Good Director and Good Actress Working Together

Gina Wilhelm Actress - Good Director and Good Actress Working Together

Maggie Gyllenhaal was a little nervous to work with Oliver Stone until he gave her some magic words. "I give you the power of Zeus." That seemed to do the trick.

Actresses have to learn how to work with directors when they get on the set. Emily Blunt of "The Young Victoria" has learned to be more vocal.

Patricia Clarkson will only work with directors who operate with mutual respect. Samantha Morton appreciates a director who has confidence in him- or herself.

Saoirse Ronan of "The Lovely Bones," appreciated how emotionally involved director Peter Jackson got in the scene. He went to her between takes and wiped a tear from her cheek.

"He has this childlike quality to him that gives everyone a new energy on the set," Ronan explains.
