Actress, Rose Reid, spoke with us about her time on FINDING YOU from the day she auditioned to the last day of filming. Having always loved Ireland and read the book growing up, this was the perfect fit! Also the lead of the film, Rose brought the positivity and motivation to set, inspiring team effort and positive vibes! Keep reading on to learn more about the beautiful and bright, Rose Reid…
Why did you audition for FINDING YOU?
I’ve always loved Ireland. Its rich history, magical landscape, and music that can be both haunting and joyful. I’d read the book when I was younger so I was already familiar with the story and was really drawn to Finley’s relationship with Mrs. Sweeney. I thought that was such a unique friendship.
Did you book the role you had auditioned for? Tell us more about this.
On set, what was one of your favorite moments and why?
Taffe’s Pub, where we shot all of the pub scenes, is a real pub. While we shot in Carlingford, the whole cast and crew would eat in the pub or go out after filming one day, and the owner of the pub would typically hang out with us. It was just such a fun experience, being able to kind of act like a local in this beautiful Irish town, set between mountains and the sea.
What comes next?
I’ll be working on a film this fall that’s looking like it will take me back to the UK! I can’t wait to share more.
