Zoe Wanamaker struggles for her movie roles. She is an American born English actress, and she had a long time role as Susan Harper in the sitcom My Family and she admits as she ages, it his a difficult process in finding work.
The sixty four year old reveals that she face some problems getting any kind of part in her advancing years and accepted the realization that directors prefer younger stars as they are more attractive. She also performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company in the film the Harry Potter series and she tells,
Britain’s Radio Times magazine,
“It is difficult to get work as I age but it is always thus… Even Shakespeare stopped writing about women while his men aged. The young look nicer but older women are more interesting with more to offer and better stories to tell.”
The actress compares her dilemma to that faced by ageing politicians, adding,
“It’s similar in politics, there aren’t many women because they find the fighting a bit galling and give up. It’s a man’s club and that must be difficult.
“I hope it will change because women’s voices are very important and they are, sweeping generalisation, better at judging people as human beings.
