On Set: 'Cut Bank'

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have seen this pic I posted yesterday, on the set of 'Cut Bank,' a movie being filmed in my hometown starring John Malkovich, Billy Bob Thornton, Liam Hemsworth, Teresa Palmer, Oliver Platt and Bruce Dern. (STELLAR cast, right?!) A lot of you were asking questions about the movie, and LIAM (!) etc. so I thought I'd create a post about it. I had auditioned for a bigger role in the film last month but didn't get it. But on Wednesday my agent called saying the extras casting director wanted to cast me in a different role, as a nurse in a scene with Oliver Platt and Liam Hemsworth. It was a teeny, tiny role, a "blink-slowly-and-you'll-miss-me" part with no lines but I didn't care, it was amazing just to be on the set with these amazingly talented actors and watch them work. It was so inspiring. I had an interaction in the scene with Oliver Platt (whom I adore) which was very exciting. He was hilarious. Sadly I didn't get to actually meet Liam, even though he was right in front of me and his trailer was right across from mine. He is a tall drink of water, that one, like 6'3" and was very friendly on set. I saw Billy Bob Thornton but sadly did not get to talk to him either. I'm a huge fan of his and will admit I had a crush on him when he was dating Angelina Jolie! (Don't judge.) After I wrapped I ran into John Malkovich and introduced myself: "Hi Mr. Malkovich, I'm Marie," I said (LOL) and shook his hand and welcomed him to Edmonton. He was extremely nice. He's one of my favorite actors so it meant a lot to me. I wasn't allowed to take pics on the actual set and I was too shy to ask anyone for a picture, I wanted to respect that they were working and didn't want to bother them, even though I'm sure they would have obliged if I asked them. Anyways, it was a great day! And a wonderful experience! I hope this post answers a lot of my readers questions about my time on set yesterday ; ). I can't wait to see the movie. It comes out next year!

Have a great weekend everyone! And Happy Canada Day Long Weekend to my fellow Canucks!

I love Oliver Platt! That's so amazing! And John Malkovich is such a good actor (loved him in Burn After Reading and Being John Malkovich - such a classic). So cool that you got to meet them both! Love hearing your acting endeavors!
