Great News! Columbus, film directed by Kogonada and starring John Cho & Haley Lu Richardson will be released in the UK on October 5, 2018! 1 scan from the magazine TOTAL FILM (September Issue) has been added to the gallery and you can read the transcript of the interview below:
How did you get the part?
I got a script and an offer. It was a big deal. I was like, “Why are they offering it to me? How do they know about me?” I just loved the story and thought, “Whoever wrote this is a genius.” The simplicity and the subtlety was in the script. It was so ordinary and so magical at the same time.
Did you know about architecture before the film?
No, but my dad is a golf-course architect and my mom’s a graphic designer, so my parents ingrained in my head, subconsciously, the value of presentation.
Is Casey basically you? It’s such a natural performance…
I’m 23 and not the wisest in how to act, so every character I’ve played I’ve had to find how I relate, or else I’m putting on a shtick. In Columbus, It was the relationship with her mom. I mean, my mom is not a former drug addict but I’ve always felt this best friendship with her. But Casey isn’t me – I’m a very loud person and a move-my-hands-when-i-talk kinda gal, so it really excited me to do a movie and a character with a tone that’s so still.

Haley Lu promoting Columbus on Good Morning Arizona (september 16, 2017)
Hi! Last week, Haley Lu attended the premiere of COLUMBUS with her co-star John Cho and director Koganada. I have added 39 pictures from the premiere and the photocall.
Actors, producers and Gov. Eric Holcomb (R-Ind.) turned out Thursday night for a premiere of the new film “Columbus.”
Columbus is known for its modern architecture, which plays a large role in the new film. In the movie, a Columbus native sparks up a friendship with a visitor and begins sharing parts of her community.
Haley Lu Richardson stars in the movie with John Cho. Richardson says it’s unlike any project she’s worked on.
“I feel like the things I learned in this one were like all creative because it was such a creative, inspiring set to be on and people to work with,” Richardson says.
Erin Hawkins, the Director of Marketing with the Columbus Area Visitor’s Center, says architecture plays a central role in the story.
“It’s not just the backdrop in this film, it’s almost like a third, lead character in the film,” Hawkins says.
The movie premiered at YES Cinema in Columbus, which will continue showings throughout the month. Showings are scheduled in multiple Indiana cities over the next few weeks including in Bloomington, Indianapolis, Nashville, Fort Wayne and Lafayette.
