Did you enjoy shooting charlotte sometimes?
Are their any stories you can share?
Do I have any funny stories...well, felt pretty nervous about the motel scene. as people were setting up between the two rooms, i was trying not to throw up in the bathroom of either one. i went out and bought some adhesive strapless things for my breasts. i was determined not to have something slip into a shot, especially since the entire crew was guys, young guys. so, i think the acting coup goes to Matt. he was having to act like my two pruny-textured band-aid mounds for a chest was erotic, exciting. good actor that Matt Westmore. and a totally great partner to work with. i guess it goes without saying, but sex scenes are reeeeeeally hard. everything that you enjoy in it, all of the "first times" that are savored and your own are kind of stolen and dissected. so you have to convince yourself that its okay, when everything in you is screaming, "this is so strange!"
How much of yourself did you put Darcy?
I think Darcy's human qualities are very identifiable to me. I think human beings lie a lot, even when they intend on telling the truth. Memory is a very tricky thing to contend with. People are usually trailing behind them a lot of things, related and unrelated, that they regret, loved, continue to run from, perplexed them. And in love we all want to give a kind of new appearance. "Hey, this may be the one--" the naive one in us says,"--so don't say too much." What is even trippier is that a lot of the things we remember are distorted by memory, maybe even were distorted the moment they happened by our ever deceiving perceptions. Are we really as unloveable as we think? Or as loveable?
Darcy seems to be aware of deception. And though she participates in
it, she seems more invested in uncovering it, finding out why it is there.
She plays all around a thing, never thinking that she may indeed be inside
it. She suffers from intuitiveness and low self-esteem, she can see things
for others, but she can't see herself. I can relate to that.
How much do you normally put into characters?
Eric's film has a lot of subtext, so there were things to play that felt
specific and different from me. I think actors are hungry for that. Chances
to play material that is very specific, that is actually laid into the
actions, the environment, the lines of their character. With these things
present, I think the ability to transform is much greater.
What's are you plans for the future?
I have a film coming out that I worked on last year in France and New
York. It is a documentary within a documentary. I play a documentarian
who wants to make a film about Paul Cezanne, pursuing all the groundwork
and interviews to this end, but who ends up doing something very different
than she had envisioned. It's called In Search Of Cezanne.
