MAGIC ACT In next year's Beautiful Creatures—a big-screen adaptation of the best-selling book—Alice plays Lena, "a girl who has control over the elements" and is persecuted by the "small-minded" residents of her town. "I sort of saw her as the suffragette of the supernatural world," she says. (First, she's a 1960s schoolgirl, with Elle Fanning, in Ginger and Rosa.)
FAMILY BUSINESS Alice's father is a producer, and her mother is the writer-director Jane Campion, so she grew up on film sets. "They were supportive yet also sane, so they warned me that this can be a very hard industry. But they couldn't scare me off!"
