Shockya.com recently conducted an interview with Kane to discuss See No Evil 2 in an extreme detail! There has yet to be an interview that allows Kane to talk this much about the movie, so I definitely suggest you check out the entire thing.
Here’s a little teaser for you:
SY: Were you able to have any rehearsal time with Jen and Sylvia, or your co-stars, to discuss your characters’ backstories and relationships as you were shooting?
GJ: Yes, absolutely. In fact, there are two scenes in the movie that weren’t in the original script that have become my favorite in the movie. The reason they’re in the movie is because Jen and Sylvia wanted to put them in. They’re the scenes that really flush out Jacob, and what’s going on with him. Then I lobbied pretty heavily to get them put in, as well.
It was funny that when these scenes were added, the higher-ups were like, “Man, you got those scenes written pretty quickly.” But Jen and Sylvia had already written them long before then, and were just putting them in. (laughs) In a lot of respects, I think the three of us were of the same mindset when it came to that.
Than, of course, they were also working with veteran actors and people really liked, like Danielle. That’s the wonderful thing about great directors-they’re open for input from the actors. The director may have a vision, but it’s up to the actors to make it come to life and carry it out. So the actors have to be comfortable with that vision. But sometimes the actors will have better ideas, because they’re actually the people making it happen. The thing about a great director is that they have that great security and confidence to say, “Yes, that’s a good idea, let’s do that.”
