Morgan Saylor Talks Her Role in “Blow The Man Down” – Coveteur

Jun 30, 2019       Filed in Blow the Man Down ,Photos ,Press       Comments: 0

Morgan Saylor is a serious actress, but she still loves a good prank call

She pursued the role of Mary Beth in Blow the Man Down for three years.

You could almost feel the energy pulsing through the air in the presence of actress Morgan Saylor. And it only livened when the Chicago native spoke about her most recent role as Mary Beth in the upcoming crime drama Blow the Man Down. Saylor became passionate about the role the first time she read the script three years ago. “The fact that it’s about a bunch of badass women is so exciting to me,” she gushed. “It’s a rarity to read a script knowing that I’m not going to have to do all of my scenes with a man.”

The film follows two sisters, Mary Beth and Priscilla (played by Saylor and Sophie Lowe, respectively), struggling to process the death of their mother and later finding themselves in the predicament of covering up a crime. Lowe’s powerful energy catapulted her through the audition and eventually the filming itself, for which she spent numerous months alongside co-star Sophie Lowe. The more Saylor—who starred in Homeland and White Girl, and even had a small role in The Sopranos in 2006—divulged the details of her time spent filming in Maine, the more evident it was that the connection between the female cast and crew was impermeable. “It was thrilling to be able to support the directors and getting to see them manifest this dream,” Saylor said.

Below, more on what filming in Maine was like and the details on what happened BTS on set.

The auditioning process:

“This [role was] something that I was attached to the longest before I made it, out of any project, which is special. It’s always lovely to think about your character [for] as much time as you can. I came across it maybe three years ago, and the first thing I did was Skype with both of the directors, Danielle and Bridget. I was at my brother’s house in Brooklyn, making octopus, and it felt very fitting from the start [laughs]. I think I was the first person to read the script aloud and audition for them. They had me read for both girls, which was interesting. I didn’t want to do the other role, I liked my role from the beginning, but we just played around in a room in Brooklyn for a few hours. It was a long, funny, drawn-out process, but I was in love with it the whole time and chasing it.”

What it was like filming in Maine:

“It was so great. The directors, Sophie, and I spent a long time rehearsing, which was nice. We really built our world before we showed up in Maine. Being there was the best. Sophie and I lived together in the middle of nowhere. I wanted to be there a month early, but they said no [laughs]. Sophie and I started hanging out every day in the month leading up to [filming] to really try to get under each other’s skin in a positive way.

“Maine was a true delight. Lobster rolls! We had a few snowstorms, which delayed production a little. When we came home, we had one giant couch and two La-Z-Boys, and at the end of every day we’d plop ourselves down in front of the fireplace. It was funny because we were staying in this big house with two extra bedrooms. It felt similar to the movie because our parents are orphans, so it was fun [to be staying in] this big house that felt like a family house.”

A few of her favorite memories from set:

“Once the power went out and Sophie was really scared, and I had to play it cool [even though I was scared, too]. We were in the middle of fucking nowhere and the snow was coming down, coming down, coming down. [It was out] for a few hours. There were a lot of really cold, long nights.

“We did a lot of prank calling on set. It’s mentioned very briefly in the movie, or maybe it was cut from the script, but [Mary Beth and Prisclla] used to prank-call when they were bored at the shop. Our very first day of rehearsal, the directors wanted me to do a prank call. They had me call our producer, Drew, who I hadn’t met yet. I called him and said, ‘This is Cynthia Rowley,’ not remembering that that’s a designer, but I was like, ‘I’m from Maine’s film commission, and I just wanted to let you know that we reviewed the content of your upcoming project, and it’s far too inappropriate for…’ I don’t know, something like that, and he died on the phone, he was so freaked out it was great. Then, in between setups or when we had more downtime, we would [prank-call] a lot of ex boyfriends. It’s really easy on an iPhone to turn off your caller ID. [laughs].”

On breaking in and out of character:

“Breaking is hard. But usually by then I am so exhausted that I just go home and don’t look at anyone for a week. Definitely a lot of time to myself. To get into the role, I built a lot of backstory going through the script, working with our directors, talking about our own families and why Mary Beth is the way she is. I really love timelines—I find them very important. I put them across my wall, which is helpful when you’re figuring things out. We shoot everything out of order, and it’s nice to know where you’re going the whole time.

“Sophie and I really wanted to make sure, since she’s Australian, that our accents met somewhere hopefully in the middle. Around the house we would speak in that accent back and forth to one another, trying to make it work in one world.”

What she hopes people take away from the film:

“I really love that the film spans two generations of women. While I was making it, I thought a lot about how Mary Beth is scared of women and femininity. Something the story is trying to talk about is not to be scared of that, and embracing the women around you. Even if they’re different than you or if they come from a different time, have different mentality or morale, we’re most powerful when we fuck with one another.”

‘Blow The Man Down’ Star Margo Martindale On The “Psycho” Roles She Loves & The Power Of Older Women — Tribeca Studio

With their first feature, Blow the Man Down, Bridget Savage Cole and Danielle Krudy sought to pay tribute to their mothers, and all the important women in their lives.

Awash with the salty grime of the Maine fishing village where it’s set, the film centers on the Connolly Sisters—Priscilla (Sophie Lowe) and Mary Beth (Morgan Saylor)—who are grieving the loss of their mother, and suddenly find that they have a crime to cover up.

In the process, the pair run into Enid Nora Devlin (Margo Martindale), a local crime boss, and a great character for the actress to sink her teeth into. “My draw was, I love murder,” Martindale deadpanned, sitting down at Deadline’s Tribeca Studio with Cole, Krudy, Saylor and Lowe. “It’s all I read, and when I got to be part of something that had a murder in it, it makes me very happy.”

For Cole, this character presented an opportunity to reflect an important truth, with regard to her own experience growing up. “The people with the biggest powers who could really scare us, a lot of them did not look like people you would normally see in a movie as powerful,” the director shared. “They’re in dainty, quaint kitchens and hair salons, so we wanted to sort of celebrate that.”

Like Martindale, Saylor and Lowe were strongly compelled by their characters, and the unique world in which they existed. Even more powerful, for Saylor, was the story of sisters at the film’s heart—sisters who are close, who have grown up together, and who may be growing apart. “It was something I read maybe three years ago now,” she said of the script, “and immediately fell in love with.”

And while Martindale certainly relished the opportunity to play a role “with some psycho in it,” this film brought much more to the table than that. Centered on a mostly female cast, the film was a testament to the power of women, including women of a certain age. “I’m really driven by powerful, older women, and I think that the more we see of that, the better the world is,” she said. “Women don’t get bad and crippled…Well, they might get crippled, but they don’t lose their power. They only get more powerful, and I think that’s important for young women to see, and for the world to see.”

Also starring Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Annette O’Toole, Gayle Rankin and June Squibb, Blow the Man Down premiered yesterday at the Tribeca Film Festival.
