❝Photo shoots are still something I’m getting used to, because I don’t think you’re being a character - it’s much more exposing than playing a part in a film or in a play. With acting you take bits of you, bits and pieces that you can draw from your own life, your past and history, or whatever it is that’s inside you - you then mix all of that with imagination. You explore the ways that you’re similar and different to the character and how you can gel the two things together and put yourself into a new body, a new voice, a new accent. It’s a mishmash of your interpretation and things that are inside you.❞ — Joe Alwyn
Joe Alwyn In The Last Letter From Your Lover (2021)
“William Bowery is Joe, as we know. And Joe plays piano beautifully, and he’s always just playing and making things up and kind of creating things. And ‘exile’ was crazy ‘cause Joe had written that entire piano part, that… [scats] and it was singing the Bon Iver part, the 'I can see you standing honey, with his arms around your body. Laughing but the jokes not funny at all’… yeah he [Joe] was just singing it. And I was entranced and asked if, we could keep writing that one. It was pretty obvious that it should be a duet 'cause he’s got such a low voice and it sounded really good sung down there in that register. And then, we’re really, really, really big Bon Iver fans. And you know, we know that Aaron knows him.”
