“I have a sense of dread,” Ms Lawrence said in an interview on Thursday.
“Because I think we need to do something to help the people who are really struggling.”
It’s not about being a big star, it’s about being an ordinary person.
“Ms Lawrence has become a vocal advocate for the need for more women to perform at the awards, which are usually attended by male stars.
The awards are an annual celebration of the best work in British film and television, and take place on the evening of December 1st, the day after the Christmas and New Year holidays.”
We have to do everything we can to help people who have gone through a very difficult time,” Ms Lawson said.”
If we’re going to be able to help with a sense that we’re still in the same world as the people in the audience and not the same thing as the person who is standing behind us, then we’ve got to do that.
“Ms Lawson has also been invited on to the 2017 BAFTA Awards’ first night to talk about her work, but she said the invitation was “not a big deal”.”
It makes me realise how lucky I am to be in this industry. “
It’s just another one of the big challenges I’ve had.”
“It makes me realise how lucky I am to be in this industry.
It makes me realize I’m not alone in this.
I’m part of a community that’s really good at showing that.”‘
We can’t just do this’A number of leading female actors have also taken part in Baftas this year, including Julie Walters, Helen Mirren and Emma Thompson.
“You don’t really know the people you’re working with,” Ms Walters said.
Ms Thompson, who starred in the film The Help and was nominated for the best actress award, said the awards were a chance for people to “look at themselves and say, ‘Wow, I’m really proud of who I am’.”
“I think people are really keen to say that they’re not afraid of change,” she told ABC News Radio.
“This is the biggest event in our country, it has the biggest impact on the world.”ABC/wires
