McIver learns from best

New Zealand actress Rose McIver, 22, plays the younger sister to Saoirse Ronan in Peter Jackson’s thriller The Lovely Bones. Teen Hollywood talks to McIver about working with stars Ronan, 15, and Susan Sarandon. “Susan is fantastic,” McIver said. “I think she pushed me to see how far it could go. She’s such a professional and has a lot of experience I feel like I learned a lot from working with her.” Asked what most impressed her about working on the film, McIver said: “Just working with such high calibre people; leaders in their fields; crew and cast. I loved how they really get down to work and they are actors’ actors but still a very down-to-earth bunch of people.” McIver plays the lusted-after Maybelle in the movie Predicament, an adaption of the book written by late Hawera author Ronald Hugh Morrieson.
