”Flowers are indeed one of the most beautiful and complex structures found in nature, specifically designed to achieve the purpose of reproduction.” ”This is a new series I have embarked on – exploded flowers which are images that show the radial symmetry of flowers, and also individual floral components.”
As [FOX’s] Kevin Relly joked about, you have a reputation as “the ingénue finder.” What was it about Anna that jumped out for you?
Abrams: [Pointing towards the attractive Torv, standing a few feet away] Well, she’s just so damn ugly. No, the thing is that honestly we saw many, many, many really good actors, and there’s that thing you’re looking for that clicks. It often is just sort of an indescribable, strange quality. It was getting really down to the wire and a casting agent showed me this audition tape that Anna did for something else, an Australian show. And I just knew that was her, even though she wasn’t reading our dialogue. Then we sent her five pages and she auditioned with that and it confirmed it. She came out and got the job.
There are things that I know. But there are things that I do not. Various possible futures are happening simultaneously. I can tell you all of them, but I cannot tell you which one of them will come to pass. Because every action causes ripples, consequences both obvious and… unforeseen.
