This is our culture: Amber Rose Revah

The Punisher is on the loose and Amber Rose Revah is out to stop him. In the eponymous Netflix series, the British actress will play Dinah Madani, an American-Iranian homeland security agent pursuing Jon Bernthal’s vigilante as he makes his way – guns, vengeance and all – across New York City. It is, in the words of Amber herself, “an epic journey” – and the British actress is right at the heart of it.

This is her culture.

On-screen performance:

“Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man. I watched it when I was young and before I understood the magic of what goes on behind the camera. I also love My Week With Marilyn – Michelle Williams is incredible as Marilyn Monroe . I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know (the film’s director) Simon Curtis and he would say how she transforms the second she hears action. I am completely in awe of how she manifests her characters.”

Album:

“Anything Queen. Love rocking out with my air guitar to their music in my pjs.”

Way to relax:

“I read lots about alternative healing and psychology. I think we need to slow down the pace of life in the west and take a more holistic view to living. I also like to bake to zen out, and come up random creations to feed to my friends.”

Store:

“I wear a lot of Karen Millen  and French connection – my 5ft 11 alter ego loves Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen designs.

European city:

“That’s a difficult one because I love Europe, but I’ll go for Geneva. It has the most stunning lake, a food culture of fondue and is a couple hours drive to the Alps, where my brothers live and I can go skiing.”

Advice:

“John Travolta accidentally knocked my head with the fake gun we were using in a scene, when we shot From Paris with Love! After seeing I was okay, he took the gun and held it against my head, so I wasn’t afraid for when we rolled again. I think overcoming fears is important, so they don’t hold us back and we can keep experiencing the great things this world has to offer.”

Day off:

“Having a Thai yoga massage and being bent into a pretzel, dancing  & playing board games. Then, some great theatre in the evening.”
