Rose will receive the AACTA Trailblazer Award at the AACTA Awards on Thursday, 29th January in Sydney! Congratulations to her and we can’t wait to get pictures from the event. You can also read a new interview below (and via the source)!
Rose Byrne admits she isn’t great at talking about herself. It just doesn’t feel right. That said, the Australian actress is thankful for the opportunities that have allowed her to become one of our biggest international exports.
“I find it hard to do,” Byrne tells Insider at Sydney’s Darling Hotel. “It is more about commenting on one’s own career, because it is just your life and you navigate it the best way you can.”
The New York-based actress, 35, is home to receive the inaugural Trailblazer Award at the annual AACTA Awards on Thursday, honoured for her contribution to the industry. She’s starred in several award-winning Australian films, including Two Hands and My Mother Frank, as well as Hollywood blockbusters including Troy, 28 Weeks Later and X-Men: First Class.
“I grew up here doing Australian television, film and theatre and I continue to do so, but not as much now because I am away,” she says. “There is something extra-special and emotional about coming home to receive something like this. It is so important to continue to nourish our industry and to continue to tell our stories and to have an Australian voice.”
