Rowan Blanchard Opens Up About Becoming Aware of Feminism and Politics
Rowan Blanchard looks beautiful on film on the cover of Nylon‘s May issue, available now.
Here’s what the 15-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On who she credits for her developing feminism and politic awareness: “I really owe everything that I do to teenagers on Tumblr who were considerate enough to teach other people about things — not like the Susan B. Anthonys, but, like, Adrienne Rich and Angela Davis.”
On not feeling pressure to change her image now that she’s not on Disney Channel: “I knew the show would end someday, and I didn’t want there to be this weird part where it was like, good girl, good girl, good girl, and then, all of a sudden, bam, she’s going to show her boobs.”
On how proud she is to be cast in her upcoming movie, A Wrinkle in Time: “To be validated like that was very assuring. People hesitate to see me because I was on the Disney Channel and it’s fake acting or whatever.”
