ドラマ「エージェント・オブ・シールド」でジェマ・シモンズ役を演じるエリザベス・ヘンストリッジさんが、今週放送の同作ファイナルシーズン 第9話 「As I Have Always Being」で監督デビューしました。
This is one of my favorite humans, the lovely @lil_henstridge on day one directing tonight’s episode of #agentsofshield – her first. We put this sign on her chair because she’d prepared tirelessly, constantly for over a year and it was already clear she was killing it. However, none of us realized just how deep the killing would go. For her first time directing, Elizabeth took one of the most complex, challenging episodes in the 7 seasons of our show – a time loop Groundhog Day riff by the incomparable @drewzgreenberg that jumps from laughs to heartbreak at a breakneck pace and she. Knocked it. Out of. The park. And she was nice to everyone all the time and she somehow made it look easy. Check it out. You’ll thank me. Love you @lil_henstridge When can we do it again?
Haha!! I’m just such a proud mama here! 🥰@Lil_Henstridge was born to direct! Super prepared, smart & always fun & loving. Can’t wait for you to watch this ep!👏🏼👏🏼@DrewZachary wrote a great, crazy difficult script. ❤️❤️Enjoy!— Ming-Na Wen (@MingNa) July 22, 2020
TONIGHT 10pm @ABCNetwork https://t.co/0djo8kxjFO
I met Elizabeth at a bar 8 years ago. My friend Zach said he met this incredible girl, and he wanted me to meet her to see what I thought. I remember meeting her and immediately feeling her warmth and her genuine kindness. I felt so at ease with her. She radiated a special something I can’t quite put into words. Unbeknownst to me, (or her) a year or so later, we would both be cast in a show called Agents of Shield. It was just a pilot episode, we didn’t know if it would get picked up, or what would happen. I was so young and I was terrified, but I remembered how at ease I was with Elizabeth, we had only met once, but it was a feeling I didn’t forget. For young women, Hollywood can be an unnecessarily terrifying place to navigate. And holy fuck it has it been a wild ride… but guys…what. would. I. have. done. without. my. LIL ?! A beacon of light. The most generous and thoughtful cast mate, friend, sister, and now DIRECTOR. From that FIRST table read season 1 when we were anxiously talking about grapes by the fruit platter, to season 7 watching you effortlessly step in to direct one of the most logistically difficult episodes we’ve ever had… it’s surreal. You were made for this. You quietly commanded respect, you brought out the best performances from both the cast and crew, you were more prepared than even the most seasoned directors, and THEN you got in front of the camera yourself, and annihilated every scene you were in. I remember seeing you that first day on set. My eyes welled up watching you with your sparkly director headset, your sparkly new engagement ring (to Zach!!)…. and…it was dreamlike. Somehow that moment turned into a marker of time. It sharpened the reality of how far we had come since we had met. At that bar, years ago. Unaware of what was to come. I felt a feeling of love and pride I haven’t really felt before. Ive never had a sister, but I imagine that’s what it feels like. Sooooo, to my sister, my dear lil…I love you. You directed the absolute shit out of this episode. I’m sorry this post is a soppy mess riddled with terrible grammar, but I’m just excited/overwhelmed/totes emosh. GO WATCH TONIGHT!
It’s a good day because @lil_henstridge directed tonight’s #agentsofshield. Elizabeth is one of the most gifted and generous actors I’ve ever been around.. but when she got her first shot at directing, the rest of us watched in awe as she delivered one of the best episodes of the entire show. It was a privilege to be in her directorial debut, and it’s going to be the first of many. Watch and see 📺
Tonight’s episode of #agentsofshield is a special one.— Natalia Cordova (@YOSOYCORDOVA) July 22, 2020
