Four years ago, those following Olivia Cooke’s career might have thought she was verging on being typecast. The British actor hit the U.S. market at 18 with a turn on the quasi-“Psycho” prequel “Bates Motel” as Emma, the dark show’s shot of empathy offsetting a deranged family dynamic. Even in a supporting role, Cooke was touted as the show’s most underutilized asset and rode the series’ disquieting tone into castings in horror films “The Quiet Ones” and “The Signal.” Within a couple of years, she’d built a “scream queen” reputation that landed her her first lead in a feature with 2014’s “Ouija.” She was a genre star on the rise.

Looking back, Cooke can pinpoint the exact shift that took her career beyond what her résumé credits suggested was possible. “ ‘[Me and Earl and the] Dying Girl’—that was a choice. That was something that was thoughtful,” she says of her breakout performance in the 2015 Sundance hit. At the time, Hollywood seemed full up on “teen cancer dramas” (“The Fault in Our Stars” and “Endless Love” had premiered the year prior), but Cooke received raves as a high school senior who, after being diagnosed with leukemia, develops a deeply loving but platonic relationship with a pair of novice filmmakers.

Until fairly recently, she admits, she’d gravitated toward that sort of sentimental character. “The elements of myself that I was able to give [to those emotional roles]…was something I could offer up really easily. The friendships that were built around that story, that was something where I could easily become that version of myself.”

As an actor, Cooke has no formal training (she auditioned for RADA and made it to the final round), instead using the parts she plays as training grounds. Now, she’s ready to up the ante and play the other side of the coin—in the form of a borderline psychopathic teen named Amanda.

Her character in the forthcoming Sundance hit “Thoroughbreds” is so devoid of feeling that she’s learned to mimic others’ emotional responses so as not to raise suspicions. Out March 9, the noir reinvents the femme fatale trope for a new generation as it follows estranged childhood friends Amanda and Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy, “The Witch”) who, after a contrived reunion, hatch a plan to murder Lily’s stepfather. As they begin to develop an adult sense of ethics, Amanda and Lily face off like opposing reflections of a privileged upbringing; as a primped-to-the-nines boarding school brat who looks like she uses “vacation” as a verb, Taylor-Joy’s Lily stands practically glinting opposite the bedraggled Amanda. The two emerge, after wildly entertaining sparring matches, with a cold, calculated execution involving blackmail, a drug dealer (played by the late, ever-brilliant Anton Yelchin), a gun, and, unexpectedly, a lamp.

Set primarily in Lily’s palatial Connecticut home, the film employs long takes that showcase a level of skill Cooke hinted at in the final scene of “Dying Girl.” The tracking shots, courtesy of “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” cinematographer Lyle Vincent, move almost viper-like to craft the film’s gratifying tension-building sequences. (The mansion’s sprawling layout, multiple inlaid fireplaces, and immense wine cellar make for such an intriguing backdrop, one almost wishes for more time to gawk.)

It was after seeing her work in “Dying Girl” that “Thoroughbreds” writer-director Cory Finley offered Cooke the part of Amanda. Impeccable timing and a killer deadpan were required skills for anyone playing a person who says things like “Sometimes I feel hungry or tired, but, like, joy? Guilt? I really don’t have any of those” with a straight face.

“I think Amanda came at a time where I think I was a little bit sick of myself and sick of being so hyper-emotional all the time,” Cooke says. “[She] was the total opposite, and I think that the beauty of doing this film is that on the page it seems really difficult [to play]. The manipulation and the pretense of emotion, it was something…I was really turned on by.” The character’s undiagnosed mental disorder meant Cooke never stuck to any specific illness in her early research and preparation. “I wanted to play various shades—the brain is so complex—and [stay] slightly open.”

Finley worked extensively with his actors to develop the way the characters think and speak—“There are just certain actors who make your dialogue sound really smart,” he says of his casting—but it was the actors who added nuance to their physicality. “In our very first meeting, [Cooke] was talking about how she imagined her posture and her walk,” Finley recalls, “and when I watch the movie now, it’s one of my favorite aspects in her performance: She sort of trudges through rooms. Anya’s character really glides and Olivia is earthbound.”

