Is there a line or moment in the film that was completely improvised?
MG: Not for this film. The script was so well written, it didn’t really call for it. The themes were so rich and the script had such great dialogue. There was so much there to work with, and it all felt right for the character. It all made sense when you put your mouth around those words and sentences. That was actually quite nice and a gift as an actor, when all of that work is already there and you don’t feel like you have to doctor it up in any way.
AS: I think that in terms of changes, not really changing but more exploration was the physical aspect. I agree with Mia; the scripted dialogue was so tight and so good that there was really no need to riff or change it or improvise. It was very concise. But then when we got into the more the physical aspect, obviously, of the cloning process and the big fight scenes, that’s where we used the script more as a blueprint on the day of filming and just discovered how far we could push it; how far we could take it, and try those scenes in different directions to kind of surprise ourselves, and see what would happen.
