Variety’s 10 Actors to Watch for 2021

Angourie Rice
“Mare of Eastown,” “Spider-Man: No Way Home”

Marvel fans recognize the versatile Australian actor as Peter Parker’s classmate Betty Brant in the “Spider-Man” movies, but her star really took off with HBO’s watercooler series “Mare of Easttown,” in which she went toe to toe with such heavyweights as Kate Winslet and Jean Smart.

On “Mare of Easttown,” Rice’s Siobhan had to juggle her brother’s suicide, her family’s trauma, helping to raise her nephew and still navigate high school, her own budding sexuality and desire to leave the Philadelphia suburbs for a university across the country. It’s a lot. “I really connected with the fact that she says she’s in pain but she has been put in this position of having to be an adult. She kind of has to play peacemaker between her parents and her mom and her grandmother, while she’s trying to figure out who she is and who she wants to be.”

Next up for Rice is comedy “Senior Year” with fellow Aussie Rebel Wilson. She adds that she’s a movie lover and a consummate reader but with “Senior Year,” “I was actually really excited to do comedy” after being in that tense, sad world of “Mare.” She’d love to collaborate with Greta Gerwig, and between working a lot and being grounded in Australia because of COVID, “you never know what’s going to happen. Really, I’m living day to day, moment to moment, just trying to let go of the crippling sense of needing to control my future.” — Carole Horst

Influences: Her parents and sister, Lorde, the painter Paula Modersohn-Becker

Reps: Agency: WME; Management: Catherine Poulton Management (Australia); Legal: Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern
