Watching Zombieland gives you a few (sensible if not completely practical) tips on how to survive a zombie apocalypse and most of you will remember rule number one: cardio. For Suki Waterhouse, who will be seen in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies next year, being fit and strong is definitely a plus.

This is exactly why she thinks she will outlive her besties Georgia May Jagger and Cara Delevingne in a zombie apocalypse, the Burberry model told

"I would," the 22-year-old said. "I work out the most out of all of us. I'm really strong! And also, I have a brown belt in karate; I've been training since I was young. So I would definitely survive... But I would save my friends too, of course!"

Her protective nature is reflected in how she keeps an eye out for her younger sis Immy, who just ventured into the modelling industry.

"I'm quite protective. I'm quite controlling, and involved. But she's lucky that way," Suki said. "She's been really lucky, because I can be like, 'Look, these are the best people to work with. Go bypass everyone and go straight to the crème de la crème.'"

Suki had to do stunt training for the upcoming Jane Austen parody film – which also stars Lily James, Sam Riley, Matt Smith and Douglas Booth – but her unapologetic tenacity shrugs off killing zombies as easy.

"We did some training with swords, but I have to say, there's not much to it," she admitted. "Pilates is much harder than killing zombies. They're not particularly skilled. You just kind of whack them."

Don't forget to double tap, Suki.
