Jessica Henwick, who plays Bugs in The Matrix Resurrections, has revealed that she nearly quit acting before getting the part.
In a new interview with /film, the 29-year-old actress explained that she “was in a weird space” around the time she was offered the role as Bugs and that she didn’t really know what she wanted to do with her life.
“It was my agent. I was in a weird space and I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do. I think I was going through a quarter life crisis,” she said.
“I just took a second to think, ‘Am I doing this because I still want to do it and I love it, or am I doing this because it’s what I’m used to?,” she added.
Henwick says it wasn’t until she got back from a 40-day hike to clear her heard that she finally agreed to play the role.
The Matrix Resurrections is out now in cinemas.
