SXSW 2011 Video Interview: SOURCE CODE actress Michelle Monaghan
Throughout her career, Michelle Monaghan has stolen hearts (as well as a few laughs) playing the damsel in distress who doesn't quite understand why she is in distress (or even realize she's in distress in the first place), from KISS KISS BANG BANG to EAGLE EYE to MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III. But never has she done it quite like this. For Duncan Jone's SOURCE CODE, Monaghan plays Christina Warren - a commuter on a train caught in the middle of a terror plot and subsequent attempt to understand the past in order to change the future. Unfortunately for Warren, she thinks its just another day with her friend Sean. But, as she soon discovers and forgets and discovers again, this is not a normal day...and that is not Sean. Fortunately for Monaghan, she was able to have a bit of a unique approach to the whole thing, not to mention a bit of fun.
Check out our recent interview with the actress where she discusses what it was like to play the "straight woman" of the film, how SOURCE CODE really is the perfect date movie, and the inevitable question of what she would do given the choice to relive any 8 minutes of her life.
