Juno Violet Temple is a British actress probably best known for her role in “Killer Joe.” She will be seen soon in “Sin City 2” and “Maleficent.” Though she is in her early 20s, she can still get away with playing younger roles. “At this point, I cherish the fact that I can still play, hopefully, a 17-year-old.”
Juno Temple grew up in an entertainment family and went to an English boarding school. She said, “I had this wild imagination. I was never me. All my childhood photos, I’m in fancy dress, playing a Russian refuge or Marvelous Mad Madam Mim. I was just bouncing around.”
At the age of 14 she told her parents that she wanted to act. “And they both literally went, ‘F*ck, no really? If you want to do this, you know how many people want to act?’”

Juno Temple has appeared in the films “Atonement,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “The Other Boleyn Girl,” among other projects, and in 2013 she won the BAFTA Rising Star Award.
“For a woman, body image is always a palpable thing. Weirdly, for me, the only I don’t care is when I’m in character. The idea of nudity, if it feels right, if I don’t find it a distraction, I find it quite liberating.” She said in a later interview, “I’m European. Taking my clothes off has never been a big deal, ever.”
She has since made Los Angeles her home, but still visits England. “When I go home to England, my friends all make fun of me for sounding American.”
If she could, Juno would live in New Orleans. “I love a Southern accent. I think it’s dead sexy.”
She said about revealing too much about herself: “I think that if you have too much of your BS being projected out into the world, and the people know who you’re dating or when you got pregnant or what party you’re at, they don’t look at you like an actor anymore. I want to be Juno, and I want to be a really great actress. Not everybody needs to know Juno.”
As to picking projects, Juno said, “I don’t have mouths to feed now. I’m only taking care of myself. So, I can be selfish and say no to things I want to say no to, and say yes to the things that I want to say yes to.”
