Interstellar's Mackenzie Foy Is Setting Her Sights on Directing

Mackenzie Foy may still only be 13, but that’s not stopping her from dreaming big.

The Interstellar actress spoke with W magazine about her plans to get into directing: “Working with Mr. Bill Condon inspired me to want to be a director.”

She added, “I want to go to film college to learn about the departments and how everything works. Then I’m going to start directing.”

Mackenzie also spoke on connecting with Jessica Chastain on connecting their shared character: “We discussed the character and how to do certain things, like put a pencil in our bun, little things with her hands, what we would do with our mouth, how to act like Mr. Matthew [McConaughey], to make the character more real.”
