With director Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger opening this Wednesday, Disney held a big press junket Santa Fe, New Mexico.  While I’ve done a lot of interviews, it was incredibly cool to talk to the cast and filmmakers with the beautiful New Mexico desert behind us.  If you’ve missed the trailers, the story focuses on John Reid (Armie Hammer) surviving an attack, being saved by Native American warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp), and the two teaming up to fight injustice.  As you can see in this featurette, the production went to enormous lengths to film the majority of The Lone Ranger practically, and they shot at some amazing locations all around the country.  The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, and Helena Bonham Carter.

During my interview with Wilson, she talked about filming on location, if her friends want to visit her on set, deleted scenes, if she gets nervous when auditioning, if people look at her differently after Luther, her upcoming film Saving Mr. Banks, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, if you missed my interviews with Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, or producer Jerry Bruckheimer, click the links.

Ruth Wilson:

  • I joke around about the matte painting behind us
  • Since she’s done nothing but talk about Lone Ranger, I start by asking her about Luther and how that role changed things for her
  • Did people now look at her differently because of her role on Luther
  • Does she get nervous when auditioning
  • Did she buy herself a present after she booked the Lone Ranger job
  • Which location impressed her the most
  • Did a lot of her friends want to visit her while she was filming with Johnny Depp
  • Talks about her role in Saving Mr. Banks and what it’s about
  • Does she know about any deleted scenes in Lone Ranger
