Known for drama chops, Nicole Kidman is dying to do a comedy

Known for drama chops, Nicole Kidman is dying to do a comedy”

Absolutely", she said. "Is it in the future?

In the series, Oscar-winning Kidman play Celeste Wright, who seemingly has it all, but whose life isn't as great as she'd like others to think.

"They always say I'm not amusing", said the actress Saturday at a panel for TV critics to talk about her upcoming role in SundanceTV's "Top of the Lake".

We are used to seeing Nicole Kidman in movies, not so much on television, except for her recent foray in HBO's Big Little Lies.

The actress stars in and exec produces Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, which counts female director Reed Morano among its creative team, and she next stars in Top of the Lake: China Girl, which hails from creator, writer and director Jane Campion.

"I would love to be able to do a comedy", she said. "I want to keep trying", she said.

"I'm willing to fall on my face, I'm willing to get back up again".

"Is something changing? I know that Im not sitting up here with men". "I don't know how that happened because it was not thought out - it was given to me that way". "I love that for the two series that I've done on TV, I'm sitting with women up here", she added, referring to her two visits to TCA in 2017 (the first being for Big Little Lies). "Im willing to get back up again".

In a year that has brought Kidman success and acclaim in both television and film - she was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in "Lion" - the actress said she's entering her 50's with "gratitude".

Top of the Lake: China Girl, which is set in Sydney, debuts in the U.S. in a three-night event beginning on September 10 on SundanceTV.
