On how it feels to be a Sundance sensation: “Absolutely nerve-wracking. When I shot this movie, it was such an intense experience that I forgot it was something that was going to be seen. I really bared my soul.”
On what makes Outlaws and Angels unique: “It is rare that an indie movie gets to do this but we shot on film — 35 mm. It’s a western but it just so happens to be set in that time period. It’s not at all a typical western, which is almost always a male-driven genre. There is a feminist quality to it.”
On her first film role: “I played my dad’s daughter in a movie called True Crime. I was about eight and I got to choose my character’s name. I was obsessed with Kate Winslet, so my character’s name was Kate. I remember that at one point, I thought my stand-in had taken my part, and I started crying. We started filming right after that because in one scene I was supposed to be crying.”
