Vanessa Kirby – the actress that stirred up Hollywood summer movies (Part 2)

However, on the screen, Vanessa has been famous for three years now. The turning point of her career was The Crown (2016) series, about the life of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy). Vanessa’s character is Princess Margaret – sister Elizabeth II. On the Guardian, she said tormenting the incarnation of a character with a lot of fame.

Why do women hang Margaret’s photos in the bedroom, wondering in what situations the princess will behave? In reality, Margaret is considered a British royal controversial figure, addicted to smoking, drinking alcohol and having sex with many men.

She is also perceived as difficult to approach, or to disregard others. Vanessa said how to play characters easily is to mimic her negative attitude. However, she wanted to go deeper and reveal Margaret’s personality before she became uncomfortable. “I want to find the pain under those expressions,” she said. Kirby’s performance was praised and helped her win the women’s drama series at BAFTA in 2018 (Britain’s most important film award).

Close action is an unexpected turn for Vanessa Kirby. During Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, Vanessa said there was no physical well-being, often to the end of school run tests, and no experience of acting before Mission: Impossile – Fallout. “My most powerful scene in The Crown is just stabbing a cigarette into a sandwich,” she told Rolling Stone.

However, Tom Cruise chose the female star to be impressed by his role in The Crown. The American actor also helped her improve her understanding of action movies. “I don’t understand anything about adventure until I see Tom on the set. You have to be an athlete and a dancer. The battle scene is like learning ballet,” she said.

In last year’s blockbuster, Kirby had a knife fight scene. In Hobbs & Shaw, her action sequences are significantly greater with running, jumping and melee displays. She practiced three hours a day, three days a week, for six weeks.

Actress Vanessa Kirby never thought of acting before she was invited to “Mission: Impossible 6”, “Fast & Furious 9”.

When Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw premiered, Vanessa Kirby impressed Hattie Shaw. On IMDb, she is the fifth highest-rated actor globally this week, higher than both her co-stars Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson in the film. Her character is a special agent, younger sister Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), attracted by beauty and has many scenes fighting in the evil confrontation of Brixton (Idris Elba).

Recent “action” is often associated with Vanessa. Last summer, she starred in Tom Cruise’s blockbuster Mission: Impossible – Fallout as the boss of the arms trade. This year, the beauty born in 1988 is the heroine in an episode of the world’s top-selling action brand. The Ringer commented that she was worthy of the action star, Rolling Stone even called Kirby “the new action hero of the summer”.

At the start of her career, Vanessa never thought she would become “a woman”, like sharing on Rolling Stone: “I am not the type of action movie actor. I am a stage-loving girl in London.” The female star grew up in Wimbledon (England) in a well-off family, whose father was the famous doctor Roger Kirby and his mother was the editor of Country Living magazine. On the Guardian, Vanessa says there is a happy childhood with good social and economic conditions. However, she said she was bullied at school and contracted a parasitic disease from 9 to 11 years old, making her often nauseous.

Her father regularly takes her daughter to watch movies, plays, and helps her to foster artistic love. Vanessa is passionate about drama, has performed many plays during her school days and stole pictures of actor Ben Whishaw as Hamlet (Shakespeare’s character in the same name) at school.

Vanessa has been acting professionally since 2010, both in the theater and film sectors, primarily with a psychological role. From the beginning of her career, she was “immersed” in the praise of acting. As Rosalind in the drama As You Like It (2010), the beauty was praised by Guardian as “outstanding talent”. With The Acid Test in Royal Court (London, England), Vanessa was written by Paul Taylor of the Independent as “an unprecedented star”. She won four awards for drama from 2010 to 2015.

Viewpoints about graffiti arts

Nowadays, graffiti pictures on the walls around the city have become the spiritual property.

In the past, when it came to graffiti, many Westerners would immediately think of guys wearing hoodie shirts, hand-painted bottles, swearing and sabotaging the landscape with rebellious messages. It was around the 1970s, when the antiwar movement was strong. Protesters, young people, choose to spray angry statements against the government on the wall. Most passersby didn’t bother with the messy messages written on it, others were very angry.

The change of the times

Soon after graffiti appeared, suddenly, the media suddenly changed their attitudes – former graffiti prosecutors were then criticized as conservatives. People were unable to see the true beauty of art. However, graffiti is now evaluated as masterpieces. This is because in the midst of scattering paint colors, there are real artists that appear, the peak is Robert Banks, better known by the more familiar name: Banksy.

Banksy’s artworks became so famous that people were willing to remove the wall he drew, then sold the work at a high price. His success became an inspiration for many other street artists and individuals who collected art works. It was realized that old walls and cellars could also become a platform for creative artists.

An urban art genre

However, before honoring Banksy, modern art advocates have taken actions to show respect for graffiti, and consider it an urban art genre. Since the late 1970s and early 1980s, some street corners in New York such as Houston Street or Bowery have become free spaces for street artists. Some areas in England such as Brixton or Westbourne Grove also allow artists to freely express and record their names.

When young people started to pay attention to the colorful pictures on the wall, it was also time for those working in the media to realize the influence of colorful works that used to seem silly.
