When you come across authenticity in today’s celebrity-obsessed (and celebrities obsessed with themselves) society, it hits you like a breath of fresh mountain air. That is just what i felt when i had the chance to speak with Boyd Holbrook.
AM How did you first get into acting?
AM So you were writing scripts before you even started to act?
AM Once you did your Where’s Waldo part in Milk did you know you definitely wanted to pursue the acting side of the industry first?
AM Recently you premiered two films at Sundance. Was that your first big festival experience where you were showing and promoting films? BH I had two films there this year, Little Accidents and The Skeleton Twins, but my first experience was with Higher Ground, directed by Vera Farmiga. I thought it was this really nerdy festival so I drove up and sat in traffic for a few hours while trying to get into town, peeing in water bottles.
AM So how is the festival experience, especially this last one where you’re premiering two films?
AM Obviously you’ve already worked with an impressive list of actors. Were you ever intimidated going on set for the first day or meeting these people?
