‘Cosmopolis’ Costar Sarah Gadon mentions Robert Pattinson in Flare Magazine
Canada’s Flare Magazine recently named Rob’s Cosmopolis costar one of their Generation Next: 14 Names You Need to Know. This is a list of actors & actresses 30 & under who are rising to the top!
Starring in upcoming films opposite Robert Pattinson, Naomi Watts and Keira Knightley, Toronto’s Sarah Gadon is on the verge of making a career out of being a performer–a dream she’s been working toward since she was a nine-year-old ballerina playing a lamb in The Nutcracker. In David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, Gadon plays Emma Jung, the long-suffering wife of Michael Fassbender’s Carl Jung. The collaboration worked so well that Cronenberg cast her as Robert Pattinson’s estranged wife in his upcoming day-in-the-life-of-a-multi-millionaire film Cosmopolis. Casting Gadon was an easy decision, Cronenberg explains. “She’s extraordinarily beautiful, she’s incredibly talented and she’s very funny, playful and intelligent,” he says. She’s also starring with Daniel Craig in Dream House and in the vampire thriller The Moth Diaries. And yet working with Pattinson had a way of distilling Gadon’s 15-year résumé into three words: Robert Pattinson’s wife. It’s a hot topic among Team Edward, though Gadon finds it baffling. “This is a glimpse into what his reality is like every day,” she says. “So if anything it makes me think, “I’m really lucky.” The only reason people are talking about me is because of him.” It won’t be long before the conversation shifts.
I also just learned that Sarah Gadon was also among her peers in TIFF’s Rising Star Programme — what a fantastic achievement!
