I love meeting the fantastic child actors of “Moonrise Kingdom.” Jared Gilman stars as Sam and Kara Hayward is Suzy, two young lovers who will do anything to be together. Both are newcomers but they can go toe-to-toe with their experienced co-stars.
In this interview, we talked about:
*** Their first reaction when they heard they got the part
*** How they prepared for their roles
*** Working with Wes and their co-stars
*** What they want the kids to realize about the movie
Oh yeah, in the middle of our interview, Siri popped in! Take a look
Moonrise Kingdom is the new movie directed by two-time Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Rushmore).
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two 12-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore – and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in every which way. Bruce Willis plays the local sheriff, Captain Sharp. Edward Norton is a Khaki Scout troop leader, Scout Master Ward. Bill Murray and Frances McDormand portray the young girl's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bishop. The cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Jason Schwartzman, and Bob Balaban; and introduces Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward as Sam and Suzy, the boy and girl.
