Swinging its way into theaters this Friday is Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho, courtesy of Focus Features. Co-written by Wright and Krysty Wilson-Cairns, Wright's latest directorial effort co-stars Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith, Diana Rigg, and Terence Stamp, Last Night in Soho follows Eloise (McKenzie), an aspiring fashion student who is able to transport herself into her ideal decade - the ‘60s - whenever she falls asleep. The more time she spends in the past Eloise quickly finds herself embroiled in a mystery involving an up-and-coming chartreuse by the name of Sandy (Taylor-Joy).

During the recent press day for Last Night in Soho, Daily Dead had the opportunity to chat briefly with McKenzie about her involvement in the psychological thriller and she discussed the connection that she felt with her character Eloise, her experiences collaborating with Wright on the film and how much she enjoyed immersing herself in 1960s pop culture. 

Check out our video interview with McKenzie below and be sure to check out Last Night in Soho when it hits the big screen this Friday, October 29th.
