Talking giants with Steven Spielberg

The UK press conference for The BFG. Seated L-R are: Penelope Wilton, Rebecca Hall, Steven Spielberg, Ruby Barnhill, Mark Rylance and Chris Hewitt (moderator).

It was fun to be at the UK press conference for The BFG yesterday (July 16), and to finally get a question to Steven Spielberg. I’ve been present at several of his press conferences in the past – including Saving Private Ryan and War Horse – during which I’ve singularly failed to be chosen to ask anything.

Yesterday at Claridges I asked, “What was it about Mark Rylance that made you want to cast him as the BFG?” And to Mark Rylance I asked, “What did you think you could bring to the character?” The question begins at about 7:32. It’s hard to hear my actual question so why not watch the video with subtitles? The result is hilarious…
