“Working with Terry was an excellent experience. Much of our focus was on staying loose, not being tense; because it’s hard to lock into a character’s emotional life when the actor playing them is all tensed up. The environment Terry creates feels immediately rich with ideas and specific choices. Going off and making a movie after our work together, I felt well-armed to bring a very real, original, and emotionally fleshed-out person to the screen. I felt confident in my choices and spent less time second-guessing myself. All our work freed me up to be in the moment, and improvise with specificity, and to feel very alive in the role I was playing.”
