AEkinci: What affected you the most from the movie? What would you give up for fame?
Scarlett Johansson: The story line is very interesting. When I was offered the part, I didn’t think about it for a long time to accept it. The cast is amazing. It’s a pleasure to work with British actors. The story of the movie really attracted me. What people do for fame, how they work so hard for it all their lives and how they stay all alone at the end was freaky. As for fame, a lot is already sacrificed for it. I don’t think more or less can be done for it. Everyone pays a price for it…
AEkinci: You have a different part in this movie. You are in a functional role among the main characters but not in a lead role. How did you decide to play in the movie?
Michael Caine: I worked with Christopher Nolan before. I thought it would be nice to work with him on this movie. Actually, when you are at my age and my position, you get to choose what you want. The story is also great. It sends a message to many faux-pas in the illusion world. As for playing the lead, the character I play, Cutter, is the audience itself. He narrates, he gets involved in the story or he just watches the events. I think Cutter is the strongest character.
AEkinci:The Prestige movie is interesting in terms of casting. How did you decide on the cast?
Chris Nolan: Almost all of the actors/actresses have worked together before. I also worked with some of them before. We worked with Christian Bale and Michael Caine in Batman Begins. Scarlett was the first name that came to my mind for the role of Olivia. I am very happy with the casting. Ever one I wanted to have in my movie accepted to be in it. Even my newborn child played in the movie.
