During the interview, Seth and Sadie discussed the intense nature of the film and the process of finding connection to such a hurt and angry character. Sadie spoke about the three-week rehearsal period that the cast had before filming, which allowed them to dig deeper into their characters and find the necessary emotions for their roles. She mentioned that the characters were very complex and finding the anger was important for her performance.
In addition to discussing the film, Sadie also talked about her co-star Brendan Fraser, who she had not seen any of his films before working on “The Whale”. She was shocked to discover his comedic acting abilities and praised him as the funniest, sweetest guy. Seth also mentioned that it was crazy to think that when they were casting the movie, they thought, “We should get George of the Jungle.”
Sadie also reflected on her start as a young actor on Broadway, where she played the lead role of Annie at the age of 10. She also discussed her role in the play “The Audience” where she played a young Helen Mirren. The actress has had a diverse career, from playing iconic characters on Broadway to portraying complex characters in film, and she continues to captivate audiences with her performances.
