  • Already know. before you started filming and becoming a
  • 00:40:03.960 --> 00:40:04.994
  • Started filming and becoming a part of the chosen, did you dig
  • 00:40:05.061 --> 00:40:09.532

  • >> i kind of went into this knowing a little bit, just
  • 00:40:16.005 --> 00:40:21.644
  • Knowing a little bit, just culturally who mary magdalene
  • 00:40:21.711 --> 00:40:22.312
  • Culturally who mary magdalene was, who turns out is not at
  • 00:40:22.378 --> 00:40:23.580
  • Was, who turns out is not at all what is typically accurate.
  • 00:40:23.646 --> 00:40:29.385
  • All what is typically accurate. there is this confusion about
  • 00:40:29.452 --> 00:40:30.386
  • There is this confusion about who she is in the bible because
  • 00:40:30.453 --> 00:40:31.588
  • Who she is in the bible because there are so many marys. when
  • 00:40:31.654 --> 00:40:42.065
  • There are so many marys. when i first got the script, i had
  • 00:40:42.131 --> 00:40:43.433
  • I first got the script, i had no idea she had been possessed
  • 00:40:43.499 --> 00:40:44.300
  • No idea she had been possessed and no idea jesus cast out
  • 00:40:44.367 --> 00:40:45.335
  • And no idea jesus cast out demons from her. this is a
  • 00:40:45.401 --> 00:40:46.569
  • Demons from her. this is a very dramatic point in her
  • 00:40:46.636 --> 00:40:47.403
  • Very dramatic point in her life. she -- you know, i am
  • 00:40:47.470 --> 00:40:51.708
  • Life. she -- you know, i am grateful for the writers to
  • 00:40:51.774 --> 00:41:01.017
  • Grateful for the writers to delve into this and to go into
  • 00:41:01.084 --> 00:41:02.318
  • Delve into this and to go into the back story, to make that
  • 00:41:02.385 --> 00:41:03.219
  • The back story, to make that make sense.
  • 00:41:03.286 --> 00:41:03.887
  • Make sense. >> let's talk about the ending
  • 00:41:03.953 --> 00:41:04.621
  • >> let's talk about the ending of episode one, season one.
  • 00:41:04.687 --> 00:41:05.788
  • Of episode one, season one. that scene, i think, is one of
  • 00:41:05.855 --> 00:41:07.023
  • That scene, i think, is one of the most profound and powerful
  • 00:41:07.090 --> 00:41:07.891
  • The most profound and powerful of all the sins. what was that
  • 00:41:07.957 --> 00:41:10.260
  • Of all the sins. what was that like for you?
  • 00:41:10.326 --> 00:41:14.430
  • Like for you? >> it was freezing. it was so
  • 00:41:14.497 --> 00:41:15.565
  • >> it was freezing. it was so cold outside. i was so nervous
  • 00:41:15.632 --> 00:41:16.933
  • Cold outside. i was so nervous to get it right because i think
  • 00:41:17.000 --> 00:41:19.068
  • To get it right because i think i did a scene that young
  • 00:41:19.135 --> 00:41:30.446
  • I did a scene that young actors do, which is to put this
  • 00:41:30.513 --> 00:41:31.614
  • Actors do, which is to put this pressure on ourselves, to get
  • 00:41:31.681 --> 00:41:32.515
  • Pressure on ourselves, to get it right and i just remember
  • 00:41:32.582 --> 00:41:33.549
  • It right and i just remember saying, if i do not do this
  • 00:41:33.616 --> 00:41:34.751
  • Saying, if i do not do this right, they could recast it or
  • 00:41:34.817 --> 00:41:35.752
  • Right, they could recast it or people do not -- it is the hook
  • 00:41:35.818 --> 00:41:41.257
  • People do not -- it is the hook for the rest of the season and
  • 00:41:41.324 --> 00:41:42.425
  • For the rest of the season and the rest of the series. you
  • 00:41:42.492 --> 00:41:43.493
  • The rest of the series. you start thinking that and it is
  • 00:41:43.559 --> 00:41:46.062
  • Start thinking that and it is over.
  • 00:41:46.129 --> 00:41:46.296
  • Over. >> i just had to keep returning
  • 00:41:46.362 --> 00:41:47.430
  • >> i just had to keep returning to the present.
  • 00:41:47.497 --> 00:41:48.698
  • To the present. >> you are mine.
