Madeleine Stowe Quotes / Quotations

As we were leaving the Huron camp, it was awkward filming. I think that the Huron watching us was there to create tension - maybe we wouldn't get out. Nothing complicated.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


Because of the tension and difficulty, I remember trying to do the silliest things when we weren't rolling cameras, anything to lift the spirits. But once on set, it was important to have full concentration.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


Daniel was a wonderful and trustworthy partner. And a fine prankster as well.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


David kept nagging me, saying that he fully believed in the project. I read it twice more, then finally sat down with Michael to discuss the film.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


For the first two weeks of filming, I remember bristling at some of the occurrences on the set, none of which directly involved me. Then I surrendered to the environment, to Michael's method, and became much happier, even though no one knew what to expect.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


He also didn't like a lock of my hair and said that he couldn't get into the moment without the hair being just right. I quietly knew that he was anxious and that the hairdo wasn't the real issue. But we all let it go and came back to the scene sometime later.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


He was also very clear that the decision to cast me as Cora was all Michael's.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


I genuinely liked all of the cast members very much. Steve had a wicked sense of humor. I remember Russell coming to my rescue, once. I watched Eric evolve before everyone's eyes. Maurice loved what he did, so. He treated his character with respect, down to the costuming.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


I know that Michael met with the studio again and drew the line. In any event, Joe Roth was very proud of the film and the studio had a happy ending.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


I phoned Joe Roth, who was head of the studio at the time, and told him how beautiful the film was, and that I was fully ready to support it, that Michael's work was wonderful and I imagined that Daniel would feel the same. He listened quietly and read between the lines.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


I remember feeling that Michael was extremely sensitive when it came to that moment. Most directors are and they usually rely, at least in my experience, on the actress to take over. And Michael is a gentleman.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


I remember nearly having a fit of the giggles during the reading because dear Daniel was SO respectful and serious and I was finding the whole situation funny because I was speaking to his profile.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


I remember the day vividly and how proud Russell felt to be an actor. Something clicked in him as he gave his last speech, and he was so happy.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


I'm reticent to say much more, but we would like to begin in the coming year. We'd like to shoot through the seasons because of the passage of time. This project is the great love of my life.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


I've never returned to the locations. I do remember certain days more clearly than others and certain locations with a sense of nostalgia. Perhaps one day, I'll bring my daughter to see them, if she's interested.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


In the 90's action pictures were all the rage. As a woman, I was fed up with them and I initially thought that the script was just another action film dressed up as a period piece.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


It was exactly what was released two months later with the exception of a couple of reaction shots which we went back in to get. I liked the movie very much and asked him what the studio's problem was. I felt that he was at a point where they might have worn him down.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


It was treacherous. I think someone was injured. But I did love being there, we all did.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


Michael insisted that the accent be less formal and more in keeping with what he called the "rhythms" I had used in my initial reading. Wanting things to be right, I've always been troubled by that decision. Michael responds to things emotionally and his instincts had to be trusted.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


Michael is a funny character, for whom I have a great deal of affection. He sat across his desk and seemed to be a bit of a blunt fellow. We began talking about the characters and he opened up about his vision.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


Michael was very specific during rehearsals. When he was pleased, he always had this charming grin.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


Michael would take us on location and see how the colors worked in the forests and fields.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


My driver Kellie Frost and I would race these fellows home and they were always faster on the highway. We did the same with Daniel and his driver, and thus began a long series of jokes and competitions to alleviate the impossible hours and tensions this film provoked.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


Part of Michael's uniqueness, I think, comes from the fact that he worked with music. He had a tape which he gave me with many different compositions, really eclectic. These pieces of music were sources of inspiration.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


Saving Milly was a break from this effort because I felt that it was time to be part of something that could shed light on a disease everyone feels they know, when most know so little.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


Sometimes I'll turn the channel and there's the movie and I can honestly say that those last few minutes always fascinate me. It's one of the rare instances when image, music, and drama work effectively.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


The emotion, and surrender was what was important to Michael and I believe he used most or all of what we shot.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


The Kiss scene was attempted three times. The first was in a peculiar spot of the fort on the ground level. It felt forced to me, and I knew right away that, in spite of what others were saying, it was dead wrong.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


The next day at work, I went straight to Daniel and told him so, saying something to the effect that "It was my fault". We told Michael my opinion (and this was unusual), he thought it over, watched dailies (which we were not allowed to see) and came back and said "You're right".
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


The scene was attempted a second time, up on top of the fort, and cameras didn't even roll. Michael, though he wasn't admitting it, wasn't sure how to shoot the scene.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


The weather was turning cold and I remember that Dante was using nothing but natural light as his electric department was away, prepping the scene in the cave. We stayed on that rock for the whole day.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


There came a point in time when Michael was under a great deal of pressure to alter the film in a way that was just disturbing to him. I had not seen the movie, yet. He phoned me in July of '92 to look at his version.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


There were mornings in the make-up trailer where I'd have fits of laughter because of the extraordinary daily events of the shoot. Sometimes, it was all too much to believe. But the wildest things happened.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


We were all so different, temperamentally from one another, it's impossible to believe that we were together for so long. The cast and crew. How could we be more different from one another? It's difficult to imagine. But something lovely came of it.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


Working on the accent helped, enormously. I will tell you that when I brought Michael a correct "British" accent, one that my dialect coach was happy with, he hated it.
Quotation of Madeleine Stowe


Yes, the marriage proposal was shot. Michael excluded the dialogue from the final edit.
