Actress Cortney Palm Discusses New Crime Thriller, "Sushi Girl" - Page 2
CP: I really liked the way the story was written and the way my character was portrayed on the page. She had something really good to offer. She was subtle and powerful and I really enjoy playing characters like that; women who are strong or have a purpose.
gJg: What was it like for you working with iconic actors like Mark Hamill and Tony Todd?
CP: Tony was amazing. He just brought 110% every day so it was much easier for me to just play off of him. We shot the film primarily in chronological order and you could just feel the emotion and the buildup. For Mark, I remember being a little nervous at our table read when he showed up. But at the same time, we're all there for the craft. Sometimes it may be kind of unnerving being around actors who’ve done so much and are so iconic, but you have to stay true to your character and true to your art.
gJg: Mark's character, Crow is definitely no Luke Skywalker.
CP: Mark is such a smart talented actor who's done a lot of theater and film work. He really made that character come to life.
gJg: How would describe the story of Sushi Girl?
CP: It's a crime thriller where something is going on and everyone wants to get to the bottom of it. But it's also a story of revenge. We like to say revenge is a dish best served cold and that's really the epitome of what the film is all about.
gJg: One of the best elements of Sushi Girl is the beautiful cinematography.
CP: Aaron Meister, the director of photography really makes that film what it is. He and Kern (Saxton, Director) had a great vision and just projected it beautifully. It's a great film, and cinematically it's perfect! I will never look at my body the same way again. [laughs]
