AND YOU WERE THE FIRST CHOICE FOR THIS ROLE?
SD: Yes. Clearly. EO: Nah, the other girl was busy. They couldn't work out the schedule. SD: I made a bunch of offers. . . . No, I wanted to get someone who people hadn't seen before.
WAS ACTING A NATURAL CHOICE FOR YOU, GIVEN WHO YOUR SISTERS ARE?
EO: I was that kid in the family who was always the performer, so I just kinda did it.
WAIT —YOU WERE THE PERFORMER?
EO: Yeah. It's ironic, but I was the one with the ballet lessons, the singing lessons, and the endless kids' theater camps that everyone had to go see, which were terrible, but so fun. And I grew up with a really creative group of friends. We all made movies and plays and stuff like that together since we were really little. Then I started going to conservatory when I was 16. I had a really great teacher in high school, but I wanted real conservatory training. And so I've gone to four now. And I had no intention on working until graduating college, but then it kinda just happened organically in school because I went to the [Off Broadway] Atlantic Theater Company and they had me audition for things that they were producing as a student understudy. So I started doing that my sophomore year of college, and started working the summer after my junior year of college.
SO ACTING IS NOW YOUR CAREER?
EO: I love to cook, and I have a dream to some day open a restaurant in Moscow.
EO: The financing there is a lot more accessible. Depending on who you know.
