AC­TOR

The Aus­tralian ac­tress’ in­spired turn as Amma Crellin op­po­site Amy Adams and Pa­tri­cia Clark­son in HBO’S crit­i­cally ac­claimed “Sharp Ob­jects” won her a lot of at­ten­tion. And now Scanlen has just been cast as Beth March in Greta Ger­wig’s star-stud­ded adap­ta­tion of “Lit­tle Women” for Sony, op­po­site Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, Saoirse Ro­nan, Ti­mothee Cha­la­met and Florence Pugh. “I’m pas­sion­ate and cu­ri­ous about all el­e­ments of film­mak­ing, as well as theater,” she says. “Act­ing will al­ways be my first love, but I have be­come more and more in­ter­ested in the writ­ing process. I think my one goal is to be a part of shar­ing im­por­tant sto­ries.”
