One to Watch: Angourie Rice Is Telling Her Own Origin Story

She’s yourself in a former life, the rebellious daughter navigating grief, the high school overachiever who learns to have fun—Angourie Rice is tackling archetypes left and right, all while making her way onto streaming platforms everywhere.

In 2021, the Aussie-born actress quickly turned heads her way thanks to juicy roles in HBO Max‘s Mare of Easttown (the Kate Winslet-led thriller from peak lockdown binge watching) and as Daily Bugle reporter Betty Brant in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Okay, NBD! But with back-to-back 2022 bookings like Netflix’s Senior Year with Rebel Wilson and the titular role in Honor Society (now streaming on Paramount+), alongside Gaten Matarazzo of Stranger Things, we’re seeing Angourie take a much-deserved step to center stage—and our Spidey senses tell us this is just the beginning.

Behind the scenes, she’s all-in on her craft: diving into scripts, devouring stories, and exploring new mediums (she’s a podcaster, too!) to build a foundation that will surely serve her for years to come. So to capture her icon-in-the-making essence, we brought the star-studded glam team of hairstylist Kat Thompson (don’t miss the step-by-step style breakdowns), makeup artist Katrina Klein, and wardrobe stylist Rebecca Grice to Fairfax High School to channel entertainment idols from the ‘90s to now—with Grice’s epic vintage collection to set the mood. But first, we went tête-à-tête with Angourie to get the scoop on life, style, and everything in between.

Mane Addicts: Growing up with a family in entertainment, did you always know you wanted to pursue a career in the arts?
Angourie Rice: I always wanted to do something creative, though I didn’t know what exactly. I wanted to be an author, a singer, a dancer, an astronaut at one point! Eventually, I figured that being an actor meant I could be anything.

MA: Honor Society is officially out on Paramount+…congratulations! How did you prepare for the role of Honor and her rivalry with Gaten Matarrazo’s character, Michael?
AR: Thank you so much! I’m so excited that it’s finally out there in the world. Gaten and I had a few rehearsals before we began filming, which was a great help. We spoke about the characters’ dynamic and their relationship. I’m a huge fan of Fleabag, and I found a lot of inspiration from Fleabag’s relationship with The Priest in season two. He’s the first person who really sees her—and that’s what happens with Honor and Michael, too. She feels so vulnerable around him because he sees right through her façade.

MA: It seems you’ve been initiated into American high school life through your roles in Honor Society, Senior Year, and Spider-Man: No Way Home—what was your real life high school experience like?
AR: My real life high school experience was pretty standard. It was interrupted by me traveling for work, but when I was at home, I went to my local public high school in Melbourne. It was great to make friends separate from film work.

MA: Those roles must also feel so larger-than-life compared to the heavier themes and realism of Mare of Easttown. What was it like working with such a stark contrast in subject matter?
AR: I knew Mare of Easttown was going to be a challenge, and it was. The show is dark and the characters are healing from so much trauma. But I really connected to Siobhan as a character when I first read the script, and I wanted to be a part of telling her story. What was great about Mare was that everyone was so invested in it. So even though the story was heavy, everyone’s dedication made the process comfortable.

MA: Let’s also talk about that Mare of Easttown hair! Was that chop a mutual idea between you and the makeup/hair department?
AR: It was my suggestion! In the script, Siobhan’s hair was long and auburn and shaved on one side. I’d had long hair for such a long time, I was ready for a change. I sent them pictures of Kristen Stewart’s short blonde hair, and they said they’d think about it. I thought they hadn’t gone for it, but when I showed up on my first day of pre-production, they said: “We’re cutting your hair!” That day, I came home with all my hair gone.

MA: Did it take a minute to embrace the hairstyle for yourself?
AR: Definitely. My long hair was such a big part of my femininity and sense of self. I had to reframe my own style and the way I present myself to the world. It was strange, because the short hair felt like a part of Siobhan, rather than myself. I had to take extra care to separate myself from the character and find my own style with the short hair.

MA: It looks like there are a lot of exciting projects in the works for you which probably means tons of travel…what are your must-haves for life-on-the-go?
AR: Always my journal, and a little sketchbook and pen. I like having something to write on or draw with when I’m waiting or traveling. It’s nicer than looking at my phone.

MA: You’ve been the host of The Community Library for a few years now. Can you tell us more about how it came to be and why it’s such a passion project for you?
AR: I started The Community Library when I graduated high school, because I missed reading and discussing books. I also wanted to focus on the accessibility of discussing books using critical thinking. Talking about stories is for everyone—you don’t need a degree or fancy vocabulary. All you need is some ideas, and some evidence to back it up. My hope is that The Community Library is for anyone interested in how and why we tell stories.

MA: Who is your dream guest for your podcast?
AR: I’d love to have Jacqueline Wilson on the podcast! She’s one of my favorite children’s authors and I grew up reading and loving her books.

MA: As a voracious reader, have there been any stories you’ve read that have influenced your personal style?
AR: I grew up with the Charlie and Lola books by Lauren Child—they’re children’s picture books about a little girl called Lola and her big brother Charlie. I always loved the brightly patterned collage style of the illustrations. I still love bright patterns and colors—I think that sense of fun is important to my style and how I want to present to the world.

