She’s ready to turn up the heat in the new thriller Inferno. But first, Felicity Jones is firing up some answers to our burning questions.

The actress, who stars in the latest book-to-film thriller chronicling the adventures of The Da Vinci Code symbologist Robert Langdon, stopped by for a chat on PEOPLE’s Instagram Stories, where she shot the breeze on a barrage of topics while dishing on the film’s shoot in Italy.

One thing that cracked her up endlessly: Costar Tom Hanks‘ penchant for selfies. Lots of them.

“Tom loves small Italian cars , so it would probably be him posing for selfies at every opportunity,” the 33-year-old actress said of the most memorable moments working with the two-time Oscar winner, who plays Langdon. “I’ve never seen someone stand by so many small Italian cars and have a selfie in my life.”

(And yes: There is cold, hard, irrefutable evidence for that.)

The soon-to-be-ubiquitous actress — aside from Inferno, she’ll appear in A Monster Calls and Rogue One later this year — also revealed that her favorite Inferno shooting location “definitely, 100 percent had to be Florence,” and that she’s since been back to visit other areas of Italy because “I love being in the country so much.”

“It’s very serious, and if you forget this, it’s game over,” she says with dire urgency. “You have to have a bag of Yorkshire Tea bags. It is the best tea that England has to offer, and that comes with me everywhere I go.”
