I’ve added another photo in HQ from the Vogue Australia December issue that will be out on the 23rd and a preview from the article via Daily Telegraph. The cover has also been replaced with a HQ version.
Cate Blanchett takes emerging Australian actor Ryan Corr under her wing
ACADEMY Award winner Cate Blanchett has taken emerging Australian actor Ryan Corr under her wing.
Blanchett, who struck up a friendship with the Packed to the Rafters star when he played a role in the Sydney Theatre Company’s production of Sex with Strangers, said the 26-year-old has what it takes to make it in a very fickle industry.
Blanchett, who features in the December issue of Vogue Australia, a tribute edition to her and husband Andrew Upton’s contribution to the arts in Australia, said: “Ryan’s talent and adventurous spirit are enervating to be around.
“His work ethic is inspiring but he makes it all look so easy.
“His generosity as an actor is palpable on stage and screen, and the relationships we witness him in have such chemistry as he invests his energy in connecting with, and getting under the skin of, not only the character he’s playing but actors he’s working opposite.”
When Confidential told Corr about Blanchett’s fondness for him, he was almost speechless.
“It makes me feel all giddy on the inside, she is a goddess,” he said. “That is so lovely to hear.
“Obviously Cate is a women crush of mine and a goddess on stage and incredible at what she does.”
He said he has enjoyed his time with the STC and hopes to continue to work with the respected company.
“It is a real family over there and I think they make amazing work,” he said.
“It has been wonderful to be part of that circle for a while and to be invited back is a wonderful privilege and hopefully that is a pat on the bum saying ‘you’re doing the right thing’.”
The December issue of Vogue will hit the stands on Monday, November 23.
