A Look at the Innovative, Unscripted Love Story, 'Six Years'

Author:
Publish date:

The unscripted love story, Six Years, directed by Hannah Fidell, follows a young couple (played by Ben Rosenfield and Taissa Farmiga) whose relationship deteriorates over a six-year period. AnaVelasco chatted with the two leads for the site, Milk

Highlights:

Taissa, you’ve been in ‘American Horror Story’, and Ben, you’ve been in ‘Boardwalk Empire’, which are both very specific shows with a semblance of fantasy. How was it different to prepare for a film that is this relatable, compared to something that is more fantastical?

BR: I found that the preparation was more about getting your head in the right place, less about building up a character who’s a total transformation from who you are. I was willing to let a lot of myself be in this character, whereas a lot of the time I look for characters that are very far removed from who I actually am.
TF: I think I was more nervous about the improv and how we’d have to bring a lot of ourselves into the character just because we want it to stem from a real place. We wanted to be truthful and it’s hard if you don’t have the dialogue written out for you to base it on a completely different character, you have to base it on yourself. I think preparing the backstory and getting to know these characters was most of the work we did in pre-production.
