Introducing your new favourite film star.
“Anne Hathaway once told me that I shouldn’t judge myself too much.” 17-year-old actor Mackenzie Foy tells me down a crackly transatlantic call. She’s just woken up in LA and is lounging around in her pyjamas when we jump on a call. We’re currently musing over the best piece of advice that she’s received from the impressive list of cast-mates she’s amassed over the past few years. Her former colleagues include some of Hollywood’s finest: Michael Caine, Timothée Chalamet, Jessica Chastain and Matthew McConaughey, to name a few, and for a talent who hasn’t even reached the age of 18 yet, it’s a pretty impressive feat.
Born and raised in California, Foy has been acting almost her entire life. Securing her first movie role at the age of nine, she established herself as one to watch by playing Renesmee Cullen, the baby of Bella and Edward in the film adaption of Stephen Meyer’s vampy Twilight series. Progressing quickly up the ranks, she later bagged herself a lead spot in Christopher Nolan’s time-travel epic Interstellar as the young Murph Cooper; a role for which she won the Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor and fully cemented herself as one of Hollywood’s most promising rising stars.
Rising star Mackenzie Foy has said that she’s looking forward to completing her final year of high school and trying her hand at directing after starring in Disney’s forthcoming blockbuster, The Nutcracker.
The US model and actress, 17, is set to become a household name thanks to her role in the eagerly-awaited fantasy epic, starring opposite Keira Knightley and Morgan Freeman and set for release in November.
Foy said she was in the shower when she got the call from director Lasse Hallström, telling her that she’d landed the role of Clara.“I was actually in the shower when my mom ran into the bathroom and told me Lasse was on the phone,” she said in an interview with Rollacoaster Magazine.
“He asked me if I would be Clara and, of course, I said yes. I was just ridiculously excited to go on a new adventure.”
She added: “It was amazing. It was just like ‘wow, we’re doing this!’ The costumes, the hair, the make-up, the set design; everything is so detailed and absolutely stunning.
“It was really fun working with Lasse. In the beginning process for the film, Lasse and I had a lot of meetings where we would talk and develop Clara. I had a wonderful time creating Clara’s story with him.”
Foy first rose to fame as a child star in the final two Twilight films, before landing roles in hit horror The Conjuring and Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic Interstellar in 2014.
But it seems that the teenage star has even higher aspirations as she wants to try her hand at directing after she leaves school.
“I’ll be working on my senior year, which is very exciting. It’s so cool to be finishing high school. I want to be a director once I finish high school,” she said.
“I pretty much want to make films that will make people end up looking at the world in a different way, so that they will feel inspired and learn something new.”
