In Mary’s memories…

The shortest, sweetest job I’ve ever had. I was there for one night! [Laughs.] I flew in to New York, stayed at a great hotel, got picked up in the morning, we drove up the Hudson to this beautiful house, and by that night we were shooting it. And I got to be with Kevin [Spacey], and I hadn’t worked with Kevin since we did the play National Anthem, which Kevin, Tom Berenger, and I did at the Long Wharf in the ’80s. I don’t think Kevin and I had worked together since then. We’d seen each other here and there. I can’t tell you how easy it was for us to fall into an implied history. They’re all wonderful people, the creators and writers ofMargin Call. I know [J.C. Chandor] has this new film with [Robert] Redford that’s just come out [All Is Lost]. I haven’t seen it yet, but I can’t wait. I was supposed to go to the premiere, but my work schedule changed so I couldn’t. I’m already looking forward to my hiatus, so I can catch up on movies! [from “Mary McDonnell on Battlestar Galactica and going mute in front of Robert Redford” by Will Harris]