MA: Have any characters helped you explore different facets of yourself?
AR: Yes, many! Emma Woodhouse from Jane Austen’s Emma is the first one who comes to mind. She’s a very flawed main character, but that’s what I love about her. She has a very strong arc of learning and growing, but she doesn’t completely change who she is. She holds on to the unique qualities that make her herself, while still learning from her mistakes.

MA: Are there any characters from the books you’ve read that you would love to play?
AR: Playing a Jane Austen heroine has always been a dream of mine. But I also recently read In a Lonely Place by Dorothy B. Hughes. It’s a 1947 noir crime novel set in L.A. The female lead in that book would be great to play—I love the cool demeanor of the femme fatale, but Hughes gives her much more depth.

MA: Tell us about your time as a literature student. How has that helped formulate your podcast?
AR: I took literature in my senior year of high school and loved it. It pushed me to think deeper about the media I consume, but it also taught me many practical skills, too. I learned how to write an essay very quickly! And that’s stuck with me while creating the podcast.

MA: Do you have any plans to ever write your own book one day?
AR: Maybe! I always wrote stories as a kid. It’s so much fun, but also a lot of work! A very different skill and craft to acting.

MA: Have you ever been able to have any influence over script changes for some of the characters you’ve played?
AR: I think understanding story conventions and historical storytelling patterns is very helpful in analyzing a script or a character. But I think, more than anything, creating The Community Library has taught me to ask “why”. Why is this character behaving in this way? Why is the story told this way? If the reason isn’t justifiable, then we can suggest changes. But it all starts with curiosity and an openness to listen to others.

MA: You channeled a few ‘90s icons for our One to Watch shoot—who are your personal icons (for style or whatever!) and why?
AR: Cher in Clueless is definitely a style icon for me, and I was very excited to wear some Cher-inspired looks in the photoshoot! I love how she keeps classic silhouettes, but adds fun patterns and layers. Kristen Stewart is also a fashion and hairstyle icon for me. Her personal style is so distinctive, but I think she really blends into the characters she plays, too.

MA: How would you describe your style right now? How has it evolved over the years?
AR: My current style, summed up in one word, is: “comfort”. This summer I’m wearing long dresses, denim overalls, and jumpsuits. I like anything in one piece—it’s often comfier, and I don’t have to stress about putting together a whole outfit.

MA: We’re sure working in film means there’s some limitation in what you can/can’t do hair-wise—do you ever have the urge to make a drastic change?
AR: Yes! I’ve always been blonde, so it would be cool to dye my hair a different color for a role. I also constantly want bangs, and I still miss my short hair. Every time I start a new job, I beg them to do something different with my hair.

MA: What (or who) inspires you?
AR: I’m inspired by the books I read, the movies I watch, and the people I love. My friends and family constantly inspire me to be curious, open-minded, and to take care of myself and others.

MA: And because we obviously need to know, how do you keep your signature blonde so vibrant?
AR: This is a very annoying answer, but most of it is my natural hair color! Sometimes the hair department adds highlights for a role. But then I just let it grow out. I leave it to do its own thing.

MA: Finally…describe your perfect day off.
AR: Pancakes and tea outside on a sunny day, reading a book, and seeing friends in the afternoon.

The Hollywood Reporter Interview

Angourie Rice on Her ‘No Way Home’ Easter Egg and “Heartbreaking” ‘Mare of Easttown’ Scene

The actor, known as Spider-Man classmate Betty Brant, stepped into her most adult role yet with the acclaimed HBO series this year.

Angourie Rice began 2021 on HBO’s Mare of Easttown, one of the most critically acclaimed shows of the year, and then she closed out the year with a cameo in the pandemic era’s biggest blockbuster, Spider-Man: No Way Home. As a native Australian, Rice was grateful to be able to shoot Mare and No Way Home during the same trip to the States since each journey home, at the time, required a two-week hotel quarantine. Rice has played Midtown High newscaster Betty Brant throughout the Tom Holland-led Spider-Man trilogy, and as of No Way Home, her character is an intern for J. Jonah Jameson’s The Daily Bugle. She even helped promote the movie in character via the Daily Bugle‘s official TikTok account, which she shot remotely in Australia.

While she only appeared in one sequence of No Way Home, Rice got to carry on the rich tradition of saying, “Go get ’em, tiger,” which is a callback to what Mary Jane “MJ” Watson called Peter Parker in the 1960s Spider-Man comics. It’s also a reference to the concluding line that Rice’s The Beguiled castmate Kirsten Dunst said in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2. Even Rice herself didn’t catch the Easter egg until after the fact.

Rice tells The Hollywood Reporter: “I didn’t pick up on it, but I love that! There are always so many Easter eggs, and sometimes I miss them until I actually see the film in cinemas. And then I’m like, ‘Ohh! I see what they did there.’”

