You may know her as one of the stars featured in December Vogue, but we caught up with actress turned director Juliette Madeley before her shoot to get the real dl. "It's been a dream, honestly," she told us when asked about this past year and how far she's come. "I can't wait for everyone to see the product of all this work I've been fortunate to have." Her hands move as she speaks, a habit she tries valiantly to control for the sake of the surrounding makeup artists. We then decided to indulge in a round of rapidfire with the self declared small town girl, with some entertaining results.
