Cate Blanchett

Blanchett, Cate

After winning an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in The Aviator, Australian actress Cate Blanchett has continued to juggle her busy acting career by looking after her three sons with her husband, playwright and screenwriter Andrew Upton, as well as the role of co-artistic director of the Sydney theatre company. In this biographical profile, we are taken back to the birth of her third child as she explains how she fits everything in even with a baby on the way and actually enjoys being pulled in all different directions; she admits her family helps takes the pressure off during awards' time, because she can just sit back and enjoy being nominated, knowing winning is not the "be all and end all." We also see her regal, almost ethereal looks have served her well as she has played the role of a queen many times, in films such as Elizabeth and Elizabeth, the Golden Age, where she played Queen Elizabeth I; and Lady Galadriel of Lothlorien in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. 2014 JSCA 30 min.
