The movies saved my life. I grew up in the great depression, the only child of a pair of star crossed lovers. My father lost his job. My mother drank. They fought. The movies were my escape.
People know that I have a great love for cinema. Not just for commercial cinema, but for the ‘cinema d’auteur.’ But to me, two of the great ‘auteurs’ are actually actors and they both happen to be French. One is Alain Delon and the other is Jean-Paul Belmondo.
Movies are boring. It’s like watching paint dry. I did a little role in a movie, and it was eight lines. I was there for three days. It’s just horrible. Television is 15 hour days. Movies are 18 hour days. And it’s 18 hours of doing not a thing.
I watch a lot of movies. I’ve watched movies since I was a kid. My dad brought me to the theater once a week. Always – it was a must. So I think that influenced me a lot to be an actor.
If making movies was easier, there’d be a lot more good movies. So you kind of learn that if it’s just a good script, or if it’s just a good producer, that’s not always enough. You need an entire team of creative people coming together.
I always shoot my movies with score as certainly part of the dialogue. Music is dialogue. People don’t think about it that way, but music is actually dialogue. And sometimes music is the final, finished, additional dialogue. Music can be one of the final characters in the film.

‘Seanan McGuire’ is my real name; if I’m being silly and third-person about it, she’s a frequently cranky, foul-mouthed Disney Princess on vacation in the real world, where she studies diseases, cuddles reptiles, watches lots of horror movies, and goes to as many corn fields as possible.
My dream role would probably be a psycho killer, because the whole thing I love about movies is that you get to do things you could never do in real life, and that would be my way of vicariously experiencing being a psycho killer. Also, it’s incredibly romantic.
Movies are a complicated collision of literature, theatre, music and all the visual arts.
Reality in movies is the reality of the story you’re telling, so it may not match the reality as we know it, but the reason there’s art is that it tries to bring some kind of understanding of all the suffering and joys and pain that we go through. Storytelling brings some value to it.
When I began making films, they were just movies: ‘What’s the new movie? What are you doing?’ Now they’re called ‘adult dramas.’
There’s something strange about theater. My characters consistently demonize elitism, but of course it’s taking place in a theater where only so many people can see it.

I collect movies. So I have all those in binders. I don’t have the DVDs out. I put them in binders.
Some movies I see today have the most dramatic plot points but the actors are not playing them dramatically.
I was living in London and I thought, ‘There’s nothing here for me anymore.’ I don’t want to become this actor who’s going to be doing this occasional good work in the theater and then ever diminishing bad television. I thought I’d rather do bad movies than bad television because you get more money for it.
When you have movies who help, who give belief and show strength, it’s good.
Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government asked me to serve as a fellow at its Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics, and Public Policy. After my varied and celebrated career in television, movies, publishing, and the lucrative world of corporate speaking, being a fellow at Harvard seemed, frankly, like a step down.

John Carpenter had a lot to do with putting social messages into genre movies.
In the second half of primary school, I liked live-action shows and giant-monster movies, and then in junior high, I got into regular movies.

That was the moment I wanted to use bitcoin: when I saw Harriet Tubman on a $20 bill. It’s like, when you see all the slave movies, it’s like, why you gotta keep reminding us about slavery? Why don’t you put Michael Jordan on a $20 bill?

Always make the audience suffer as much as possible.
As an actor, the ambition is to play interesting characters. And in the indie genre world, the budgets are low. That allows me, as an actor, not to have a financial value behind my name, to justify me being in these bigger parts for these types of movies.
A. J. Bowen
