Jeremy's SXSW Video Interview: 'Source Code' Actress Vera Farmiga

March 21, 2011

Vera Farmiga

It's difficult enough for an actor to work off of another highly animated actor. It is another thing entirely to have to act the majority of a film off of a camera alone. That is where actress Vera Farmiga (The Departed, Up in the Air) found herself in Duncan Jones' Source Code. She plays Goodwin - Jake Gyllenhaal's guide and connection to the "outside" as he attempts to uncover first-hand who bombed a train. I had the honor of sitting down with Farmiga at SXSW to discuss working with Duncan, her character, not wanting to look into the camera, and the straight-man approach she took working against Jeffrey Wright's crazy eccentricities.

Watch Jeremy's video interview from SXSW with Source Code actress Vera Farmiga:

You can read my review of the film from the SXSW Film Festival. I also spoke with Source Code's Michelle Monaghan (up soon), Anton Yelchin from The Beaver, and a few others at SXSW, so stay tuned for more.

Source Code is directed by one of our very favorite up-and-coming British filmmakers, Duncan Jones, son of David Bowie whose feature debut was the brilliant sci-fi film Moon. The screenplay was written by TV writer Ben Ripley, making his feature debut, and was featured on the Black List a few years ago. Vendome Pictures and Mark Gordon produced. Summit Entertainment is bringing Source Code to theaters everywhere starting April 1st before the summer kicks off. Watch a trailer. We hope you enjoyed the interview - more to come!

For an actress, I am surprised her body language is so closed during the interview...Damn Alex and your questioning 🙂

Dude, this was not Alex. It was J. Kirk. And actors are people too.

She also did awesome in Running Scared with Paul Walker. I'm usually not a Paul Walker fan but that is his best film I think. She also shows her butt lol
