Jessica Chastain Reveals She's "Nervous" Over Broadway Debut
Breakout actress Jessica Chastain may be known for her roles in The Tree of Life and The Help, but for the Oscar-nominated actress, starring on Broadway this fall is like coming home.
She told the Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet of the 2012 Tony Awards she'll start rehearsals for The Heiress this fall. "I'm nervous," she admitted. It's a great role, it's one of the best roles written for women. Moises Kaufman is a wonderful director, and he's such a kind, supportive man so I'm really excited to work for him."
In the role, Jessica will play Catherine Sloper, a psychologically complex character. Apparently her socially awkward chance at love and happiness isn't peachy keen, thanks to her cold and distant father.
Jessica added, "I'm a Broadway fan....I started out in theater, I went to Julliard. Theater is my home. I somehow started making TV shows and film, but now I'm excited to come back home."
