Oscar Watch: Wasikowska Talks Romancing Fassbender in Jane Eyre and Close in Albert Nobbs

Mia Wasikowska
Mia Wasikowska
I first met Mia Wasikowska at the Cannes Film Festival, where she walked the red carpet for Gus Van Sant's Restless, in which she played a young teen with cancer squeezing every ounce of pleasure out of her young life. The 22-year-old Aussie world traveler's timeless beauty works in both period and contemporary films such as The Kids Are All Right and  HBO's In Treatment, which catapulted her into a series of enviable gigs indeed. 
 
She snagged the title role Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, the upcoming period ensemble Wettest County in the World, in which she plays Shia LaBeouf's girlfriend, as well as back-to-back costume dramas that are getting year-end awards buzz: Cary Fukanaga's film version of Charlotte Bronte's romantic classic Jane Eyre and Glenn Close's labor-of-love, Albert Nobbs. While the clear-eyed, self-reliant orphan governess Jane Eyre falls in love with brooding employer Mr. Rochester (Michael Fassbender), in Albert Nobbs, Wasikowska plays a flirty servant who is wooed by Close's Nobbs, in the guise of a man. She has no idea.
