Nicole Kidman is opening up about wanting the opportunity to use her Australian accent more in her films.
“In my next film [The Upside] I got to use my own accent again, something I want to do more of. I said, ‘I think she’d be better as an Australian’ and Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston looked at me weirdly, as the role was written as an American, but Harvey Weinstein [producer and film studio boss] said, ‘Yep, she’s Australian’,” the 50-year-old actress told the Sydney Morning Herald while attending the premiere of her latest series Top of the Lake: China Girl held at Sydney Opera House on Monday (August 1) in Sydney.
“I would like to. I love being here and being apart of this industry. I love being able to use my own accent,” Nicole added. “I got off the plane and I came to rehearsal and I just felt so at ease and relaxed and at home. We have good food, good conversation, then we rehearsed and played rigorously.”
Nicole was joined at the premiere by creator Jane Campion, as well as co-stars Alice Englert, Lincoln Vickery, Clayton Jacobson, director Ariel Kleiman and writer Gerard Lee.
