BEHIND THE SCENES
What Is On Screen Chemistry?
Mini Interview with Kieren Hutchison
28 October 2006
Kieren Hutchison: I don't know. On screen chemistry... I think a lot of it to me seems to be in the eye of the beholder, you know. People will watch people on screen and go: 'great chemistry'.
I think, when you're one of those actors in the scene, it's kind of difficult to... I don't think you should be thinking about it, if you know what I mean. It's something that's kind of there or it isn't. If you're just relaxing and are open to the other actor then hopefully something happens.
It's kind of like this magic thing. That's why everybody is talking about it like chemistry or no chemistry. But for me it's kind of for other people to judge. I'm not gonna sit there and judge whether I have great chemistry with somebody, you know. It's playfulness, it's openness, playing the scene and everything. Cross your fingers.
Have you ever had a crush on a co-star?
Kieren: A co-star? In the past. I'm married right now, so no, not anymore (laughs). But before I was married, absolutely. Sure. It's all fun.
