Brie Larson: Room was intense

Brie Larson says she’s “never worked so closely with any actor” as she did with her Room co-star Jacob Tremblay.

Brie Larson found shooting movie Room an “intense, very satisfying experience”.

The 25-year-old actress landed the lead role in the upcoming movie adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s novel, due for release next year.

The film tells the story of Brie’s character Ma, who raises her son Jack in the imprisonment of a tiny room after being kept captive by a man known as Old Nick.

And Brie said in a new interview that working so closely with Jacob Tremblay, who plays Jack in the film, was a rewarding experience.

“It was like a 50-day shoot and I’ve never worked so closely with any actor as I’ve worked with Jacob,” she told Slash Film. “I’ve had to take on, because we’re doing so much together, I’ve taken on such a role of care.”

“I care so much about this kid that it’s in a way been a challenge and the best part about it because I’m not sitting there focusing just on my part and my job. I care so much about what he’s doing.”

Brie also said that shooting Room was unique from a movie perspective, because they were given the chance to film it chronologically.

And shooting the scenes in order gave the cast added opportunity to connect with their characters.

“We’ve shot the majority of it in chronological order,” Brie said. “Which is a really cool experience. So we start at the beginning and have been working our way through to the very end. And I’m starting to get emotional about it because it’s coming to a close.”

“It’s been an intense experience, but very satisfying.”
