Mia Wasikowska

Age: 19

Years on List: 2009

What She’s Done: Hailing from the land Down Under, she had a breakthrough role in the HBO series ‘In Treatment.’

What’s Next: This fall she’ll play rival pilot to Hilary Swank’s ‘Amelia’ (Earhart). Then it’s the title, potentially star-making role in Tim Burton’s highly anticipated ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ alongside Johnny Depp, and as the child of a lesbian couple in the comedy ‘The Kids Are All Right.’

Industry Buzz: She won’t be known as Mia Whatshername much longer, since this ballet dancer-turned-actress is destined to break out in a big way. She’s already displayed terrific acting chops in HBO’s ‘In Treatment’ and opposite Daniel Craig in ‘Defiance,’ but now she’ll really make her name — with upcoming roles in ‘Amelia,’ ‘The Kids Are All Right’ and, of course, as Alice in Tim Burton’s fantastical ‘Alice in Wonderland’ update. Those looking for a new nickname might want to try Mia WOWsikowska.

Tim Burton’s take on the classic children’s book Alice in Wonderland is “a bit of an experiment”, he has revealed.

The director is in the process of putting together an expensive, 3-D version of Lewis Carroll’s famous novel, starring Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter.

Burton has promised his version will be very different from any other adaptation of the book.

“The goal on this was to try to ground it, make it more of a story, so you’re following a girl who is working things out. emotionally, in her own mind.” he explained. “I wanted to try to ground it a bit more and make it more of a movie and story so it’s not just a series of wierd events.”

Weird is something Burton does very well but with this film he had to get a bigger grasp on technology as he blends live action with animation and computer graphics. The director said he is not afraid to take risks although admitted the film studio, Disney, may not be impressed to hear they are “experimenting” with the big budget production.

“It’s a bit of an experiment that we hope will work out,” Burton laughed. But it’s fun. Look, that’s what makes movies exciting, when you don’t quite know what you’re going to get, you try to get there. And it keeps you scared and excited.”

Burton said he found the technology to be both a friend and foe.

“It’s frustrating,” Burton said. “You like to build sets and have actors. You know, there’s something about that process that feels more grounded. But, it’s new for me and I’m trying to deal with the frustration without too much medication. There’s an element of not knowing, which keeps me up at night,” he continued, “but I’m excited.”

‘Alice in Wonderland’ is set for release in March 2010
