Even the biggest stars in the world have to start somewhere, and Jennifer Lawrence is no exception.

To prove it, this newly released, previously unseen footage shows the Mockingjay star in more modest surroundings, as Shakespeare’s tragic heroine Desdemona in a local production of Othello.

The actress took on the role, at the Walden Theatre in Louisville, when she was just 14 years old.

It’s a challenging role, with the character a Venetian beauty who marries Othello, only to be killed by him after she is wrongly accused of cheating.

Still, we’re sure – given the potential shown here – that J-Law was more than up to the task.

The clip re-surfaced after being featured on CNN earlier this week.
