Alice in Wonderland actress Mia Wasikowska is set to appear on the big screen, in the forthcoming movie Stoker. In to film, Mia has a very emotional scene, where she plays the piano with Matthew Goode and Mia has been talking about shooting that particular scene and what went into it.
Wasikowska explained to Collider, "I really liked it because I felt like I didn’t have to do much. We had playback going and it’s such an intense and amazing piece. I think we listened to it all day, and the rest of the crew was wilting more each time we replayed it. But I was like, 'Yeah! Again!,' because when the music is there, I almost don’t have to do much except surrender to it, and then all the feeling and emotion I felt was in the piece."
She added, "I think with music it’s one more element that we don’t have when we shoot a movie because we shoot it on such a blank canvas in a way. We’re always in a room where there are 25 people in our face holding booms and cameras, so it feels pretty unreal to us when we shoot something. But when there’s music, there’s one more element that gives us an indication of the tone and the feelings, so it feels easier."
As well as starring Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode, Stoker also stars Nicole Kidman. The movie has been directed by Park Chan-wook, based on the script that was penned by Wentworth Miller, and is set to be released in both the US and the UK on March 1.
