she seemed tiny to me; delicate; and very lovely, with short hair and porcelain doll features, and those big, intelligent orphan eyes. she was filled with excitement, goodwill, and nerves. in the subsequent days Winona hurled herself into the part as if she were jumping off a building- with total commitment. on set Winona asked a lot of questions. she always asked in a sweet, quiet, yet persistent way. you can tell that, as unpretentious as she is, this is a woman who thinks a part down to its dregs. far from imperious or demanding, Winona is quietly stubborn, sure of how she wants to present herself in every detail. if there are two words i would use to describe Winona, they are ‘elusive’ and ‘disarming’. she isn’t easy to pin down, and shes a great changer of plans. i sense she lives very much in the present in her own emotional reality, and she remains true to that. she’s eccentric, her own person, with her own style, she follows no one. i think its most important for her to be a good and moral person. i hope that if Winona continues to get the parts she deserves, she’ll be remembered as one of the best.
