Aussie cutie Mia Wasikowska (pronounced Vah-shee-kov-ska) stars in the upcoming Tim Burton adaptation of Alice in Wonderland and is looking pixie like with her cropped hair and dressed by Burberry on upcoming March 2010 cover of Teen Vogue.
The 20-year-old Aussie, spoke to Teen Vogue about becoming Alice, fame and growing up.
On her interpretation of Alice: “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 Burton and I] discussed, very early on, just being happy with her being our Alice&making her my own.”
On earning her roles: “I like getting jobs because I auditioned for them, because of my ability as opposed to my celebrity.”
On growing older: “As a teenager I was very anxious. I had a lot of energy and passion that I wanted to channel into creative things, and I always felt like I wasn\’t achieving enough.”
As we know Mia is an Aussie some other facts about her we may not know but want to now:Â her mother is Polish, she trained as a ballet dancer before she became an actor, Mia’s first job was in All Saints, her big break was in the HBO series In Treatment, she is nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for her work in the film, That Evening Sun, her favorite hobby is photography, is set to play the title role in the latest film adaptation of Jane Eyre, Although this is her first cover and Mia appeared in Teen Vogue’s Young Hollywood portfolio in October 2008 (last thumbnail pic).
