Quotes from Vera Farmiga

• “It was a breakthrough in the sense that this was the first time I was given an opportunity to play such a fully dimensional, complex character. I’ve always worked steadily in projects that either came in under the radar, weren’t successes, or were flat-out not good. I thought I had no chance; I thought it would be the same old story–one of the Kates [Cate Blanchett or Kate Winslet] would get it. But I met with Debra, and, I don’t know, my vision and her vision of it clicked. It was pretty incredible of her to cast me despite [my] having no box office clout.”
