Two more smaller items for today.
– Aussie actress, Rose Bryne (seen scowling 24/7 in the nifty show, Damages), was one of Padme’s handmaidens. In this article about her, there is a small quote about what that role required:
First there was Star Wars prequel, Attack of the Clones, in which she played a handmaiden (she’s in good company; Keira Knightley played a similar role in The Phantom Menace). “I just had to stand behind Natalie [Portman] looking very demure,” she purrs, in her soft Sydney accent.
– Flickerfest, the traveling Australian film festival that is playing Natalie’s directorial debut, Eve, is moving into Hobart before going to Canberra and then Townsville.
