Following what can only be described as a ridiculous 2012 for the miniature force of nature, Juno Temple is set for a hat-trick of film premieres at the Sundance Film Festival.

Despite only 23 (she'll turn 24 this summer), Temple has amassed an already impressive film roster, with performances to be proud of in Atonement, Dirty Girl, St Trinian's, Little Birds, Killer Joe and The Dark Knight Rises. Talking to the BBC ahead of what looks to be another busy year, she reminisces about her 2012 roles. "I got to play a prostitute, a schizophrenic, a fairy and a dead girl," she explains. "It was a good year!" Currently donning very strong tints of rouge in her hair, the starlet opened up on one of her trio movies, Horns, which stars Daniel Radcliffe as a young man who wakes to find strange growths sprouting from his temples. "It was a magic, mystical experience," says Temple. "We were filming in Vancouver in these incredible forests - and all my stuff was shot at night."

And on acting under director William Friedkin in Killer Joe, she holds special praise. "He's a master of his craft and changed the history of cinema with The Exorcist," enthuses Temple. "I had to play Dottie as as very innocent and very young, and at the same time very all-knowing. To combine those things was a challenge, but Billy helped me so much. It's a movie that I'm so proud to be a part of."
