It was a lot of fun talking with Chris Lowell and Rose McIver earlier this week, who were in Los Angeles to promote their latest film Brightest Star. Co-written and directed by Maggie Kiley, Lowell stars as The Boy (we never learn his real name) who, as the film begins, has just been dumped by the love of his life, Charlotte (played by McIver). The story goes back and forth in time as we see how these two became patiently entwined while in college and what later led them to split up.
The Boy, however, refuses to believe that their relationship is over and does everything in his power to win Charlotte back. His plan is to transform himself into the man that she desired him to be, but in the process he comes to wonder if he is compromising his values and neglecting his true desires in life.
During our exclusive video interview with Lowell and McIver, they spoke about the challenges of making this film on a schedule of just 18 days, what it was like to work with co-stars Allison Janney and Clark Gregg, how they managed to have such great chemistry and more.
