Kate Mara


  1. Christina Ricci, Speed Racer, 2007.     Also on the grid for the racing hero’s gal, Trixie - complete with pink helicopter … shades of Lady Penelope… or Reese Witherspoon - were Elisha Cuthbert, Rose McGowan, Kate Mara. Speed, himself, kept changing from Johnny Depp and Zac Efron to Shia Labeouf and Joseph Gordon-Levitt… and, finally, Emile Hirsch, a long time fan of the 1967-1968 Japanese anime series series.
  2. Nikki Reed, Catch .44, 2011.  It seems that Mara and Lizzy Caplan were the only stars who read Aaron Harvey’s script and dropped it for the Tarantino-wannabe it was.  Bruce Willis starred (well, he headed the cast) and Forest Whitaker, as a Cuban, took us through his private collection of accents.  But not until the mess was released. Or escaped. In 2011.
  3. Anne Hathaway, The Dark Knight Rises, 2011.
  4. Scarlett Johansson, Hitchcock, 2012.      Hitchcock’s back in business!   With two films headlined  by UK actors (Anthony Hopkins, Toby Jones) in bad impressions and fat suits. This is the second  one - Hopkins making Psycho. And telling Janet Leigh: “You can call me Hitch. Hold the cock”…
  5. Jessica Biel, Hitchcock, 2012.     …As  Janet Leigh was just two years older than  the dowdier Vera Miles, most actresses were up for either role:  Mara, Diana Agron, Camilla Belle, Abby Cornish, Emilie de Ravin, Natalie Dormer, Sarah Gadon, Ashley Greene, January Jones, Brit Marling, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chloe Sevigny, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Evan Rachel Wood.
  6. Olga Kurylenko, Oblivion, 2012.       Jessica Chastain (the new Meryl Streep) was  #1 target for almost every Hollywood feature. That was the problem.  Too many schedules not gelling.  She quit and Olga, who had tested before her, took over.  (Also losing Julia -  and working with Tom Cruise - wereBrit Marling, Noomi Rapace. Olivia Wilde, Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
  7. Mireille Enos, Sabotage, 2013.       Mara and Isla Fisher were beaten  by Malin Akerman who  then she fell pregnant and Enos,  The Killing TV find, took over as Lucy, one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s DEA unit (young Expendables) in the ex-California Governor’s weak comeback.
  8. Abbie Cornish, RoboCop, 2013.     Jessica Alba, Keri Russell also auditioned and  Rebecca Hall  passed on being the Mrs Robo-reboot who, as Rolling Stone critic Peter Travers put it, intuits that her husband’s heart is still in the right place.
  9. Sienna Miller, American Sniper, 2014.     For what proved his biggest box-office success (at 84!), director Clint Eastwood looked at Mara, Jamie Alexander and  Evangeline Lilly for Tara, the wife of his real-life Navy Seal hero Chris Kyle, before settling on Miller.  Tara felt Sandra Bullock would be better than a Brit, before getting to know Miller in numerous Skype calls.   Mara preferred joining the 2014 reboot of (gulp!)  Fantastic Four
  10. Haley Bennett, The Girl on the Train, 2015.     Mara (and her sister Rooney), Haley Bennett and Margot Robbie were also in the frame for Megan. All lucky to miss the messy Hitchcock wannabe - never came close.

  11. Felicity Jones, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, 2015.    For the first time we hear how George Lucas wrote it in 1976: "May the Force of others be with you."   Also in the running for Jyn Erso, new heroine of of Disney’s stand-aloneStar Wars movies,  were the Canadian Tatiana Maslany  and the Mara sisters  - Kate and Rooney.  Jones (who I’d listened to for years in the world's longest running radio soap, The Archers, on BBC Radio 4, was born in1983, the year Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi was released.
