You probably recognize Mia Wasikowska from her adventures in Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.” Perhaps you first spotted the ethereal doe-eyed young actress in the WWII film “Defiance.” Maybe you didn’t see “The Kids Are All Right,” but heard she was pretty good in it.
Well, after “Jane Eyre” opens, you should learn to pronounce the last name of this 21-year-old Aussie. Repeat after us: “Vash-i-kov-ska.”
According to Mia, she’d read Charlotte Bronte’s classic tale and actively sought out the plum role in Cary Fukunaga’s gothic remake. Mia, as the “poor, obscure, plain and little” Jane, steals scenes from costars Judi Dench, Jamie Bell and Michael Fassbender as Mr. Rochester. No small feats. The emerging star sat down with NextMovie to tell us all about her airtime in “Eyre.”
Now let’s try that last name again.”Vash-i-kov-ska.”
