Interview: Lily Collins & Alex Sharp Talk “To the Bone”

Having gone through a similar battle, Lily Collins was immediately drawn to the role of Ellen, a teenager who suffers from anorexia in Marti Noxon’s To the Bone.  The film follows Ellen’s journey as she meets with an unconventional doctor who sets her up in a home full of larger than life characters who are going through their own journeys.  The biggest personality of them all is Luke, a former British ballet dancer who has an unusually high standard for jazz, played by Tony award winner Alex Sharp.

The duo share an undeniable chemistry as we sat down to discuss the conversational aspect of the film and the art of staying authentic to both the story and its major players.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
