Rowan Blanchard sat down with W magazine to promote her new film A Wrinkle In Time. Highlights from her interview are below.
On her book Still Here: “I don’t view it specifically about being about being a teenager girl. It’s just about growing up, whenever that is.”
On upcoming projects: “I do have two projects [coming up], but I just can’t talk about them. They are two things that I feel really, really confident in and sets that I want to be working on and people that I am interested in and voices that will listen. I am most interested in collaborators and not people who are going to tell me what to do. I think that’s a really interesting time not just in this industry but across industries; I’m not working for you, I’m working with you. That’s been something that I’ve been thinking about. It is important for me to make things that have some sort of outer effect.”
On women she admires: “I’ve been very lucky as of lately to have really good company in older women actresses or directors who have taken me under their wing or let me know that they are there for me. My friend Gia [Coppola] is literally like my sister and that is someone who is very important to me. I have been very lucky to be friends with Brie Larson, who has really guided me through all of this. And a lot of women my own age, like Amandla [Sternberg] and Yara [Shahidi]. I feel very, very lucky to grow up at the same time as them.”
