You and Josh Radnor both attended Kenyon College in Ohio where the film was shot. So this was kind of a reunion for you?
I was thrilled to get to go back and see my old professors. We both had the teacher that Josh based the character on … I was trying to channel her. Every word was well chosen and she had this cadence that was slow and honey-dripped; it was endlessly fun to do imitations of her. We were there when school wasn’t in session so I had the opportunity to walk around and have memories come back without other students around – it was kind of magical. I got to go back to the room where I lost my virginity.
A good experience I hope?
It was a lovely moment. I had two memorable moments at Kenyon: The first was working with Paul Newman, who directed me freshman year, and that was incredible to have that experience. Not too long after that I got the boyfriend – probably due to my working with Paul Newman. I had that Paul Newman magic sprinkled on me.
