🌟Portrait of An Actress: Eliza Taylor.
ET about Thumper ~ It’s a little bit painful to watch at times, in the best way possible. It’s very gritty and raw.
ET: ... the way the script is written you get a real glimpse into these people lives. The lives of people who in a lot of ways feel like they’ve been forgotten about and left behind by society. And as an actress, for the first time in my life, I got to play a character like Kat/Meredith, a character playing a character and it was a wonderful challenge to separate the two.
CG: You do a lot of television. Can you tell what film means to you as a visual art form?
ET: Film has been a life long love affair. For me personally, it’s about taking people away. I remember being at the cinema and watching really powerful movies and forgetting I was sitting in the theater.
It’s about being able to have a glimpse into different people’s lives around the world that we wouldn’t necessarily have a glimpse into.
If we get to pull that off successfully for an hour and a half, you take people out of their daily lives into a completely different world.
CG: No commercial breaks …
ET: Yes, No commercial breaks. She laughs.
