Your ultimate source for Vanessa Kirby

As we all know, Vanessa has highly promoted the work of War Child, for that, a new Harpers Bazaar UK  article has been released to promote its work during this pandemic/ coronavirus time.

To help promote the brand and raise awareness/ money, there are two competitions you can enter where you can interact with Vanessa:

  • If you’re a fan of The Crown, there’s an exclusive chance to bid for a royal tea with both Princess Margarets, as the wonderful Helena Bonham Carter kindly agreed to join forces with me for this one-off experience
  • For those who want a more active adventure, check back in after 11 August where there’ll be an exclusive experience related to the Mission Impossible films.

 

The coronavirus pandemic has been a frightening and uncertain time for so many of us. It has been truly overwhelming to see the resilience and dedication of NHS staff and key workers. My heart and mind also immediately went to the impact this would have on children living in conflict.

As an ambassador for the children’s charity War Child, I’ve seen first-hand what life is like for families struggling with the consequences of war. War zones are already one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a child, but coronavirus is making life even harder.

For families living in refugee camps or other war-affected communities, the impact of the virus has been catastrophic. Cramped conditions make social-distancing nearly impossible– and poor sanitation means there is very limited ability to do frequent hand-washing. As the restrictions are easing across parts of Europe, the numbers of cases are rising steadily among many of the poorer parts of the world. But because so many of these countries have such limited ability to test, the numbers being reported are far lower than the reality on the ground

We couldn’t be more thrilled that Vanessa has two movies to be presented in Venice Film Festival which will start on September 12th. The lineup includes The World To Come, dir: Mona Fastvold and Pieces Of A Woman, dir: Kornel.

The English actress’ major Hollywood appearances have included ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ and ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.’
English actress Vanessa Kirby got a double dose of love from the Venice Film Festival. She stars in two films picked for this year’s Venice competition lineup, which organizers unveiled Tuesday morning.

Best known for portraying Princess Margaret alongside Claire Foy’s Queen Elizabeth in the first two seasons of Netflix hit drama The Crown, a role for which she earned a BAFTA best supporting actress TV award and an Emmy nomination, Kirby has become one of the U.K.’s top emerging stars.

Major Hollywood appearances have included Mission: Impossible – Fallout, in which she played a deadly arms dealer alongside Tom Cruise, and last year’s Fast & Furious spin-off Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, in which she portrayed an MI6 agent. She is due to reprise her Mission: Impossible role in the seventh installment, which had been shooting in Europe prior to the novel coronavirus pandemic and is now set for release in November 2021.

Kirby’s Venice movies are director Mona Fastvold’s The World to Come and Kornél Mundruczó’s Pieces of a Woman.

The World to Come, which also stars Casey Affleck, Katherine Waterston and Christopher Abbott, is about two neighboring couples battling the hardship of life on the frontier in 19th century America.

Pieces of a Woman is the story of a woman embarks on an emotional journey after the loss of her baby. The film also stars Shia LaBeouf and Ellen Burstyn.

Actor Vanessa Kirby tells Fergus Morgan about the culture she has been enjoying in lockdown, from listening to Elizabeth Day’s How to Fail podcast to rewatching John Cassavetes’ films with her housemates.

Last year marked a decade since Vanessa Kirby graduated from University of Exeter and turned down a place at LAMDA in favour of a three-play stint at Bolton’s Octagon Theatre. In that time, she has successfully juggled both stage and screen, from A Streetcar Named Desire at London’s Young Vic and playing Princess Margaret in Netflix series The Crown, to Uncle Vanya at the Almeida Theatre and the latest Mission Impossible film.

“At the beginning, I found it strange and difficult,” she says of her life under lockdown. “But I have gradually come to accept it as the days go on. The imagination actually grows the most in silence and stillness, and I don’t think I truly knew that until now. I live with my sister and two friends, so we’ve had a community feel, which is lucky. We’ve found that sticking to a routine is key.”
