As Juno Temple and I sit outside at Los Angeles’ Burbank studios to discuss her role in Disney’s Maleficent, a crow swoops down like a dark shadow over us and lands, menacingly, on our table, its black iridescent wings outstretched. In the Californian sunshine, this aerial assault is so timely, it’s as if the studio has engineered it for us. “It’s Maleficent!” Temple cries, her eyes widening in cartoon-style, “Like
She takes all her clothes off (artfully so, and certainly not for the first time) in Afternoon Delight, the first of a veritable barrage of Temple this spring/summer.

This post will be a round up with Juno’s red carpet interviews during the EE BAFTA arrivals.
