Angourie Rice has starred in Marvel blockbusters and critically acclaimed films directed by the likes of Sofia Coppola, yet she still feels like she never left high school.
After playing Betty Brant in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starring opposite Kate Winslet in Mare of Easttown and Nicole Kidman in The Beguiled, the 22-year-old Australian actress has carved out an impressive legacy in Hollywood since the early days of her career that began more than a decade ago in Western Australia.

In the film, Angourie takes on the role of Cady Heron, first immortalised on screen by Lindsay Lohan, a formerly homeschooled high school student who returns to the United States after living in Africa and discovers the savage nature of high school politics.
Much like every other young woman with access to a streaming service, Angourie grew up watching Mean Girls, with the iconic lines from the film seared into her brain as the movie continued to find new audiences since premiering 20 years ago.
