A Few Minutes…On Camera with Holliday Granger; star of ‘The Finest Hours’

Posted in Interviews, Movies, Theatrical by - January 29, 2016

It’s the kind of scenario that is almost impossible to imagine.  What if you’re loved one had the kind of job, that they just might not come back from?

The Finest Hours is that kind of movie that dives into the real life coast guard rescue that went against the odds as a four man crew on a boat with room for twelve, saved 32 men from a tanker that got split in two during a terrible blizzard.

I got the chance to sit down with star Holliday Granger who plays Miriam Webber; the wife to Chris Pine’s Bernie Webber and together they make a unique couple who have to figure out how to love in each other in the face of potential disasters each and every day.

We talked about her experiences on set, the pressures of this being one of her first leading roles, the challenges in mastering the Boston accent from the 1950’s and so much more.
