I wanted to look young in this role, it was a needed thing. She’s 14. This role I really needed to feel 14, I had to be 14 in every way possible, so I hung out with my 14 year-old cousin for a month. She had a retainer and pigtails and all that. There’s something in their eyes, between age 10 and 15 I think, it’s just that sort of ‘anything is possible’ look. For me, the most beautiful thing you could ever see is like a child’s eyes. I wanted to really make sure that I captured her spirit, that youthful spirit. For me it’s all about dreaming. What does she look like when she walks? What’s the look in her eye? It’s not about, ‘Oh, on this move, I’m going to put my arm like that.’ It’s just the whole spirit, so that any way that I would move would be right. - On her role in Matchstick Men
Wielu współczesnym horrorom brakuje wiarygodnych postaci i akcji, która bez uciekania się do sztuczek typowych dla kina klasy B mogłaby zainteresować widza. Oglądając je, mam zawsze wrażenie, że bohaterowie w pewnym sensie czekają, aż wydarzy się coś strasznego. - Źródło: „To i Owo” nr 1, 5 stycznia 2010, s. 5. - Zobacz też: horror
