Sunrise in Heaven
[on her mother]
My mother always use to say, “You’ve got to read. You can do anything, but you’ve got to read.”
P-C: That’s so interesting! Like you said, this is your first feature film. What surprised you the most about the experience?
I have a theatre background and I’m used to a lot of rehearsals. I love to do a lot of takes, but with this being an indie film, we had to do several scenes with only one take. I just had to give it your all and move onto the next scene, and trust that the director got what he needed. Our director, Waymoon Boone, was great at juggling everything on set.
When I got the audition, I immediately read the book. Any time I get an audition, I always want to know what the story is based on. That’s part of the reason I was interested in becoming an actor. I wanted to be a part of those stories.
My passion for acting came from reading books. I couldn’t read until third grade, so I was in remedial classes. Growing up, I had dyslexia and missed a lot of school. By the time I entered high school I was a math and science credit ahead of grade level. Then, I graduated early to pursue acting.
I once googled myself and read on the internet that my net worth was $54 million dollars and that I had earned it through being a famous movie actress. I’m curious do relationships count towards a net worth?
At 18 years old, I bought a one-way ticket and moved to Los Angeles, CA from Arizona by myself with less than a hundred dollars in my bank account.
It doesn’t matter how many times you’re rejected. Rejection doesn’t make you a failure. Giving up makes you a failure.
How did you prepare for your role in Sunrise in Heaven?
I auditioned for a ton of things this year, but this was one that attracted me as much as I attracted it. It’s set in the 1950s, which is something I was immediately interested in, and is based on a book. The character that I play is a living person, so I actually got to meet her. I took her out for lunch (Chateau Marmont). I wanted to take the characteristics that I observed from her, and use them for my performance.
You can’t have a testimony without a test.
All we are is what we have the courage to create, at any given moment.
Whatever gives light to the world must also endure the burden of burning.
You’re going to die. You’re going to be dead. It could be in 10 years, it could be in tomorrow, anytime. So am I. I mean it, we’re just going to be gone. The world’s going to go on without us… you do your job in the face of that, and how seriously you take yourself, you decided for yourself.
I studied Stanley Kubrick and Anton Chekhov. I’ve watched everything Stanley Kubrick has ever made, except for Barry Lyndon. I don’t know why, but I haven’t watched that one yet. I’ve read over 234 plays and over a hundred screenplays. I know because I use to keep a list. I use to track my 10,000 hours.
In any art you’re allowed to steal anything if you can make it better. Art is either revolution or plagiarism.
All that makes us beautiful isn’t always marketable.
Well, if that’s not love it’ll have to do until the real thing comes along.
