Julia Steels It is not uncommon to admit that he made a significant mistake during filming Save the last dance.
With the cast and crew based in Chicago for the duration of the shoot, there were more than a few hot nights in the city, the actress revealed on E! News included in the shared zoom chat with screen love interest Sean Patrick Thomas. “Although, guess who missed out on a lot of fun? I,” Stiles said. “Because I was going to do so little good.”
Every evening the choreographer of the film Fatima Robinson (The woman was given the task of liking ریہانہ, Ten And Leona Lewis Looks good) will call to call that she’s taking Thomas, Kerry Washington, Frederic Starr “On tour to all the clubs in Chicago” and other cast member styles called back. “And I know it will be until dawn. And I was like, ‘ Can’t. ”
Determined to nail down every step of her dance scene, the then-19-year-old will beg to stay fresh in rehearsal, but 20 years later, FOMO is still strong, a feeling that has squashed her costar. Too little to do.
All the secrets you have forgotten Save the last dance
“We had a great time,” Thomas admitted. “Julia and I would probably shoot at 7 to 8 at night. I’ll be back at my place and I was starving and I’m tired and then I need to get a call. [dancer] Richmond [Talauega] Or Fatima and she’s like, ‘Go down in 20 minutes, we’re going out.’ It was like, ‘God, you’re going to make fun of me.’ But then when we got out there it was just incredible. “
So, yes, you can say Steels has some regrets.
Although none of them turn up to sign the 2001 project, one of them unknowingly auditioned during the filming. 10 Things I Hate You, Her 40-second table dance with Bogie Lewinstein’s party-providing director Thomas Carter With enough material to please her, she can nail the aspiring character of Juliard Ballerina Sarah. “I didn’t know it was my audition, but it seemed like it,” he joked.
And while the longtime dancer wanted to train one-on-one with Johnson (“I was like,”)Yes, I would love to get private dance classes! This was the story of Sarah – who was torn apart by her suburban existence and left in a suburb of Chicago where she finds a tragic course of hip-hop and racial inequality. Dr. Drake of the future – who wanted to step into those pointed shoes.
“I was really happy that we were able to get around in big business, otherwise we would have done a teen dance movie,” Steels explained. “This theme makes it different or different from your average dance movie. You still have fun, but there’s a lot more to it. And it gave me a lot of perspectives.” I opened up to something I had never considered before, which I think is very good. “
The film spent two weeks at the box office without a hitch Tom Hanks‘ Castway And more than 1,131 million in total, and two decades later, both feel superior that the message still resonates.
Steels points to a scene in which Derek’s sister Chanel (then played by the newborn New Washington) responds to Sarah’s claim that separate facts are different for whites and blacks. No, “That’s what it teaches you. We know differently.” When he didn’t use the term white privilege at the time, Steels noted, “Chanel definitely goes to school with Sarah, you know, ‘Oh, you think it’s all settled. But I really have to walk a mile in my shoes? “
At the end of the millennium, the racial pair was too small for a teenage flirtation, Thomas noted. “Still in 2021, you don’t see two big studio movies with a big ethnic couple,” he admitted. “It was remarkable for the time being.” And he appreciates that his story goes beyond stereotypes. “It wasn’t really about black and white, and it’s just as full,” he explained. “It was easy, it was sweet, it was pure. It made her innocent. And I think that’s what resonates.”
For steels That Was the main part of the film. As the high school senior works to regain her shaky self-esteem, “Sean’s character believes in Sarah,” he said. “They mean something to me that is deeper and really beautiful.”
And worked with Johnson on cracked extra-hip hop choreography Back Street BoysThe soundtrack reminds you, “You can do this, put your back to it,” and all those nights at STEPPS – it was just a good time.
“It was fun,” Thomas admitted. “I mean, I don’t know what’s going on with you, Julia, but a group of these dancers were hanging out with alcohol in my trailer and it was moving and my trailer cracked.”
“Don’t tell me that! Don’t do it Tell me “These things me!” Stiles expressed regret. “I wasn’t old. I couldn’t drink anyway. But just to know it was going on …”
At age 30, Thomas was able to do a lot of emotional work.
“I remember one night, especially when I was like, ‘Okay, okay. I’ll have a drink.’ “And then I went in and I had to make a movie and I was stupid that I, you know, would be exposed to unprofessional drunkenness. But the result was. And I realized, I understand what dancers do to pile themselves up. So, looking back, it seems to me that I was not becoming unprofessional, I was just trying to sort out the energy of the people who are trying to teach me. “
Because he welcomed any skill that would help Johnson nail his choreography.
“I’m not a dancer at all.” “And that’s why I was anxious not to eat it when it came to filming. So if they came and taught me things, I was anxious for it. Because I was scared to look completely dark. “
Despite years of training, Stiles was just as tough on himself, saying that ballet had never been a special suit for him. “There is one thing with dancers, you will never be good, you will never be right,” he explained. “You always pay regularly, that’s why I can never watch a movie again, because I’m going to have to criticize my harbor de brass or more.”
Thankfully, he has memories, so colorful and pink that neither he nor Thomas decided to step into Sarah and Derek’s shoes.
“I imagine, like, I’m doing it Debbie Allen Character in Fame“Now she’s a dance teacher and she’s breaking her stick against the ballet bar,” Stiles joked. And again, these would mean that you have to spend for these processes. “
It’s also a trapping point for Thomas, who said he often discovers where he thinks the two ended up, if, so to speak, Derek blocks his pediatric practice from this block. Opened from where Sarah once ruled the stage. “I can never think of anything that makes sense,” he admitted. “Unless they’re married somehow. But it seems so easy. So it’s hard for me to wrap my mind around how it will go. But, you know, if someone Come on in, take a look. “
Each actor has a whole slate. Steels, has wrapped up filming in season three of his fictional Sundance Now drama. Riviera Just a few days before the world closed due to cowardice, the camera assistant is currently housed in the husband. Preston J. CookCanada’s hometown is working Easter. The term “psychological terrorism” dates back to 2009 orphan With Coke and his 3-year-old son, he decided to quit his comfortable Qarun bubble. Stumble.
Thomas, meanwhile, is fit to work Joel QueenWarmly expected Macbeth (Acting) Denzel Washington And Francis McDormand Between campaigning for the presidency, as the owner of Scotland and his wife) Joe Biden And the next vice president Kamala Harris.
But what should come with the right script …
“They walk together, like at a grocery store,” Steels, “and they’re both adults and then you’ll take it from there.”
“In all seriousness,” said Thomas, the father Lola, 12, and لوکس10, actress with wife Onika Laurent Thomas“I would love to work with Julia again now. It would be a wonderful pleasure because we have grown up now.”
So they are saying that there is an opportunity. “It will be very special,” Steels agreed. “I’ll be a little nervous.”
And for any and most early Dawn adventure she would absolutely bring RSVP yes. “I want to Definitely “Go to cast parties, I would definitely find a nanny all night,” he insisted. “
