JaNae Collins, of Poplar, has been cast to play the role of Rita Smith in the upcoming Martin Scorcese film “Killers of the Flower Moon” based on a novel of the same title. The film follows members of the Osage Tribe in Oklahoma that were systematically murdered in the 1920s for their share of vast oil deposits.

JaNae Collins always wanted to be a storyteller.

“I always considered myself an artist,” she said. “I just didn’t know what medium.”

Briefly, she entertained the idea of becoming a movie or TV writer—it seemed like a realistic goal in an industry that often overlooks Native voices.

She never intended to become an actor.

Montana actor Collins, 33, of Poplar, is playing a prominent role in an upcoming film by director Martin Scorsese.

“Killers of the Flower Moon” also stars fellow Montanan Lily Gladstone, Robert DeNiro, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jesse Plemons.
