“Now I’m older, I crave working with more women”

Confident, determined, and brimming with natural talent, Kate Mara is fast becoming one of Hollywood’s hottest properties. From embracing feminism to cherishing her family roots, here’s why we adore the House Of Cards star


Anyone who’s watched Netflix’s wonderful series House Of Cards will be familiar with actress Kate Mara’s incredible ability to flash from childlike vulnerability to impenetrable steeliness in a matter of frames. Playing feisty young journalist, Zoe Barnes, who ends up embroiled in a dangerous love affair with a duplicitous US Congressman, played by Kevin Spacey, Mara captures perfectly the vigour and naivety that made Zoe so disarming, but ultimately led to her character’s tragic demise.

While the 33-year-old has very little in common with her ruthless and blindly ambitious House Of Cards alter-ego, that contradiction remains and is evident in almost every interview she does. She’s open and kind, but also fiercely straight-talking; in other words, Mara doesn’t put up with any nonsense. For example, while promoting the recent Fantastic Four reboot, in which she played Marvel’s superheroine, Sue Storm, Mara grew uneasy when a DJ on Atlanta’s Rock 100.5 Morning Show began making odd remarks about her toes and, in reference to her pixie crop, asked why she’d cut off her ‘beautiful hair’. ‘This is a great interview,’ quipped Mara, with a sigh.
