film via her Hello Sunshine production company.
‘I’ve been a big fan of Reese since I was very wee. It was wonderful to meet her and she’s such an intelligent collaborator – it was great when she came to visit,’ Daisy regaled of the entrepreneur’s visit to the set.
Filming scenes in Vancouver for upcoming thriller Fresh was the first time Daisy worked properly from home which, along with other filming commitments in the US and Canada, made her come to a realisation.
Life-changing: It is fast-approaching two years since her role as Marianne Sheridan in BAFTA winning series Normal People launched her to mainstream fame (pictured with Paul Mescal – her love interest Connell Waldron in the BBC3 series, 2020)
‘When I was away I was getting very homesick, so I watched the entire two seasons of Ted Lasso and I actually shed a tear when he ate a Hula Hoop.
‘I realised, whenever I go away for work and come home to London, that I just know I could never really live anywhere else – especially because I love theatre.
‘I don’t know, there’s something about all theatre here and all our pubs – and the love of a Sunday roast that just makes me feel like I can never not be in London,’ she admitted.
