The 5 Year Plan

Rose Byrne STARRING IN THE 1930s LOVE STORY 'I CAPTURE THE CASTLE'

5 YEARS AGO ''I'd just finished high school. My friends and I went to a folk festival in the Glasshouse Mountains. We spent a week camping. It's amazing. You live and breathe the music and the food...so hippielike! And it was very hot. Like 100 degrees.''

NOW ''I Capture the Castle is gorgeous, just beautiful. It has some of the producers from Wings of the Dove and Shakespeare in Love, so it's of that ilk. It's so exciting to do a period drama. I got to use an accent, I had an amazing hairdo.... It was like a fantasy.''

5 YEARS FROM NOW ''I want to say that I've done something on the West End or Broadway, but it's hard to break into theater with just a green card. I also want to live in a part of the world...like Italy. It's the warmest, maddest, most chaotic country.''
