Movie Meltdown: This is the Way… with Emily Swallow
Movie Meltdown – This is the Way… with Emily Swallow
This episode we talk with Emily Swallow who you may know as The Armorer in The Mandalorian. Join us as we discuss how she got into acting, favorite movies, seafaring ghosts, the challenges of acting in costume, the worrisome aspects of organized religion and of course – what it’s like to work with Grogu.
And while we batten down the hatches just in case a hurricane is coming, we also bring up… Big Fish, Fight Club, Burning Bright, Haunting of the Mary Celeste, obsolete technology, caterpillar metamorphosis, based in Kali, Garret Dillahunt, making VHS videos, trying to figure things out sometimes to a fault, Werner Herzog, fighting with tools, Helena Bonham Carter, shooting in Sausalito, Legacy Effects, tracking fake things in the sky, this movie is going to destroy you, Pee Wee Herman, interning at the State Department, Meat Loaf, an angel in the church choir, every single piece of the process can be helpful to my own process, Star Search, a completely ramshackle we’re lucky it didn’t sink kind of a boat, Lauren Kim, puppet vs CGI, Tim Burton and why would you buy an evil tiger?
“Honestly… my first real grasp of the character came with my first costume fitting when I saw the sketches.”
