Meiling, “Welcome to Chicago! Congratulations to the film, I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I love your performances in the trailer. So, what was the first reaction that you got, when you first got casted in the film that’s focusing on the Nazis family?”

Thomasin, “When I first read this script, immediately this is that kind of script glued to your hand, you can’t put it down, and it is something that I really really want to be a part of, because I know it’s going to be something special. So, when I had the part, I was just over joyed. I think I immediately went downstairs and talked to my grandma, was really really ecstatic. ”

金美翎:“欢迎来到芝加哥。恭喜你的电影刚刚杀青。我还没看过电影,但是看了预告片后,特别喜欢你。当时你刚拿到剧本时看到电影是关于纳粹党的,第一感觉是什么?”

托马辛:“第一次读这剧本时,立马就感到书不释手,超入迷一直不舍得放下。我非常想拿下这个角色,因为我知道这个角色会非常特别。当我被选上时,喜出望外,急忙忙得就下楼通知我的姥姥,当时真的是欣喜若狂。”

Meiling, “Very nice, especially with the phenomenal cast, right? So to someone your age, World War II seems so far away, seems so distanced, how did you prepare for your role to be able to understand the script and the whole concept? ”

Thomasin,“With any role, I approach, you know I prepare I do my research, especially with this one, since it’s about World War II and the holocaust, I want to go into it, just feeling fully prepared, and feeling as confident in terms of knowing the facts and having the knowledges of possibly could. So immediately when I found out I got the role, I read the Diary of Anne Frank, about 4 other books with similar stories, and I used that modern-day tool to find out as much as I could. And the minute when I got to Prague, I was able to kind of. . .  Czechoslovakia was occupied by the Germans during the war, so I was able to walk around Prague, and learn so much about the Jewish history, and the background, and learn about that religion. I spent a lot of time in a synagogue, and the Jewish cemetery, and I spent a lot of time with a historian in the Jewish quarter. And she was able to fill in a lot of the gaps for me. I knew about the facts of the World War II, but I didn’t know what everyday life was like. I spent some time at Theresienstadt the concentration camp just outside of Prague. Some monstrous things happened. Just being there, and hearing about the different stories and the different things happened there. You just learn a lot by being there I think.”

金美翎:“对啊!尤其是可以和这么多出色的演员们合作。做一位一名年轻的演员,你对世界二战的历史距离很遥远,那你当时都是做了什么样的准备工作才近距离了解到二战实情读懂剧本的?”

托马辛:“就像其它很多角色,一旦选上,就需要做很多的功课。尤其是这个关于二战犹太人大屠杀的历史片。我想学得透彻些,该学到的都学懂。在我刚知道入选后,就开始阅读了关于《安妮日记》的书籍,还有其它4本相关的书。又用很多现代查阅工具查找了很多。当时就马上去了布拉格… 二战时捷克斯洛伐克被德国割占。我在布拉格走了很多地方去学习犹太人的历史和背景,学到了很多宗教知识。在犹太会堂里待了很久,还有公墓里。在犹太区里,跟一位历史学家学到了很多,她给我补充了之前没有学到的。之前我知道二战历史,却不熟悉犹太人的日常生活。我也在布拉格郊外的一个泰雷津集中营遗址那里学习到了很多历史。了解到了很多骇人听闻的历史。想要学到当地的历史就得去当地看看,我当时去了布拉格收获很大。”

Meiling, “That’s awesome, that sounds like a lot of crash courses. So how is that so important to tell this story through children’s eyes?”

Thomasin, “I think it’s always important to look at stories that have been told a lot of times from different points of view and through different lens, because it helps us to understand that part of our history, or that story in a different way. I think looking at this time of our history through a child’s eye, I think adults, the older generations that reminded how important their influence is, and how important it is to put goodness out in the world, into promote love and kindness rather than hate. So I think that’s one of the most important things through a ten-year-old’s eyes. ”

金美翎:“这样学习很棒哦!听起来你上了很多速成课,哈哈!那你觉得为什么这故事从一个孩子眼里的角度出发更为重要?”

托马辛:“我认为这种历史故事从孩子眼里表达出来的总是很特别。因为这种方式让我们更为接受,从不同的角度出发。从孩子眼里看历史,针对某些事情,都会以纯真的态度看待事情。这样会影响成人们做事情需要牢记如何善待人,而不是总是充满仇恨。因此,从一个10岁孩子眼里看此事确实非常特别。”
