In “Outer Range,” Imogen Poots Keeps Everyone Guessing

Published

on

Imogen Poots: This new science fiction Western is starring a British actor as an interloper. She said, “The trickery is what made it so much fun.”

Imogen Poots, a trippy science fiction Western series that premieres in its premiere, makes a first impression as an ingenue.

Poots described Poots as a “pretty blonde with long hair, big blue eyes” in a video interview. “And strange, strong teeth,” he added.

Imogen poots made her first big screen

Poots made her first big screen debut at 17 in “28 Weeks Later”, a 2007 sequel about zombies. She said she is not comfortable with the role of the designated girlfriend. She has enjoyed these roles and has matched the intensity of actors like Mark Ruffalo (“I Know This Much Is True”) and Michael Shannon (“Frank and Lola”), but she is actively looking for more complex parts.

She was excited to see “Outer Range” premiere on Amazon Friday. A series can offer a more complex character arc that a two-hour movie. She was determined not to fall into the love interest trap.

Poots, 32 years old, asked her question about her character Autumn Rivers. It happens all the time. You’re given a role that appears to be quite independent, but not a plot device. Then, whoops! Your character makes out with anyone around.

imogen poots:Outer Range

Autumn, a mysterious interloper in “Outer Range”, arrives at Royal and Cecilia Abbott’s ranch (Josh Brolin & Lili Taylor). Most of her arrivals involve a large hole in a pasture that might be a crack in the fabric time. She is more of a catalyst and provocateur than a plot device. When she makes out with someone, it is clear that she is calling the shots.

Poots said, “And she might have an ulterior motive,” adding slyly. Her performance stands out because of her textured line readings in our conversation.

Poots wore a Statue of Liberty shirt for the interview. She lives in London together with James Norton (“Happy Valley”), a British actor. She is a former New York resident and still loves the city. She hopes to purchase an apartment in Brooklyn.

Poots is charming, sincere and charming in conversation. She slips into goofy voices and laughs easily, regardless of whether she’s discussing “strange social hurdles and acrobatics” that she was expecting to see at the Hollywood premiere or why she drinks kombucha in afternoon. She explained that she was going to have coffee but she is a “pathological insomniac” and looked at the bottle. Then she cursed at herself for making such a mistake.

Poots’ “Outer Range” is more difficult to read. Every sentence she writes contains many lines. Lines as simple as “What’s this?” or “Tell my dad I say, “Hi” can be interpreted as either guileless and insidious. Her eyes convey emotion, while her body language conveys another.

Imogen poots:Autumn is still mysterious

Autumn is still mysterious, even as the mysteries unravel. Her manner and expressions suggest she is hiding something and she doesn’t know what to do with it. This keeps the balance between her and other characters and viewers.

Poots talked about Autumn’s bizarre ways and the lessons she learned about how to take up space while still making “Outer Range.” Here are edited excerpts of the conversation.

Although you have no acting training, you have worked with some great actors like Christopher Walken and Olivia Colman. You have tried to learn from these great actors.

I wanted to surround myself with people who were unquestionably better and to work alongside actors who represented the things I care about. They provided a kind of guidance, that was an intentional forging a path.

Josh suggested to me that I take up more space because you are still unsure. I tend to flitter around the edges rather than feel I have a right here. This could be a sign that I have been too involved in student life.

Did you find the oddity of the series and Autumn appealing?

Reflecting on Josh’s words, I see this as an opportunity to let go, no matter how alarming it may seem. It’s amazing that an Englishman can get loose! Historical!

You let loose during a showdown in the final season. Were you nervous?

It’s a great thing that you mentioned the “Yeehaw”, as it was an Imogen addition.

Really?

We were trying to figure how she would react. I nervously said “W-w–what about ‘Yehaw’?” Josh replied, “That’s great. Let’s try it.”

Your make-out scene featuring Billy Tillerson (Noah Reid), who is the Abbotts’ mortal rival, is another all-in moment. This is a very unhinged moment.

It was almost like an art installation. We were discussing whether saliva would be viscous enough and whether it would travel the distance from Noah’s mouth to mine. Larry [Trilling], our amazing director, would shout off-camera: “OK! Now come apart!” It’s not sticking! Go back!” We had no choice but to continue readjusting our tongues. And I’d just say, “So how’s Noah’s wife?”

Autumn is astonished by your unique and unpredicted nature. She responds viscerally to every stimulus and comment. Did you ever be afraid of doing too much?

This felt right. It was easy to imagine, but not too far, how it would feel to live your life as a metaphysical being who truly feels everything.

Moments where you think she is really sweet but you can also interpret it as sexual were moments that I enjoyed. It was the trickery and mixing of emotions that made it so much fun. But I was also nervous. What if the audience sees it and thinks it’s confusing in the wrong direction?

Do you behave or react in a way that is similar to Autumn?

Autumn is like an actor. She can manage people, navigate through situations, and know how to change gears or which tools to use. However, I am not as reckless. I have a lot more questions about what to do. She is bolder than I am and pushes the boundaries.

Autumn is impulsive and seems to have nothing to lose. This must be very liberating, but it could also indicate that she is a sociopath.

Would you jump in that time-hole if you could?

It’s the same as going to the moon. You have to accept death. There is a good chance that you won’t be coming back, and you will lose the people you love. It is dangerous to throw away all you know and your identity. My favorite thought is that I would say “Yeah! Let’s jump into the hole; lets take a look!”

Are you at a point in your career when you are ready to say no to a new girlfriend role?

It is a nice feeling to be more selective. It’s nice to feel like you have earned the right to take a break from producing and proving your rights. You can also feel restless.

In my 20s, I was always working and didn’t do anything that was fun. These are times that I don’t remember, but it’s like revisiting childhood play. I enjoyed a sewing class last year. I am also an avid reader and have a London studio where I can write short stories, paint and just be. It can be difficult to simply sit down and be. It is still something I am trying to figure out.
