When she’s not falling down a rabbit hole as Alice in Tim Burton’s fantastical Alice in Wonderland – in which she stars alongside Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter – Mia Wasikowska can be seen playing the teenage daughter of a married lesbian couple (Julianne Moore and Annette Bening) in 2010’s The Kids Are All Right.

Most recently as Charlotte Brontë’s iconic heroine to hottie Michael Fassbender’s Mr. Rochester in the film adaptation of Jane Eyre (out now).

In her next film, Restless, directed by Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting), Wasikowska will play Annabel Cotton, a terminally ill teenager who falls in love with Enoch Brae (Henry Hopper), a boy who fancies going to funerals.

With more than eight films under her belt, and four more due to be released in the next year, this 21-year-old aspiring Aussie is definitely one to watch. After studying ballet throughout her childhood, Mia desired something “grittier” and decided to have a go at acting. At only 17-years-old she moved to the U.S. and landed a spot on the popular television drama, In Treatment, which served as the launching point for her ever-blossoming acting career.

Although she’s rumored to be single, there’s no shortage of gorgeous men in Mia’s life. In her upcoming films, Albert Nobbs, The Wettest County in the World (2012), and Stoker (2012), she stars alongside the likes of Aaron Johnson, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Shia LaBeouf, and Tom Hardy.

And in a yet-untitled Jim Jarmusch (Coffee and Cigarettes) film, Mia will once again share a starring role with the ever-so-popular and ever-so-handsome Michael Fassbender.

If there’s anything to know about this talented young actress, it’s that she clearly has very good taste.
