GMA: Mia Wasikowska & Matthew Goode Stoker
Lawless‘ Mia Wasikowska and Leap Year‘s Matthew Goode stopped by Good Morning America February 28 2013 to talk about their new movie with Nicole Kidman, Stoker. Matthew Goode plays the mysterious uncle of Mia Wasikowska’s character. His character has been traveling for a long time, but the audience finds out later that might not be the case.
Mia Wasikowska said there’s also a love triangle between their three characters, which I’ll go ahead and admit is weird, because Nicole Kidman is playing Mia Wasikowska’s character’s mother. And Matthew Goode, as I’ve said, plays the uncle. So…that’s odd.

Actor Colin Firth, from Bridget Jones’ Diary and the BBC production of Pride & Prejudice, originally had Matthew Goode’s role, but he had to drop out because he became too busy. Matthew Goode said he immediately went for the role because he loved the script.
