Andrea Riseborough wants Ridley role
Andrea Riseborough would love to work with Sir Ridley Scott.
The 'Shadow Dancer' actress stars alongside James McAvoy in 'Welcome to the Punch', which was produced by the filmmaker, but she didn't get to work closely with her dream director and hopes to team up with him again.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''I know I worked with him, but we didn't actually work closely together. I admire him such a great deal. I think he's always supportive of new challenge, innovation and fresh ways, and I would very much like to work with him.''
The 31-year-old actress is also hoping to follow in the 'Prometheus' director-and-producer's footsteps by stepping behind the camera, and reveals she has created her own production company.
She said: ''I just finished up setting up a production company which is called Mother Sucker. I'm very much looking forward to the different perspective of being behind the scenes as well. I'm just so roused up about it. I look very much to experiencing both sides of the feature.''
Andrea is nominated for the EE Rising Star Award at the 2013 British Academy Film Awards, alongside Elizabeth Olsen, Suraj Sharma, Juno Temple and Alicia Vikander.
Voting is now open to the public at ee.co.uk/bafta and the winner will be announced at the BAFTA ceremony tonight (10.02.13).
