Lucy Fry for Alexa Miller (2014)
I’m not sure about a celeb but I’d like to read my mother’s mind. Sometimes things come out of her mouth and it would be fun to know where they came from.
Lucy Fry as Zoey in Lightning Point: Alien Surf Girls
“I just wanted to say, after everything that’s happened… well, I don’t want us to ever have this kind of separation again. I mean, I know we can’t be together every single second-and that’s kind of creepy anyway-but we’re bonded for a reason. We’re meant to look out for each other and be there for each other.”
Her words sent a shiver through me, like we were wrapped in powers greater than ourselves. “We will be.”
“Vampire Academy was my first film, and I put a lot of pressure on myself. I wanted to do as good a job as I could and I really let myself feel that pressure. Thankfully as we went along, I felt really comfortable, because the director, Mark, paid so much attention to detail that he wouldn’t move onto the next scene until we had what we needed and what would work. So, I felt like I was free to stop judging myself, because I knew that Mark would just take care of it.”
I guess playing the juxtaposition between the two is my favourite, trying to find the middle ground with that manipulative queen bee side trying to control everyone, but also she never really feels she can be herself. So it’s that journey of not really being sure what’s going on inside of herself – that was really fun to play.
“You had to be using compulsion.”
I just had so much fun at the audition. I didn’t really mind what happened next. It was my first test deal, and I just loved it and had such a great time workshopping. Doing the scene with Zoey, it felt so alive and connected. I kind of felt like that was a really good choice for the two of us because it felt like we had really good chemistry. Then Zoey drove me home, and we chatted the whole way. It felt really right that that was going to happen, but I had no idea that it would really come through.
