We took five to sit down and catch up with Menik Gooneratne over the holidays, The Aussie star who’s fast making a name for herself in Hollywood. Menik’s recent role in Peter Jacksons Mortal Engines has undoubtedly given the world a glimpse into her talents; We talk all about the part and the experiences that came with this role. And gain some insight into something, She’s also working on with a project closer to home a Screenplay with a uniquely Australian twist.
Thanks for taking the time to sit down with us today, and Congratulations for being apart of the Mortal Engines series.
What was it like hearing you had been cast in the film?
Ah, it was in a way, and even right now felt surreal. It was this weird thing, you work really hard, and you audition and you try all these things, and you get so much rejection, and then you get a yes and an easy yes if that makes any sense at all and it’s mind-blowing.
