Two-time Oscar nominee Rooney Mara is no stranger to challenging roles. From The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’s Lisbeth Salander to Carol’s Therese Belivet, the actress certainly doesn’t shirk intensity.
Her latest projects are no different. The actress starred in three films at the Toronto International Film Festival: emotionally charged true story Lion, harrowing abuse drama Una and affecting romance The Secret Scripture.
As the well-received Lion gets its European premiere at Zurich Film Festival this week, the actress is currently preparing to star in prestige biopic Mary Magdalene opposite Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus.
