Latest news from Jane Eyre
Posted by Peter Bowen | March 10, 2011
In the Los Angeles Times, Amy Kaufam profiles the actress Mia Wasikowska, the star of Cary Fukunaga’s Jane Eyre. Like her character in the film, Mia proves to be a woman of quiet grace and clear intelligence. Kaufman observers how Mia is constant observer of people and herself. At one point Kaufman describes how she approached her character:
Overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the past incarnations, Wasikowska didn't watch any of them. But she still felt a pull to the character that she wasn't able to fully articulate. "Often, if I read a story and I'm moved, I have an understanding for a character and I don't really know why," she said. She's been in relationships before, but none as intense as the one between Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester, played in the new film by German-born actor Michael Fassbender.