  • 00:41:48.765 --> 00:42:06.215
  • >> you are mine. >> what has it been like,
  • 00:42:06.282 --> 00:42:07.350
  • >> what has it been like, working with jonathan?
  • 00:42:07.417 --> 00:42:12.722
  • Working with jonathan? >> as the director as the
  • 00:42:12.789 --> 00:42:16.092
  • >> as the director as the visionary, you know, he is so
  • 00:42:16.159 --> 00:42:17.093
  • Visionary, you know, he is so funny and easy to be around and
  • 00:42:17.160 --> 00:42:19.295
  • Funny and easy to be around and also very, very attuned with
  • 00:42:19.362 --> 00:42:20.296
  • Also very, very attuned with his actors and understands the
  • 00:42:20.363 --> 00:42:29.472
  • His actors and understands the nuance of not just what he
  • 00:42:29.539 --> 00:42:30.506
  • Nuance of not just what he needs for the scene but how to
  • 00:42:30.573 --> 00:42:31.674
  • Needs for the scene but how to get it out of us. so, if i am
  • 00:42:31.741 --> 00:42:33.242
  • Get it out of us. so, if i am stuck somewhere, he will just
  • 00:42:33.309 --> 00:42:34.110
  • Stuck somewhere, he will just mention some little thing, kind
  • 00:42:34.177 --> 00:42:34.944
  • Mention some little thing, kind of off topic or remind me of a
  • 00:42:35.011 --> 00:42:40.650
  • Of off topic or remind me of a line from a previous scene that
  • 00:42:40.717 --> 00:42:43.386
  • Line from a previous scene that just unlocks what he needs us
  • 00:42:43.453 --> 00:42:44.954
  • Just unlocks what he needs us to do and jonathan is this sort
  • 00:42:45.021 --> 00:42:50.693
  • To do and jonathan is this sort of actor, you know, you need
  • 00:42:50.760 --> 00:42:52.028
  • Of actor, you know, you need for a character of jesus,
  • 00:42:52.095 --> 00:43:01.471
  • For a character of jesus, which is he does not take
  • 00:43:01.537 --> 00:43:02.538
  • Which is he does not take everything so seriously, so it
  • 00:43:02.605 --> 00:43:03.339
  • Everything so seriously, so it is not this very stoic thing,
  • 00:43:03.406 --> 00:43:04.440
  • Is not this very stoic thing, which i think people have done
  • 00:43:04.507 --> 00:43:05.408
  • Which i think people have done so much in the past. and then
  • 00:43:05.475 --> 00:43:06.843
  • So much in the past. and then the moments that are sort of
  • 00:43:06.909 --> 00:43:12.515
  • The moments that are sort of divine is so focused on the
  • 00:43:12.582 --> 00:43:18.087
  • Divine is so focused on the present moment.
  • 00:43:18.154 --> 00:43:18.488
  • Present moment. >> i have heard from the
  • 00:43:18.554 --> 00:43:19.389
  • >> i have heard from the producers the end of the show
  • 00:43:19.455 --> 00:43:20.390
  • Producers the end of the show has been plotted and written.
  • 00:43:20.456 --> 00:43:21.290
  • Has been plotted and written. are you prepared for how it is
  • 00:43:21.357 --> 00:43:22.759
  • Are you prepared for how it is going to end?
  • 00:43:22.825 --> 00:43:23.159
  • Going to end? >> when i first spoke about
  • 00:43:23.226 --> 00:43:24.060
  • >> when i first spoke about this, that is what i saw. it is
  • 00:43:24.127 --> 00:43:26.095
  • This, that is what i saw. it is intimidating to know that is
  • 00:43:26.162 --> 00:43:29.032
  • Intimidating to know that is where it goes. even just
  • 00:43:29.098 --> 00:43:32.969
  • Where it goes. even just thinking about the crucifixion,
  • 00:43:33.036 --> 00:43:34.804
  • Thinking about the crucifixion, i sort of dread doing it
  • 00:43:34.871 --> 00:43:43.246
  • I sort of dread doing it because at that point, we will
  • 00:43:43.312 --> 00:43:44.213
  • Because at that point, we will have been filming for so many
  • 00:43:44.280 --> 00:43:45.214
  • Have been filming for so many seasons and we will have gone
  • 00:43:45.281 --> 00:43:46.282
  • Seasons and we will have gone through so much together, that
