Explanation

The first blank needs to be a synonym of get. Ascertain doesn’t make sense, and ensure is used incorrectly — the actress might want to ensure that she gets the part, but it doesn’t make sense to say that she wants to ensure the part itself. The second blank should describe a role with lots of onscreen time and good scenes; you need a synonym for good. That’s exactly what plum means.

Land, a plum.
