Zoe Kravitz Was Told She Was Too "Urban" For A Role In The Dark Knight Rises
In a recent interview with Nylon magazine, Zoe Kravitz (X-Men: First Class, Mad Max: Fury Road, Dope) reveals that she was denied an audition for Christopher Nolan's final Bat-flick based solely on her ethnicity. Click on to find out what she had to say...
26-year-old Zoe Kravitz (daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet) first came to our attention playing Angel Salvador in X-Men: First Class, and has since gone on to give memorable turns in the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road, Insurgent, Dope and The Road Within. With several other big movies lined up, Zoe's star is most certainly on the rise, but there was a time when landing the good roles wasn't quite so easy.
In an interview with Nylon the actress recalls losing out on an audition for The Dark Knight Rises, seemingly based on her racial background and nothing else. “In the last Batman movie, they told me that I couldn’t get an audition for a small role they were casting because they weren’t ‘going urban,’” she says. “It was like, ‘What does that have to do with anything?’ I have to play the role like, ‘Yo, what’s up, Batman? What’s going on wit chu?’”
Chances are this was the role of Catwoman's sidekick Juno Temple wound up playing. For the full interview click the link below, and we also have the snaps from Zoe's shoot with Nylon for you to take a look at.
