She’s only 26, but Juno Temple has been stealing scenes with her fiery energy for over a decade. Now, as one of the stars of HBO’s highly anticipated 70s rock and roll drama Vinyl, the British actress is set to make the leap from indie favorite to full blown superstardom, effortlessly charming the hell out of anyone she encounters on the way.

They say you ought to dress for the job you want, which is precisely what Juno Temple did when she auditioned for her role in Vinyl. Premiering this month, the HBO show, which counts Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger as executive producers, follows a music exec (Bobby Cannavale) as he hustles through the parties and punk rock scene of 70s New York. The British actress showed up to read for precocious A&R assistant Jamie Vine in high-waisted bell-bottoms and a t-shirt by Seditionaries, Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren’s 70s clothing line. “It has Minnie and Mickey Mouse fucking on the front of it, with an anarchy symbol in one of his ears.”

Round two was with Scorsese himself, at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles. This time, Temple rocked a crocheted, bell-sleeved mini dress with nude fishnets and platforms. Though she was “pretty fucking nervous,” she got a call ten days later, while prepping for the UTA Christmas party, saying she landed the part. “I was in nothing but my knickers in my living room, and I just sat down, weeping. I called and woke my whole family up at 3 o’clock in the morning.”

By now, her family is used to the ups and downs of showbiz. At 26, Temple has appeared in over 35 films, which range from indie favorites like Killer Joe to blockbusters like The Dark Knight Rises. Not to mention that her mother, Amanda Temple, is a producer, and her father is legendary punk filmmaker, Julien.

Temple’s first face-to-face with Scorsese proved nerve-wracking, but meeting Jagger was all gravy. After all, she had already buddied up with his son, James, who plays the lead singer of the show’s punk band Nasty Bits.“Jimmy and the rest of the band nailed it. They exuded this mad, raw energy.”

The actress also returns to the big screen later this year, opposite Timothy Spall, in the unlikely buddy film Away. It’s set in the English town of Blackpool, which Temple describes as, “Vegas meets Coney Island meets Northern England. You see some pretty mad shit.” Take, for example, this spirited Spall fan attending a bachelorette party: “She was walking around with a huge red dildo, and she screams ‘Oi Tim! Sign my dildo!’”

Given their symbiotic fashion sense and mutual love of punk music, it seems Vinyl’s Jamie Vine was the part Temple was born to play. It’s also the role that will propel her from indie darling to full blown star. Whatever the future holds, Temple is game. “Jamie wants to live life, and I definitely feel that same hunger to experience things — to listen to people, learn from people and make music, even if you can’t play the fucking guitar.”
