Cannes Film Festival 2015 Spotlight: Rising Starlet Rebecca Calder


 alt=  alt=

Classy and strikingly gorgeous Rebecca Calder is on her way to make waves in Cannes as well as around the world. With her starring in the highly anticipated “Youth” which we know to have a very risque poster, she may find herself to be an inviting draw for audiences. Hailing from Australia but originally born in North East England, Rebecca is currently dazzling up London with her effervescent personality and appearing in productions alongside some of the best English talents, from the new to the veterans. She’s also promoting her film at Cannes, catching plenty of adoring glances everywhere she goes I’m sure.

Here’s Rebecca giving us a glimpse of her role in “Youth” as well as her upcoming features:

I play The Countess in ‘Paolo Sorrentino’s’ next feature “Youth” opposite Harvey Keitel. I think it’s out late May – it’s going to be pretty amazing. Also a British Independent feature “Love Me Do” Directed by Sundance nominee ‘Martin Stitt’ should be in festivals later this year, I play the lead role in it and it’s a film I’m very proud of. It’s a drama but essentially a crime story / love story.

My role in Altar – I play Isabella Radcliffe, the Victorian Ghost that haunts Radcliffe House. For me Isabella is so haunted by her own traumatic passing, she cannot leave this world and remains at Radcliffe House searching for peace. Her search for this solace however is far from Peaceful…she’s quite terrifying – even for me when I first watched the film! We shot in Yorkshire, England over a very cold winter – running around in a nightgown and barefoot over the Yorkshire Moors was rather traumatising for me too! It was a very special with a wonderful team. Olivia Williams is a total sweetheart and I’ve learned so much from her both professionally and personally. Antonia Clarke and Adam Thomas Wright are definitely young stars to watch – both big talents.

She may play a malevolent spirit in her movie “Altar” but away from the screen, she’s such a genuinely pleasant soul. In true Aussie warmth, Rebecca has so kindly given me the thumbs up for creating the Actress Obsession Blog, acknowledging it’s female led content. Her welcoming nature and with her admirable philosophy – “Be kind. Always be kind.”, many will find ebullient appeal to be very attractive. British viewers would have seen her on the popular series “DCI Banks” last year and with it being shown on Australia television recently, she’s heading for global adulation. She plays an ex junkie Geordie baddy and her evocative versatility in the projects she’s done is laudable. Cannes is being graced by elegance in the beauteous form of the lovely Rebecca.
