Sarah Gadon – Cannes 2012Cannes Sarah Gadon
Sarah Gadon, who is portraying Elise, Eric Packer’s wife will be attending this year’s Cannes Film Festival representing not only David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, but David’s son Brandon’s film Antiviral. Antiviral is an Un Certain Regard award entry.
The Hollywood Reporter takes a look at the up and coming actor.
Gadon appears in David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, which unspools In Competition here next week. But before that she will walk the blue carpet for Brandon Cronenberg’s Un Certain Regard entry Antiviral.
Having worked with David Cronenberg twice now, Gadon is an old hand at dealing with questions of methodology.
“It was really exhilarating to get that call again because I know working with him would be a game-changer for my career and it was,” she said.
“It felt like a gift in the sense that all the movies he makes are so dense and have so many layers of interpretations and methods, it always feels like a project to really get your teeth into.”
The call back to star in for a second Cronenberg project was a massive boost.
“It felt like the responsibility I had felt to elevate my own skills and acting had been worth it. It made me feel like I’d achieved something to be asked back to work again.”
