British actress Emily Beecham won the best actress award at the Cannes film festival on Saturday.

The 35-year-old is the star of psychological chiller Little Joe in which she plays a scientist working on a flower whose smell can make people euphoric.

The actress — the star of the martial arts television series Into the Badland — joked that she was in such a hurry to rush back to Cannes for the awards ceremony that she forgot her toothbrush.
