Alyson and Megan Hutchings (actress and animal rescue advocate) sit down to talk about a scene from the 2006 Australian movie, Candy, about two people (played by Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish) deeply in love with each other and heroin. You can watch the scene HERE. They talk about the people who’ve struggled with addiction in their own lives and the superlative acting that’s happening in this scene and film. They also talk about collaboration, being on set and how actors can elevate material and make it sing, like Cornish does here. It’s a great chat about movies and how much we love them. Join us!
