Personal Quotes (2)

I started doing student films at Columbia grad school, and this one student filmmaker, his girlfriend was interning at an open casting call for Susan Shopmaker. Later on she did the stage reading for Martha Marcy May Marlene (2011), then she cast it, And that was my first movie.
[on preparing for her character in Electrick Children (2012)] Rebecca [the director] was raised Mormon, and she really guided me through everything. But Rebecca wasn't fundamentalist, where they wear the braids and the long prairie dresses and it's "Big Love" and "Sister Wives." And you would see it all over, like if you went to Walmart in Utah. And me, coming from New York. I'm Jewish too. It's very funny.
