Mia Wasikowska wants more time with her family

Mia Wasikowska wishes she could spend more time with her family.

The 26-year-old Australian actress is kept away from home for months at a time due to her successful Hollywood career and she feels as though she is missing out on seeing her three nephews and niece grow up.

Speaking at the European premiere of her new movie 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' in London on Tuesday night (10.05.16), she told BANG Showbiz: "I have three nephews and a niece and they seem to like rocket forward - I sometimes feel as though it's too fast!"

Mia was born and raised in Canberra by her photographer parents Marzena Wasikowska and John Reid and has an older sister Jess and younger brother Kai.

Once she has finished her promotional duties for the latest Disney movie, Mia will be travelling Down Under to see her loved ones.

She said: "I'm going home soon to see everyone so that will be great."

Mia stars as Alice Kingsleigh in 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' with Johnny Depp, who reprises his role as the Mad Hatter.

And the actress admits she learnt a lot from Depp, 52, while they were shooting the sequel to 'Alice In Wonderland'.

She shared: "Johnny is really lovely and he's such a great performer and all of his characters are very different but very much his style. It's wonderful to be able to see that first hand. I like to learn from how someone like Johnny has conducted his career and the choices he's made."

Mia braved the rainy London weather to walk the special blue carpet at the premiere and was joined by her co-stars Depp, Sacha Baron Cohen, who was joined by his wife Isla Fisher, Andrew Scott and Ed Speleers.
