Holliday Grainger: Why Bonnie Parker would have gone on Big Brother (source for more)
We all know the fate of Bonnie and Clyde, the young outlaws who became media sensations during the lowest ebb of the 1930s American Depression. But that hasn’t curbed the public fascination with their story, even 80 years on. The latest dramatisation – Bonnie and Clyde – is a slick US-produced affair with Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger as the notorious duo, starring alongside Hollywood heavyweights Holly Hunter and William Hurt.
Back in their heyday, a large part of the national obsession was the glamorous image the pair purveyed. Before she met Clyde, Bonnie harboured aspirations of being a film star and, according to Grainger, it was that frustrated dream that nudged her towards a life of crime. “She was smart and creative but there was nothing open for women then. She could have been a secretary or a waitress, on the lookout for a good man. Clyde and this life of crime gave her a lot more control – there’s that way of taking your life into your own hands and being anti-establishment and free-spirited. Rebellious.”

~VB: What was your favourite part of playing Bonnie Parker?
HG: It’s been the first time in ages I got the chance to do action stuff! And it’s also about research. I always love the research, get my head in another character in another time, and choosing between the real character and the character in the script. She’s such a strong character, so interesting, so many layers, from needy innocence to selfish manipulation. I mean, just her character itself felt like an absolute joy and a privilege to play.
My favourite aspect of filming was getting to do the stunts and stuff; I have never really gotten the chance to do that before. It felt like I spent 9 weeks running in heels in the forest, shooting guns and dancing. It felt like this whirlwind of an action adventure!
VB: What was the most difficult part of playing Bonnie Parker?
HG: At first I thought that it was the accent but once I got on set, I’ve done so much research into that, I stuck with the accent all day on set and so after the first week, it was coming naturally.
I think the biggest challenge was knowing that I had to represent panic attacks and it’s quite scary. Because when I was talking to people, it is all about the feelings of the panic attacks. It is hard to decide how to physically portray it. I was more scared of making it look realistic.
