Host: Machelle Noel here at the 2019 San Diego International Film Festival, joining me right now is Camila Morrone. Congratulations Girl for the Rising Star Award tonight!
Camila Morrone: Thank You!
Host: What does that mean to you knowing that you’re one of the top young actresses to watch this year?
Camila Morrone: Well… when it’s said like that, it feels extra crazy. But… yeah no pressure, just one of the top actors that’s being watched.
Host: No worries!
Camila Morrone: It doesn’t really feel like that, you know, I’m still like, in the auditioning world. Finding my way through; but, at least I have some recognition for this film. It’s-it’s really a small film that we did. Out of love and telling a good story. So the fact that it’s even being recognized in this way, it’s just… everything I wanted for the film and more.
Host: Yeah, the trailer is getting a lot of hits. Can you tell us a little bit about the movie?
Camila Morrone:Yes It’s, thank you! It’s a story about a 17-year-old girl and her father, who is a veteran. And um, a little about the opioid crisis. And… I’m not going to tell you too much but it’s about their relationship and their dynamic and… where that story goes.
Host: How do you hope your influence in the film industry will be perceived as?
Camila Morrone: Wow! I haven’t even thought that my uh influence, that there is an influence in the film industry. [From me].
Host: You have a million followers out there, people are watching I mean, you’re the girl to watch this year so…
Camila Morrone: I guess, I guess that does… when you say it like that, it does feel like everyone is watching me, when you say a million people. Um… my influence, well I don’t know… I’m going to continue doing the roles that I think are important in storytelling and that’s why actors do what actors do. So if I can do that then, I feel that’s honest to myself and truthful.
