Abigail Breslin Chats Helen Keller

Abigail Breslin Chats Helen Keller

Abigail Breslin shows off her straight straight hair in this new shot from the February 2010 issue of Nylon mag.

The 13-year-old actress makes her Broadway debut in The Miracle Worker, an updated version of the William Gibson play. Abigail plays Helen Keller, the deaf and blind activist and author who learned to communicate with the help of her teacher, Annie Sullivan (Alison Pill).

Abigail shared, “Helen Keller is one of my heroes. When I got a call asking if I would play her, I said, ‘Heck, yes!’”

Even though she’s working on Broadway, she’s still a teen girl at heart. Which means, she’s obsessed with Twilight. “I’m a crazy, obsessed fan. I went to see the first movie on opening day. But I felt left out because everyone in the audience had Twilight t-shirts and I didn’t. So I have Twilight T-shirts now. And have you seen those Twilight water bottles? I have one of those,” she said.

Check out Abigail‘s full interview in the new issue of Nylon mag — out on stands NOW.
