We were lucky enough to have bathed in the vicinity of the presence of the essence of Cate Blanchett on the red carpet of the 3rd Annual AACTA Awards in Sydney last month. And though no interview was forthcoming – The Award Winning Gilded One had matters more officious to attend to – we did manage to speak to the lessers in attendance. The question? What dream role do you wish you had gotten? A: An interview with Cate Blanchett.

Your cast includes Tasma Walton (Mystery Road), Rove McManus (Tuesday nights, 9:30 in your nostalgia vault), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby), David Wenham (The Turning, 300, Lord Of The Rings), Lachy Hulme (Power Games: The Packer-Murdoch War, Howzat! Kerry Packer’s War), Bindi Irwin (Growing before our eyes), Delta Goodrem (Born to try), Sarah Snook (Not Suitable For Children, Sleeping Beauty), Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek, Snakes on a Plane) and the best CB stand-in we could have hoped for, Deborah Mailman.
