“You start to ask yourself: ‘Why are they known
as the greats?’ And then you realise it’s because
they’re using their entire self. I got into this dead
young, yeah? I’m not trained per se, there’s a lot
of learning on the job and looking up to great
actors to fill in the gaps with my lack of education.
There’s a powerlessness that comes with that too,
because I didn’t take the conventional route. I think
if you do go down that pathway, you end up with
a lot on your side.”

From an early meteoric rise into the spotlight,
Jack O’Connell’s roster of roles is unwavering.
Covering Wonderland Winter 2022, the actor
takes to the global stage in Netflix’s Lady
Chatterley’s Lover, available to stream today.
Bearing all in the period adaptation, starring
opposite Emma Corrin, O'Connell reflects on
his unconventional pathway to get to the top.
