HollywoodChicago.com: So you’re playing the ‘right hand man’ of Gary Oldman’s Father Solomon in the upcoming ‘Red Riding Hood.’ In working with an actor of Oldman’s caliber, did you have any difficulties meshing with his acting style or process?
Holmes: Gary Oldman is a king among men, he’s such a professional. He made me feel like I was one of his peers. You never know what you’re going to get when working with other actors, like ‘don’t look me in the eye,’ but Gary was the complete opposite. We’d go to dinner, and I would pick his brain, and he gave me some great advice. It was like a acting workshop, observing Gary Oldman on a daily basis, always giving 100 percent even in rehearsals. He set the tone and pace for every one on set. We were that much more focused and prepared being with him.You can check out the rest of the interview here.
Back in December, Holmes discussed Red Riding Hood in another interview, which you can find here.
