Brad is truly a lovely man and I'm really glad we had the opportunity to work together again. Troy was my second or third movie ever and I was incredibly nervous and overwhelmed by the whole process and, you know, Brad Pitt being in the movie. Five years had passed and being a little calmer and wiser, hopefully anyway, and having a really great character to defend, it was just lovely to know him because it made it a lot easier for me.
It was great. My character's so strong and smart and it was really fun to get back at the basterds and be one of the boys, get down and dirty. That's what I preferred and I've never done that in a film really so it was really fun. I felt like I was one of them.
Yes, I don't want to give away too much. Let's just say he's a very hands on director!
Well he didn't believe that I was German, which is crazy. So he was like 'no, no I really want authentic people.' He didn't want anyone that was American but had a German grandmother. So it took him a little while to convince him that I was actually German German and spoke German. But once we did meet it was pretty obvious that we were on the same page.
My very first day on set was the scene at the veterinarian. Imagine, there was no easing into the movie for me. I had to be on, day one. He was so fantastic because it took so much energy for me to do the scene. There was a lot going on - dogs barking, Eli Roth is having a dog allergy, Brad Pitt doing his accent and yelling at me, fake movie blood everywhere. It was a lot. But he takes you by the hand and he loves his actors, he gets so excited about each scene. He was so into it. It's really hard to fail, he just has such faith in you.
