Actress Rose Byrne sat down with Examiner Dorri Olds for an interview this month at The Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City. She wore a fun Asian-inspired sweater and very little makeup. Her hair looked much lighter than usual and it framed the delicate bones of her exquisite face. She looked much smaller than she does onscreen.
Byrne is best known for her role as Ellen Parsons in the five-season cable TV series "Damages." Her ethical character fought hard to get out from under the powerful thumb of her previous mentor, the diabolical lawyer Patty Hewes (Glenn Close).
Byrne was in New York City to promote her latest movie, "Insidious: Chapter 2," the sequel to 2010's "Insidious," which opens in September on Friday the 13th. You can expect a haunted house with creaking doors, and bump-in-the-night frights, plus the added suspense of a murder mystery. The entire cast returned for the sequel and Byrne attributes that to the wonderful director, James Wan.
In May of 2014, "Neighbors" is set for release. It stars Byrne, along with Zac Efron, Lisa Kudrow, and Seth Rogen. Additional projects in the works include the remake of "Annie" starring Byrne, Cameron Diaz, Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx. That movie is due out for Christmas 2014.
