Freya Allan in Two-Piece Workout Gear is "Beautiful"

Allan shared a photo on Instagram of herself in workout gear.

Freya Allan is a very successful actress, especially among genre fans. She's best known for her role on Netflix's The Witcher. Allan will also appear in the film Kingdom of The Planet of The Apes, which will be released in May. Last year, Allan shared a photo on Instagram of herself in workout gear. She received a lot of compliments in the comments. How does she stay so fit? Read on to see 5 ways Freya Allan stays in shape and the photos that prove they work.


She Stunt Trains

Allan does a lot of her own stunts. She talked about doing stunts for The Witcher with Entertainment Weekly. "Because I love it so much, I did just want to do everything — all the tricks, and fight[ing] every person I come across. But unfortunately, I'm not allowed to do that. So, I have a bit of Ciri in me. It was very easy to play out scenes where I'm being told I need to calm down with how much I'm wanting to train."


She Makes Time For Herself

Allan opened up about her life and career to Numero Magazine. She makes sure to make time for herself, despite her busy schedule. Allan shared some of her favorites in her interview. "I love to paint, mainly people, and often when they're not looking their best. I just find it more interesting that way. Oh and singing musicals when no one's home. That's my guilty pleasure."


She Enjoys Acting

Allan shared her favorite things about acting to Numero Magazine. "I've always loved analysing people's behaviour and the reason behind why they are the way they are. I find it really interesting and that's basically the job. But what also really excites me is any opportunity where I get to work with brilliant writers and/or directors. Those projects are rare, but even if it's just the audition process and you don't even land it, it's still fun to get to even read those kinds of scenes. I think I also love the camaraderie of it. There's something so special about a film set and getting to feel a part of a large web of people, all putting their effort into one final project. I don't know if there is a kind of role that challenges me the most, as every role is a challenge because I want to do a good job. I think if you have good writing, that definitely reduces your challenges."


She Has Healthy Escapes

Allan shared some of her favorite ways to escape from life to Radio Times. "It seems like an odd concept to say you go to see a horror film to escape," she says. "It's not like you're escaping to a fantasy world where it's beautiful or anything – it's kind of like you're being terrified or disturbed or whatever. So it seems like an odd thing to say. But I guess there's an escapism in being distracted by all of that, and watching something which is disturbing or scary, and there's something to that which, like, distracts from everyday life, because it's creating a reaction or there's a survival instinct in people. I think there is fun in scaring yourself. I mean, that's why people ride rollercoasters – it's a similar kind of thing. And I think there's definitely a place for that – and they can open up questions."


She's Proud

Allan is very proud of her upcoming role in Kingdom of The Planet of The Apes. She talked about this in an interview. "It was incredible. I watched a lot of the series beforehand and yeah, it's my proudest moment in my career so far. I'm really excited for it to come out, and proud of everyone involved – all the other actors and the director, Wes Ball, are fantastic. Everyone behind the scenes is just brilliant. I can't really say anything, but I'm telling you now, go and see it."
