Academy-award-winner Rachel Weisz finds performing for the live audience “wild and risky” and has vowed to do stage every year from now on. The 40-year-old actress, who kickstarted her career in a student theatre group during her time at Cambridge University, recently returned to the stage with a starring role in a production of A Streetcar Named Desire.
She won the coveted Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress for her performance in the play recently, the Daily Express reported. The Mummy star is now adamant she will indulge in her love for the stage.
“I’m greedy — I’d like to do film and theatre. It was eight years since I’d last been on stage. I hope to do a play maybe every year. It’s the greatest feeling in the world being on stage. It’s very wild and risky” she said.
