MTV has another “Remember Me” article online. They spoke with director Allen Coulter as well with Emilie de Ravin.
No one was the right fit until “Lost” star Emilie de Ravin read for the part. Weeks later, she was on the New York set with a prime role in Pattinson’s first big post-“Twilight” film. All involved in the casting choice pointed to her immediate connection with RPattz as the reason she nabbed the part. How did the 28-year-old Australian actress establish that instant chemistry?
Emilie explains: “I don’t know. With friends, or people you date, or with family, you just sort of click, sort of get along. I don’t really know how to put your finger on those things.” Director Allen Coulter was able to identify the key ingredients that led to Emilie de Ravin’s and Robert Pattinson’s onscreen chemistry. “From the beginning, I think they both found each other amusing, so there was a lot of laughter on the set and between takes and even sometimes during takes.” He adds that it was great, because Emilie was unimpressed by the [Twilight] phenomenon and Robert was unimpressed by the phenomenon. “I think they were both a little staggered when we showed up on the street and they were mobbed. But I think they kept it light for each other, and on the set and off the set, they were pals.”
Emilie add “It was so great being able to work with someone you immediately get along with and is incredibly talented and is driven to make the film as good as we can. Having someone you can go and talk with about a scene, and it’s all very casual and easy, that made filming such a delight — having a friendship level and a commitment to the script. The way Rob and I developed our relationship onscreen was very natural and just seeing what happened with scenes, what happens in the moment.”
