Amelia Eve - Gold Rush Virtual Event
So, I think most of the Amelia Eve events are done for the day. If not, I'll add to this tomorrow, but I'm going to post what I've gathered so far here under the cut.
One important thing to note: Everyone agrees that Amelia is the kindest and sweetest person out there. She's also adorable.
Her dog's name is Nala, like from the Lion King.
The domestic Dani/Jamie scenes from episode nine were all shot in one day.
The lake scene felt the most real. She had hoped she wouldn't have to swim wearing jeans, since they're so heavy when wet. She wound up filming wearing a scuba suit, denim jeans, Converse, and a weight belt.
Amelia feels Jamie's Dad (Dennis) influenced how she carried herself.
The offer of company and pinky swear scene was an improvised scene.
Wasn't aware she was the love interest when she booked the part.
Didn't think of it as a lesbian role - just two people who loved each other - focusing on the love and not the type of relationship is why she thinks it worked. “Even once I found out I never thought of it as a lesbian role. I didn’t think of that side of things. I just was like this woman loves this woman We were just like these people love each other. That’s kind of where it starts and ends.”
Apparently, she's found more than one thing out on the street. There's the red couch that she posted on her Instagram ages ago, a XBOX 360, and a plant that she adopted and named Octopussy.
She plays a lot of GTA on the XBOX 360 she found.
She would love to work with Mike Flanagan again. He wasn't able to be on set much.
Recommends the book Just Kids by Patti Smith. All Patti Smith's works. "It's just dope - can't deny it! That'll keep you busy for a while."
Said "You alright Poppins" in Jamie's voice
She used her mum's wedding dress to be Bride of Chucky one year for Halloween. She's thinking of doing Three Blind Mice this year with her sisters.
Might have believed in ghosts before, but after filming Bly Manor, she blames odd noises on the cat. One odd (ghostly) thing that happened on set was that the lights went off all over set for some reason.
The song she'd use to describe today is Baby by Misun
Wants to play an assassin.
Wants to do period pieces or biographical.
Has a clunker of a car in real life.
Due to Covid, her life hasn't really changed that much since doing Bly.
Doesn't like Yorkshire tea. She prefers PG tea.
Asked for an uplifting quote: Be the change you want to see.
For the Q&A, she missed being able to see everyone (cameras were off and questions were submitted online).
Was asked if she'd listened to anymore Taylor Swift since last con. "I'm sure it's lovely, but it just isn't my jam"
It was her decision to wear Dani's pink shirt and Victoria loved it.
Her favorite movie as a kid is either Hocus Pocus or Dumbo.
Is going to buy Jamie's Blondie shirt and grow moonflowers
Knows nothing about Harry Potter.
"Hopefully Leopard Skin is going to come out next year."
She's really into lilies at the moment.
Her favorite color is blue/teal.
Was drinking a Corona beer while chatting at one point.
Parts of the proposal scene were unscripted - all the kisses Jamie gave Dani after she said yes.
Would have loved to stay a brunette because she loved it, but her roots didn't let her. "No one wants to see that."
Feels lucky to have us (all her fans). Even though she doesn't spend much time online, she feels like we always get her back.
Her favorite thing about Jamie is the way she loves the people in her life.
Wants to play Ripley if they ever remake Alien.
Says she'll make a post on social media and then run away from her phone.
Says that the proposal scene was her other favorite to film besides the lake scene. Says it was a standout scene, was so special because it was a time where Dani and Jamie were both truly happy. How the emotions cam naturally while filming.
One of her favorite quotes: "A weed is a plant out of place."
Hasn't seen Imagine Me & You, but loves Lena Headey.
Was wearing overalls.
Asked what it was like working with Carla again "It was amazing! Do you know how beautiful she looks on tv? She is so much prettier and amazing in real life."
That's all I have at the moment. Let me know if I missed anything! Enjoy!
