‘WOMEN HAVE GREAT ROLES’
Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett believes women doing strong roles should be a norm, not an exception. The 46-year-old, who stars in Carol, about two women who fall in love in the 1950s New York, believes there are great female performers. “Every time there’s an interesting, complex role played by actresses on screen, someone says, ‘Do you think this is a breakthrough?’ I think there’s a swathe of great roles for women and, there are some wonderful female performers. It’s just time to get on with it really,” she said.
