And she snapped pics with Sandra Bullock and Michael B. Jourdan.  About her breakout role in the film, she said she was a nervous wreck to even audition.  She said inDuJour magazine:

'When I learned Steve McQueen was directing and Brad Pitt was producing, I thought, Well, this is huge.

'I had no expectation of getting the role at all; it was just too out there for me to think I had a chance.

'So I approached the audition like a rehearsal. It was my chance to have that role for 10 minutes, and I owned it. Then I got the part and the panic began.'


And in the February 2014 issue of ELLE UK, she's sitting pretty for her feature:
