In projects, there is no one right way to choose roles, but in most cases an actor gives an audition and then finds out through his manager or agent whether he got the part. However, Anna Lohr had a very different experience when she discovered that she had landed the role of Kim in Them/They.
In an interview with Coil and moreLaure remembered the day she found out she got the role. According to the actress, she was scheduled to have a Zoom call with Them/Them director John Logan. Although she said she was very nervous as she didn’t yet know if she had been selected and wanted to make a good impression, the call didn’t live up to Lore’s expectations and even ended up giving her the best possible news. “It was just the most low-key phone call ever,” Lohr said. “He’s just the sweetest, warmest guy and he told me on Zoom that I got the part.”
Logan’s surprising sincerity towards Laure is in line with how he approached working with The They/Them cast, as the director said he wanted to consult directly with his stars to make sure the film accurately portrays the struggles of LGBTQIA+ youth. “There was a very open communication between the actors and me,” the director said in an interview. Strange review. “They were basically responsible for the credibility of their characters.”
