Elizabeth Takes Part in Women for Women UK Short Film

Wednesday, Sep 27, 2017

Yesterday, a short film video was posted by the charity organisation Women for Women International that features Elizabeth, as well as the patron Dame Helen Mirren, Emma Grede, Jude Wanga, Hikari Yokoyama and Brita Fernandez Schmidt. The video asks the question, ‘What is Sisterhood?‘ This is in reference to celebrating the power of sisterhood and women standing with each other.

The ‘Women for Women International‘ charity is an organisation that strives to empower women to reach their full potential and also help survivors of conflicts to rebuild their lives.

In the video, Elizabeth states her answers:

‘It’s a shared feeling… It’s a powerful bond… True connection…It’s a safe haven’

You can watch the video below and I have also added screencaptures to the gallery.

Elizabeth Covers Marie Claire January 2017

Saturday, Dec 3, 2016

As a special issue of the magazine dedicated to hair, Elizabeth covers next years first issue and also has an interview and beautiful photoshoot featured inside. Below is a snippet:

…Elizabeth’s Debicki’s turn as Jed in the BBC One drama attracted six million viewers per episode. In the interview, Debicki discussed being directed by a woman [Susanne Bier]: ‘Would I have played the same character had a man been directing me? I don’t know. Susanne was able to understand and embrace the femininity of the female characters and not objectify them, and that’s why women responded to the show as well. Is a man capable of that? Yes, of course. I can’t walk around and say, “I would rather be directed by a woman,” because that’s not the case. For me, it’s about the person – and their sensitivity and intelligence – it’s not about gender. But, the amount of women who are directing TV and film is disproportionate, and it has to change.’

You can find the magazine scans and photoshoot images in the gallery.

Elizabeth Interviewed By The Guardian

Sunday, Oct 9, 2016

  

Elizabeth recently did an interview with The Guardian newspaper, which also included a photoshoot. I have added the images to the gallery, and below is a snippet of the interview.

number of competing bars have been built into the outer bulwark of the National Theatre in London, and when she emerges from rehearsals one night in September the Australian actor Elizabeth Debicki – animated, adamant, 6ft 3in – hesitates. Which bar? We circle the building together, scouting options, dismissing one place for being too quiet, another too busy. Debicki has heard a rumour about a secret actors’ drinking den hidden deep within the theatre complex. Finally, we wind up back at the quiet place, where she orders a glass of red wine. “I love that in England the choice is only ever ‘medium’ or ‘large’,” the 26-year-old says, taking a swig. Then again, she adds, who is she to talk. “In Australia, we fill swimming pools with this stuff.”

Chatting at the bar, I can understand why, whenever Debicki does a job (playing a warlord’s mistress in The Night Manager, opposite Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston, a party girl in Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 adaptation of The Great Gatsby, or an alien in the upcoming superhero sequel, Guardians Of The Galaxy) she is affectionately known as “Debicki” on set. “My first name never lasts longer than five minutes.” There is an unstuffy and clownish energy to this actor, who doesn’t like to let a sentence rest if there’s a quip to be added and who, when she talks, waves her hands about as if she’s drowning. She chews gum and fiddles constantly with her short, bleached hair, now tugging it upright, now flattening it sideways. Her exuberance might be amplified by the fact that she’s only just been let loose from a rehearsal room after nine hours’ work on a new play, but Debicki says she’s always had “an ingrained intensity, a little bit of madness”, and she puts this down to her ancestry: Polish on her father’s side, Irish on her mother’s. When I ask about the most tiring part of rehearsing, Debicki flattens her hair to one side and says, “It’s a David Hare play. The words.”

There’s not a lot more she can say about the production, she says, beyond the fact that it’s called The Red Barn, is set in 1960s New England and co-stars Mark Strong – a “psychological thriller with Hitchcockian elements”. I ask if she can give me a little preview of her New England accent. “No. Noooo. No way.” The hair gets dragged into clown-like puffs. “No.” Debicki has signed a number of non-disclosure agreements recently, she explains, mostly related to her work on Guardians Of The Galaxy, and this has made her paranoid about saying anything about anything. “You start to worry there are snipers on the tops of nearby buildings.”
