In celebration of Entourage hitting the big screen, Emmanuelle Chriqui discussed her character and the filming process.
Fans have been waiting three and half years for the Entourage film and it’s finally here, bigger and better than ever. Directed by the same man who created the show, Doug Ellin, Entourage finds the beloved characters Vincent Chase, Eric, Turtle and Johnny and Ari Gold face their biggest challenge yet. Entourage features the original cast from the television show including Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Dillon, Jeremy Piven and Emmanuelle Chriqui. Will Vincent Chase be able to pull off directing and starring in his own movie solidifying his place in hollywood? Will Johnny “Drama” finally be recognized for his work? Will Ari get fired or pull off the riskiest decision of his career? The answers to all these questions lie in the film. Featuring cameo appearances by Jessica Alba, Liam Neeson, Mark Wahlberg, Kid Cudi, T.I., Armie Hammer, Billy Bob Thornton, Bob Saget and many more, watch as the characters we’ve known for so many years mature and reach new heights. We were fortunate enough to talk Emmanuelle Chriqui who plays Sloan, Eric’s (Kevin Connolly) baby mother. Emmanuelle filled us in on what it was like picking up after three years as well as some movie spoilers, so check out our exclusive interview below:
He’s amazing. I felt like for the film there’s no better situation than having the creator of the show direct the movie. He knows specifically what he wants and knows how to get it. it was awesome to have Doug be the director.
Your character is kind of put in this awkward situation of possibly taking E back, in real life do you think you would handle that situation differently?
Yeah, I don’t know if in real life that would’ve worked out. I’m not as patient or as cool as Sloan is. I don’t think and I would have been able to forgive him.
What was the most surprising thing about filming?
The most surprising thing about filming was how normal it felt. There was no adjustment period even though three and a half years had passed and I would say that’s pretty surprising and that’s just a testament to what we shared on the show.
What was your favorite scene from the movie?
I re-saw the ending and it kind of brought tears to my eyes. I was so moved by the whole thing that happens to Drama’s character with all of us being there. I gotta say that’s one of my favorite moments for sure.
Can you tell us about some of your upcoming projects?
I am currently shooting a television show on TNT called Murder in the First with Taye Diggs and Kathleen Robertson and that starts to air on June 8, my character is tough as nails she’s half Israeli and half Latin and really street smart. I also have an independent film coming out called “the steps” with Jason Ritter, that’ll be coming out next year.
What are some of the bigger differences, aside from the budget, between filming a big blockbuster like entourage as opposed to an independent film?
I think on a super low budget you just kind of move faster through the day because you have less days to shoot. You have to come ready with your a game and be ready to knock it out in like 3 or 4 takes whereas on a studio film you might have 3 or 4 days. Luxury of time is the biggest difference.
