Emma Dumont Interview

BT: How do you enjoy filming The Gifted in Atlanta?
ED: Oh, it’s amazing. I love Atlanta so much! Our show was set in Atlanta for season 1 and in season 2 it’s obviously set in Washington, D.C., so we shoot more on the stages this year because it’s easy to get Atlanta to play Atlanta, but getting Washington D.C. is a different story. [laughs] But it’s been great, I really enjoy it. Georgia is obviously in the South and in history there have been a lot of similar struggles there that the mutants are facing in the show, and I think that’s super important and very cool that we get to shoot in a place that has seen these things in real life. I love it. I love Georgia. Atlanta is an amazing city, it’s so beautiful.
BT: You have a lot of personal pursuits too.
ED: Yeah! I do. [laughs] I’m a big nerd, I have a lot of different interests. Later today I’m actually going to a banjo lesson because I randomly decided at 24 years old that I wanted to play the banjo! [laughs] It’s so stupid. But why not?! I mean, it’s great. I’ve been trained in classical ballet since I was three, that’s not really something you get to leave so easily. Once you’re a dancer, you’re always a dancer and it really helps my work. Just being physical in some way, it helps characters. Actually, later this year, I’m playing a character that’s much more physical than even Lorna is, a comic book character called Razor, from the comics Razor. So I’m taking Krav Maga and continuing my ballet training for that. So yeah, I love music and I love robotics and engineering, and those things will always be my personal passions, but the dance for some reason, it really comes in handy on set. [laughs]
BT: Do you feel like you were destined to play the role of Razor?
ED: Yeah, I do a little bit, and I hope everyone else feels the same way. We’ll see, we’ll come to find out. But I do kind of feel like it was destiny. You know, when you read a script, and you’re like “that’s me!”, that’s a really weird feeling. Not that I am an assassin or anything like that [laughs], but the main core of this character is that she has several sides to her: she has a really soft sweet little girl side who misses her dad desperately, and then she ends up leading a gang of women, and she has this fierce leader side of her that you don’t want to mess with, and then she has another romantic side. There’s so many pieces of her, and I’m just like: “that’s me, that’s me, that’s me!”. Also if you just look at the comics, she looks so much like me it’s like ridiculous. [laughs] The comic creator Everett Hartsoe said that when he first saw a picture of me, he was like “That’s Razor. That’s my Razor! She looks so much like her, it’s crazy”. The big green eyes, the black hair, the pale skin—it’s also just emotionally loving this girl. I feel like I look a lot like her, so you know, it sort of worked out. [laughs]
BT: How much do you enjoy transforming on screen?
ED: Honestly, I’m obsessed. My one thing is I never want to play the same character twice and I’m so lucky that I haven’t. So yeah, it’s wild. I love changing my hair colour. The last show I was on, before T@gged and The Gifted, was called Aquarius, and it was on NBC and it was about Charles Manson. I played a 16-year-old girl and they painted me up in a tan every day and my hair was strawberry dark blonde and I just looked so different than myself, which was amazing and so fun. Even going from Zoe on T@gged to Lorna on The Gifted, we actually film those at the same time. So obviously we’re going to have the same hair colour, we’re going to look the same. But for me, it’s really important to make them different people, so you know, Lorna’s hair, even though it’s green, but sometimes it’s black for flashbacks, I want that to look very different than Zoe’s hair and I want their eyebrows to look different. So much of it is on the shoulders of the hair and make-up department and I am so grateful to work with the talented people with whom I have been able to work. Just for me, it’s very important because I never want to look just like Emma. I never want people to be like “Oh, that’s just Emma playing a role”, or “Oh, she has black hair again. Oh, she’s pale again”. There’s so much you can do with make-up and hair and obviously, with something like The Magicians, the effects make-up was above and beyond amazing and outstanding, so that’s a whole different ballgame. My favorite part is creating a character that looks different from every other character I’ve played. I love Melissa Leo for that reason. I’ll be watching a film and I won’t realize until halfway through that it’s Melissa Leo. She’s a true chameleon, and that’s who I hope to be a chameleon.
