  • Quotes

    • Adelaide: (on her role in Parade's End) I knew I just had to do this. And, literally, I'm filming this horror film, and the whole time I'm thinking about Parade's End.

    • Adelaide: (on her start acting) I never consciously set out to be an actor. I just kind of did whatever acting I could do. I was writing one-act plays and set up the Shakespeare club in my school, but studying was what I loved.

    • Adelaide: (on her smile) I think the baby face makes it more twisted.

    • Adelaide: (on her physical similarity with actress Michelle Williams) I hear that quite a bit. I love it. I do love it. It's a huge compliment. I think she's incredibly beautiful. Not only that, but to be in the company of an actress—whose career I highly admire—there's no loss there.

    • Adelaide: (on living in LA) I live a very weird life here. People find it very strange. I'm [actually] running a half marathon on Sunday. So, I've literally been running all over L.A. lately and getting stuck in far-fetched places. And then, calling my friends and saying, 'I'll take you out to lunch, if you pick me up.' Overall, I have a very ground-level view of it. It's not all the glitz and glamour that people think.

    • Adelaide: (on how living in several different places while growing up helps her acting) Many actors, I have found, have this as a common trait. We had to, as children, adapt to various situations with either a military family or things like that. [Growing up,] I was always excited to [move and] meet new people; but I always knew there was a bit of a time limit. So, there was no mourning what you've left behind, it was more embracing what you have in front of you.

    • Adelaide: (on her thriving in adversity) I thrive in adversity. I know that's a really bold thing to say about yourself, so please don't make that your headline. I really like being thrown into the works.

    • Adelaide: (on her experience living in Hong Kong) I remember vividly one distinct memory of arriving in Hong Kong and being the only blonde haired girl in this sea of international students, and thinking, 'Oh, my God. There's no hiding here.'

    • Adelaide: (on accepting the role in The Great Gatsby (2013)) That was just my dream. It is honestly the dream project. My all time favorite film has always been Romeo + Juliet. It is the perfect film, because it has Leonardo DiCaprio, Baz Luhrmann, and Shakespeare all in one package.

    • Adelaide: (on accepting the role in Generation Um...(2013)) It was the character Mia. She was just a complete enigma to me. When I first signed on, to be honest, I didn't completely understand her. So, trying to get into her head space [was appealing].

    • Adelaide: (on accepting the role in TV series Rectify) It wasn't a matter of saying yes or no. It was, "Please, please cast me." It was the script and the show's creator Ray McKinnon.

    • Adelaide: (on her character in TV series Rectify and relationship with the main character, Daniel) Daniel is given a new life. Even though Tawney probably hasn't gone farther than Louisiana, she still has the guts to walk up to [Daniel], and ask him these bold questions about life on death row.

    • Adelaide: (on her role, Tawney Talbot, in the TV series Rectify) If you were entrenched in religion day in and day out [like Tawney], you'd draw parallels between Daniel and Jesus's rising
