Watch a Young Jennifer Lawrence Sing in a High School Shakespeare Play
CNN recently released never-before-seen footage of the Oscar winner, then 14, acting in a high school production of William Shakespeare’s Othello. Playing Desdemona, Lawrence sang a little ditty in front of a crowd at the Walden Theatre in Louisville, Ky., in the video.
“She was precocious. She was energetic,” Charlie Sexton, a director at the Walden Theatre, recalled to the network. “She had to sing a cappella and that’s not easy to do.”
He added, “She was determined. Unflappable.”
Watch her performance in the video above.
