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.
