It’s a big day for Mackenzie Foy. Haidressing, make-up, pictures then interview, since 8 in the morning, she’s working hard. Nothing that worries the cutie, who’s used to all this. Now 16 years old, works since she’s a toddler. He rfirst shooting was for Ralph Lauren. Already classy. She remember just bits of it.
“I was really very young”, she says. But she remember that she instantly loved the job. This impression the “you could do anything, become anybody…” It clicked. So she carried on with modeling and tried advertising, and the movie industry. Today, she shares a cinema set with Morgan Freeman, Keira Knightley and the ballerina Misty Copeland for the new version of The Nutbreaker by Disney. Mackenzie is Clara, the little girl who must keep a nubreaker in the shape of a soldier. It springs into life, face en evil seven-headed mouse and takes Clara in a world full of animated dolles and gingerbread people. Love, magic and Christmas spirit. If Disney can be some sort of consecration for her, Mackenzie is not stranger to blockbusters and five star castings. Before exchanging lines with Morgan Freeman, she was in Interstellar Murphy Cooper, daughter of Joseph Cooper, a brave astronaut played by Matthew McConaughey, left in an intergalactic journey to save mankind. She also was in Twilight, chapters 4 and 5. And TV shows like Hawaii 5-0, independent movies like Wish You Well…
In 2015, she was the voice of a little girl in the acclaimed animated movie The Little Prince, a little girl who is prepared to be the perfect adult when she discovers the poetic and strange adventure of the Little Prince thanks to her aviator neighbor. And her, did she ever wanted to have a simpler childhood ? “I am happy and proud of everything I done”, she says. “I think I had a normal childhood. I just travelled more than other kids.”
Mackenzie don’t say much about herself. Her mother, who accompanied her for the shooting, warned us. Boys ? No time for them. Her friends ? They are here, neither models nor actresses, and not impressed in the slightest to see their friend playing in Twilight with teenage idol Kristen Stewart. “They just say congratulations and come with us, we’re going out.” explains Mackenzie. That’s all she’s gonna say about her social life. A restraint and self discipline that the young girl maybe learned from her practice in the martial arts. When she’s not making a movie, she trains rigorously in taekwondo, at a rate of six or seven evenings a week. “I love the idea of taking care of your own body and your mind.”, she says. She’s a black belt. In 2014, she prove her skills to Jimmy Fallon on the set of the Tonight Show. “I think I hurt him a little”, she laughs.
Focused, Mackenzie follows her own path. Her new objective : directing. She ask for advices on her different movie shootings. “I’m interested in how they succeed in getting all my emotions.”, she says. Best advice so far : “Bill Condon, the Twilight director, told me that there was no need to cry to be sad, no need to shout to be angry.”
In five years, Mackenzie will be 21 years old. Where does she think she will be then ? Making another movie probably. Maybe behind the camera. Or ” With my cats while reading a book.” Definitely, it was a long day.
