Welcome to Mackenzie Davis Fan, your #1 source for info, news, and photos of extraordinarily talented Canadian actress Mackenzie Davis. She stars as Cameron Howe in AMC's Halt and Catch Fire and recently appeared in the "San Junipero" episode of Netflix's Black Mirror. Mackenzie just finished filming Blade Runner 2049 and Tully, and her newest film, Always Shine is on Video on Demand now!

Mackenzie is featured as one of the five stars in Interview‘s ‘Youth in Revolt’ cover stories. She is interviewed by her best friend (and Editor-in-Chief) Nick Haramis for the June/July 2017 issue.

Mackenzie Davis is lying next to me in a bed at the Bowery Hotel in downtown New York. She has taken off her pleated skirt to get a bit more comfortable and is uncorking a bottle of white wine with the precision of a master sommelier. We swore we wouldn’t drink—as a rule, it’s best not to mix alcohol and interviews—but then again, this interview isn’t exactly normal for either of us.

A native of Vancouver, Davis studied English at McGill University in Montreal—which is where we met and quickly became friends. Even then, her dream was to make movies, and she spent much of those earlier years honing her craft with secret acting classes and in school plays. Shortly after graduating, she moved to New York and stepped into the revolving door that’s so familiar to aspiring stars: auditions, in person and on tape; meetings and callbacks and screen tests; and the inevitable, “They decided to go with someone a little more established.”

Then, in 2011, Davis met the director Drake Doremus, who, following the critical success of the romantic millennial movie Like Crazy (2011), cast her alongside Felicity Jones, Guy Pearce, and Amy Ryan in the largely improvised family drama Breathe In (2013). As a young woman grappling with her father’s infidelity, Davis conveyed anger, jealousy, and a wide-eyed innocence—sometimes all at once, without even saying a word. Offers began to roll in, not quickly but steadily, across genres: a romantic comedy (That Awkward Moment, 2014, with Zac Efron and Miles Teller), an Oscar-nominated space odyssey (Ridley Scott’s The Martian, 2015), and a feminist indie (Sophia Takal’s Always Shine, 2016). For much of that time, she also starred on one of the most acclaimed—and overlooked—shows on television. In AMC’s tech-centric period drama Halt and Catch Fire, now entering its fourth and final season, Davis plays Cameron Howe, who grows from a punk coder into a shrewd businesswoman at the advent of the internet.

With that project coming to an end, the 30-year-old actress, now based in Los Angeles, is shifting her focus to her two upcoming films: as something of a cipher opposite Ryan Gosling in Blade Runner 2049, the long-awaited sequel to the 1982 masterpiece, and as a night nurse opposite Charlize Theron in the Jason Reitman two-hander Tully.

That was her résumé. This is my friend.

Mackenzie’s upcoming movie Tully has been set for a US theatrical release on April 20, 2018 according to Variety.

Focus Features is acquiring North American rights to Charlize Theron’s comedy “Tully” with an April 20, 2018, release date.

News broke a year ago that Theron, Jason Reitman and Diablo Cody were teaming on the then-untitled project. The trio last worked together on 2011’s “Young Adult.” Bron Studios came on to finance last May.

Focus disclosed Thursday that it had also bought international rights including U.K., Italy, Spain, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Romania.

“Tully” also stars Mackenzie Davis (“The Martian”), Mark Duplass (“The League”) and Ron Livingston. Theron plays a mother of three including a newborn, who is gifted a night nanny — played by Davis — by her brother, played by Duplass. The two women eventually form a unique bond.

Production companies are Bron Studios, Right of Way, Theron’s Denver and Delilah and West Egg Production. Producers are Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert; Reitman and Helen Estabrook through their Right of Way Productions; Cody and Mason Novick; and Theron, A.J. Dix and Beth Kono through Denver & Delilah Productions.

“Tully” was was produced in association with Creative Wealth Media Finance. Jason Cloth of Creative Wealth serves as executive producer. Estabrook and Novick also produced “Young Adult.” Cody and Reitman collaborated on “Juno,” for which Cody won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Reitman was nominated for a best director Academy Award for “Juno” and “Up in the Air.”

“We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Jason for the first time after being long admirers of his witty, inspired filmmaking, and once again with Charlize following last year’s award-winning ‘Kubo and the Two Strings’ and this year’s much-anticipated ‘Atomic Blonde,’” said Focus Features chairman Peter Kujawski.
