Gabriella Wilde is pretty in pink in this new shot from her feature in the Summer 2013 issue of V Magazine.
The 24-year-old actress opened up about her mean girl role in Carrie, breaking into the business, and being just Gab Wilde now. Check it:
On tapping into the US movie industry: “I actually really love British and European cinema, but you have to go where the work is, and for me that’s in America. The film industry there could care less about my past.”
On being Sue Snell in Carrie: “It’s been brilliant. I find something interesting about dark characters. I mean, a trailer trash homeless girl couldn’t really be further from who I am. It can be difficult to get cast as something that is off-center from you, and my biggest fear is to be typecast.”
On shortening her stage name: “No one could say it right. It’s a mouthful, and it felt appropriate to leave it behind. I wanted to distance myself from modeling and some of the gossip press that existed around me and my family. It was easier for me to establish myself under a different identity, and I want to be doing it on my own.”
