JES­SICA CHAS­TAIN

Lu­cille Sharpe in Crim­son Peak

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Re­views -

Lu­cille is such an in­ter­est­ing char­ac­ter...

She’s a woman that’s deeply rooted in the past. And she’s not able to move for­ward from what­ever scars… For Lu­cille, to leave Allerdale Hall or to be away from her brother equals death.

Lu­cille’s gowns are im­mac­u­late. Did they help to put you into the right mind­set?

yes. guillermo gave us each a bi­og­ra­phy. So I have se­crets about her that thomas Sharpe doesn’t know; only guillermo and I know what hap­pened to her when she was 16. But in that bi­og­ra­phy was her likes and dis­likes. She liked tight, re­stric­tive cloth­ing. I saw it like a baby that is a bit out of con­trol un­til it’s swad­dled, and then it calms down. If she doesn’t con­fine her­self, she’s this un­con­trol­lable nerve.

Did the char­ac­ter linger with you af­ter­wards?

I got de­pressed. the sad­ness that this char­ac­ter has is so im­mense. And I’d be wear­ing seven-inch plat­forms and re­ally tight corsets and a wig that went down to my feet. I was al­ways in phys­i­cal and emo­tional pain. So when I fin­ished, I needed to just sit in the sun and be with my loved ones and feel happy again. Jamie Gra­ham