Very much the opposite of Amanda will be Cooke’s “Thoroughbreds” follow-up: Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated motion-capture/live-action blockbuster fantasy “Ready Player One,” out March 29. Set on 2045’s resource-stripped Earth, where a virtual world called OASIS simultaneously provides an artificially constructed escape and a very real emotional experience, Cooke plays both the CGI avatar of protagonist Parzival’s crush, Art3mis, and the real-life person behind her. The best-selling novel-turned-film follows Parzival’s perilous quest for an Easter egg hidden by OASIS’ creator upon his death; whoever finds it will inherit his fortune and the proverbial keys to the kingdom.

Playing a CGI character proved another acting exercise Cooke had never before encountered. “All I had to do was put a helmet on,” she remembers about one scene in particular, “so, I just went like that”—she demonstrates a slapdash lowering of her open hands on either side of her head—“[I did it like] I was brushing away a cobweb! [Motion capture actor Josh Jefferies] was like, ‘No. No. Imagine holding the helmet and putting your head through it and the struggle to get your head in the helmet.’ And I was just like, ‘Oh, fuck.’ These are things that you just don’t think about! You’re a mime artist, essentially. You really have to study it and think on your feet and understand what your body’s portraying and how that’s going to translate into an animated world.”

Also fresh in her mind is the first note Spielberg gave her on set: “I was trying to do a really nuanced performance, trying to pull out all the stops,” she says sardonically, “and then Steven was like, ‘Olivia, you’re going to have to be a bit bigger because we literally can’t see what you’re doing on the head camera.’

“And then I went to the bathroom and I just couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t pull down my [motion capture] suit because it was so tight. So I ended up being folded over, having nearly a panic attack trying to get out of this thing. I was like, ‘It’s fine. He hates me.’ It was mental.”

The actor’s ability to poke fun at herself while starring in a tentpole film like “Ready Player One” is part of what makes Cooke’s success feel so genuine. Even at this level of the game, she jokes about having imposter syndrome. “I never went to drama school. People just trusted me to do these jobs and I didn’t know anything! People were talking about all these cult classic films or staples of cinema history, and I was lying through my teeth that I’d seen all of them, because for all my life I’d grown up with ‘The Sound of Music’ and ‘The Lizzie McGuire Movie.’ ”

Admittedly, she didn’t expect her move to the States and career rise to happen so quickly. “I had no propulsion to come to the U.S. I was just looking for the next job.” Her motivation was always the work, she says, never fame, but it’s an inevitable byproduct of achievements in this business. As we wrap up our lunch in Lower Manhattan, a fan of “Bates Motel” recognizes her and approaches us. He’s sad that the five-season series she’d been on since the age of 18 has ended. “I’m not,” she says. “Now I can live my life and play all the different parts I want.”

From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science fiction action adventure “Ready Player One,” based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name, which has become a worldwide phenomenon.

The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.

Spielberg directed the film from a screenplay by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline. The film was produced by Donald De Line, Spielberg, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah; with Adam Somner, Daniel Lupi, Chris DeFaria and Bruce Berman serving as executive producers.

“Ready Player One” stars Tye Sheridan (“X-Men: Apocalypse,” “Mud”), Olivia Cooke (“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” “Bates Motel”), Ben Mendelsohn (“Rogue One – A Star Wars Story,” “Bloodline”) and T.J. Miller (“Deadpool,” “Silicon Valley”), with Simon Pegg (the “Star Trek” movies, the “Mission: Impossible” movies) and Oscar winner Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies,” upcoming “Dunkirk”).

Behind the scenes, three-time Oscar winner Spielberg (“Schindler’s List,” “Saving Private Ryan”) reunited his creative team from “Bridge of Spies,” including Oscar-winning director of photography Janusz Kaminski (“Schindler’s List,” “Saving Private Ryan”), Oscar-winning production designer Adam Stockhausen (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”), Oscar-winning editor Michael Kahn (“Saving Private Ryan,” “Raiders of the Lost Ark”) and Sarah Broshar (“The Post”), and costume designer Kasia Walicka-Maimone (“Moonrise Kingdom”). The music is by Oscar-nominated composer Alan Silvestri (the “Back to the Future” films, “Forrest Gump”).

Warner Bros. Pictures and Amblin Entertainment present, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, an Amblin Production, a De Line Pictures Production, a Steven Spielberg Film, “Ready Player One.”

Slated for release on March 30, 2018, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.

On Friday, screenwriter Zak Penn (X-Men: The Last Stand, The Incredible Hulk), who rewrote Ernie Cline’s Ready Player One screenplay (based on Cline’s best-selling sci-fi novel of the same name), revealed that the first week of filming on the Steven Spielberg-directed movie has been completed.

