IN BLOOM: Mia Rose Frampton On Her Blossoming Career, New Projects & More!

IN BLOOM: Mia Rose Frampton On Her Blossoming Career, New Projects & More!

mia-rose-frampton-feature-2014

When it comes to talent, they say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Such is the case with Mia Rose Frampton, daughter of legendary rocker Peter Frampton. While music may be in her blood, this vivacious and focused young woman has set her her sights on the world of acting. With outstanding role ‘Bridesmaids,’ a recurring role on the hit ABC Family show, “Make It or Break It,” as well as a supporting role in the indie film G.B.F. last year, alongside Pretty Little Liar’s Sasha Pieterse. An actress with no shortage of talent, she has established herself as a young actress on the rise in Hollywood and leaves her poised become a breakout star in 2014.

This summer she will hit the big screen in the highly anticipated Warner Brothers comedy flick, ‘Tammy,’ where she will star alongside Melissa McCarthy. The film centers on Tammy (Melissa McCarthy), after she loses her job learning that her husband has been unfaithful and her road trip adventure with her profane grandmother. Mia has a small, yet wonderfully funny supporting role and was hand picked by Melissa McCarthy herself. With amazing roles such as these under her belt, the future is very bright for Mia Rose. Jason Price recently caught up with her to discuss her blossoming career, her influences, working with some of the funniest actors in the business and what the future might hold for her!

Mia Rose Frampton

Mia Rose Frampton

They say pursuing a career in the entertainment industry isn’t for those who are faint of heart. What intrigued you about taking this journey?

I have been acting since I was around seven years old. I moved out to California when I was about eleven. I have to say that phrase is nothing but true! There is a lot of rejection. What I say to people thinking about getting into the business is you have to love it. You have to not be able to imagine yourself doing anything else. It has to be the only thing on your mind and if you didn’t do it; you wouldn’t be the same person. That is how I feel. I could never do any other job. The business is what makes me who I am and acting is a part of me. I don’t know what I would do without it. All the good also comes with a lot of bad and you have to learn to just let it go; if it is not this job, it will be the next. That is who I have thought about it.

What do you find yourself gravitating toward when it comes to inspiration these days?

I have an amazing team. My Mom is the most amazing mother anyone could ask for. She is the anti-stage mom! [laughs] She is always like, “If you want to get out of it; let’s go! We will pack up all of our stuff and it will be fine.” She moved out here with me for me. She is the most selfless person I have ever met. She is always telling me, “You can do this! I believe in you! If it is not this job, it will be the next.” I also have my amazing manager who has been with me the entire time and stuck with me through every peak and valley. I am super lucky and they are my family; my publicist, my manager and my agent. They are just so sweet and no matter what happens, they are always there for me. I am just really lucky!

When it comes to being an actor, who are some of your influences?

I am actually obsessed with Amy Adams right now because she is so versatile. She can sing and be a life-like version of a cartoon in ‘Enchanted’, she can be the voice of wisdom in ‘Her,’ or she can kick some serious ass in ‘American Hustle,’ where she is impersonating a British woman and you never know whose side she is on. She is just so amazing and so natural, just like Jennifer Lawrence, who is also in ‘American Hustle.’ They just have a natural quality to their acting that is so captivating. I hope that is something I hope to achieve with my future roles.

Many people will recognize you from your role on ‘Make It or Break It.” What was the experience like for you?

Honestly, it was the coolest experience because when I got the role, I immediately had training for two weeks. I love that sort of physical aspect to anything, so I was able to train with actual Olympic gymnasts. It was crazy! It was so hard! [laughs] I remember the day after I first started training. I was crying in an Epsom salts bath because I was so sore! [laughs] I have so much respect for gymnasts everywhere! It was so much fun and such a cool project. I was the youngest of the cast and everyone was super sweet. My character was even younger than me, so I was able to step back into my childhood and it was a lot of fun.

Catch Mia in 'Tammy' this summer!

