Yes, that’s the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo herself, Rooney Mara’s, older sister. And by the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo I’m talking about David Fincher’s version, not the Swedish one, so relax… Anyway, Kate Mara is by no means a new face, but she’s going to get some well-deserved recognition in the near future with her upcoming role in the blockbuster update of The Fantastic Four, starring as the Invisible Woman, filling in Ms. Jessica Alba’s shoes. The new Fantastic Four also stars a young cast of fresh faces including: Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell and is set for release June 19, 2015. In addition to her role in the Marvel reboot, Mara will also star in the sequel to the film and the drama Captive.
You may recognize Mara from her scene-stealing role in “American Horror Story” as Hayden, the mistress of Dylan McDermott’s Ben Harmon. She is also in the wildly-acclaimed Netflix series “House of Cards” alongside Kevin Spacey, has starred with James Franco in 127 Hours, and with Channing Tatum and Oscar Isaac in the underrated and entertaining reunion film 10 Years. With her role in The Fantastic Four and her versatility on the big and small screen in acclaimed series, blockbuster films, and indie gems, Mara is much more than Rooney’s older sister.
