At eighteen, Maria Enders was successful in theatre with MalojaSnake. She played Sigird, an ambitious girl with disorder charm who fascinated and led to suicide Helena, a mature woman. This role has changed her life.
The 25-year-old English actor recently gushed about his Equals co-star Kristen Stewart at a Jaguar event during the 2015 SXSW Festival.
“I don’t want to give away too much about the film. But [Kristen’s] a real artist and someone who’s incredibly talented and great at like you know, improvising and taking lines and developing them and just working the story out. I can’t talk highly enough of her,” Nicholas shared to Entertainment Tonight.
EXCLUSIVE: Woody Allen has begun casting his 2015 feature film, and he has set Jesse Eisenberg, Bruce Willis and Kristen Stewart to lead the ensemble, I’m told. No comment from the Allen camp. As usual, the film is untitled and there are no plot details, and it’s being produced by Letty Arsonson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson, his usual collaborators. Allen might be the one director who, when he courts talent, doesn’t really show them a script. Everybody wants to work with him and they consider themselves lucky to be asked and if they’re available, they say yes almost always.
Kristen Stewart won Best Supporting Actress at France’s prestigious Cesar Awards on Friday, becoming the first American actress ever to take home honors from the French equivalent of the Oscars. Stewart triumphed for her performance in Clouds of Sils Maria, in which she plays the assistant to an actress portrayed by Juliette Binoche.
Her victory marks a huge milestone. As Gossip Cop reported in January, Stewart was the first American actress to even get a nomination in 30 years, scoring the first nod since Julia Migenes for 1984’s Carmen. Adrien Brody was the last American actor to be nominated and win, for 2002’s The Pianist. Stewart’s win on Friday prompted Julianne Moore, her co-star in another critically acclaimed recent film, Still Alice, to tweet, “YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Stewart began her acceptance speech by speaking some French before shifting to English. She effusively thanked Binoche, as well as the director, Olivier Assayas. Stewart was so overwhelmed by the moment, she couldn’t even hold the trophy, asking the presenter to place it on the podium instead
Kristen Stewart helps to launch the “Storytellers — New Voices of The Twilight Saga” contest in a new video promoting the highly anticipated project. Female writers and directors are encouraged to use their “courageous and creative perspectives” to tackle the “visually unexplored stories of the Twilight world.” It should be cool.
“I am where I am because of all the strong women who came before me to help pave the way,” says Stewart in a new video that also features “Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer, Octavia Spencer and Frozen director Jennifer Lee. Stewart adds, “Now is the time for the next generation of female filmmakers to take a stand and tell their stories.”
Contestants are advised to be “inventive” with their creations, even if it means breaking from the ways in which the theatrically released films interpreted the books. The people and partners behind the “Storytellers” endeavor hope to see a “variety of styles, genres and interpretations.”
Meyer, Stewart, Spencer and Lee will be joined by Julie Bowen, Kate Winslet and others on a star-studded panel to choose and mentor the most promising filmmakers. The winning submissions will be released on Facebook
The Twilight Saga is continuing — but not in the way most probably expected.
On Tuesday, Stephenie Meyer announced that the characters of her book-and-movie franchise will be the subjects of a new short film series created by aspiring female filmmakers.
“The Storytellers – New Creative Voices of The Twilight Saga,” a partnership between Meyer, Lionsgate, Women in Film, Facebook, and the crowdsourcing platform Tongal, will consist of a “multiphase contest” in which at least five directors are chosen to create films.
The shorts will be “based on a broad spectrum of characters from the Twilight universe, with guidance provided by Meyer’s encyclopedic The Twilight Saga: Official Illustrated Guide.”
The development process will be assisted by celebrity mentors, and include chances for engagement with fans through social media.A panel — slated to include Twilight Saga star Kristen Stewart, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer and more notable names — will select the winning projects, which will get to premiere on Facebook next year.
Fans will ultimately get to choose the top winner, who will receive “a cash prize and career opportunities.”
Meyer says in a statement, “The female voice is something that has become more and more important to me as I’ve worked in the film industry. I’m honored to be working with Women In Film, Lionsgate, and Facebook on a project dedicated to giving more women a chance to be heard creatively.”
