Even Hunger Games
heroine Jennifer Lawrence had to start somewhere - namely, on the small stage of a student theater in Louisville, Kentucky.
Before she was shooting arrows, winning Oscars and basically charming the collective pants off of the American public
, the 24-year-old actress was a teenage headliner, starring as doomed-damsel Desdemona in a 2005 production of Shakespeare's Othello
by the Walden Theater. A short clip of the performance, recently released by CNN
, shows a 14-year-old Lawrence sitting center-stage in a fancy white dress, speaking what sounds like Middle Italian (actually Shakespearean English combined with very bad audio) in tragic tones. Later she’s seen belting “The Willow Song” - quite sad in the original text, here; adorable - and simultaneously making everyone in the theater fall in love with her. Or was that just me?
