Eric Sheffer-Stevens

Interview with Eric

Friday, November 8, 2013

Three years ago, I had the good fortune to interview Eric Sheffer Stevens here on this blog. So when I heard about his new movie, I reached out to see if he'd be up for another chat. Luckily, the answer was yes, so earlier this week, I sat down on the phone with him and had a great conversation. I'll be posting it in sections over the next week or two. Enjoy!

Eric Sheffer Stevens talks long takes, ‘Silent House’ and working with Elizabeth Olsen

Open Road Films and Liddell Entertainment’s Silent House opens today in wide release. The pic, which premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, was co-directed by filmmaking duo Chris Kentis and Laura Lau, who initially made a splash back in 2004 with Open Water. The screenplay was written by Laura Lau and based on the Uruguayan film La Casa Muda, written by Oscar Estevez.


The film is orchestrated to appear as though it was shot in one take. There’s less than 12 cuts in the film, which means that every scene is a long, challenging prospect for the actors involved. Earlier this week I spoke with Eric Sheffer Stevens (pictured left; “I Hate My Teenage Daughter”, Julie And Julia), who plays Peter in the film, about the difficulties of performing under the conceit’s restrictions as well as what it was like working with the then unknown Elizabeth Olsen.

Interview with Eric

Monday, November 29, 2010

Welcome to my interview with Eric Sheffer Stevens! This incredibly talented actor of stage and screen was kind enough to sit down with me (via phone) a couple of weeks ago for a wide-ranging conversation, which will be shared over the next few days on my blog. Today, we talk about the differences between film, stage, and TV, how acting is like writing, and how his creative process has changed over the years.

One thing I noticed as I was looking at your resume, you’ve worked in all the major areas of acting – primetime, daytime, stage, film, commercial. Just wondering what’s different between them for you, or is there a difference, in terms of the way you work or the experience you get out of it?
