VIDEO: Sarah Gadon talks about working with Robert Pattinson and the Cronenbergs (Global News CA)
Global news Canada published a short story on Sarah Gadon today, about her visit today on Global’s morning show. She is asked to talk about movies coming up for her this year- she’s a voice in The Nut Job, and she’s a computer in The Amazing Spiderman 2. She doesn’t talk about Maps to the Stars, which will open this year (It is expected to premiere at the Cannes Film festival; see that category link at right of blog for buzz on that), but speaks of working with the two Cronenberg’s.)
I love they showed at the very start of the interview, the Cosmopolis clip of Sarah, playing Eric Packer’s wife, in the bookstore scene with Robert Pattinson. I like the host’s comment afterwards about that clip: “the bizarre luscious world of David Cronenberg.”
Sarah notes she wanted to act from an early age. If you’d like to learn more about Sarah’s career, see our Spotlight Bio on the actress.
Sarah mentions she attended the Cronenberg: Evolution exhibit at TIFF, and how she found it fascinating. If you’d like to learn more about the TIFF exhibit, I’ve posted a lot on it; click the photo of David Cronenberg at the right margin of this blog to access.

“TORONTO — Sarah Gadon is an expert on making movies with directors named Cronenberg.
The 26-year-old Toronto actress made 2011′s A Dangerous Method, 2012′s Cosmopolis and the upcoming Maps to the Stars for David Cronenberg and 2012′s Antiviral for his son Brandon Cronenberg.
‘Everyone always expects me to say that they’re really creepy and weird and bizarre,’ Gadon said of the Canadian filmmakers. ‘They’re incredibly nice people and they’re really kind of normal Torontonians.’

In addition to Enemy, which opens March 14, Gadon provides the voice of a character in the animated comedy The Nut Job, opening Jan. 17. Directed by Canada’s Peter Lepeniotis, it also stars Toronto’s Will Arnett and Joe Pingue.
In May, Gadon will show up in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as Oscorp AI, a computer.
For now, she’s home in Canada to ‘freeze my ass off.’”
