On be­ing a red-head in Hol­ly­wood

‘I’ve def­i­nitely ex­pe­ri­enced type­cast­ing’

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM -

Bryce Dal­las Howard has worked with Lars von Trier, M Night Shy am alan, and Ken­neth Branagh. But that doesn’ t nec­es­sar­ily mean that it’ s easy be­ing red .“I love be­ing a red-head. I’m very proud. But I def­i­nitely have ex­pe­ri­enced type cast­ing. A lot of peo­ple look on you as old-fash­ioned. I get cast as really in­no­cent. Or else other worldly and su­per­nat­u­ral like in Lady in the

Wa­ter and Twi­light. The third kind of part I get of­fered is wicked. I think I’ve just de­scribed ev­ery char­ac­ter I’ve ever played. Sweet. A crea­ture from an­other time. Or just plain mean.”
