Questions

From Andrew Scott and Olivia Colman See You Taking Creepshots in Interview Magazine (April 4, 2024):

OLIVIA COLMAN: Iโ€™ve just done a week of press and Jessie [Buckley] and I were going a bit stir-crazy with the same questions. My lovely PR said, โ€œShould we turn it into a drinking game?โ€ So she gave all the journalists mimosas and said, โ€œIf anybody asks the same question, you have to drink.โ€ Then the whole thing was fun.

ANDREW SCOTT: I bet you were hammered.

COLMAN: Yeah. It was brilliant.

SCOTT: And I bet the question that you drank the most to was, โ€œWhat did you think when you first read the script?โ€

COLMAN: Oh my god. Thatโ€™s it. Or, โ€œWhat drew you to this?โ€

SCOTT: Yeah, me and Paul [Mescal] had it just recently on All of Us Strangers and that was our big one. But itโ€™s amazing when somebody asks you a really offbeat question. Youโ€™re immediately energized by it, because the thing is, youโ€™re never going to say, โ€œWell, I was the seventh choice for this part, and I did this because Iโ€™m in a huge amount of debt.โ€

COLMAN: I have occasionally said that. โ€œI had a huge tax bill, so it came at the right time.โ€

SCOTT: [Laughs] But itโ€™s a very weird thing to try and speak about how absolutely feral you feel sometimes in that interview room. Do you know what the other one is? โ€œAny funny stories?โ€
