Last summer we all saw her beating up the bad guys as the Black Widow in the movie the Avengers. It was a real career change for an actress who has been known as a Hollywood sex symbol. Now you can see her on Broadway where she is the main attraction to her show in which she also is receiving proceeds from the profits there. For about two and a half months she will be appearing at the Richard Rogers Theater. The 28 year old actress is taking on the dramatic role as Maggie in the Tennessee Williams Play Cat On A Hot Tim Roof.
Johanasson is only being paid $40 thousand per week for all that drama plus a percentage of the box office which means that the show needs to sell a lot of tickets. With her name on the sign out front the tickets are hard to find; the show is doing well. Who doesn’t want to see those full kissing lips up close and personal in a sexy dramatic live show? Ok, I know I sound creepy now. It is not her first appearance on Broadway. In 2010 she won a Tony Award for her performance in Arthur Miller’s A View From The Bridge.
She was just 9 years old when she acted in her first movie called North in 1994. She really got Hollywood’s attention when she played a teenage amputee in Robert Redford’s film The Horse Whisperer. By age 17 she landed her first adult role when she played a lonely 25 year old newlywed. Her job was to fall in love with an aging film star. Only six days after filming, she began her work on Girl With A Pearl Earring where she became a sexy actress.
