  • Anonymous

    She’s the girl from Showtime’s “In Treatment”!!

  • elizabeth

    I always wanted someone to make a creepy, adult version of Alice in Wonderland, as the true story is quite the wierd one. Tim Burton is the perfect director for it!

  • Emilia

    i liiike.. :) can’t wait.

  • Desireé

    THANK GOD IT WASN’T LINDSAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • sweetie

    She is so cute and an amazing actress! She’s great on “In Treatment.” I never thought I’d see her on Just Jared! Wow, thanks, Jared!

  • Renae

    quite pretty!

  • Amber

    she is so cute!!

  • Mariana

    she’s the girl from In Treatment! she’s a great actress!! yay!

  • eh

    cant wait for the movie.

  • Donna

    Well, she doesn’t look the part.

  • mandy

    #3: i really think that’s nick jonas!
    at minute 1:47-1:50 sge holds a picture of her and some boy!
    but why is his face cover with some drawing!? To hide his face maybe!
    so if that isnt nick she wouldn’t cover his face!

  • Rach

    Pretty cute! Adorable video!

  • sue

    Horendous! lol What kind of movie is this? Cartoon!?

  • t

    sounds awesome, love everything tim does

  • Elusive Silence

    Tim Burton’s version of Alice and Wonderland!! If this will be a dark version, as we all are accustomed as how Sir Burton does to his films, I bet this can have Gaiman’s “Neverwhere” feel to it. Can’t wait!

  • Helena

    She’s a younger looking version of Gwyneth Paltrow! It’s good that Burton’s gone for an unknown, though I personally would’ve like Saoirse Ronan.

  • v

    Arent they already making a creepy ALice in Wonderland with Mischa Barton??
    I dont know who this Aussie actress is. What’s she been in? Im form Australia and Ive never heard of her.

  • v

    Gosh, just read on IMDb she’s even from the same CIty as me. And its a tiny city considering its the capital. Everyone seems to know eachother.

  • v

    Wow she’s a good little actress.

  • Ha!

    Never seen her act, but by the pictures, she definitely is Alice.

  • Miss::CulleN

    i thought Sarah Michelle Gellar was gonna play Alice… :/ perhaps she´s too old for the part, right?

    i love SMG :( too bad that she won´t be in the movie! but i´m foward to see this production, very excited!!

  • bia

    Dude I watch her in ”In Treatment” as Sophie and all I can say is… kick ass actress right there!

    Nice to see her in some new roles… she so cute!

  • Elle

    Blah! WHy did they get some nobody?

  • jess

    She’s great… amazing on In Treatment :) Definitely looking forward to seeing this version of Alice in Wonderland!

  • kris

    they have to start somewhere to be somebody! With that being said, ashley tisdale would be a good alice.

  • Laura

    Does she ever smile showing teeth?

  • Shannon

    Umm… isn’t Alice supposed to be like, 10 or something? In the novels, she’s young enough to be bored by books that don’t have pictures or illustrations in them. Why’s an 18 year old playing her? I don’t get it.

  • Shannon

    Oh wait, maybe it was books without “conversations” that she didn’t like. Regardless, she’s still supposed to be a young child.

  • carly

    She is not cute. But I love Time so I will probably see this movie.

  • kamila

    I am totally happy for Mia Wasikowska. Anyone who watches her on “In Treatment” knows that she is an AMAZING actress. It’s great to see her working with great directors like Tim Burton, Edward Zwick and Mira Nair. She is going far!

  • wmd

    ehhh…I was more excited about the Amanda Seyfried casting rumor. This Mia girl looks like she’s been on a ten day heroin binge..but then again, I guess Burton liked that. I still say Seyfried would have made a better Alice. She looks the part for one thing, and I think she has the acting depth too. Oh well, I’m sure I’ll still check this out.

  • mojo

    She is so talented, good for her!

  • tee

    Wow, Mr. Burton’s really got a type. Waifish with darker blonde hair and dark eyes.

  • victoria

    I never heard of her, but she is cute. I think she will do a good job. What else has she done? She reminds me of a younger Gwenth.

  • kamila

    Victoria, Mia has done the first season of “In Treatment”, a HBO series. She plays Sophie and she is an amazing actress.

    Here’s a clip of her acting on You Tube:

  • ♥ZanessaFan4Lyfe♥

    Thanks Mandy :)

  • Helena

    Ashley Tisdale as Alice? Please tell me you’re kidding?

  • Janey

    Shannon I don’t get it either. Even if they wanted the movie to have a darker feel they could still have used a young child. I just can’t see Alice in Wonderland with an 18 year old.

  • Maire o’ nette

    I’ve heard she is a goog actress but she certainly looks NOTHING like Alice. Also, Alice is only 12! She’s a little girl! She isn’t an adult! Again, Alice is from England not AUSTRALIA! Honestly, Tim, you could have found someone alot younger, alot more like Alice, and if not YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE STOP ANIMATION!

  • too old

    She’s too old for the part!

  • http://htt Sonea

    Well shes suppose to be that old in the movie its based on Alice when shes 17!!!
