“The shooting was at 6 am Spanish time and the night before I couldn’t sleep, so when we started the shooting, I was veeery sleepy,” explains Laura. This is actually an issue that’s come up a lot these past days: the online brings us all together, however, we can’t forget that we all live in different parts of the globe physically. So, some of us have missed performances, talks or other streaming activities because of where we were. Thankfully for us, the team behind Miss Quarantine got it together and achieved it. “Nicola and Laura Vaquero – the stylist – were quite awake because in Australia it was 2 pm. Thankfully, it was easy working with them and we laughed a lot, so in the end, I just felt a bit high,” she concludes with a smile.
Nicola is spending the pandemic creatively and pretty healthily: waking up ‘early-ish’, keeping a routine, exploring old records (Prince, Simon and Garfunkel…), doing collages, dancing, dressing up, cleaning, and having light-hearted conversations with her mother over dinner. “I enjoy setting myself creative challenges and teaming up with creatives around the world,” she reveals. But she’s also learning new languages, Spanish and Italian, and wishing lockdown is over so she can travel and put them to practice. In the meantime, she’s starring in the third – and last – part of Miss Quarantine, so enjoy watching her eat a strawberry or read a book.
