Olivia Cooke Reveals She Had A Panic Attack During A 'Ready Player One' Chemistry Read

Olivia Cooke poses with co-star Tye Sheridan at the premiere of Ready Player One held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Monday night (March 26).

The 24-year-old British actress and 21-year-old actor were joined at the event by co-stars Win Morisaki, Philip Zhao, Hannah John-Kamen, as well as director Steven Spielberg.

Olivia and Tye both recently opened up about being incredibly nervous during their chemistry reads, all because Steven was there.

“It was at a chemistry reading scenario at his offices in Los Angeles, and you’re put into a waiting room that has various Steven Spielberg memorabilia from all his different films,” Olivia explained. “You’re just sat there just trying to calm yourself down and then you get brought into the room and you meet him.”

She continues, “He comes in and he’s just so lovely, you’re so disarmed by how charming and kind he is, and he then operates the camera whilst you’re in the audition. He put me at ease as much as he possibly could, but I was still having a panic attack.”

Tye added, “I walked into the room and I was surprised to only see Olivia and Steven and the casting director and no one else. I thought, ‘Who’s going to operate the camera?’ And Steven was like, ‘Alright, well, just jump into it’ and he picks up the camera.”

“There’s always an intimacy with him, which I think does disarm you.”
