Canberra girl set to star in the next Tim Burton movie

By OzChick 25 August 2008 24 reports that Canberra-based actress Mia Wasikowska has been selected to play Alice in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.

Also confirmed is that Johnny Depp will be a cast member in this movie, possibly playing the Mat Hatter.

Does anyone know this girl or which school she attended?

I’m quite impressed that a local girl has scored such a great role.

What’s Your opinion?

Don’t forget to swat up on kiddie shows this week, although knowing Overheard the questions will probably be like, “What Norwegian children’s show in 1958 was the best-grossing television series of all time?” and the answer will be something like “Meerschweinchen og Rømmegrøt” …

I love Alice in Wonderland. It’s hilarious! Absolutely wasted on children.

Absolutely! One of my all-time faves. Incidentally, it’s right up there on my list of great children’s fiction with the Roald Dahl stories. I loved the Burton/Depp combination in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, so I can’t wait to get along and see this. Fantastic that some local talent is getting some recognition too 🙂

It has been confirmed, Mia is going to be working with Anne Hathaway and Johnny Depp in this movie. How exciting.

At the risk of sounding huffy, this is not recent news.

To compensate for huffiness, I can inform that she has been on the radar of Aussie film lovers for a couple of years now. Go to a DVD store and rent either SUBURBAN MAYHEM (for which she won an AFI award) or SEPTEMBER (which got an ACT release at Dendy about a year ago), and you’ll see why she’s regarded as an up-and-coming talent both here and overseas.

Oh yeah, I thought I knew that face. I thought it might have been a Canberra familiar face (like about 99% of the faces in canberra…for everyone), but no, she was good in that movie.
