Mackenzie was featuring in Glamour Spain, I’ve translated the Interview. Thanks to Katie for the Scans.
Seven years after playing the charismatic daughter of the Cullens, the actress becomes Disney Princess, her first leading role in a remake of the Nutcracker. Moving ahead of the sweetest trend of the season, we spoke with her exclusively in Los Angeles, her home.
Melrose Place blooms in summer with tourists, luxury stores are flirtatious in front of newcomers and the coffee shop are flooded with foreign accents. In one of the adjacent streets, far from glances and curious, I meet Mackenzie at Alfred’s Tea and Coffee. The appointment is early, at ten, and although I try to move forward, she is already there when I arrive. Foy is accompanied by her mother and the two, timid, welcome me. It is curious to see a teenager like Mackenzie, about to release one of the autumn blockbusters, dressed so innocent, so casual, so desperately trying to go unnoticed. We sat at the table furthest away from the tumult. His mother remains in another, close, attentive to each response, educated in the distance. Foy is cordial, sparse in words, mysterious, yet unconnected to success and fame with a slightly exaggerated innocence for a city like Los Angeles, where the auditions strengthen the actors . At another table, a young woman about thirteen years old does not stop looking at her, she strategically sits down to listen with admiration to every word. Tactically discreet, the interview becomes the object of curiosity of the few trausers, the mother of the artist and the fan. A fun meeting.
Few will remember the debut of Mackenzie Foy in the cinema when it was released as Renesmee Cullen, the daughter of Edward and Bella in the Twilight saga. Since then, this promise of cinema has been climbing its place, strengthening its reputation until getting The Nutcracker and The Four Realms with Keira Knightley and Helen Mirren. Model of Chanel and the next princess of Disney, Mackenzie Foy allowed us to enter her universe, pose for Glamour exclusively and remind us why she is destined to be a great star in Hollywood.
Glamour: How was the photo session with Glamor?
Mackenzie: It was really fun to do it. I had the opportunity to put on fantastic clothes. It’s one of my first shoots promoting the movie. I’m excited about the premiere of Nutcracker, wanting to share the film with everyone. It is a very exciting time in my life.
Glamour: Is your first character protagonist?
Mackenzie: Yes, it was a long process to get the character. First I sent a recorded tape that I made and then I was summoned to London for a test already with costumes and makeup. I was super nervous. Afterwards, I participated again in an audition through Skype and then another test. It was exhausting, but I got it.
Glamour: What does it mean for you to work with Keira Knightley and Helen Mirren?
Mackenzie: They’re wonderful. Really lovely ladies. I liked acting with them and living within the reality of the story at their side. I learned a lot from both.
Glamour: I read that the director counted on your opinion to mold Clara.
Mackenzie: Yes. I collaborated with the director to create Clara’s personality and its peculiarities. I wanted us to work together to investigate the character’s story: his past, his present and his future.
Glamour: Do you distinguish the elements of your personality that you share with Clara?
Mackenzie: Yes, No doubt your passion for adventure and your creativity.
Glamour: Does your character have something of Alice in Wonderland?
Mackenzie: Both share the same wavelength, but honestly, I think Clara is a unique character and the story too.
Glamour: Did you always want to become a Disney princess?
Mackenzie: I’m a big Disney fan. All my family lives obsessed with Disney and participating in a film of this company makes me feel very proud.
Glamour: How do you adapt the idea of a Disney princess to the present?
Mackenzie: Clara is a strong woman and it is wonderful to interpret her in the times we live. Showing the strength of youth in these moments is really important, we can all get what we want if we listen to our hearts.
Glamor: Do you feel like her, looking for your place?
Mackenzie: It’s being a great adventure. I started posing for small catalogs and, little by little, I have evolved. I feel inside a very crazy, wonderful dream. I’ve always wanted to be an actress, to succeed. My heart is in the cinema. It’s something I love and love since childhood.
Glamour: What else do you enjoy about being an actress?
Mackenzie: The fact that I can be anything, transform myself into another person, travel to different worlds. I can even save the world. Those experiences, all together, you can only get them by acting. Also, I like to create and share stories.
Glamour: What is your relationship with social networks?
Mackenzie: They have always been present in my life and I try to use them being authentic and not letting myself be deceived. I never forget that. If you keep a routine, things work.
Glamour: What did you feel when Chanel called you and invited you to his parades?
Mackenzie: My God! It was sensational. The best moment of my life. I met Ellie, who also appears in the movie. It was my third catwalk, but everything seemed new to me. The energy of the show was amazing, very exciting, elegant and fun. I loved. In addition, I learned a lot from the history of the firm. I did not know much of the details.
Glamour: Is it important for you to finish your studies?
Mackenzie: Yes. I still have one more year left at school and then I would like to direct. It is something that makes me very excited. I want to learn and learn. The reason why I have not started is because I want to concentrate on my studies, give them the necessary attention and then continue my career. I’ve been reading scripts and books to adapt and create a script, but I have not started yet.
