Thomasin McKenzie for CROOKES

  • Eva Dang

THOMASIN McKENZIE has been travelling around the world, attending some of the most prestigious film festivals to promote her latest project ‘Leave No Trace’. Thomasin first hit the big screen just four years ago, in the epic fantasy ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ – filmed in her home country of New Zealand. Now in her third feature – Thomasin is receiving critical acclaim for her performance in ‘Leave No Trace’. The film follows a father and his thirteen-year-old daughter (portrayed by Ben Foster and Thomasin respectively) who are living an isolated existence, off the grid, in a vast urban park in Portland, Oregon. When a small mistake derails their lives forever, they are both put into social services. After clashing with their new surroundings, they set off back to their wild homeland. Thomasin is currently filming Netflix’s ‘The King’ alongside Timothée Chalamet who portrays the titular figure of King Henry V. She will star as his younger sister Philippa of England. CROOKES Magazine met Thomasin in mid-festival flow at the Czech Republic’s luxurious Grandhotel Pupp for a photoshoot.
