Abbey and Rosie play two of five slaves who find themselves on the run with Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa and Tom Hardy’s Mad Max. The film will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday and early reviews have been astonishingly positive.
“One of the first things George [Miller, the director] ever said to use was that the film has a real feminist streak running through it, and that was one of the most exciting things about working on this film,” reveals Rosie.
“You don’t often see the heroes or the heart of the film being women.”
Australian model-turned-actress Abbey added: “Especially to have Charlize, who is tough as nails, to be the mother duck of it all is a good change.”
Also featuring Nicholas Hoult andRiley Keough, the film is directed by George Miller, the mastermind behind the original 1979 film.
Fans were hugely impressed with the stunning yet violent trailer which launched in early April, and which doesn’t appear to be relying heavily on computer-generated effects.
“It’s always overwhelming making a film,” says Rosie, who made her big screen debut in 2011’s Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon.
“We all helped each other out, we were lucky to all have each other,” she added.
“It was either freezing hot or boiling hot, dust storms, and very isolating… but it helps for your characters, for building character emotion throughout the whole film.”
