One of this country’s most interesting actors – Tomorrow, When the War Began, Puberty Blues, Hounds of Love, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries – will next be seen in John Crowley’s highly anticipated adaptation of Donna Tartt’s popular book The Goldfinch, in which she plays Pippa, the lead character Theo’s (Ansel Elgort) unrequited love.
