Just Actors Pt.8 – recreating Girl Interrupted (1999) with Diomargy Nunez & Sarah Seeds
I’m doing something different with this one. I decided to do the scene twice and have the actors swap roles. This seemed the fair thing to do since the scene felt more like a monologue with another actor’s support. As I reviewed the script prior, I realized that my key to making this scene work is that Lisa must invite her own disaster. Therefore I directed it as such, Lisa starts off focused on Susana then her attention spirals inwards.
I have to congratulate the girls as they really broke from the what the film established. Sarah showed us her mocking humor and we end on a high note as Dio let it rip.