Catch Mia in ‘Tammy’ this summer!

You continue to move forward and have a very cool project on the way this summer titled “Tammy.” In a way, it builds on what you had done in ‘Bridesmaids.’ How did it come about?

Everyone thinks I knew Melissa McCarthy from ‘Bridesmaids.’ However, I never met her! When she was looking for girls for this role, I was asked to audition. When I went in to audition, it was her and Ben Falcone, the director, who is also her husband. They are just the most amazing team you could ever hope to work with! They were so welcoming! When I auditioned, we improv’d and I read the scene once. I was leaving and they were like “Come back! Come back!” They literally ran after me as I was running to my car! [laughs] They said, “We want you to do it meaner!” I said, “I can do that! I can be as mean as you want!” [laughs] It was so much fun because they let me improv and that is my favorite type of acting. They said, “Don’t hold back! Just go at it!” That is what I did and thankfully she thought I was funny enough and picked me! It was great!

That’s great! Without spoiling anything, what can you tell us about your character in the film?

I can’t say much because what makes the part I have so funny is the element of surprise but at Tammy and her hard-drinking grandmother, played by Susan Sarandon, are on a road trip. They meet me along the way and I am not so nice! [laughs] I get to get physical in the scene and it was so much fun! That is all I can say but it was great to be someone I am totally not and get physical!

Is there a particular way you prepare yourself for a given role when you get the script in your hands?

Some actors do substitutions and put themselves, their actual selves, into the character. I can’t do that. You know, if it is an emotional scene, I can’t draw from my own personal life because it is too hard and it wouldn’t be pure in what the character is thinking. I am not a method actor or anything like that but I really enjoy being the character. I really enjoy diving into the character and the way they think. When I am at my best it is when I am truly the character in the scene, having fun and letting go. I feel for improv you truly have to be the character because you have to know what the character would say next, not what you would say next. That is another reason I love improv because I don’t have to think like myself. Really, that is why I love acting in general because you don’t have to think like yourself or be yourself that day if you don’t want to. You can be someone totally different! That is what I do!

Mia Rose Frampton

Mia Rose Frampton

You have had the opportunity to work with some truly creative people. For example, you mentioned Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone. What have you picked up from working alongside some of these great people?

I have really been fortunate to work with some many talented people. I was able to work with Ed Harris for my first feature film, ‘That’s What I Am.” I lived in New Orleans and we shot there for a month. He played a teacher in the movie and, man, was he a teacher in real life too with acting. He was super nice and sat with us at lunch and talk. He brought such authenticity to the role and the energy was so palpable in the room. He was amazing to watch. One of the scenes he had was an emotional one in the classroom and it was heartbreaking to watch. That is where I learned you have to really get into the character. He was so into the character it was insane! The same is true when I worked with Kristen Wiig. She and Melissa are the Queens of Comedy! I have been so lucky to work with them. She felt so bad when she would be insulting me. (Check out the epic back and forth between Mia and Kristen – Click Here!) I was like “No, its OK! You are not insulting me!” [laughs] She did not hold back at all. So I was like “Well, you have really saggy boobs, so sorry!” [laughs] I learned to really play off of someone else. She helped me learn that it is not just you in a scene unless it is just you in a monologue type of scene. You really have to listen and work off of each other and that is what she helped me with. Working with Melissa and Susan Sarandon, I mean, who can say they have worked with them. As a young actress, not many people who are my age have worked with her. I feel so lucky! I saw her preparing for a scene where her character is drunk. She was spinning, spinning and spinning to get into that sort of drunken mindset, I guess. I was like “Wow! That is some dedication!” [laughs] She was so funny and so in character. In between scenes, she would still be in character and it would just flow into the next scene. I have had some great experiences and worked with some great actors who have definitely inspired me a lot!

Your roles to date have been pretty diverse. Is there a particular role or genre you are anxious to explore in the short term?