Rice is also looking back at her most grown-up role to date as Mare of Easttown‘s Siobhan Sheehan, the daughter of Kate Winslet’s Mare Sheehan and granddaughter of Jean Smart’s Helen. While working with Winslet and Smart, Rice realized that commitment and kindness are not mutually exclusive.

“Kate and Jean have been working in this industry for a long time and really know what’s up,” Rice shares. “They know how to do their jobs really well while still being kind and open. When you work with people who are professional and committed to their roles — but can also have a really nice conversation with you when they call cut — that’s a really special quality. So I loved watching them work. They’re just incredible.”

In a recent conversation with THR, Angourie Rice (pronounced “Ann-gourie,” like “floury”) also explains why she had to wear a wig during her No Way Home scene. Then she discusses how the pandemic changed the musical side of Siobhan’s role on Mare of Easttown.

Elle Australia Interview

Australian Actor Angourie Rice Has Worked With Tom Holland & Zendaya On Three Films—She Has One Thing To Say About Them

Angourie Rice is wise beyond her years—that much is clear no matter if you’ve seen her on-screen or met her in real life.

The 20-year-old actor first broke into Hollywood when she was just 15-years-old, scoring a role in the 2015 film The Nice Guys alongside Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling.
Barely a year later, she secured the role of a lifetime in the Spiderman franchise, playing Betty Brant alongside Tom Holland’s Peter Parker and Zendaya’s MJ.
Born in Sydney (and named after the New South Wales town where her grandmother lived) Rice had always had an interest in being on the big screen. Her father, Jeremy Rice is a director and her mother, Kate Rice is a writer. The family moved her to Melbourne at a young age, then to Perth, then back to Melbourne where she currently resides (when she’s not filming in various locations across the world, that is).
From Australia to Hollywood, Rice’s whirlwind journey of success is nothing short of astounding, but Angourie couldn’t be more humble.
ELLE spoke to the actor ahead of the release of Spiderman: No Way Home—her third appearance in the cult Marvel franchise.
“I was 15 when we filmed the first one, I feel like I’ve grown with Betty—I’ve grown with her. We’ve had parallels in our lives as I’ve filmed it,” she explains.

Of course, the film has been globally hyped not just among the comic book fanbase, but also among die-hard fans of Zendaya and Tom Holland, who are dating in real life.
But Rice reveals that despite their global fame, the pair are sweet as ever in a professional setting—something she, as an actor herself, truly admires.
“When I did the first film, [Holland and Zendaya] were like three or four years older than me. I really looked up to them and I still look up to them,” Rice explains.
“They were young actors at the top of their games and they were just really professional and really kind. That’s been such a wonderful thing.
“You always want to work with people like that—people who are really good at what they do and are dedicated to their craft so passionate about filmmaking, and they’re kind and considerate—Tom and Zendaya definitely are. That makes them a joy to work with.”

Given the most recent Spiderman films are based around Peter Parker’s high school experience, most of the ensemble cast is made of up younger people—something Rice was particularly grateful to be a part of.
“When you’re working with a young cast, it’s just like a bunch of kids and having fun.
“On the second film [Spiderman: Far From Home] we felt that a lot because we were traveling and filming in different locations across Europe—that had an impact on the dynamic we had. it felt like a school trip all of us together!”
“That is always one of my favourite things about working with the Spiderman cast. We just have a lot of fun together, and because I’m one of the youngest, I’ve always looked up to everyone in that cast.”

As we continue chatting to Rice in our interview, it becomes clear that she’s just as bewildered with her success now as she was at the start of her career.
It makes us wonder—how has she dealt with the challenges that undoubtedly come for someone trying to make it in Hollywood?
“One of the main challenges—and this goes for any actor you’d ask—is dealing with rejection. Every actor faces rejection,” she explains.
“You’d be surprised—for every role I get, there are 150 positions I didn’t get. It’s a lot, and it takes a toll.”
However, in more proof the 20-year-old is wise as ever, she says she learned to accept that this part of the industry is something that simply cannot be controlled.
“It could be your looks, or your energy, or your age, or your location. That lack of control in why you might not get [a role] has been a huge challenge for me… but I’ve learned to try and let go of that control. A lot of the reason why I might not get a job is has nothing to do with things I can change or work on.”

Before we leave her, we have one more pressing question for Rice—any and every detail she had on working with mega star Ryan Gosling.
Laughing, she replies: “It was such a crazy experience—I had done one Australian film before [The Nice Guys]. This was unlike anything I’d ever done before.”
She adds of Gosling: “I think Ryan is a very good improviser and comedian—what I learned from him in particular is that he has this incredible ability to see everything fresh and he brings new energy to things—it would be different and exciting. Just watching him work is amazing.”
She no doubt learned a lot from the experience. Along with Spiderman, Rice worked on the hit HBO drama, Mare Of Easttown, as well as Australian film, Ladies In Black.
Her next big film, Senior Year will star screen legends Rebel Wilson, Justin Hartley and Alicia Silverstone, to name a few.
There’s no denying this is just the beginning for Rice—and her infectious attitude and positivity is only going to bring her bigger and better things. Watch this space…
