Bonnie Wright: 'I Wanted To Make Something Personal'

Bonnie Wright: 'I Wanted To Make Something Personal'

Bonnie Wright brings some summer to the premiere of On The Road during the 2012 Cannes Film Festival held at Palais des Festivals on Wednesday evening (May 23) in Cannes, France.

The 21-year-old actress spoke with Empire about her new short film, Separate We Come, Separate We Go, which screened at the famed fest.

“I wanted to make something personal and I’ve spent a lot of time in Dungeness, because my parents have a house just down the coast from there,” Bonnie shared. “So it has a strong connection to my family. Also, I was always a massive fan of Derek Jarman and he spent his last years there. I just love the strangeness of it, the bleakness. The more I’ve been there, the more I fall in love with it.”
