Florence Pugh says she would have spent her money on being a singer-songwriter when she was a teenager, and intends to release a solo music album.
The Don’t Worry Darling star said she wrote some songs for her upcoming film and “lost confidence” in performing the music due to lack of practice.
In an episode of This Cultural Life, Pugh reflected on her musical ambitions, which began when a teenage singer-songwriter posted a video on YouTube under the name Flossy Rose.
“I would have spent my money on being a singer-songwriter before I became an actor,” she told host John Wilson.
“Being an actor was so far away for me. I knew I could do it, but I didn’t know how to get there.
“On the other hand, recording guitars and posting them on YouTube, playing them on stage and giving gigs was much more accessible.
“So that was always something I thought I would do. Then I did this leaflet audition and it turned a complete 180 degree.”
The actress said she had written “some songs” for her upcoming film, due in March, and was asked if it could evolve into a full-length album.
“Yes, I think so,” she replied.
