LOS ANGELES — It’s amazing what a nod from the balding, gold guy can do.

Since Deepa Mehta’s film Water was nominated for best foreign film by the Academy Awards, Toronto-born actress Lisa Ray’s phone has been ringing off the hook.

This past week, the 34 year-old brunette has been working 15-hour days on a Hollywood studio lot auditioning for a new project with the Wachowski brothers, the same duo who created and directed the Matrix trilogy as well as V For Vendetta.

Ray plays down the impact the film’s Oscar nomination has had on her career recently, but adds the success of Water has “opened a certain amount of doors.”
