Personal Quote:

Fairy tales have an awful underlying violence to them. I think women relate to them because walking through the streets at night, you often feel scared. In fairy tales women are always pursued, or they're lost and they have to be rescued. They have this real erotic, dark element that was really influential when we looked at the film. It wasn't on the page, it was something we created. See more »

Trivia:

Grew up in Canberra, ACT, Australia.
