An interview with Johnny Flynn, Emma’s Mr Knightley

Johnny Flynn has been strumming a guitar and breaking hearts for over 10 years now. The musician-cum-actor might seem most at home on a folk stage, but Autumn de Wilde gave him a new challenge: for the fashion photographer’s first feature film as director, EMMA., Flynn takes on the role of George Knightley, one of literature’s finest leading men.

Playing the part of a loyal and loving friend – perhaps more – Flynn, who spent just shy of five years leading Netflix romantic comedy series Lovesick with bashful charm and infectious compassion, fits the part perfectly.

Discussing his role ahead of a Valentine’s Day release, Flynn opens up about A-Level English, Clueless, Radiohead, and his all-time favourite love song.
