Check out the interview below.
Hi, Scarlet! Thank you for granting the interview. Congrats on your major supporting role as Pickle in Sony Pictures’ “Home and Watson.” What should the audience expect to see?
Hi, there! Thank you so much for interviewing me! I’m super excited for Holmes & Watson to be released! I cant actually give too much of the plot away at the moment but… the movie is a comedic take on Sherlock Holmes. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly play the iconic duo, using their brilliant minds to stop evil genius James Moriarty from assassinating the Queen of England!
Tell us about Pickle. Who is she? What is her personality like?
Pickle has been one of my favorite characters to play so far in my career. Pickle is such a challenging role to take on which is the best bit about her. Pickles personality is very different to mine, which made her super exciting to play as I got to experiment with her as a character and play her in my own way. I’m SO excited for the world to meet her.
What role does Pickle play in the movie?
Pickle is part of a group of URCHINS, played by myself, Noah Jupe (Wonder) Bella Ramsey (Games Of Thrones) Billy Jenkins (The Crown) & Colby Mulgrew (The King of West End).
As a group we carry out lots of mischievous tasks for Sherlock & Watson, whilst getting into lots of trouble in the process!
Was it a challenge to play Pickle? Did you have to pull from experience?
Pickle was such a fun part to play! I absolutely loved every minute of creating her as a character. There were a few challenges which came with my role such as learning multiple techniques such as real pick pocketing and street fighting! This just made my role even more thrilling to play.
How did you get the role?
I auditioned for the role back in November 2017; I attended 3 auditions before meeting with Etan Cohen! Etan had flown over from the States for the final audition and was such a lovely guy. I was really excited after the audition as I felt it had gone so well and a week later my agent called to tell me I had landed the role. I was over the moon! I will never forget that moment. Everything happened so fast after that last meeting and a couple of weeks later I was sat at Shepperton Studios in a Hanger doing a huge script read though with the main cast and sat a few away from John & Will with Bella! Very surreal.
The subject matter of the movie is exciting. How does the movie production bring something new to the story?
I know Holmes & Watson is going to be a fantastic comedy. I’m so excited for everyone to see it! I think Sherlock Holmes fans will enjoy the comedic duo as it really brings something new and exciting to the table that’s never been done before!
What is going to surprise people about Pickle?
I think people will be surprised at Pickle’s ability to fight in this movie! My part is super fearless, which I think people will love about her.
Without giving anything away, what’s your favorite line of dialogue and why?
I can’t say too much about my dialogue at the moment, but I think anything that comes out of Pickle’s mouth will be hilarious! All my lines are very comedic and cheeky! You’ll just have to wait and see! 🙂
When looking back on the production, what resonated with you the most and why?
Looking back on the production, I have to say filming with the best actors in the world and who enjoyed spending time with us even off set was just wonderful and during lunch John occasionally would find us and sit down and have a picture or chat with us. The Urchins AKA Bella, Noah, Colby, Billy & I, to me was what resonated with me and meant so much as we had so much fun together, we all forged such fantastic friendships.
In your opinion, what scene in the movie is going to blow people away and why?
It’s too hard to choose a scene as they are all so unique and just impossible for me to choose. I think people will love them all.
What do you enjoy most about your character and role?
Whilst playing Pickle I learnt quite a few new skills! Which is probably my favourite part about the whole experience. I also met so many lovely people; friends for life! I still meet up with some of them or we keep in touch on social media. Cant wait to see them all soon!
