Rachel Weisz - Rachel Weisz's Star Power Lost On Deep Blue Sea Director

Director Terence Davies had no idea of Rachel Weisz's star power when he decided to cast the actress in new film The Deep Blue Sea .
Davies spotted the Brit as he watched her 1997 film Swept from the Sea, and was so impressed by her talent he called his manager to arrange a meeting with her, but was baffled to learn Weisz was already famous.
Producer Sean O'Connor tells Britain's Telegraph magazine, "Terence phoned his manager and said, 'I've just seen the most fantastic girl called Rachel Weisz, have you heard of her?' And his manager said, 'She's an Academy Award-winning actress...' But Terence doesn't know anything about that. He's really not interested."
Weisz jokes, "I'm not sure he knows who anyone is in colour movies."
