Cate Blanchett Covers 'Gotham' Summer 2012

Cate Blanchett graces the cover of Gotham‘s Summer issue.

Here’s what the 43-year-old Aussie actress had to share:

On bringing Uncle Vanya to NYC: “It’s an absolute privilege, and it’s wonderful to be juxtaposed against all the other extraordinary things that you program for the Lincoln Center Festival. Often when theater is talked about in New York, it is talked about as if it were a sort of homogeneous blob. There are so many different types of audiences in New York, and we are very excited to be there in a festival context because it generates a way of looking for an audience that’s very different than if we were doing a four-month run.”

On the differences between theater in New York and Australia: “Film is such an international medium, and our sporting prowess is well understood internationally, but I think, on a diplomatic level it does diversify the perception of what Australia is capable of culturally. That was a big ambition for [husband] Andrew [Upton] and me when we returned to Australia to lead the company. We knew from direct experience the depth of talent in Australia, and it was a big ambition for us to get the work out.”
