"Zoom calls are great," said Rosie, who used to work on Game of Thrones as a body double for Daenerys Targaryen actress Emilia Clarke. "They're always so encouraging on the Zoom calls and support through this time like, we're lucky they're mentors."

"Throughout my whole audition I had loads of crystals on me that bring me loads of luck and I think Jade must have seen me like gripping tight on one," she said.
