TELEGRAPH – From starring as a secret agent to ’60s siren Marianne Faithfull, it’s the biggest year yet for Britain’s most exciting actor
What’s the protocol for greetings in the age of omicron? ‘Are you hugging? I’m hugging,’ says actor Lucy Boynton, removing her black face mask and leaning in.
It’s a crisp December morning, with anxiety and Christmas cheer swirling in the cold West End air. With her choppy blonde bob, striped polo-neck and high-waisted jeans, Lucy could pass for an east London creative-agency worker.
But thanks to a streak of buzzed-about roles and a sense of style that’s made her a red-carpet star (not to mention her status as half of a Hollywood It couple, through her relationship with Rami Malek), Lucy is one of the most in-demand young British actors working today.
Across a coffee table at The London Edition in Fitzrovia, Lucy – familiar from roles as varied as the young Beatrix Potter, Freddie Mercury’s best friend Mary Austin in Bohemian Rhapsody, and scheming socialite Astrid Sloan in The Politician – is unaffected and thoughtful, ready to talk about everything from lockdown (‘I got through it with lots of books, and Veep’) to sexual politics (her sister, journalist and presenter Emma-Louise Boynton, last year hosted a series of Sex Talks, exploring the pursuit of pleasure, in the bar of the hotel where we’ve met). And especially spies.
That’s because her latest project is The Ipcress File, ITV’s new miniseries adaptation of the 1962 Cold War spy novel by Len Deighton.
Lucy plays Jean Courtney, an agent with a steel-trap mind. The first time we see her, she’s on her way to work, stepping off a London bus in a teal skirt-suit and neat tweed hat.
Lucy is the cover star of InStyle Russia‘s January 2022 issue! Check out the cover and photoshoot below.
Although we have been getting plenty of updates of Lucy with new photoshoots seemingly every week, I thought I would start updating the site/gallery with images not yet added.
Recently I bought a copy of Lucy’s editorial with You Magazine way back in June 2017. It was hard to find any scans online so I decided to buy it instead. I have added these scans to the gallery with watermarks. I would appreciate if you could give credit to the site is posting elsewhere!

I didn’t expect to have another photoshoot with Lucy, but she proved me wrong! Recently she sat with Interview magazine, who have just published her interview online. Speaking with Sarah Nechamkin, she talked briefly about her upcoming project, The Politician and being a homebody.
“The scale and size of everything was daunting,” says Boynton about working with the Murphy “family,” which on this project includes Jessica Lange and Gwyneth Paltrow.
A self-described homebody, Boynton is most at ease sinking into her domestic cocoon with a good book. The last one she read was Truman Capote’s The Grass Harp

I have add the photoshoot to the gallery, and hope we get more! I shall add scans when they are available.
Today I was very excited to see that Lucy has featured on another cover of a magazine! This time she appears in a full spread, and interview, in C Magazine for their April issue. Some highlights of the interview are below.
“It was insane,” Boynton says in a British accent, today’s big grin decidedly more relaxed. “I’m usually watching the Oscars on the sofa at 3 in the morning at my mom’s in London.
“People get quite nervous about red carpet stuff,” Boynton says. “But I realized early on that as long as I’m dressing for me, I can just have fun with it. Leith Clark, my stylist, always tells me, ‘If you don’t feel good, take it off immediately.’ I love her for that. You don’t want to walk out the door thinking, oh God, I hope I’ve got this right, I hope people like it.
I have added the photoshoot to the gallery and hopefully shall scans in the near future!
