I’ve uploaded screen captures of Rebecca from her role as Antoinette Cosway in the BBC adaptation of Wide Sargasso Sea. In one of her first leading screen roles, Rebecca gives an incredible performance–it’s easy to see why her career began to flourish shortly after. Be sure to take a look.

HUNGER – Rebecca Hall’s decision to drop out of university in her final year to pursue acting may have been a risky one, but the gamble has certainly paid off. Although, with Sir Peter Hall, founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and opera singer Maria Ewing as parents, perhaps it wasn’t really that much of a gamble – the stage seems to be in her blood.

In 2008, following a number of theatre roles, and smaller parts in Starter for 10 and The Prestige, Hollywood came knocking and she landed the part of good girl Vicky in Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona, for which she picked up a Golden Globe nomination. Then came Frost/Nixon, The Town and The Awakening, and her BAFTA-winning portrayal of a traumatised mother in Red Riding: In The Year of Our Lord 1974. And last year Rebecca proved that she can also tackle blockbusters when she took on brainy biologist Maya Hansen in Iron Man 3. With a starring role opposite Johnny Depp this year, it looks like she should get used to having Hollywood at her door.

REBECCA, YOUR DAD IS BRITISH AND YOUR MUM IS AMERICAN, DO YOU IDENTIFY WITH ONE CULTURE MORE THAN THE OTHER?

I identify more with British culture because I grew up here, and I went to school and university here. I’m a Londoner and I always have been. It doesn’t mean I’m not very at home in American culture, though. I have an understanding of it, and there’s a part of me that feels fairly American when I go there, but I feel home is home and that’s London.

Empire recently caught up with Rebecca to discuss the movies that have impacted her life. It’s a great read–be sure to take a look if you haven’t already.

What was the first movie you ever saw?
The one I remember watching a lot when I was tiny is probably The Wizard Of Oz. My mum’s American and she raised me on the Golden Age of Hollywood. I didn’t watch TV or a lot of films that were of my time..

What was the movie that inspired you to go into films?
When I was eight, nine, ten years old I was obsessed with All About Eve. It’s a film about theatre people, so I suppose it inspired me to act. And I just thought Bette Davis was incredibly… cool (laughs). I think it was something about her combination of larger-than-life campery and a raw humanity that doesn’t have any vanity, really. That’s what interested me about film: the capacity to do great glamour and something that can be very ugly and very true at the same time.

What was the last movie you saw that reminded you of your childhood?
Kind Hearts And Coronets. Not that it reminds me of my childhood, but it reminds me of sitting with my dad (Peter Hall) and him saying, “You should watch this because it’s a great film.” I just thought, “This is a crazy film and it’s brilliant!” It’s still one of my favourites.

What was the last movie that made you cry with laughter?
[Jackass Presents:] Bad Grandpa. I saw it a couple of days ago and I did weep a little. Especially the bit where he’s lying on that bed that he’s trying to sell at a junk sale and it starts folding him in two… I thought I was gonna be sick I was laughing so hard.

What was the last movie that made you fight back the tears?
Blue Is The Warmest Colour. I loved it.

I have added some behind the scenes photos of Rebecca from her role in the upcoming short film, Ruminate to the gallery. Hopefully it will be available to watch very soon! Many thanks to Dog Eared Films for the images.

To ruminate means to think; to chew thoughts over and over, focusing on symptoms of distress… their causes, and their consequences. Gemma is in her mid-thirties: She is a childless woman, not in a serious relationship, who lives in the big city of London, primarily concentrating on work and survival. The years have slipped by and the things that appear to have fallen into place for her friends and peers still elude her. This film follows her over two days. We never hear her speak. We never learn her thoughts. Instead the audience witnesses a series of events that make us question her happiness culminating in a visit to her gynecologist. It is revealed that she has possible cancerous cells that may have to be removed, and this could affect her ability to bear children. Just when Gemma is at her most vulnerable, her best friend offers one single, simple truth: All you can do, is be the best you you can be.