Definitely! I really love drama but I haven’t gotten the chance to work with it yet. My acting coach actually thinks that is what I am best at, so I would love to dive into a very meaty dramatic role! I have had some dramatic monologues here and there but I would love to do a character with multiple layers and who has a lot going on. I would kill for a role like that! [laughs] I am sure it will come very soon!

mia-rose-frampton-2014-1

How do you feel you have evolved as an actor through the years? Is there something that stands out for you?

Touching back on your first question of acting not being for the faint of heart, acting has definitely made me a very different person but for the better. I definitely pushed into adulthood early but not in a way that was harmful. Because of the amazing team I have and my mother and father, who has been in the business for more than fifty years, I have been taught well. I am who I am because of living out here for the past eight years or more! I wouldn’t be the same person without acting. I can say that and truly mean it. It is who I am and I don’t know who I would be without it. I think it has made me a better person. It has made me incredibly humble, which comes from rejection. There is nothing like thinking, “Oh that was a great audition!” Then you hear “No.” [laughs] I have learned you can never predict how anything is going to turn out. The universe has a plan for us and we will never have any idea what it is! I do know that I am going to stick it out for as long as it takes because I can’t do anything else!

Mia and he very talented father.

Mia and her very talented father.

You also dabble in the musical side of things as well, correct?

Yes, I do! I started playing guitar when I was eleven. My Dad taught me “Blackbird” on the guitar, initially!

Is music something you would like to explore professional at some point in the future?

Definitely. I am more focused on acting right now. I feel I want to give it my all and grow in this business first and see if it is the spot I am meant to be in first. Hopefully, I will get a job on a series or movie that I could jump off onto another job. Then I will see about diving into the world of music again. I really love music. It is almost a second skin, opposite my acting side. I want to give it my all. I definitely wouldn’t want to go into either of those worlds and not be fully committed. I have such respect for my Dad and my brother, Julian, who are musicians who give it their all. That is what I intend to do as well. I am going to try my best to become the best guitar player and take vocal lessons, so that I can give it my all.

Obviously, you have had a lot of irons in the fire in recent months. What is on your radar at the moment?

I am going to be attending Chapman University in the Fall, which is in Orange County. I am really excited about that! I picked a school where I could still have a college experience but I could also audition for new projects. I am mainly getting ready for that and preparing to say goodbye to my Mom, getting my dorm ready and all that comes with those experiences. All of my family is coming into town for my graduation, which is on June 9th. I am really busy with that and it is very crazy right now! [laughs]

Mia Rose Frampton

Mia Rose Frampton

I can’t tell you how terrific that is to hear. It is so cool to see someone so well grounded and focused. A breath of fresh air for sure!

Definitely! Ya know, I am from the Midwest. I don’t have these Los Angeles values yet! [laughs] I mean, I do. I guess I am used to the grumbling people in the cars and those things. I am from the Midwest and we are very chill. We don’t meet people with hostility. We love everyone until they mess with us and then we hate you! [laughs] My family still lives in Ohio and I am very excited for them to come out so I can get back to who I really am. If I could do acting in Ohio, I would! My family means the world to me. After this interview, I am going to go play with my nephew who is downstairs and is, literally, the love of my life! His name is Wolfgang and he is the cutest kid you will ever meet!

Those values will surely take you places, Mia. That is terrific. What can you tell us about the charity work you are involved with?

There are so many wonderful organizations I would love to be involved with! I have donated to Unicef in the past (www.unicefusa.org). I just went to “What A Pair,” which is a variety show whose proceeds go towards breast cancer research (www.whatapair.org). I think everyone has been touched by cancer in some way. I have a close family friend who had it and it is awful. I also love the organization that is trying to find a cure for the awful disease of Progeria (www.progeriaresearch.org). I just watched a documentary not too long ago about a young boy with Progeria, who had just passed away after it aired. It hit me very hard because there is no cure and the greatest life expectancy for these kids with the disease is about eighteen. I am eighteen. I am preparing for college and the future, so it is something that is so hard for me to imagine. If I am very lucky enough to become a recognizable name in the industry, I fully intend to use that name to bring that name to bring attention to as many causes as I can. When I make enough money, I will be flinging it at these causes because of the amazing work they do and who needs that much money. We don’t need that much and there are so many causes that need it more than we do.

