On Industry, Marisa Abela Takes Control

Abela, who plays Industry’s Yasmin, an anxious people pleaser who channels her feelings of inferiority at work into a dominant bedroom persona, refuses to be put in a box. “I think that that’s what it’s all about for me,” she says. “Creating a repertoire of incredibly different parts.” Considering she’s already set to appear in the crime thriller Rogue Agent and Greta Gerwig’s Barbie, she’s well on her way.
