“Revenge” star Ashley Madekwe was on hand at the Reebok Classic x Face Stockholm event last week. There, she sat down with FN to talk about her latest “You’re Naked Without It” campaign, sneakers, “Salem” and Saint Laurent.
The English actress said, “I used to work in a cool sneaker shop in London where we would get all the limited-edition ones. I would rock my sneakers all year long. I kind of grew out of them in my late 20s, but I definitely could get back into it.”
Madekwe currently stars on WGN America’s TV Series “Salem,” which just wrapped production this month. Though the show doesn’t actually shoot in Salem, Mass., Madekwe says fans have sent her photos of what the buildings look like in Salem and that the set looks like an exact replica. “It’s a huge set in the Lousiana woods. All the buildings you can go in and out of, and you can shoot in, which never happens,” she said.
The Season 2 finale of “Salem” airs on June 28.
Here, the actress and model is the latest celeb to answer FN’s 3 questions.
1. How many pairs do you personally own?
“Too many. Ballpark, 40, 50 — and that’s in this country.”
2. Heels or flats?
3. If you were a shoe, what shoe would you be?
“I would be the strappy black Jane sandal from Saint Laurent, because it’s so ’90s. It’s so simple. It’s everything you want a high heel to be. And not the low one that they brought out — the high one. I love those shoes so much, I bought them twice because the first ones started to look old, and I was like, ‘I need a fresh pair.’ If you Google them, my picture comes up.”
