Petaluma teenager stars in movie „Lucas“
As I don't want that you ruin your eyes in reading this not so good scan...I've ruined mine...(-;
Winona Ryder's acting career started with chewable vitamin C.
Ryder, the Petaluma High School freshman who stars in the hit movie "Lucas" said she's always wanted to be an actress "ever since i was a little girl. I remember I could be real good. I loved to eat chewable vitamin C, but my parents would only give me so many. I could think up the greatest stories about how they were missing and why."
"Sometimes it actually worked," she said with a laugh. "It was sort of deceiving of me, but it was fun. I realized i could do a good job."
Ryder's friends and neighbors will have a chance to see what kind of job she does because "Lucas" opens today for a week's run at the Washington Square Cinemas.
It's scary to think that some of her friends will be seeing and judging her performance, the 14-year old said. "I'm sort of shy," she explained," when I went to the screening in L.A. and people would come up and compliment me I would thank them but it was such a shock, you know, that so many people had just seen me act."
The first time she saw the film, it was hard to watch. "I was looking at my agent's arm and he was trying to get me to look at the screen. I was just really scared to see my face that big."
In Petaluma "people are going to see me as a totally different person," she said. "People who don't know me will probably think that I'm like Rina," the character she plays.