Very true! Hopefully we can help shine a light on these worthy causes for you, Mia! In the meantime, where are the best outlets for people to learn more about what you are up to?

I ran on Twitter at twitter.com/MiaRFrampton.

Thanks so much for your time today, Mia. It has been a pleasure. You have a lot going on for you, so I have no doubt we will be chatting again in the near future!

Thank you, Jason! I felt like I had a therapy session!

I won’t bill ya for it. This one is on the house! [laughs]

Thank you but please do for the next one! We will talk soon! Have a great day!

Director Liza Johnson Discusses Bringing ‘Hateship/Loveship’ To The Screen

Director Liza Johnson Discusses Bringing ‘Hateship/Loveship’ To The Screen

liza-johnson-2014-2

Adapted from acclaimed author Alice Munro’s iconic 2001 short story, “Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage,” director Liza Johnson brings us the gripping story of “Hateship Loveship.” The story focuses on Johanna Parry (Kristen Wiig), a profoundly shy, unadorned woman who is hired by Mr. McCauley (Nick Nolte) as a housekeeper and a primary caregiver to his granddaughter Sabitha (Hailee Steinfeld). Despite her outgoing nature, Sabitha carries wounds from the death of her mother years before, complicated by the circumstances of that death for which her grandfather still blames her father, Ken (Guy Pearce), a hapless recovering drug addict with a certain ragged charm. In an act of mean-spirited rebellion, Sabitha uses technology to foster a pseudo-relationship between Johanna and her father, never dreaming of the potential harm to either party. Sabitha doesn’t understand that Johanna is not a demure cut-out, but rather a woman for whom the phrase “still waters run deep” could have been coined. The young girl’s interference provokes Johanna to indulge in something long missing from her life: the dream of a future and a home of her own. Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with director Liza Johnson to discuss her career, the making of ‘Hateship Loveship’ and the challenges of bringing it to the screen.

Director Liza Johnson

Director Liza Johnson

I wanted to go back to your early years. What initially attracted you to the world of filmmaking?

I have always loved movies but when I was young, it wasn’t like I always wanted to make movies. When I was in art school, I studied more in a kind of tradition of video and film that you would see in museums or a gallery. Over time, as I worked in that tradition, I kept doing stuff with stuff with performers and things that had a bit of a story in them. At a certain point, I just thought “If I am going to push this work, it would be a movie.” [laughs] I started to think about it and it is a little bit of a different economic context and exhibition context, so I tried to learn. I did things like going to the labs at The Sundance Institute and that helped me understand some of the difference between the tradition I had been working in before and the one I am working in now.

Who were some of the inspirations who helped shaped see the artist we see today?

That is a hard question and always an embarrassing question too. I think it is fine to be aspirational but at times it makes me feel bloated and ridiculous. “Oh yeah, I really like Robert Altman?” If I say that then I am sure people will say, “Yeah, well you are no Robert Altman!” [laughs] For sure the cinema of the 70s has been influential to be, such as Altman and Cassavetes. I also really admire writers and filmmakers that take a really bold point of view. I am not sure I do that in the same way but I feel like writers like Lynne Tillman or directors like Kelly Reichardt inspire me with the way they take a very bold point of view with what they do.

'Hateship Loveship'

‘Hateship Loveship’

Your latest film is “Hateship Loveship.” How did you get involved with this project and what was it about the material that made you want to pursue it in film form?

The screenwriter, Mark Poirier, who is also a lovely literary writer, brought it to me. I think he thought I would be attracted to the main character. He was right! I just really loved the way she comes from a world where it doesn’t do her any good to what the things she can’t have. Then when she has to move into this new world, she really lights on fire with desire for something and has to figure you how to realize her desire. I just found that to be really beautiful and tense when you she her struggle to do that.

