Sydney’s coastal suburb of Bronte is being ravaged by the kind of gnarly weather that wouldn’t be out of place on a windy moor in the prose of its literary namesakes. The gale force winds and arrhythmic downpours, unusual for a spring September day, feel like they’ve been summoned by the gods of journalistic cliché to herald the arrival of an actress known for portraying Gothic heroines in films like Jane Eyre (2011), Alice in Wonderland (2010), and Guillermo del Toro’s new period horror, Crimson Peak. But when Mia Wasikowska quietly saunters up to Ruby’s Diner, a low-key, family-filled café nestled on the main drag, the 25-year-old Australian-born actress—blonde tresses cropped to an androgynous fringe, elaborate gowns swapped for a black-and-white striped turtleneck framed by a cardigan—seems closer to the new wave chic of Jean Seberg, if the Breathless (1960) ingénue were resurrected as Tavi Gevinson’s cool older sister. And for the first time in what feels like forever, she’s found the calm center of a life perpetually lived in turbulent weather.
On screen and off, Wasikowska’s life is always in motion. Since landing her breakthrough role at 17, she’s gone on to play a string of restless outsiders, from moody Victorian governesses and fantasy wanderers to rebellious teen vampires [in Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive (2014)] and deranged Hollywood assistants [in David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars (2015)], her formative adult years spent pinballing across a blur of film sets, international flights, and endless hotel rooms. She could be the poster girl for motion sickness, the very theme of the issue housing this article.
“Yeah exactly!” she nods, thinking back to that queasy sensation of waking up, disoriented, in some listless hotel room void. “It’s just the worst feeling, to not know where you are. It’s very strange. It’s kind of a hard age to not have any consistency, because you’re solidifying your character. I was working a lot and traveling a lot, and that felt kind of horrible because it is difficult, always moving, and just as you think you’re going to get a break, something will come up and you’ll have to be away and traveling. It does feel very rootless.”
