OF ‘ESCAPE AT DANNEMORA’ ON SHOWTIME AND THE MOVIE NETWORK
What was it like for you to film at actual upstate New York locations where events in “Escape at Dannemora” took place? Well, for me, it felt kind of desolate. There was the prison itself and everything that happens in the prison, and the kind of sadness that I think everyone kind of experiences. But even around there, there was a ripple effect where a lot of industry had moved out. All these people were just working in the prisons, and there wasn’t a lot to do. Also, just the cold – the intense cold of that area – made me feel like my character is kind of bored and wants to feel alive. I’d hear stories of all these people that were having affairs, whether they were guards or ... all these different stories. Because I think we, as a species, want to feel alive. The physicality of your character’s involvement with the prison escapees is a major element of “Escape at Dannemora.” How did you deal with that? It’s scary to go to that place, but also, I found it fascinating when I was looking at research. There’s a million porn stars who are 20 years People are actually looking for something else.

It was a part of Tilly I really wanted to look at.
