Was there any specific other advice or lessons you learned yourself from your co-stars on Glass Onion?
From Daniel I learned what a real leader looks like. He is a gentleman to the core. And he’s also one of the funniest, most uninhibited people I think I’ve ever met. And he, along with Rian knows, has this great energy. That sense of security and freedom starts from the top. They really knew how to curate and facilitate an environment where everyone felt safe and free to play. And that’s something that, on any set that I’m ever on, I’d like to emulate that kind of energy. It’s important and I don’t think it matters where you are in a calling schedule.
From Ed Edward, he is such a perfectionist, but I learned that no mistake you ever make is worth it. If you are not satisfied with what you have put down, you can start over. It’s a very practical thing for an actor. Sometimes I think we feel like we have to keep going. Do not. Just start over and put only what you are happy with on the camera.
With Kathryn, Kate and Janelle I learned freedom. The three are so free and inhibited. They have no fear. They are fearless in their work and I admire that so much.
From Leslie I learned silence. I learned how powerful silence is. He is also very calculated and deliberate about everything he does. It was so beautiful to look at.
