Felicity Jones signed up for ‘The Midnight Sky’ because she loved the relationship between her and George Clooney’s characters.
In the film, Felicity, 37, plays the astronaut Sully, who learns on a trip back to Earth that humanity has been wiped out and whose only contact is the dying scientist Augustine (Clooney), and Felicity was particularly moved by the last scene between the two .
She told The Hollywood Reporter, “George had already shot his part, so I got to see what was really helpful and then let me know what I was doing on my side. It’s what I loved about the script, when I read it. It is. ” What made me do it was this central relationship the two had to find each other in.
“It was one that I thought about a lot, that I meditated on a lot to prepare. Fortunately, I shot it towards the end of our schedule so I really felt like I had Sully and I knew who she is and can give everything I have.
“In the beginning it was a meditation not only on Augustine’s relationship with Sully, but also on Sully’s relationship with her child. That is why blood is such a feature of the film Chemotherapy does. It’s a kind of understanding of those relationships, of what ultimately matters to us. “
George, 59, scripted Felicity’s pregnancy, and she feels it “should be”.
She said, “It feels like it should always be that Sully would be pregnant in it.”
