Best know for playing Nymphadora Tonks in the Harry Potter film series, and the wildling Osha in the HBO series Game of Thrones, Natalia Tena is also the lead singer in Molotov Jukebox – a gypsy punk, dubstep mix-up of extremely danceable tunes. The band has a series of festival dates coming up and their latest EP, Bang, is out now.
Let’s go to the pub. Scout’s buying – you pick the location.
Pub on the Park at London Fields because it has huge terrace, a smoking area overlooking park, sick roasts and bar staff you want to drink with or – if you’re lucky – take home.
Sounds like fun. How about if we want to eat? Any restaurant tips?
We should go to Buen Arye in nearby Broadway Market. It’s an Argentinian grill and has loads of sexy meat!
What are your favourite outdoor spots?
The canal, Angel end. It has pretty ducks and boats and such vibe in the summer, I love cycling down there!
Where do you go shopping?
Broadway Market has such a saliva-inducing array of food. You can get a Vietnamese baguette where they use pâté instead of butter, German sausages the length of your forearm, the Italian cheese stall that’s just so wrong it makes your thighs quiver, plus every type of scotch egg imaginable.
Where do you go to relax?
Lying in London Fields on a Saturday nursing your hangover with cider and food from Broadway Market with all your mates and music. It’s a brilliant place to picnic while watching the stupid east London outfits people sport without even smiling.
What’s your secret London tip for Londoners?
I always recommend Passing Clouds in Dalston to people the first time they come to London. It’s not in a guide book but it should be. It’s like entering Narnia with nasty beats and a vat of alcohol, all dressed up for carnival.
