Michael Fassbender on Kelly Reilly in ‘Flight’

SAG Preview: Actors on Actors - Fassbender on Reilly

The thing that always lingers after a job is the talent we encounter. When Kelly and I worked on “Eden Lake” together, it required us to go to extreme places, and so I have been exposed to Kelly’s talent in abundance. It was unadorned, fearless and brilliant.

In “Flight” she navigates expertly, a complex and harrowing journey on which she takes her character, but once again so distinctively and personally that she effortlessly takes the audience along too. Kelly can go from broken bird to warrior in the blink of an eye. Always with the greatest of charm and intelligence.
