Mia Wasikowska, Tracks



Mia Wasikowska steps into the sturdy shoes of Robyn Davidson, the young woman who, in 1977, walked 1,700 miles across Western Australia’s vast desert with just four camels and a dog, and emerged a national heroine. Tracks, a perennial autobiographical bestseller about her journey, is now a John Curran (The Painted Veil) film, with Wasikowska carrying the role on her slender shoulders. The Aussie native describes meeting Davidson, working with camels, and what acting means when you’re nearly 25 (on Oct. 14) and you’ve already been doing it for ten years.
