Ahead of the release of Damien Chazelle’s latest film First Man, released in cinemas this week, we sat down with Olivia Hamilton, one of the stars of the film to discuss her role as Pat White, wife of NASA astronaut Edward Higgins White, in the epic blockbuster.
First Man tells the largely untold story of Neil Armstrong’s personal story as he attempts to make history by becoming the first man on the moon. Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy star as husband and wife Neil and Janet Armstrong as Chazelle’s masterpiece delicately touches upon their own relationship, Armstrong’s personal mission and explores in great detail, the lengths that The USA were prepared to go to beat the former Soviet Union in The Space Race.
It was an absolute delight to be able to discuss the film in such detail with Olivia Hamilton, who gives a great performance as Pat White and it was fascinating to hear the amount of preparation that she put into the role. Check out our interview with Olivia Hamilton right here!
