Christina Ricci Always Thought She Would Get Better Roles As She Got Older!

Christina Ricci Always Thought She Would Get Better Roles As She Got Older!

Christina Ricci has been in the film industry for nearly three decades, but she admits that she always knew the better roles would come once she got older.

“I thought I would do better as I got older. In my 20s, I wasn’t really considered a romantic lead, but I was also not character-actressy enough. It was a weird position. I was so young-looking,” the 36-year-old actress recently told The Guardian.

“They still don’t like to cast me in anything where I have to be a professional,” Christina added. “They’re like, ‘It’s not believable.’ I’ve been waiting to get older so I could get parts. I’ve never just been offered good or interesting things. I’ve always had to go after things and, in this case (referring to her szhow Z: The Beginning of Everything), create my own work.”

Pictured: Christina with her co-stars David Hoflin, Holly Curran, Natalie Knepp, Christina Bennett Loind, Sarah Schenkkan, AJ Cedeno, Andrew Call, Lucy Walters, Jordan Dean, Joel Brady and special guest Frankie Grande at the premiere of Z: The Beginning of Everything on Wednesday (January 25) in New York City.

New episodes of Z: The Beginning of Everything will be available on Friday (January 27) on Amazon Prime – Watch the trailer below!
