Surrounded by the likes of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, the star of Alice in Wonderland didn’t get a chance to say much. Mia Wasikowska plays the film’s title character. She is just the right age to have grown up on all of Burton’s films.

Mia Wasikowska is Alice in Wonderland

“I mean, I’ve loved his films for such a long time so then the coolest part was actually seeing from the beginnings,” Wasikowska said. “I always just see the end of things so just to see the whole process was really amazing. Also just Tim’s a really trusting director so from the minute that he casts you, you just know you have a lot of trust and freedom.”

Of course, she also knew the Lewis Caroll books. Alice in Wonderland is not a shot for shot adaptation of the book, but rather a re-imagining of it from an adult perspective. “I read the books when I was about 8 or 9 and then I read them again before we started filming and saw it as an older person, saw a whole other side that I didn’t really catch as a kid. I think it’s amazing because it kind of constantly reveals itself to you in different ways. I’m sure as a kid I saw something else that I didn’t get as an adult, and there were parts that I would have liked as a kid that I didn’t miss as an older person.”

Alice in Wonderland is out in theaters now.
