“We all knew that we really wanted to build chemistry and to do that you have to trust your scene partner,” Grace‘s co-star Garrett Clayton recently said about the cast. “Grace and Maia [Mitchell] talked about it a little bit and they got us all together. We went and swam out past the ocean to where we kind of had to like doggy paddle ourselves out, and we all told each other one secret. We all confided in each other and we built that trust out right off the bat, just to make sure that we all knew that we were there for each other and that we were ready to do this as a team.”
Grace added about the costumes of the movie, “Our costume Designer Ruth Carter was brilliant. She actually worked with me to try to convey the evolution of my character though costuming. I was very excited to get to play around with the 60s styles. There’s also something to be said about wearing costumes that are so unlike everyday clothes in that you physically don’t feel like yourself anymore- helps with the acting and all that.”
Shot by Justin Campbell, Grace was styled by Francis and Pereira with hair by Melissa DeZarate and makeup by Grace Phillips.
