Back to One

A podcast about acting -- just the work. by Peter Rinaldi

Back To One, Episode 282, Ben and Suzanne, A Reunion in 4 Parts star Anastasia Olowin On the 10-Year Journey to Bring the SXSW Hit to the Screen

The Brooklyn-based actor Anastasia Olowin stars in Shaun Seneviratne’s Ben and Suzanne, A Reunion in 4 Parts, which just had its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival. She has such a command of the screen and brings so much life to her character, it’s hard to believe this is her first feature film. On this episode, she takes us back to her training at NYU’s Experimental Theater Wing, her eight years producing and acting in new work for the stage, and the 10-year journey to bring Ben and Suzanne to the screen. She talks about the collaborative process at the heart of the production, her fascination with various kinds of stories, what it means to be a “how” not “why” actor, and much more.
