Jaeger-LeCoultre and you
1. After few years of collaboration with Jaeger-LeCoultre how you can define your relationship with the manufacture and the Jaeger-LeCoultre watches?
Through my collaboration with Jaeger-LeCoultre I have discovered a love and appreciation for elegant hand-crafted timepieces. As my career has grown, their continued support of film and my growth as an artist has bridged that gap between the art of watchmaking and the art of filmmaking.
2. What common element you find between you and the brand?
Jaeger-LeCoultre represents a commitment to excellence I try to exemplified a similar dedication to filmmaking and my craft as an artist.
3. Has your relationship with Jaeger-LeCoultre affected your natural relationship to time?
I’m always in a rush! Time is a luxury for me, but every time I attend an event for Jaeger-LeCoultre I’m reminded of the precious nature of time.
4. Are you naturally a morning person or more nocturnal?
I’m naturally an evening person, but I often have to get up very early for work and so I try to enjoy the mornings. I love morning rituals, like making coffee and having quiet time before the hustle and bustle of the day begins.
5. For you, which model of Jaeger-LeCoultre is the best to wear everyday and for an evening?
Lately, I’ve been wearing the Rendez-Vous Night & Day in Rose Gold. Like its name, the watch can transition with an outfit from day to evening. It’s classic and feminine. It’s also what I like in the Rendez-Vous collection.
6. If you have to resume Jaeger-LeCoultre in one word, what would it be?
In one word Jaeger-LeCoultre is timeless.
7. You just did a new shooting with Jaeger-LeCoultre captured by Caitlin Cronenberg in New York, about a beautiful woman living in Manhattan who explores Brooklyn. How was acting a role in a shoot? How was to be photographed by Cailtin Cronenberg?
Caitlin Cronenberg and I are longtime friends and a collaborator, so working with her on this shoot for Jaeger-LeCoultre was incredible. In the spirit of New York we took to the streets to capture the real-time energy of the city. Whenever I work with Caitlin we spend time ahead of the shoot creating and discussing the character at the heart of the shoot. For this reason I find working with her very stimulating and it feels less like modeling and more like acting.
Your career and your life
1. 2015 was a busy year for you with three movies, a Royal Night out, Indignation and the 9th Life of Louis Drax, and one TV Show 11/22/63. How do you find time for yourself with this schedule?
I used to get stress out in-between work, thinking about my next film, but I’ve since learned to enjoy and relish in the downtime I have between projects. Even if it’s just for a weekend or a day, I try and do things that have creative outlet and I also try to check in with my friends wherever I am and contribute to their lives.
2. In the TV Show 11/22/63, you play with James Franco, winner of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the FilmMaker Award in 2014. Can you tell us more about this collaboration?
Working with James Franco was unique because not only did we play opposite each other in 11/22/63, he also directed me in an episode. He is a massive talent, but extremely generous and dedicated to creating.
3. This year you play three different characters of women living in three different times 1945, 1951 and 1958 , how it is to play a woman in a passed time?
I love playing characters from the past. It really gives me the opportunity to transform. I also love doing extensive research into each time period, including music clothing and politics. You always have to temper your instinct with the social expectations of the time. How I would react to something today would be very different compared to a woman from the 40s or the 60s, you always have to be thinking of that while you’re working.
4. In a Royal Night Out, you are a member of the Birtish Royal Family. How did you prepare for this role as a Canadian?
As a Canadian, we grew up with an influx of British culture; after all, the Queen is still a constitutional monarch of our country. Canadian culture is enmeshed in British culture. As an actor preparing for this role I did thorough research of the royal family, engaged in etiquette and dance lessons and also did extensive dialogue coaching. There was a lot to do!
5. Your new film Indignation is highly anticipated by the press, why do you think? In your opinion what makes a successful movie?
I had a wonderful time shooting Indignation this past the summer in NY. I’ve been a longtime fan of James Schamus as a writer/producer and to work with him was extremely stimulating. At this point in my journey as an actor I’m looking to have meaningful experiences where I am pushed creatively and I can learn and thrive.
6. Can you explain what was intresting for you in Olivia Hutton role?
Olivia Hutton is a lot like Sylvia Plath, she was an incredibly smart girl, almost ahead of her time. She never really fit into her surroundings, which made it difficult for her to fully be herself.
7. Who you would like to work with in the future?
I’m interested in collaborating with all kinds of people. I’m a fan of Annie Baker and would love to be in one of her plays someday.
8. What are your next projects in the next semester/year?
I’m looking forward to showing the world what I’ve been up to this past year in 11/22/63 and Indignation. They are two very different projects and I hope people receive them well.
