On how the death of her father when she was a child changed her: “Someone once told me that whatever age a parent dies, as you barrel towards it you go, ‘Have I achieved enough?’” (Her father died when he was 40, Negga is now 36). “I think your sense of time gets warped because you realise, especially if you’ve lost a parent early on, that it’s not infinite. Things die and things go away.”

On being the only black child at school: “You’re outside of something which gives you a unique perspective. You become very observant and sensitive to people’s mood shifts. You see people assessing you. That’s really intriguing. You learn to shapeshift. If that’s a positive or negative, I’m not sure. It’s about survival.”
