Carrie Coon plays Margo Dunn in the Gone Girl movie. Margo has a brother named Nick played by Ben Affleck. The plot of the film briefly tells the events that took place when Nick’s wife suddenly disappeared. The director of the movie is David Fincher.
Coon, who had the opportunity to work with David Fincher in her first film in her career, explains that although she had little knowledge about filming, she understood the situation better by realizing that Fincher was a perfectionist like herself.
In addition, throughout the filming, Fincher became a teacher to Coon and helped Coon gain significant experience in her career.
Although Fincher was a good teacher for Coon, Coon also spoke about how he avoided asking questions onset and who inspired him to do it. The actress explained she was inspired by Tyler Perry, who asked sincerely about what was in his mind on the set. Coon understood that she cannot always be the one who knows everything and started to ask questions.
Here’s what she said:
“One of my crosses to bear is that I’m a real know-it-all, and it takes a lot of humility for me to admit when I don’t know something. The older I get, the more humble I get and the easier that’s getting to admit that I’m wrong. And I have to say, it was really inspiring to be on set with Tyler Perry because Tyler, who I love, would always say to David, ‘I don’t know what that word means.’ And I learned from that!”
“I learned, let’s cut through the bullshit and do the work. Don’t let your ego get in the way. So I learned a lot from the way people around me were asking questions and because David made me feel that I belonged there, that he wouldn’t have cast me. That’s what you can trust too, is that he wouldn’t have you there if he didn’t think you could do it. I had to just trust that instead.”
