Wasikowska on Making "Alice"
The new issue of Teen Vogue has a detailed interview with Mia Wasikowska, star of Alice in Wonderland. The article goes into depth about Wasikowska's past, work as an actress, experience making Alice, and her future projects.
Mia Wasikowska spent the first half of her life as a dancer, but at age 14, the Australian teenager began calling agents in Sydney. After he role in the HBO series In Treatment, Tim Burton came knocking, inviting the young actress, now 20 years old, to audition for his cinematic adaptation of Lewis Carroll's surreal, phantasmagorical world. Wasikowska's role as Alice will be the biggest role she's taken yet.
"Alice is such a high-profile character," she explained. "One of the things that was scary about taking on that role is the huge fan base; everybody has their own idea of who she is. So [Tim and I] discussed, very early on, just being happy with her being our Alice... making her my own."