Glamour: Do you usually seek the advice of the directors with whom you work?
Mackenzie: All the time. In the shootings I am forced to split between classes and filming, so I do not have much time. But, sometimes, I sit down with the filmmakers to explain their work to me. I like to learn by their side, to tell me what they think, the movies they like or how they learned their trade.
Glamour: Is it easy to go to school being famous?
Mackenzie: At school everyone knows me as Kenzie and my friends are a big part of my life. They are lovely and have accompanied me since I was a child.
Glamour: Do you ignore the fact of having fans and being famous?
Mackenzie: No. What happens is that I do not consider myself famous, my followers are adorable, sweet and fun. I have come to know some of them, I share photos with them and I have a direct relationship. I like to be close to my followers.
Glamour: Does fame scare you?
Mackenzie: Actually, I’ve never thought about her. I was very young when I shot Twilight and I never thought it would be. I like being an actress for what she represents, for telling stories, not for being famous or achieving success.
Glamour: You were born and grew up in L.A.
Mackenzie: Yes, it’s a great city, fun, but terribly hot, especially in summer. Here is a contagious creativity. I enjoy reading in the coffee shop, right now I am obsessed with that and spend the evenings with my friends in bookstores with coffee. My favorite is The Last Bookstore in Downtown.
Glamor: What else do you like to do to entertain yourself?
Mackenzie: I do taekwondo with my friends, we are a group that we have grown practically and it is very fun. Thanks to my classes I have learned Korean.
Glamour: How long have you been in the discipline?
Mackenzie: About ten years, I’ve already got my black belt. I love. It is an important part of my life. I take classes for one hour or an hour and a half five days a week, they are my second family. I have learned to keep my body and mind in sync, something that helps me in my interpretation especially in the action scenes. It takes a lot of resistance to endure them.
Glamour: Your parents protect you very much.
Mackenzie: I have great parents, they have their feet on the ground and they are very calm. My mother comes with me where I am going.
Glamour: Are you becoming an instagram figure?
Mackenzie: I like to write post that makes me laugh, like what I upload with my dog. Anything that makes me happy and that I think people will like.
It wasn’t 17-year-old Mackenzie Foy’s first time at a fashion show this past Couture season. In season’s past, she’d seen Saint Laurent and an Erdem for H&M show. Not bad for your first three big fashion moments. Albeit her third, this show, though, was arguably her most important to date.
Foy, who plays the role of Clara in the upcoming The Nutcracker and the Five Realms, joined the ranks of Hollywood greats like Penelope Cruz, Tracee Ellis Ross, and her former Twilight co-star, Kristen Stewart, when she was invited to go to her very first Chanel show.
The experience, she told me over the phone, was fully emmersive and more than just “a show.”
“I got to learn a ton of stuff from the history of Chanel,” Foy tells InStyle. “Everything they do is in someway involved with Coco Chanel’s history and her personal life. Now, I can look at [the collection] in a different way and see, ‘oh that’s inspired by this or that.’ I didn’t realize how much history is in all other pieces.”
A version of this appears in this new issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands now, or buy it here. Don’t forget to subscribe for more exclusive interviews and photos, only in EW.
Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Ballet, based on an 1816 E.T.A. Hoffmann story, is as synonymous with the holidays as Santa Claus and candy canes. Now Disney has given it new life with The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, a big-screen adaptation that centers on Clara’s adventures in an ornate palace and the fanciful lands that surround it. Producer Mark Gordon tells EW that bringing the experience of the ballet to a wider audience was very much a part of why he and Disney wanted to tell the story on movie screens. “It’s such a beloved holiday classic as far as the ballet is concerned,” he says, “and yet how many people have an opportunity to see the ballet?”
Taking inspiration from the worlds and music of the original story and the ballet, Four Realms blows things up to an eye-popping scale. “We did our own version of some of the different visuals that one has seen over the years in some of the classic ballet versions,” says Gordon, while production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas adds, “It was vitally important to try my hardest to fulfill everybody’s vision of what this world would be like if they really saw it outside of a ballet stage setting.”
Dyas says he didn’t want to design settings that were “aesthetically pleasing without any logical backbone,” so he built the world from the ground up and adhered to a strict historical cutoff at the year 1879. “I tried desperately to make a logic to this entire universe, so the 5-year-old me would believe this world,” he says. “I remember as a kid going to see a lot of films and not quite buying into some of these worlds because they weren’t built from the ground up as real societies.”
Constructing a world that would feel tactile and tangible to the audience meant building the majority of the sets and only filling in here and there with CGI. “This is not a green-screen movie,” Gordon says. “We actually built these sets. We wanted the audience to feel the reality and almost have a tactile experience, even though they’re not literally touching it. You can feel the difference between virtual sets and real sets.”
Disney gave EW an exclusive look at the magical four realms and the palace at the heart of it all. Take a look below for more on each of the enchanting sets.
