Esquire: Thomasin McKenzie Goes Big

The ascendant actress discusses entering the dark side of 1960s Soho in Edgar Wright’s new chiller


Rachel Louise Brown for Esquire

The actress Thomasin McKenzie is an introverted performer, imbuing her characters with a quiet intensity rather than fighting for the camera’s attention. “It takes a lot of effort from me to be‘ big’,” she tells Esquire over Zoom, from her family home in Wellington, New Zealand. “Even when I feel like I’m doing a massive performance, I watch the film and it’s so much smaller than it felt in my head.”

For her next role, the 21-year-old, who is endearingly sweet yet preternaturally sage, in the way actors who have worked alongside adults from a young age sometimes are, had no choice: she had to go big. McKenzie leads the cast of the flamboyant horror film Last Night in Soho, a technicolour extravaganza from Edgar Wright, the treasured British director behind Shaun of the Dead and Baby Driver. The actress plays Eloise, a goofy aspiring fashion designer who dreams of moving to London. Once there, she is transported to the Swinging Sixties where she encounters Sandy (played by the similarly elfin actress Anya Taylor-Joy, who screams, sobs and smokes with the same vigour as she did in the Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit), only to find the fluorescent lights and glamour of the city are a garish nightmare from up close.

McKenzie is the daughter of an actress, Miranda Harcourt, and a director, Stuart McKenzie, and the granddaughter of another actress, Dame Kate Harcourt. Her early years in New Zealand were spent running around the acting school where her mother taught. A savvy nine-year-old, she initially entered the family business as a side-hustle, performing for pocket money so that she could buy new toys. “I used to collect erasers, which are rubbers but I call them erasers because in America rubbers are condoms and it’s not a good look to say you’re collecting condoms,” she laughs. “I was really obsessed with Sylvanian Families, too.”

McKenzie’s breakout role came in Debra Granik’s 2018 Leave No Trace, about a PTSD-afflicted father who lives off-grid in the woods with his daughter, a part McKenzie fit so perfectly that, watching the film, it feels as though Granik had come across McKenzie by searching the forest before they started filming. The director pulled off the same trick once before, plucking a teenaged Jennifer Lawrence from obscurity for the revered Winter’s Bone. McKenzie’s performance in Leave No Trace earned her comparisons to Lawrence, a strange thing for an 18-year-old who had grown up on The Hunger Games to contend with. Admired performances in Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit and M Night Shyamalan’s Old followed, and now her slate of upcoming projects features some of the biggest names in filmmaking.

McKenzie was shooting her compatriot Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog, about a pair of warring brothers on a ranch in Montana, when the pandemic halted production in early 2020. She went back to stay with her family in New Zealand, settling into a bubble far away from the noise she had grown accustomed to. “After Leave No Trace it was hard to take stock,” she says.“The lockdown was a great moment to pause and reassess what kind of stuff I wanted to do. I don’t do films because of how big they might be, I’m just living every day.”

Last Night in Soho is Wright’s love letter to London’s most louche and libidinous enclave, which dazzled him as a teenage boy from Dorset. The closing credits feature shots of the city captured during the pandemic, when the streets were terrifyingly empty and the pubs were —more terrifyingly still — shuttered. “It paints a good picture of what Soho is: the good and the bad,” McKenzie says of the film. Wright issued a list of 1960s films for her to make her way through to get a sense of the tone he wanted, with horror classics like Polanski’s Repulsion and Rosemary’s Baby, as well as British kitchen-sink dramas Poor Cow and A Taste of Honey all featuring. “I’m not naturally a horror watcher,” she says. “He had [Dario Argento’s terrifying 1977 film] Suspiria on the list but I couldn’t do it. It didn’t sound like my cup of tea.”

Last Night in Soho is in cinemas 31 Oct

The Justice of Bunny King interview (1News)

Thomasin McKenzie talks about new Kiwi film exploring ‘heavy subject matters’

A new Kiwi film is exploring “heavy subject matters” which are significant to New Zealand, actress Thomasin McKenzie says.

The film, The Justice of Bunny King, which has just hit cinemas, follows the story of mum-of-two Bunny King who has a sketchy past, but fundamentally is a decent human being just desperate to get her babies back from foster care.
Issues of housing and child abuse are among the heavy topics explored in the film.
New Zealand actress McKenzie, who plays Tonyah, this morning told Breakfast she got the script in 2018 and was excited to work alongside the female-led crew.
She also said her connection to producer Emma Slade, who produced her parents film The Changover, encouraged her to get on board with this project.
“It’s just such a strong female team which is still quite rare, it’s still quite rare to be completely surrounded by females on set so I really wanted to be a part of supporting that,” the 21-year-old explained.

But she also felt a connection to the story itself.
“It touches on the housing crisis in New Zealand, on child abuse. It’s got really heavy subject matters but there’s such levity to it at the same time,” McKenzie said.
“Essie Davis, who played the lead Bunny, she brought such life, a joy for life and a passion and desire.
“She does everything in the name of love and that relationship between Bunny and my character Tonyah was so strong, they were really there for each other and I really loved reading that and I really wanted to be a part of creating or bringing that to life.”
McKenzie, who is back in New Zealand now after recently celebrating her 21st birthday in managed isolation, said it would just be a holiday at home, though, to catch up with friends and family.
The actress is here for one month before heading away to various film festivals promoting another film she stars in, Last Night in Soho, which is directed by Edgar Wright.
