Child star of ‘Beasts’ back in bayou
Question of the Day
The pair landed parts this summer in the Steve McQueen-directed film “Twelve Years a Slave,” which was being shot in Louisiana. Starring Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender, the movie centers on the true story of a free man who was captured and sold into slavery in the mid-1800s,
Though they didn’t share scenes with each other, the “Beasts” co-stars say they enjoyed getting in front of the camera again.
Quvenzhane said the set was more serious than in “Beasts,” where she was free to run and play between takes. But she was up for the challenge: “I’m 9 now, and 9-year-olds are like kind of serious but don’t play much,” she said.
Quvenzhane says she would like to be a dentist “to see people smile,” but won’t be giving up acting, which so far has given her plenty to smile about as the honors for her and “Beasts” just keep coming.
But whether she or the film will be nominated for an Academy Award, “that’s not in my head,” she said.
