Where the Wild Things Are- The cast
Male: So I can’t imagine that this is like doing a voice over for an animated movie where they can show you story boards and sections of the film. What if anything did you as actors have to sort of shape your characters around or improved your performance.
Judith: We had each other.
Judith: Where you normally are in the studio alone. We had each other, which couldn’t ask for more.
Male: It starts in everything because we’re in the same room and probably do things. We’re reacting to real things.
Male: I was just going to say you guys just kind of go to wild thing is cool for a little while and how did that -- anyway you touch on this one a little bit help sort of you get the most out of your performance and did you have to sort of go and then do touch ups later as they needed for the film?
Male: Yeah, we have to go back into more AVR and stuff in the film as we open together, easily if we want to change or shoot or make clear, definitely.
Judith: I miss wild things and good camp that came out a little later. So I kind of different role and different script but still very physical often with other actors and spike as Max.
Male: Right. For Steve you’ve got -- the interesting thing about this sort of the male monsters in this movie is they you know specifically you and James have this sort of intensity about it and there’s balance between the softness and the base of it. Can you talk a little bit about sort of finding that balance of character for Irene?
Male: I think that mostly I was just want to see that it still worked out in Kate and once everybody it would be all right stuff that I think when he gets into that zone of fighting, you’re playing, you're fighting stuff is able to like let go. It’s kind of an interesting balance because that you know I love Judith so much. But I love like also get hit with the luck, so it’s kind of like sort of --
Judith: I can do that wrong.
Male: I think yeah, she can’t do me wrong. So it’s like an up and downs but I guess if you like start to say, “Well, I like this kind of thing.” And that’s what I like in a relationship. That’s all I would say.
Male: Right. And you sort of have distinction of being in a Warwick the almost scariest monster in the movie because initially you’re the one who’s struggling to eat them and you sort of feel the one like could potentially be the most dangerous to Max.
Judith: Yeah, so especially wild.
Male: It’s such kind of a humor.
Judith: I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry. Go ahead.
Male: And you sort of a lovely voice and you’re so associated with humor. Can you talk a little bit about fighting that balance with your character?
Judith: And it will definitely encourage the humor.
Judith: But you know when you’re in trouble, and when you’re scared, it’s when you most need a laugh.
Judith: And we most need a joke and when you might joke inappropriately because you don’t know how what to do in the situation and that’s kind of Judith. She’s not the oldest so there’s impact. She’s kind of fresh and doesn’t really -- she doesn’t know what she’s doing. She’s so shapeless.
Judith: Really. And I pray about my acting forever, shapeless.
Male: Pointless but still everything.
Judith: Yeah. I speak to you over.
Male: You got to stay.
Male: And in your character has this sort of the most sort of soft intimate relationship with Max. Did you get to spend anytime with him specifically or was sort of all that done hard from each other?
Female: No, those things are done separately. I spent close by Max and -- yeah, and we you know laid on the floor and saying those lines to each other for a long time, and all the time.
Male: It’s not hard to believe.
Female: So I got to the point that go for the certainty and we’re lying there for so long and without saying anything, and then when I'm going to say something. You know it’s really--
