"I Don't Want to Be Famous": Jessie Mei Li Braces for Big Breakout With 'Shadow and Bone'

Just a few years ago, acting was far from Jessie Mei Li's mind. She had dropped out of university at Reigate College in Surrey, England, and was working as a special-education teaching assistant when she decided to try a few acting classes.

Li was instantly hooked. "I went to loads of open auditions [and] got rejected," Li, 25, recalls with a laugh. The British actress eventually landed an agent on the recommendation of a director from one of those failed auditions.

Soon, she had a role on the West End in a production of All About Eve and a small role in Edgar Wright's upcoming horror film Last Night in Soho.
