Elle: Last Night in Soho’s Thomasin McKenzie Is Just Getting Started

It was inevitable that Thomasin McKenzie would join the film industry. Well, almost. The Kiwi star of such films as Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit, M. Night Shyamalan’s Old, and Edgar Wright’s latest Last Night in Soho is a third-generation actress; both her mother Miranda Harcourt and maternal grandmother Kate Harcourt are performers, while her father Stuart McKenzie is a writer and director. “My parents were pretty pleased when I followed in their footsteps,” McKenzie tells ELLE.com. “But it wasn’t expected.”

McKenzie, 21, who was raised with her three siblings in Wellington, New Zealand, loved biology at school and had early dreams of working with animals. “I definitely didn’t want to be an actress at first,” she explains. “I was more interested in being a vet or working at an animal rescue.” She did, however, enjoy the time away from school she was able to get while starring in local TV and film projects like Consent: The Louise Nicholas Story and the soap opera Shortland Street. “In the beginning, I would do it just so I could get pocket money so I could buy myself Bratz Dolls and Sylvanian Families,” McKenzie smiles. “That was my main incentive—and also to get time off school was a bonus. But the more I did it, the more I fell in love with it.”

While her older siblings pursued careers in journalism and teaching, McKenzie continued to rack up acting credits in New Zealand including a featured extra role in The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies. Although, appearing in the Lord of the Rings franchise was less of a Kiwi rite of passage than being cast in a small role in Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog, the New Zealand filmmaker’s celebrated return to cinema releasing on Netflix this year. “I’ve known Jane my entire life,” McKenzie says. “She’s my little sister’s godmother, and she’s always been someone that I’ve looked up to. She’s been such a magical figure in my life with her silver hair and her wonderful presence.”

Hi everyone! Veronique, the owner of Thomasin McKenzie Fan, here!

Do you visit Thomasin McKenzie Fan frequently? Do you have any photos, screencaps, magazine scans, photoshoots etc that aren’t on this fansite yet and you would like to donate? You can EMAIL ME. Also let me know if you would like to be credited and how.

What can you donate?
Fanart, Candid + Event Photos, Film Stills + Screencaps, Magazine Scans and Photoshoots. Or even money.

Normally I’m not someone who asks money from people, so that is NOT what this is. Donating means that it is OPTIONAL. I’ve been getting a lot compliments about this site and all the great content. Thank you so much for all of your warm words, it makes it so much easier to keep this fansite as updated as possible!

As many of you may already know it isn’t easy to keep a fansite like this one updated with the best and most recent content. Up to this point I’ve always paid for all the HQ picture content in the gallery! As well as the domain name and the hosting.

Unfortunately it has gotten more difficult for me to finance everything. So that’s why I wanted to try a DONATE button on the website.

Again, donating is optional and all you have to do is click on the button below to be redirected to the donation page. You can choose to either pay with PayPal or with Debit or Credit Card. And you can, of course, choose the amount you want to donate.

All donations will be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for all of your continued support. Let’s make Thomasin McKenzie Fan even better together!
