Watch: Conversations with Rooney Mara of ‘Carol’

Much was made out of whether or not Rooney Mara‘s significant role in the drama Carol should have been considered a “supporting” role considering she was the second-billed actor in the film. As a result, her nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress was met with some grumbling and it’s possible that it hurt Mara’s chances (she ultimately did not win the Oscar). However, that controversy had no real bearing on Mara’s strong performance in the film, which is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

In this in-depth conversation presented by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation moderated by Joe McGovern of Entertainment Weekly, Mara talks about the challenges of playing a young woman having an affair with an older woman in the 1950s.

You can watch the full conversation above.