Going into shooting, how did you prepare yourself to tackle this film stylistically?

I felt that in some ways it should be in a classical style. I really had a great team on this movie. I worked with the cinematographer, Kasper Tuxen. We looked at a lot of movies that have been shot with available light or work hard to create a style of a realistic, everyday world. I wanted to be accountable for the author of the source material, Alice Munro, who I think is so beautiful at writing the inner lives of everyday people who live in an everyday world. Her characters don’t live in styled, film noire world or a fantasy world. They live in the same world you and I live in. That was important to Kristen [Wiig] too. The first time we ever met we talked about what the world would look like. Kasper has a lot of range as a stylist and was really smart about how available light could make the world feel like the world I wanted to achieve on-screen. We also worked closely with two designers, one of which was Hannah Beachler. She is a production designer who also did the film “Fruitvale Station’. In the tradition I have been working in, I often don’t have an art department and I sometimes just shoot on raw locations, which always brings something to the situation. Usually, there is something accidental in the frame that is unexpected and that can be bad or good. When you have an art department, they can go in there and clean out all the dirt at the location and put back their own perfectly ordered dirt! [laughs] Hannah was a really good collaborator because she was interested in trying to make a controlled world that also feels like it has the randomness and sense of accident that real life has. We shot a lot on real locations. She designed, styled and dressed them but you try to be sensitive to the idea that everyday life has a lot of randomness in it. We tried to make a look that has the quality of realness and surprise. Likewise with the costume designer, she is a very character driven costume designer and she tried to really think about what kinds of clothes would be available to Johanna in the world she is coming from, how would she look different from the other people around her in the new world she goes to. I would say between the three of them, they made a coherent style to the movie that feels like the style of everyday life or something really real, you know?

liza-johnson-2014-5

Absolutely. Another huge part of the realism of this film is your very talented cast. Was it difficult to land the right mix of people to bring it to life?

Actually, it wasn’t that difficult. It was really a great experience. I felt like Kristen would be the right person to play Johanna. I love her work and I think she is wonderfully talented. I also felt that she would be interested in this role thematically. I say that because a lot of the characters she has created are often very funny or broad. From being on Saturday Night Live, you have to convey that character in very short period of time. I felt like the characters I had seen her create, I felt like she would understand this woman. Once she decided to do the film with me, it was not very hard to attach other actors because I think actors are really good observers of one and others work. The first person Kristen and I thought of for the role of Ken was Guy Pearce. Guy Pearce is a really serious, super smart actor and of course, he wanted to be in a movie with Kristen because, well, it is kind of like sports. If you play with someone who is as good as you are; it raises your game. I feel like Guy instantly wanted to do it because he felt like it would be exciting to work with her. I think that was pretty much true throughout the cast. With that said, people who are massively talented like Jennifer Jason Leigh or Christine Lahti were not only attracted to the script and source material but knew it was going to be an ensemble with an incredible level of talent.

liza-johnson-2014-6

You can serve as a terrific inspiration to young filmmakers. What is the best piece of advice you can pass along to those looking to explore a career in filmmaking?

Wow! Well, for me, and it could be different for other people, the thing that has helped me the most is having a really good community of like-minded people who are doing their own project that others may find eccentric! [laughs] Living in a support world of other people who might be directors, actors, writers, scholars or painters and having them not be cynical, believe they can get their work done has been eye-opening. Sometimes it is hard to stay in the game and it really helps to build a world around you where people have common interest and common struggles. That is the thing that has helped me the most.

Thank you so much for your time today, Liza. I enjoyed the film and look forward to spreading the word on this and all of your future projects!

Thank you, Jason. It’s been a pleasure!

Liza johnson’s ‘Hateship Loveship’ hits select theaters and VOD on April 11th.
