Although she dropped out of school, Olivia Cooke didn’t want her college career to end there. “I didn’t like academia at all. So I thought, ‘Might as well try.’ And then I decided in earnest to go to drama school, to have gone through the three years of training, and then it didn’t happen, and it took over, thank God, “said she told iD in an interview.
Cooke wanted to try her luck at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), but after auditioning in 2014 she was unsuccessful. However, she points out in the aforementioned interview, “If I had entered that year, I would still be here now, and I wouldn’t have done any job that I have. »
Luckily for her and anyone who admires her work, she did not enter. As sad as she may have been feeling at the moment, she soon received better news. NME reported that later that year she was cast in “The Quiet Ones,” an independent film that grossed over $17 million worldwide.
