From co-writer/director Jack Plotnick, the quirky indie film Space Station 76 tells the story of Omega 76′s new assistant captain Jessica Marlowe (Liv Tyler), whose arrival inadvertently creates tension among everyone at the space station. Jessica’s intelligence and unwavering focus on her work confuses the Captain (Patrick Wilson) and upsets Misty (Marisa Coughlan), especially as it becomes clear that her husband Ted (Matt Bomer) and daughter Sunshine (Kylie Rogers) are finding themselves drawn to Jessica.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Liv Tyler talked about how she came to be a part of Space Station 76, why she wanted to work with Jack Plotnick, the visual style of the film, how her character ends up at this space station and in the position that she’s in, how much she adores Matt Bomer, shooting at a former porn studio, and being able to add to her character’s wardrobe from her own closet. She also talked about what drew her to the HBO series The Leftovers, getting the next script just a couple of days before they’d shoot the episode, and learning to act on impulse. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
