Emma Bell – On Doing a Comedy and Laughing Yourself to a Great Abs
Known for gritty dramatic roles like Amy in Walking Dead and Emma Ryland on Dallas, Emma Bell is stepping in to some unfamiliar territory with her new film, The Argument which is streaming now on Amazon Prime, Google Play, and YouTube. "I don't really get a chance to do a lot of comedies," Bell stated, "so for me I was very intimidated, honestly, walking in to this project. But Robert Schwartzman, our director, just had total faith that I could do it, that I could pull it off. And I gotta say we were lucky because we had a week of rehearsals which were so helpful because we were able to find every character and really just improvise and play around with our choices and figure out what worked and what didn't work."
Joining Bell on screen are some of the funniest comedic actors and actresses in Hollywood; Fantastic Beasts' Dan Fogler, Divergent's Maggie Q, Community's Danny Pudi, and Last Man on Earth's Cleopatra Coleman. "It's full of amazing, amazing actors. I felt very honored to be a part of it," said Bell.
With so much comedic talent in one room, working on this film turned out to be a wonderfully fun experience for Bell. "I always joke that I think I added another ab to my 3-pack, let's call it, doing this movie because I laughed so much."
