Actress Rooney Mara Is Planning To Overcome Stage Fright By Tackling A Role In A Play.
The Carol star has previously admitted she dreams of appearing onstage, but has put off signing up for a show due to crippling nerves.
However, Rooney has now declared she is looking at scripts as she hunts for the perfect role so she can finally fulfil her ambition to conquer the world of theatre.
“I’m reading a bunch of different plays at the moment and one of them would be in London, and I would love to do that at some point,” she tells the London Evening Standard newspaper. “No I haven’t (done much stage work). I’ve never really done it and I’m terrified of it, but it’s something I really want to do.”
She previously opened up about her problems with stage fright during a chat with Interview magazine, explaining, “I would like to do theatre, but I’m terrified. I have such bad stage fright. I hate being on display like that. On stage, there are hundreds of people watching you. I would not be able to perform on stage… but I’m sure it’s exhilarating.”
Rooney Mara says she does not want to be “reduced to a soundbite” as her success grows – and is determined to preserve her privacy.
The actress, who is nominated for an Oscar for Carol, said remaining mysterious was vital to help audiences believe in her characters.
Mara, 30, also told the Standard she was happy to shun social media even if it meant living “in the dark ages”.
She said: “I think people that I’m close to think that I’ve always been a secretive person.
“I think a lot of people who don’t do that, who are considered to be open and have a personality, I don’t think it’s necessarily them. It’s easy to put people in a box and say, ‘This is them’, but people are very interesting and complex.
TOKYO (AP) — Two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett brought her latest film, the 1950s lesbian romance “Carol,” to Tokyo.
The movie, which has been a critical smash since it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May last year, is up for six Academy Awards, including best actress for Blanchett and best supporting actress for her co-star Rooney Mara.
“It’s an extraordinary honor. Many, many people from the film have been nominated, which is a wonderful thing. It’s always wonderful when your peers recognize your work,” Blanchett said at a press event Friday evening ahead of the movie’s Tokyo screening.
