If you have some time to spare (the interview is almost an hour!), then please do make sure to watch this brilliant video of Rebecca from SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Career Retrospective from a couple of weeks ago. Rebecca discusses her roles in The Prestige, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Town, Please Give, The Gift and of course, her most recent work as Christine Chubbuck.
VARIETY – In “Christine,” Rebecca Hall stars as journalist Christine Chubbuck, who committed suicide on live television. Hall and director Antonio Campos talked about Chubbuck’s life and portraying depression in the biographical film during the Variety and AARP Movies for Grownups Screening Series.
“It’s ironic. There’s a common misconception about depression, actually,” Hall said, explaining that many think “people with depression don’t laugh or don’t crack jokes or don’t do things that are energetic.”
“For me, the basis of my characterization was that she is active,” she went on. “She’s not passive. She’s actually desperately trying to survive.”
Earlier this week, HUNGER released this wonderful behind the scenes video of Rebecca’s recent photoshoot for issue six of the bi-annual magazine. Be sure to take a look!
