Cate Blanchett seems to be an elegant and sensible woman. She holds in her tender hands two Oscars, one Golden Globe and many other prestigious awards the other actresses can just dream about.
Cate’s fate was not easy from the very beginning. She became strong in her 10, after a sudden father’s illness and his departure. She and was brought up by a single mother, who worked 24 hours per day to support her three children (Blanchett has a brother and a sister).
In her teens Blanchett was a lucky combination of beauty and intelligence. She was a great pupil and since her school years took part in various performances.
After graduating from school she spent several years, travelling around the world. In Egypt she played her first role. The young girl had no money and that’s why agreed to play in a crowd scene in the movie, which was shot in the hotel she resided.
That episode inspired Cate to study acting professionally. After graduation from Drama University, young Blanchett has become a theater actress.
