Last week we got to sit down with one of the stars of the new Richard Bates Jr. movie King Knight Amanda Sarafyan, hope you enjoy the interview.
AJ: Hey Angela, thanks for joining us today.
Angela: Yeah, thank you so much for having me.
AJ: How did you get involved with King Knight?
Angela: Well, I had gotten the script from my agent and it went from there. Before I had gotten the script, I did not know any of Richard Bate’s stuff. Then I sat down and watched some and this is so different from his other stuff, I was excited to be a part of it.
AJ: Yeah, I got this movie and was like “Wait, is this Richard Bate’s directing this? Did they send me the wrong credits” lol.
AJ: Also, how was it like working with Matthew Gray Gubler? The chemistry you two had was seamless and felt like you two grew up together.
Angela: Yeah, he was terrific and we did not rehearse at all, so that was amazing you felt that way with us and watching it.
AJ: Then you got Andy Milonakis on set as well, when I was a kid I remember his tv show being extremely popular, so how was he on set?
Angela: Oh my goodness, he was so sweet. The way you see him in the movie is compelling and he was like that in real life as well. Such a sweet and nice guy it was awesome working with him as well.
AJ: How did you and the cast respond when you got news this would debut at Fantasia?
Angela: For me I had to research Fantasia, because I am not a part of the world like some of the other cast was, then when I found out what it was all about I became excited and it sucks I have to zoom in to the premiere but it’s fantastic that it’s playing at such a wonderful festival.
AJ: Well, Angela thanks again for joining us and congratulations on King Knight.
