Nélisse opened up about her process of choosing roles to audition for to ELLE. She says that she likes to challenge herself, and likes roles that have a lot of nuance. Nélisse says that these are the reasons she auditioned for Yellowjackets. "I think that's so interesting to be able to offer nuances because we're all so nuanced as human beings, so I love embracing that," she explains. "I also try to go for characters that are out of my comfort zone. I come from quite a sporting background, so the competitiveness inside of me wants to take on characters that offer a challenge."


She's Grateful


Nélisse tells ELLE that she is extremely grateful for the career and opportunities she's been able to have. "I'm so grateful for coming from Montreal because I've kind of grown up out of the spotlight. I've just been crazy lucky to have been able to work with amazing directors—so many talented women. It still feels very surreal when I go to events and get to walk alongside actors that I admire so much. But I'm also happy when I have my little bubble back."


She Hikes


Nélisse spends a lot of time outside. One thing she likes to do to stay in shape is go hiking. She shares a lot of hiking posts on her Instagram page. Nélisse shared these photos of herself hiking in a field and by the rocks. She captioned the post, "My mom's mad because I didn't take a picture of the tarantula I found in the desert. In fact, I ran away as fast as I could."


She Swims
