#SPOTTED: KATE MARA IN TORONTO FOR “HOUSE OF CARDS”
The stunning Kate Mara finds herself back in Toronto once again, this time to promote House of Cards. Those of you who have been following know v. well how much I adore the Netflix Original Series which premiered back in February and we were among the first to preview the Series here in Canada!
Mara has gained familiarity in acclaimed releases like 127 Hours, Brokeback Mountain and American Horror Story, but many are calling her role as ambitious Journalist Zoe Barnes in House of Cards her true Breakout Role – and rightfully so. She is fantastic opposite Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, a commanding presence who is ruthless in her drive to be on top. Success didn’t come overnight for the older Sister of equally brilliant Rooney Mara – she’s been working hard for quite some time, first gig was a role on Law & Order back in 1997.
The Actress has a busy day ahead of her and earlier today appeared on CTV‘s Canada AM (watch here) and Global Television‘s The Morning Show (National Edition), where Paparazzi finally were able to capture some real Star Power in the City after what has been an extended drought. Mara caps-off her day with a taping over at CBC‘s George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.
“I’m so glad you love the Show!”, she tells me this morning as she signs a House of Cards Gatefold Spread I lifted from my Copy of Vanity Fair. “We haven’t begun filming yet, but will start in about one week”. Mara rushed into the front seat of her Navigator, her hair in a low-fuss Ponytail, waist-length jacket, pants and pumps – gray and blue just like the hues of the David Fincher-produced and directed Series.
Of course, that Autograph mentioned would be for my lovely Readers and Mara was game to sign it for you.

Here’s a Snap I got with Mara who I ran into by chance shopping on Bloor Street during TIFF back in 2011:
The entire first Season of House of Cards is now available on Netflix Canada. Eagerly awaiting Season Two!
