International Star You Should Know: British Actress Vanessa Kirby

6 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At 28, Vanessa Kirby is having a busy year: She’s starring in Netflix’s first U.K.-produced series, “The Crown,” as well as three films — romance “Me Before You,” actioner “Kill Command” and period drama “Genius.” On stage, she follows a February turn in “Uncle Vanya” in London with “A Streetcar Named Desire,” now in previews ahead of its New York opening at St Ann’s Warehouse.

Early Inspiration: Kirby attended local plays as a teen, but it wasn’t until she saw a National Theatre production of “The Cherry Orchard” with Vanessa Redgrave that she fully comprehended her passion for acting. “I got so drawn into it that I left thinking, ‘I wanna do what they’re doing somehow — tell stories in some kind of way that might move people,’ ” she says.

27 January 2016 5:52 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Fade in on a girl with a hunger for fame and a face and a name to remember: Unknown actress Cate Blanchett is trying to make it on Broadway. Blanchett, just a girl from a Australia who's come to New York with big dreams, will make her Broadway debut in The Present, an adaptation of Chekhov's first play, which is often referred to as Platonov. The script, written by Blanchett's husband, Andrew Upton, updates the play's setting to a country house in the 1990s — two decades before the actual present, but what can you do? Blanchett and her co-star Richard Roxburgh headlined The Present's world premiere in Sydney last year, back in the past. The Present's Broadway iteration will be directed by John Crowley (Brooklyn) and it is set to open this fall, in the future. The struggling actress has previously appeared in stage productions in New York, including The Maids and Uncle Vanya, »
