“Ah, yes. For Mad Max we were in South Africa; we were in or near the desert for five months in Cape Town. It was a little bit like a passionate, tumultuous relationship.

I made lifelong friends there — Riley Keough has become like my little sister and I’m really tight with Courtney Eaton too. We hang out in Bondi together.

I’m having to prove myself and gain some trust, you know? It’s invigorating!” – Abbey Lee on her working on Mad Max Fury Road and acting carrier.
