Undeniable Fact About AOTC #30: It Introduced Rose Byrne To The World


Just as TPM gave Keira Knightley her first big break, AOTC introduced who was then a young actress only known in Australia to the international stage as one of Padmé’s trusty handmaidens. Proving there are no small roles, Byrne gave enough of an impression as Dormé to start getting parts in Hollywood films like 2004’s “Troy.” She has appeared in a bunch of other movies, including “X-Men: First Class,” “Insidious,” “Bridesmaids,” and the recent “Neighbors.” She also co-starred with Glenn Close in the FX series “Damages.”

    Which made me check her other work. That’s how I discovered “Adam”, a very touching story about a guy with Asperger’s. She now has quite the resume. LP – I don’t know what direction you’re heading in but it would be great to acknowledge Trisha Biggar and how her work (along with other contributors) made us all aware of how much having the right costume aids the actor. Also allllllllllllll of that amazing detail work.

      We play this movie at work for every group that comes through (I work with an intensive job/life coaching program for young adult Aspies)

      Of course, as a guy named Adam with Asperger’s myself, it hits a little too close to home for me sometimes.

    Wow, didn’t even notice this one!

    I always, always said this.

    I remember growing up all my life hearing and seeing this girl and all i would ever do is: “gasp!…SW!”

    I would see ignorant tellingly young hateboys talking about how much they love her on FX or in this or that. None of them ever acknowledged it though ofcourse.

    Because that would mean they would have to acknowledge that the PT made people into stars.

    Its a funny world we live in.
