Australian actress Victoria Hopkins, who’s worked across stage, TV and film, tells us about her favourite London places, what about the capital convinced her to make it her home 12 years ago, and her role in upcoming sci-fi show Chronicles of Syntax.
What's London's best-kept secret?

What baffles you about London?
Queuing. We have all witnessed queues of passengers standing one after the other at a bus stop, yet multiple buses stop there and who’s to say the person standing in front or behind you is going your way? It’s baffling!
Who's the most interesting person you've met in London and why?
I have met so many interesting people over the years who have become an extended family who make me the person I am today and have helped me grow into my skin. London embraces the individual demands of your own independence and invites a smorgasboard of conversations. London’s been a good 'mate' to me, for sure.
Where's your favourite place for a drink?
Soho baby, The George, Alphabet Bar, Freedom Bar over to The Phoenix and Intrepid Fox. It’s the mecca for my mayhem
What gets you up in the morning?
Wondering what is the universe is going to challenge me with today! What chance meeting I am going to enjoy, and what opportunity is going to turn my life in the direction to further drive my career. As an actress you have to think that way.
What's the first thing you think of in the morning?
What's your perfect weekend?
What's the biggest faux pas you've made?
What's the last naughty thing that you did?