“First week of #ReadyPlayerOne finished,” Penn posted on Twitter. “Surreal. It went to 11. Thanks for writing your book @erniecline and the assist in Oology” The post was met with an enthusiastic reply from Cline, who tweeted, “My pleasure, Zak! So insanely excited for my set visit!”

The cast features Tye Sheridan as Wade Watts, Olivia Cooke as Art3mis, Simon Pegg as Orgen Morrow, Ben Mendelsohn as Nolan Sorento, T.J. Miller as i-R0k, Win Morisaki as Daito, and Mark Rylance as James Donovan Halliday.

A teenager named Wade Watts decides to take it on after millions have failed over many years. The key to winning the game is a plethora of pop culture clues from the 1980s. Whomever figures it out and wins the game — without having their avatars killed in the process — takes over the entire OASIS empire.

Three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg (“Schindler’s List,” “Saving Private Ryan”) is directing Ready Player One. The film is being produced by Spielberg; Donald De Line, under his De Line Pictures banner; Dan Farah; and Spielberg’s longtime colleague Kristie Macosko Krieger; with Bruce Berman serving as executive producer.

Ready Player One will open in theaters on March 30, 2018.

Steven Spielberg’s ‘Ready Player One’ Finds Female Lead in Olivia Cooke

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow are behind the movie, which adapts the best-selling sci-fi novel by Ernie Cline.

Olivia Cooke, who starred in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, has nabbed the female lead in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One and is in negotiations.

Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow are behind the movie, which adapts the best-selling sci-fi novel by Ernie Cline, and is in the thick of searching for its stars.

The story is set in a virtual world called Oasis, in which a teenager finds himself competing in a treasure hunt against ruthless foes after the game’s founder dies and offers his fortune as the grand prize.

Spielberg has been reading actors in Los Angeles and New York with the hope of finding both the male and female leads at the same time. That hasn’t happened and the hunt for the male continues, though Cooke rose to the top after tests that included Elle Fanning and Lola Kirke (Mozart in the Jungle, Gone Girl).

If a deal is made, Cooke would play the teen’s love interest and competitor, a Canadian blogger named Sam whose name in the virtual world is Art3mis.

Warners had no comment, and calls to Cooke’s representatives, Gersh and Luber Roklin Entertainment, were not immediately returned.

Spielberg is producing with Donald De Line, Kristie Macosko Krieger and Dan Farah.

The role is major breakthrough for Cooke, a rising talent who’s been working mostly in the indie world, while also appearing on A&E’s Bates Motel. She received a big career boost with Dying Girl, the indie that won the Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and was picked up Fox Searchlight.

While the movie wasn’t the hit the studio hoped for, it lifted Cooke’s profile as one of the key actresses of the new generation. Not only did it put her into contention for Spielberg’s latest tentpole, but her name has surfaced as being on the shortlist for one of the Star Wars movies.

Steven Spielberg’s ‘Ready Player One’ Eyes Elle Fanning, Lola Kirke and Olivia Cooke for Lead

IIn addition to being on the shortlist for a leading role in Star Wars: Episode 8, rising star Olivia Cooke is also on a shortlist for another major upcoming film: Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ernest Cline’s nostalgia-driven novel Ready Player One. Cooke is currently in contention for the role along with Elle Fanning and Mistress America newcomer Lola Kirke.

Kind of a big day for shortlists, as The Wrap reports that the three actresses are in the running to play the leading role in Ready Player One. Cooke is best known for her roles in Bates Motel and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, while Kirke recently broke out with a leading role in Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig’s Mistress America. Fanning, meanwhile, has a ton of upcoming projects, including the transgender teen drama About Ray, Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon, and Ben Affleck’s Live by Night.

Ready Player One takes place in the year 2044, when the creator of a virtual utopia known as OASIS dies and bequeaths his empire to whichever player can successfully complete a treasure hunt. The novel is built entirely on nostalgia and pop culture references — particularly video game references — making it a bit of a tricky adaptation given the various licensing hurdles involved.

It also doesn’t seem like the sort of movie that would attract Spielberg, as it’s the kind of movie that would be directed by someone trying to ape Spielberg’s work. It’s a bit surprising that the director has yet to back out of the project, but with the casting process already begun it appears that Spielberg is still very committed.
