Hitting theatres this week is The Age of Adaline, which stars Blake Lively as the titular character, a woman who has been stuck in her 20s for some 80 years. In that time, she has become wise and savvy behind a youthful, beautiful facade. She’s crafty when it comes to investing money, she speaks a variety of languages, and she understands that her unique condition needs to be kept very quiet.
So, when the tall, dark, and handsome Ellis comes along, Adaline is a bit conflicted. Played by Michiel Huisman, Ellis is affluent and altruistic, perhaps a bit immature and certainly folksy, and maybe too persistent when it comes to wooing Adaline. Despite this, the two slowly start to fall for each other, but a weekend away with Ellis’ parents force Adaline to confront her past and make a fateful decision about her future.
Last week, Huisman visited Toronto to promote the film and while he was here, I landed an exclusive interview with him. During our discussion, he spoke about the courtship of Adaline, cheesy one-liners, and working with the legendary Harrison Ford.
Check out what Michiel Huisman had to say in the video above and be sure to catch The Age of Adaline when it hits theatres on Friday!
