Lisa Arrindell: Thank you!
You look amazing.
Lisa Arrindell: I feel like I look amazing. That doesn’t very often!
Oh, it doesn’t? You’ve got to feel it inside and outside.
Lisa Arrindell: That’s right. So I’m so grateful.
Tell me about how you got involved with this amazing project? And what was it like? I mean, it’s Oprah!
Lisa Arrindell: I got a phone call on a Friday, saying, “Lisa, George C. Wolfe has asked to see a few people.” And I don’t know if even he asked. Maybe the casting director said, “There are three or four people that I’d like you to see.” He agreed to do it on a Sunday. I was so happy that I wasn’t away for the weekend because we don’t have auditions on Sundays. That doesn’t happen. I walked in there on a Sunday, and I sat in a room with him, and he asked me to read something. Now, if you’ve seen the film, my character doesn’t talk. At all!
No, I’ve seen it. Yeah.
Lisa Arrindell: So I had to read another character’s words. He said thank you. I told him how grateful I was that he would see me. Then I got a call a few days later that he wanted me to do that. To do Aunt Ethel. And that invitation was lovely. I cannot thank Oprah, and George, and HBO enough for inviting me to play the evil Aunt Ethel!
