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 attended the Blade Runner 2049 Press Conference at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE on September 24, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. Photos from the event have been added to the gallery.

Mackenzie is featured in the October 5, 2017 issue of Backstage. She discusses her part in Blade Runner 2049, the series finale of Halt and Catch Fire, and the inspirational message behind Black Mirror: San Junipero. We’ve added scans of the magazine, along with photos from the shoot by Stephanie Diani to the gallery.

If “Blade Runner 2049” is any indication, the future is female—and as the mysterious maybe-replicant and sex worker Mariette, Mackenzie Davis is among the gifted ladies bringing that future to the big screen.

Getting cast in director Denis Villeneuve’s long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 cult classic was quite literally a dream-of-electric-sheep come true. Sitting for an early September lunch in mid-Manhattan, Davis recalls telling her United Talent Agency reps five years ago that atop her acting bucket list was a role in the sci-fi franchise, should a second installment ever come. “I really wanted to be Pris,” she says, citing the “basic pleasure model” made famous by Daryl Hannah. “I’m not,” she clarifies, “but I’m really happy with who I am.”

As for further details on Davis’ Mariette, the actor stays contractually mum—as has all other talent involved. But what we do know tallies three: The new feature follows a young blade runner, Officer K (Ryan Gosling), who’s set on tracking down the 30-years-missing Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) after learning he holds a key to staving off society’s crumbling in his near-future Los Angeles.

No. 2: We know that Villeneuve and his “2049” do “Blade Runner” justice. Davis says she was “nervous about being a part of something that would tarnish the legacy” of her favorite film, “[but] I think [it] adds to it in a great way.” She was also nervous about meeting the standards she set for herself. “It’s hard to be such a fan of something and to want something so bad and then to just be super casual and normal when you get it,” she admits. “The stuff that exists in the dreamscape doesn’t cross over to your real life that often.”

Which brings us to No. 3: Davis needn’t have worried. Villeneuve exclusively tells Backstage that though “Mackenzie doesn’t know this,” the 30-year-old talent—until now best known for “Halt and Catch Fire” on AMC and the Emmy-winning “San Junipero” episode of Netflix’s “Black Mirror”—was always at the “very top” of his casting wish list. “She was part of my initial dream,” he concedes. “It wouldn’t have been possible for me to make the movie without her.”

Mackenzie is featured on the cover of the September/October 2017 issue of Malibu Magazine. Interviewed by Augustus Britton, she discusses her acting techniques, what makes her stand out, and why empathy is such an important thing for an actor to have.

The light is pale blue. A thin sheen hangs over everything. We are in the midst of a solar eclipse.

The lake shines down by our feet. I see fish—small ones. I see a turtle. Geese. Ducks. Dogs. People. Coffee cups. I see the paddleboats.

I see very small splatters of what looks like blue paint on the frames of Mackenzie Davis’ lime green Céline sunglasses. Telling, maybe. She looks a touch tired. Her neck is long. Her hair is pulled back. Pretty face—an elegant face. Her hands are venous. Her skin is pale. I can’t see her eyes. The tint is too heavy. I almost ask her to take off her shades, because behind those shades are big and brilliant blue eyes. I don’t ask.

Instead, “How did we get here?”

She answers. A full voice comes through, a recognizable voice, “It’s funny. I was just sitting here thinking about how I lived in L.A. five or six years ago, for two years, and Echo Park Lake wasn’t here [the way it is now], and then I moved back to New York, and as soon as I moved to New York, Echo Park Lake became this thing again. And now I’ve moved back here—I was really jealous that it got developed while I was away.”

That’s her answer. From moment to moment Mackenzie is very much interested in the spirit of what’s happening right now, a veritable hallmark of the best kind of actor.
