WSJ Speakeasy: MOONRISE KINGDOM's Young Star Jared Gilman
Posted June 25, 2012
Jared Gilman was 12-years-old when he was cast as one of the young leads of Wes Anderson's MOONRISE KINGDOM. Now at 13, his life has changed considerably. Mariam Brillantes, for The Wall Street Journal's culture blog Speakeasy, arranged for the young star to answer questions from his tween fans. For example, fans wanted to know what it felt like when he heard he was cast:
Well, my mom was picking me up from school, mind you I'm in the school parking lot ... when my dad told me over my mom's Bluetooth, I started screaming and crying and laughing at the same time. Like I said before, I'm very contained. That's one of the few moments when I actually exploded. I just don't get very emotional that often.
