A couple of small-but-lovely pix from the set of Noah, and a long interview from SeaCoastOnline – here’s an excerpt with the bit concerning Russell; you can read the rest at the site:
Skylar Burke’s first acting gig was as Skylar and Tiny Tim in “A Christmas Carol” at the Player’s Ring in 2011. Her second project was “Noah,” the film, in which she plays Russell Crowe’s, aka Noah’s, daughter Ila.
“Noah,” scheduled for a March 28 release, was filmed in the summer of 2012. The 11-year-old spent a month on set in Iceland, and then spent a few additional weeks in New York.
“It was just this amazing experience,” says Skylar, a Greenland resident. “It was probably the highlight of my life and will always be the highlight of my life.”
Skylar plays the younger version of Ila. Emma Watson performs the older incarnation.
“I really like Emma Watson and I love Russell Crowe. He was fantastic,” Skylar says. “He called me his monkey because he had to carry me around.”
But she “loved, loved, loved,” the two younger co-cast members with whom she worked during the Iceland filming.
“They were basically my foster brothers, Gavin Casalegno from Texas and Nolan Gross from L.A. We stay in touch,” she says of the two more seasoned performers. “We spent a lot of time together, so I got to know them well. We fit together really well, like a puzzle piece.”
There were plenty of “Kid Parties” with beanbag and pillow wars at the hotel where the young actors stayed. The trio plans a rematch at the film’s premier…….
