Raleigh native Evan Rachel Wood has been a major star for almost half of her 31 years, since her breakthrough role in 2003’s “Thirteen,” the film that put her on the map at the age of 16.
She has since gone on to a highly respected career in film and television, lately including an award-winning run on the HBO series “Westworld.”
Wood also has emerged in recent years as an activist, testifying before Congress earlier this year on behalf of sexual abuse survivors. Reports of families seeking asylum in the United States, only to be separated at the border, also drew Wood to Texas this summer.
On Nov. 20, Wood is coming back to where she started — Raleigh’s Theatre in the Park, where her actor father Ira David Wood III is executive director. She’ll perform as half of Evan + Zane, a musical duo with singer-songwriter Zane Carney. Billed as a show with the theme of “Jealousy,” it’s a benefit for Theatre in the Park.
We talked with Wood and Zane by phone this week.
