Joel Edgerton Miscellany (& a little Dash of Nash)
“I like to find at least one moment for a character. If they’re judged as a ‘bad’ character, I like to find some insight as to, ‘What’s their engine? What’s their motivation to be that way?’ But also, I like the audience to at least find one moment where they relate…For me, that was over the loss of Myrtle Wilson; that Tom maybe was surprised at how he really felt.”
