Rowan Blanchard Wants to Make More Weird Movies

Rowan Blanchard Wants to Make More Weird Movies

Rowan Blanchard looks stunning on C Magazine‘s September issue, available August 28th.

The 16-year-old actress opened up about her acting future, her next book and activism. Check it:

On what she wants to do in the future: “Hopefully I get to make more weird movies. I just want to write more things and act in more things and make things that I think are worth making. So much of the culture is to put things out and not take your time. I’ve been thinking about this quote by Solange where she says she doesn’t put things out until they’re finished. I’m sitting with that quote this summer and thinking about what I can make. And I’m not going to release it into the world until it’s finished.”

On what she wants to achieve with her voice: “I still toy a lot with whatever it means to call myself an activist or an artist or someone who just likes words, and I guess at the end of the day, I’m just a person who thinks a lot, and sometimes it feels like I can compile those thoughts enough to share them with others. For me, the thing I really want to achieve by using my voice is to have more of a conversation. For now, I want to listen more and not speak as much, and maybe speak when I feel like what I have to say hasn’t been said, or it’s important for me to say it. There’s this sort of construed thing online that anyone who has a platform has to speak on everything.

On writing another book: “The book came out in February, and I still feel like so much has happened to me personally since then. So much of your teenhood is about dreaming about what it’s going to be like…and I’m finally hitting the point where I feel like I’m living the movie [moments] and having all these glimpses—like, oh, that’s like Heathers! At some point, when I’m able to get a bit of distance from it, I will sit and write. But right now, it feels like everything is happening so quickly and so in the moment that if I stop to write about it, I’ll miss it.”
