Residence AndoverWhat did you wear for your audition for Moonrise Kingdom?
I just came in a pair of leggings, Uggs, and a sweater.I heard you did your own makeup for the film.
I did.And do you still wear a lot of blue eye shadow?
Not much. But sometimes I will put on a little. I can’t help it, I love it.You’re still in school in Andover?
I’m still going to school in the same place.How has your life changed day to day? Do you ever get recognized?
Sometimes. I was in the mall the other day, and someone came up to me in a store and said, “Are you that girl?”And you just finished another movie.
It’s called The Sisterhood of Night. It’s with [actress] Georgie Henley of The Chronicles of Narnia and Kal Penn from the Harold & Kumar films, and it was so much fun. In July, I’ve got The Optimist, directed by Jerry Levine.How are you balancing school and your acting career?
I do have to miss a little bit of school, but as long as I get back and catch up, it’s all fine.Do you have any favorite academic subjects?
English, definitely English. I love to write.What do you like to wear?
I’m pretty casual, but I’m starting to obsess a little bit, like one of my favorite things to do is to pair really feminine accessories with edgier outfits or vice versa. I’m starting to find my own style. — Rachel Raczka
