Meet Meg Bellamy, The Crown‘s Newest Princess
Before she takes on the daunting task of playing Kate Middleton in the final season of The Crown, the British actor Meg Bellamy hits the countryside to lick popsicles, sit on a giant wheel, and tell us about herself.
Do you like answering questions?
That would depend on the question. If it’s about food, films, or musicals, it’s probably a safe bet!
What are you wearing right now?
A vest and shorts. I’m currently in the second heat wave that England decided to have in September.
How often do you change your sheets?
Once a week. You’ve gotta do it!
What do you collect?
Nothing really, I’m not very materialistic at all. Although I used to collect those little animal erasers when I was in primary school. They had names, backstories, relationships. I was probably a little too attached.
What’s your bad habit?
Hate to say it but I’m a nail biter. I try so hard and I get them looking all nice, then all it takes is one stressful film and boom.
Where do you want a reservation at?
Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, Kenya. The idea of being in such a beautiful part of the world watching the most magnificent creatures roam around free is heaven to me.
What do you like to eat?
I’m such a foodie so I love all sorts of things, especially Thai food. I really love experimenting with different recipes and trying new flavors and methods. Also, pizza.
How much money do you spend on takeout?
I try not to have takeout too much, but I am partial to it. I think my last five orders on Uber Eats are all the Plant burger from Honest Burgers. Extra VG Chipotle Mayo, obviously.
How often do you floss?
I mean, I’m all for dental hygiene but flossing is probably the stage I slack on. I’ll see to it, thanks for the reminder.
What’s your favorite body part?
I guess it’s not a body “part” as such but I have a big birthmark on my right rib. I used to be so self-conscious of it for some reason, but now I love it!
What do you do when you can’t sleep?
A big stretch for me is like medicine for sleep. That or I just huff and puff and roll around restlessly.
Who do you tell your secrets to?
My family and friends, they’re the best. A problem shared is a problem halved and all.
Where do you go to hide?
Either my living room, where I light some candles and put on a comfort film (Harry Potter for example), or I go and play Mario Kart with my younger brothers. I promise you I’m a beast at that game.
What do you tell yourself when no one else can hear?
If I said then that would defeat the objective! 😉
Who cares about you?
Well I hope my family and friends haha. I’ve been really lucky to make lots of new friends this year on set, and I definitely care about them.
