Interview with Actress Emma Bates

Joss Whedon only had twelve days off from filming The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble in the UK) to going into the editing room and post-producing the life out of what became the third highest grossing film of all time. His idea of a break was to adapt one of his favourite Shakespeare plays, Much Ado About Nothing, in his back garden, in black and white, with his friends. In said film, he cast all of his friends and Cinema Sauce caught up with Emma Bates and Joshua Zar who star in Joss’s back garden, something both actors are now very used to. They star alongside Clark Gregg, Nathan Fillion and Amy Acker but they’re all great friends who, despite their hectic schedules, catch up as regularly as possible and, when they can, perform together. This film is that continuation of Shakespeare productions that happen in his back garden so often. First up here’s what Emma had to say and we’ll follow this up tomorrow with Joshua’s on-set experience.

The full Emma Bates interview is up on Cinema Sauce.
