Keri Russell Talks About Working With Matt Reeves Again On Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.28.2014

In an interview with IGN, Keri Russell spoke about reuniting with Felicity co-creator Matt Reeves, who is directing Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Reeves created the show with J.J. Abrams. Here are highlights:

On reuniting with Reeves on this film: "This is not the project I thought we'd be doing together, let's be honest. He has this most beautiful film, this independent film, that he wrote that I would love to do, and we tried to get money for it a few years ago. It's so good, and maybe, hopefully soon. But this is not that. [Laughs] This is so crazy and ambitious and epic. I had no idea what I was signing on for. He had a phone conversation with me and just said, ‘Please come do this.' I said, ‘Matt, I'm finishing this show [The Americans], I'm so tired.' He said, ‘Just come do this with me,' and I'm so glad I did."

On Andy Serkis: "First of all, Andy Serkis -- what the heck! I was deciding whether or not to do it, and just physically -- I have two kids too; I can't work all the time. I need to just do a few things here and there, and then be a mom. I was deciding whether or not to it, but my loyalty for Matt is so strong. [The Americans'] Matthew Rhys had done a movie with Andy, and he said, ‘You don't understand. Andy Serkis is this incredible actor.' I said, ‘I don't really know.' He's like -- growing up at RADA [Royal Academy of Dramatic Art] -- he said, ‘He was who we revered.' I said, ‘I know, but it's, like… apes! There are going to be guys in gray unitards. I'm not a good enough actor to do that. Literally, I'm just being honest.' He said, ‘I'm telling you. He brings it.'"

On what she didn't like about the shoot: "Taking those 3D cameras on location like that, it was so slow -- it was, like, the slowest thing. P.S., my major gripe the first month, which did take a lot of pride to get over, I went from doing The Americans, which is all this cat eyeliner and blown-out hair and stiletto boots and hoes and tight jeans, to working with all boys -- I was the only girl -- in mud for four months. No makeup, frizzy hair. Matt just kept going, ‘Can you wear your hair like Felicity? I just really like that.' I was like, ‘Like that? Like frizzy? Oh, Matt!' No makeup, because it's 10 years after there's no electricity. I'm like, ‘Where's my eyeliner!? This is the worst!'"
