They came in at the end. It was funny because we only had one day of rehearsal before shooting. I used to do these weird, physical theatre exercises that you see in the film, so we didn't rehearse any texts; we just rehearsed those movements and did this thing called open canvas. Ironically, we didn't get a lot of time to rehearse the scenes, which I think I will change in my next film.
Regarding Molly, I was actually considering another choice for that character. But I loved her in House of Cards; I was watching the third season and ended up binge-watching it, so I spent seven hours ‘with her’. I think by having had that experience, I don't know, you trust someone. We met up with her and she said yes; she was interested in the complex dynamics. I can’t speak for her, but I think it was touching issues and issues around the behind the scenes that were interesting to her.
Miranda was different. She didn't think of herself as an actress at the time. She's an artist who makes her own work and focuses on that. She puts herself in her work but she doesn't ‘act’ in other people’s stuff. It took a little bit of begging and, funnily enough, she asked to be auditioned. She asked, “what if you don't think it’s good enough”, which I doubted. So we did an audition that was just us rolling around a room and making noise into each other’s torsos. She was down and said yes, surprisingly. Honestly, I hope we were friends for life because she's very special.
