Jessica Chastain shares the same birthday as myself lucky lady really it is a great day, she is a two time Oscar nominated actress and today I will be picking my favourite five roles.
In what is a dark horror fantasy romantic drama Lucille is a supporting character that really stays on the side-lines until the very important twist in the story. This is very different to the rest of the performance I have selected.
Murph is the daughter of Cooper that has a brilliant mind like him who believes he abandoned her to die on Earth while trying to find an answer. I think the Murph character doesn’t get the praise she deserves because we have to deal with everything Cooper is doing Murph’s story almost gets forgotten.
Melissa is the captain on the mission to Mars who has to make the difficult decision to leave Mark behind believing he has been killed. Melissa has a terrible taste in music but more importantly gives us a strong female character having to make the big decision.
Maya is trying to track down Bin Laden after the 9/11 attacks, she is based on the real person and Jessica makes this role her own.
Samantha is the long suffering wife of Curtis who has to deal with his theory the world is going to end. This is a strange pick for number one but this is one of my favourite films.