At the center of the movie is the palace, where the regents of all the realms convene. The castle set, which star Mackenzie Foy (Clara) calls “insane,” boasts a working portcullis and floor-to-ceiling tapestries. Both Gordon and Dyas cite a heavy Russian influence in the design. “[We] veered away from the more traditional fairy castles and chateaus we’ve seen in recent years,” says Dyas. “There’s a strong Russian historical context to The Nutcracker, so it was a very natural aesthetic to start studying architecturally. The child in me looked at some of those gorgeous Russian buildings with all their bright colors and onion-topped towers, and I realized very quickly what I was looking at were heaps of candy and flowers.”
The key to making the palace feel fantastical was to take the Russian historical architecture and add elements like highly saturated colors. “You’re not really sure, looking at some of these buildings, whether they are real palaces or toys in the imagination of a child,” Dyas says.
In the middle of the palace is the throne room, with four corners looking north, south, east, and west, to each of the different realms. As part of ensuring the logic of the world, Dyas assigned specific jobs and responsibilities to each realm.
LAND OF FLOWERS
In this agricultural home to farmers and beekeepers, Dyas turned to Dutch windmills and villages in the south of England to design his floral masterpieces. “There are windmills in the Land of Flowers, and they’re farmers, so there’s the production of flour and wheat, and all the primary functions of a society are done there. We took it seriously and adorned the sets with live flowers,” he notes. “It wasn’t about making the flowers look real; it was about getting the perfume in the air and allowing the performers to really feel the magic of what it must be like to be in a world of flowers.”
For Foy, the Land of Flowers presented a unique challenge to her allergies, but she was still blown away by the design. “There were real flowers on set. And they would have real fruits and vegetables,” she marvels. “It was crazy how much detail was in it. Between takes, I kept going and smelling them because they smelled so good.”
LAND OF SNOWFLAKES
For this realm of politicians, ice producers, and miners, Dyas took inspiration from a famous Swedish ice hotel and 16th-century German villages, transforming that architecture into layers of ice. “The most fun was coming up with their transportation system, which is primarily sleighs with deer,” Dyas recalls. Foy says that walking into elaborate sets like these felt just as magical for her as an actor as it was meant to feel for the character of Clara: “It was like you walked into a new world.”
LAND OF SWEETS
Inspired by the character of the Sugar Plum Fairy (played here by Keira Knightley), this land was built from real candy. “They had to put signs that said, ‘Don’t eat the candy,’” says Foy. “I’m like, ‘I want to eat it now that I know that it’s real!’” Dyas remembers the sets being irresistible temptations for younger members of the cast. “I won’t name names, but one of our younger cast, every time I turned up on set, his cheeks were filled like a hamster,” Dyas jokes. “A lot of [them] didn’t eat their lunch that day.”
Dyas had several inspirations for the brightly colored Land of Sweets, but he admits the first images to spring to mind were of the board game Candy Land. Luckily for Dyas and his strict historical accuracy, lots of contemporary candy has roots in the Victorian era. “Victorians at that time had immersed themselves in the most incredible candy invention you could ever have imagined,” he says. “Most of the candy and sweets that we know today stem from things developed at that time. Whether it be cotton candy or marzipan or refined nougat, chocolate cake, all these things.”
These various confections were employed with ingenuity to craft buildings with real chocolate tile roofs, walls of nougat, and stained-glass windows made of boiled sweets. They make surprisingly good building materials. “The walls of the building are made of nougat, and when you cut through nougat, you see all the nuts and cherries that are in there,” explains Dyas. “That looks wonderful on the sides of the building because it looks like this stonework.” Another key element of this realm was the heaps of steam coming from the buildings and the groups of background actors hard at work making candy to demonstrate that this is the “industrial revolution” portion of the world.
THE FOURTH REALM
Previously known as the Land of Amusements and ruled over by Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), the Fourth Realm is now a mysterious place, which the creative team will only describe as “creepy.” Gordon does hint that the majority of the story takes place in this realm. Foy adds, “It’s creepy trees and all that kind of stuff, and it was very big and it was beautiful. Those were very, very impressive sets.”
While Dyas won’t go into too much detail, he refers to the Fourth Realm as a “mysterious place” that denizens of the world have been afraid to visit for many years. Prior to becoming this strange place, Dyas says, it was the “fun fair and circus center of the world.”
Both Dyas and Foy note that it was home to some of their largest, most impressive sets, including one Dyas says was so “bizarre and wild” in architecture and silhouette that it attracted members of other productions shooting at London’s Pinewood Studios to ogle it.

All Clara wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip, a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
Starring Mackenzie Foy, Keira Knightley, Eugenio Derbez, Miranda Hart, Jack Whitehall, Misty Copeland, Morgan Freeman and Helen Mirren, the film is released October 26, 2018 in the UK, followed by the U.S. on November 2.
