Blanchett

Actor

Two-time Oscar winner Blanchett can play everything from a supervillain (“Thor: Ragnarok”) to a crook (“Ocean’s Eight”) to an actual snake (“Mowgli”). But as the #MeToo movement took hold, she stepped into the role of advocate as well, speaking frankly in interviews and in an impassioned speech at the 2018 Cannes Festival, where she helped lead a Women’s March even as she served as jury president. Her film work, meanwhile, continues unabated, with roles in the creaky fantasy adaptation “The House with a Clock in Its Walls” and as the anxious title character in Richard Linklater’s starry adaptation “Where’d You Go, Bernadette.” On the horizon: She’ll play Lucille Ball in Aaron Sorkin’s “Lucy and Desi,” which is in development with Amazon. She was named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador in 2016.
