I finally got to rehearse with my actors on Friday. They had, of course, loads of questions lined up for me, but when we started to break the scenes down into actions, actions into reactions and brought the lines into the lips of the actors, the scenes started to get a completely new life. It was relief to see the film starting to live, and reminded me that I actually was doing exactly the same thing – rehearsing with the actors for the first time – exactly two years ago for Iron Sky The Coming Race! Time flies when you’re having fun, I guess.
Afterwards, there was fitting with the lead actress and then a dinner.
