Actress Jackie Moore reunites with director James Cullen Bressack on The Condo, a new comedy out now from Gravitas Ventures.
When did The Condo come to you?
James sent me the script after working together on Pernicious, and he said “I think you could do something great with this”. I don’t think I auditioned, it was more just he thought the character would be good for me. I’m very grateful for the opportunity.
And, contrary to what people might assume, it’s not a doc on expensive real estate. How was the movie initially pitched to you?
I think he pitched it as a very unique romantic comedy with a lot of twists. I loved the script.
Could you relate to your character?
I think we all have different sides to our personalities…hers are just VERY different.
Is it fun getting to play such an outrageous character?
Yes, I absolutely loved it. It’s so rare to get a script like this, so I had a blast.
Do the writers continue working on the script as you film? Do they keep adding moments you never planned on?
No, we stayed very true to the script. I insisted on doing my own wardrobe though because I had a very clear vision for her different looks.
How does this project compare to some of the other films you’ve done? I imagine it’s quite different?
Very different, because it was such a big cast. Other characters saw me in all these crazy costumes and later a few were like “on set I was really worried about what you were doing with your character!’ . This was one of my favourites because everyone was so nice and just happy to be there. It was a great experience.
What does the movie have to say about relationships?
Cheaters never prosper… and you have to always follow your heart.
Whose story – as in ‘character’ – in the film do you find particularly interesting?
Maybe I’m biased but I thought mine was pretty interesting…
