Девочка, которая танцевала с Ди Каприо: как сложилась ее судьба

В 1997 году вышел «Титаник» Джеймса Кэмерона, который в одно мгновение стал культовым. Честно говоря, куда проще найти человека, который его смотрел как минимум дважды, чем того, кто не смотрел ни разу.

Те, кто знает фильм наизусть, наверняка помнят сцену, где Джек Доусон танцует с маленькой девочкой с пухленькими щечками. Ее зовут Александра Оуэнс-Сарно, и это была ее первая профессиональная роль.

Девочка мечтала стать актрисой с 4 лет, потому уговорила мать отвести ее на съемки грядущего фильма Джеймса Кэмерона. Пока они стояли в очереди, чтобы скоротать время, женщина поведала дочери историю легендарного судна.

Этот рассказ настолько впечатлил маленькую Александру, что она расплакалась. Как раз в этот момент мимо проходил директор по кастингу, который взял ее за руку и провел на пробы вне очереди.

Девочку попросили станцевать и произнести несколько реплик. Оуэнс-Сарно удалось впечатлить окружающих, так что она сразу же получила роль. Впоследствии она рассказывала, что во время съемок сам Ди Каприо ей во многом помогал и давал ценные советы.

Get to know @alexowenssarno !! ????????? ????? ?? ??????? [Usually just] water, but when (…) treating myself there’s this Matcha Cold Brew from Toastea in DTLA that I’m so obsessed with & now you’ve got me craving it. ???????? ?????? I’m one of those “I’m a cinephile, don’t have a favorite” people. But,if we’re talking desert island, can’t watch anything [else ever again], it would have to be Willow. It’s got fairies, an evil sorceress, drunk brownies, Val Kilmer with flowing locks & a f*** you attitude, & WARWICK DAVIS KICKING SOME ASS. Nerd Alert. Funny Girl would be an extremely close second. You did my girl Fanny dirty but I’ll always love you Nicky Arnstein. ???? ????????? ? ??????? ??? ???? ?? ? ???; ???? ??? ??????? ????? ??? One of my mom’s favorite things when we were growing up was curating our Halloween costumes, so I’ve had some pretty great ones. My favorite one was this huge, flowing, white princess dress. I always thought I was going to marry Prince William, because I’m a 90’s kid, so duh, & this dress was just a precursor for the life I was going to lead. In reality, I probably liked to pretend to be a princess more than I would have actually liked the real gig. Hence the acting. ???????? ? ?????? I’m going w/ shock tarts.  ???? ?????-?????? -???? [At this moment in time]: to costar alongside Viola Davis in a drama, preferably where we get to scream & ugly cry at each other. She is my absolute hero. The adversity she’s faced, the power she holds, her dedication to herself & fighting for the roles she deserves.It’s so inspiring. And to be in the presence of that kind of energy would be the highlight of my life.  ???????? ?????? ???????? ????/?????? My exboyfriend got me into a competition called Forged in Fire. It’s basically just a bunch of dudes (ladies, more of us need to get into knife making!) competing on who made the best knife. [After] the 1st two rounds they get to make an obscure weapon from history. It’s just about the nerdiest I’ve felt watching a show and I love it.

После Александра лишь сильнее захотела стать актрисой, но подобный путь открыт далеко не для всех. Девушка долгое время посещала курсы актерского мастерства, но вскоре отказалась от мыслей покорить Голливуд.

When life tries to hand you lemons, but you know you’re about to quietly swoop that damn orchard right from underneath its grasp and own the whole damn thing. Live for you. Follow your dreams.

Также Александра ведет свой видеоблог и даже пытается писать книги. Время от времени ее приглашают сняться в короткометражных лентах.

I’ve been so bad about scrolling through hundreds of pics of my face, but I really liked this one on my only go round. Big thanks to @matt_kallish (?) and @ursache_beauty (MUA) for making me look like I don’t seriously dislike having my picture taken #headshots #actress #actorslife #ionlywearthisjeanjacket #titanic #coracartmell

Однако согласись, ту маленькую девочку всё еще можно без труда узнать в этой молодой целеустремленной женщине. Надеемся, мы еще услышим ее имя, желаем ей всяческих успехов!
